Lori Laughlin was seen with her arm around Bob Saget’s widow Kelly Rizzo at the Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine: A Tribute To Bob Saget event in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

Rizzo, 43, looked elegant in a form-fitting brown dress that hugged her toned figure, along with her strappy black heels.
She kept accessories to a minimum, wearing only a bracelet, dangling earrings and her wedding ring.
The Full House and Fuller House star will pose solo and then catch Rizzo’s attention for a few minutes on the red carpet.
This comes on the heels of news that Loughlin has been cleared to travel to Canada.
The actress — who spent two months in jail in 2020 after she and husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters Bella and Olivia Jade into the University of Southern California — filed a memorandum of demand for permission to leave the U.S. for filming, and a day later District Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton granted her request.
According to documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, the Massachusetts district has supported the request, and if Laurie accepts the job, she will spend a week working on the unnamed project in September or October.

However, although the judge approved the request, the Canadian government will have the final say on whether the 58-year-old actress – who was also sentenced to two years of supervised release, 100 hours of community service and a $150,000 fine for her part in the scandal – will be allowed in to cross the US border.
In March 2021, insiders told how Laurie was “excited to be back working” after being released from prison.
A source said at the time: “Lori has been offered many opportunities to talk about what she’s been through, but she can’t seem to find the right words. “She’s afraid that whatever she says, people can’t get past it.
Red carpet comeback: In June, Laurie returned to the red carpet, and the following month participated in a televised charity telethon.
“At this point she just wants to move on and focus on the positive.”
In December of that year, she appeared on the GAC show “When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas” and two months later made a public appearance for Kris Jenner’s star-studded Valentine’s Day party.
