The college admissions scandal in the US (where this kinda thing is a very big deal) has resulted in actress Lori Loughlin has been dropped by the Hallmark channel.
Loughlin, best known for Fuller House, has built a lucrative brand as wholesome characters on the Hallmark Channel. She starred in When Calls the Heart, telemovies Homegrown Christmas and Northpole: Open for Christmas, and the Garage Sale Mysteries series, which she executive produced.
The Hallmark parent company said in a statement, “We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations. 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.”
There are also suggestions Fuller House is dropping her -she was a guest on the show’s 4 seasons having been a Full House regular.
Loughlin was in Canada shooting for Hallmark when arrests were made but has since surrendered to US authorities.
Meanwhile Desperate Housewives fans recall a plot in Season 1 Episode 5 in which Lynette Scavo (Huffman) tried to get her twin sons into an elite private school, with her husband, Tom (Doug Savant).
After the Scavos end up in a private school bidding war, they learn they will beat out another family for their spots if they can cough up a “donation” of $15,000.
As fate would have it, $15,000 is the exact same amount Huffman stands accused of paying in revelations this week.
You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried….
