Full House actor released on bail in college cheating scam

As Hallmark Channel plots a future without the star of its wholesome When Calls the Heart drama and Garage Sale Mystery TV-movie series, sources tell TVLine that there are now no plans for the embattled Loughlin to reprise her role as Aunt Becky during Fuller House's fifth and final season, which has yet to start production and will premiere on Netflix this fall.

Becky rejects Jesse's attempts to "lie for" their kids, telling him, " know you want what's best for them, but you know what?

According to TMZ, the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed up at Loughlin's house on Tuesday to take her in, but she was not home. It's unknown, of course, if Loughlin will end up serving any time behind bars for her alleged involvement in Operation Varsity Blues. "Back in the '90s, Loughlin was part of a notorious scheme where they made a pair of twins pretend to be one person".

"I'm their father", Uncle Jesse decides.

And then there was that one episode of Full House that may have been a premonition of sorts.

First an awkward interview with William H. Macy resurfaced after his wife, actress Felicity Huffman, was indicted in a major college-admissions scandal.

"Full House" fans reacted to the news by drawing parallels to the show. The admissions officer lets the "embellishments" slide, and later, Jesse and Becky find out that Alex and Nicky did, in fact, get into Bouton Hall.

Loughlin, 54, and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid $500,000 for their daughters Isabella, 20, and YouTube star Olivia Jade, 19, to attend University of Southern California as crew team recruits - though the girls allegedly never even were rowers.

Huffman has been charged with paying $15,000 to participate in an exam cheating scam. The plan relied upon the daughter taking the test at a specific center with a proctor who was in on the scheme.

Loughlin and fellow actor Felicity Huffman, of Desperate Housewives fame, are among 50 people charged in an alleged criminal enterprise to get their children into top universities in the US.

CBS News legal analyst Rikki Klieman told "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday that the parents involved could be facing "serious time" in prison if convicted - not the sitcom-style happy ending Loughlin is used to.
