After being arrested in the Operation Varsity Blues scandal, where wealthy parents were caught in bribery schemes to get their kids into elite schools, Lori Loughlin was dealt another blow.
The actress, best known for her role as Aunt Becky on Full House, her role as Abigail Stanton in When Calls the Heart and numerous Hallmark movies, is losing her deal with the Hallmark franchise. After watching developments in the case, Hallmark told the Associated Press in a statement that they will cut ties with Lori going forward.
According to the AP, the parent company of the Hallmark Channel says it was “saddened” by the recent allegations and has stopped development of all productions involving her.
Lori has been a beloved part of a slew of Hallmark Channel movies, including Homegrown Christmas and Garage Sale Mysteries.
Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were arrested for paying $500,000 to have their 2 daughters admitted to the crew team at USC. At the center of the corruption is William Rick Singer, who was charged with racketeering, money laundering and obstruction of justice. Singer would take money from the parent and pay off administration officials and coaches to get give their kids an advantage.
Both Lori and Mossimo have been released on 1 million dollars bail.
