Lori Loughlin allegedly off ‘Fuller House’ after college admissions scandal
She will allegedly not appear in the show's final season.March 15, 2019
Apparently the final season of Fuller House will be without an Aunt Becky.
This is due to Lori Loughlin’s indictment for her alleged role in a college admissions bribery scheme.
Loughlin was one of dozens of wealthy parents who are charged in the nationwide scandal involving college entrance exams.
Loughlin was a guest actress as her reprised role on the first four-seasons of the show rather than appearing full time.
In addition to Loughlin, Desperate Housewives and Transamerica star Felicity Huffman has also been charged with donating $15,000 in a bribery scheme.
According to the New York Times, 50 people across six states have supposedly paid millions of dollars to bribe elite colleges into accepting their children. Colleges involved in the scandal include Yale, Stanford and the University of Southern California.
Allegedly, some parents attempted to pay a founder of a college prep business, William Singer, to have other people sit their children’s ACT or SAT exams.
Also, the Full House actress is being charged with paying the University of Southern California $500,000. This was for the school to accept her two daughters on the university’s crew, or rowing, team. Through court documents, it was found that neither daughter had prior experience, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
