Lori Loughlin Fired From Hallmark, Daughters Drop Out of USC Amid Scandal
Things have gone from bad to worse for disgraced Fuller House star Lori Loughlin and her family following her arrest for participation in a multi-million dollar college admissions scam.
On Thursday, the Hallmark Channel, which was involved in multiple projects with Loughlin, 54, severed ties with the actress.
“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” the company said in a statement. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin, including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third-party production.”
Her other program with the channel, When Calls the Heart, has been canceled for this Sunday and the network is “evaluating all creative options.” The show has just begun its sixth season and was scheduled to run through April.
Meanwhile, Sephora severed ties with her daughter Olivia Jade, 19, amid the scandal. Olivia, a successful YouTube vlogger with millions of followers, had recently released a collection with the beauty brand.
Olivia and her older sister Isabella, 20, both decided not to return to USC for fear of being bullied, TMZ reports. The two girls were not named in the indictment but their parents are both charged with paying $500K to get the girls into the school under the guise of being members of the crew team. Neither has ever been a part of the team.
Both Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Loughlin is scheduled to appear in court in Boston on March 29.
