Page Six reports that Netflix has removed Aunt Becky from “Fuller House,” the spin-off to the ’90s sitcom “Full House” that made stars of John Stamos and the Olsen twins. “The streaming service has booted actress Lori Loughlin from her role in ‘Fuller House’ in the wake of this week’s college admissions scandal,” reports the outlet. . .
Loughlin being dropped from the iconic show that catapulted her to success comes one day after the Hallmark channel announced she would no longer be a featured talent.
“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” Hallmark Channel’s parent-company Crown Media said in a statement to Fox News. “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. We are evaluating all creative options related to ‘When Calls the Heart’ series.”
Loughlin was released from police custody on a $1 million bond this week after being charged for participating in a massive college bribery scheme the FBI code-named “Operation Varsity Blues.” She and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have been accused of “agreeing to pay $500,000 in bribes to have their two daughters designated as recruits for the University of Southern California crew team,” according to a Fox News report on Thursday.
As a result of the charges, E News reports that a source says Loughlin and her husband’s life has become a “terrible nightmare,” with the family now living in seclusion. (Read more from “Aunt Becky Booted From ‘Fuller House’ for College Bribery Scandal” HERE)
