The college admissions scandal
Lori was last seen on TV playing her role in Season 6 of the original Hallmark series. She is known for her portrayal as Aunt Becky in ABC sitcom Full House and its sequel Fuller House. She was sentenced to jail time for two months for her role in the admissions scandal.
The admissions scandal put a very bright light on some celebrities who were involved in paying college officials for their kid’s college admissions. Loughlin and her husband reportedly paid half a million dollars for their daughter, Olivia Jade, to get into USC. The actress is still on probation but has been given an allowance to travel for the production project.
The actress was fired by Hallmark channel in the wake of Operation Varsity Blues, which exposed the group of wealthy parents who allegedly paid bribes to college officials. Along with Loughlin, many of the celebrities and other wealthy parents plead guilty.
