'Full House' co-stars refuse to talk about Lori Loughlin scandal

'Full House' co-stars refuse to talk about Lori Loughlin scandal

She, along with over 40 other people, were indicted in a supposed college admissions cheating scandal.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in MA released a statement yesterday regarding the scandal. Huffman, who was also charged in the scandal, allegedly paid $15,000 for her older daughter's answers to be changed on the Saturday.

"We know a lot of people in that circle and it was really shocking", she said. Because of this, she and her husband have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Twitter has been filled with plenty of hilarious memes, many using some of Full House's best-known phrases and jokes.

The "Be True to Your Preschool" episode aired in season 6 of the show. The episode revolves around Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky's attempts to get their twins, Nicky and Alex, into Bouton Hall, "the best pre-school in the Bay Area". Jesse lies about the twins' academic abilities to try to get them in. He writes that the children speak multiple languages, play an instrument, and that he is a diplomat.

Of course, Becky rejects Jesse's attempt to scam for his children, and the two decide not to do it.

The difference between real life and the family friendly sitcom is that at the end of the 30-minute episode, Jesse and Becky learned their lesson and came clean about lying on the application.

On Tuesday, March 12, actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were named as part of an investigation called Operation Varsity Blues. The actress was away filming in Vancouver. Loughlin was taken into FBI custody in Los Angeles Wednesday and released on $1 million bond as part of the investigation into a massive college admissions scam.

"Well, it looks like Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are heading back to TV", Meyers said, as an above-shoulder graphic featured the Desperate Housewives and Full House stars "newly cast" in Netflix's Orange Is the New Black.

The couple are accused of getting their daughters admitted to USC by paying $500,000 for them to be designated as recruits for the school's rowing team, despite the fact that neither of them rowed, according to Tuesday's indictment out of Boston.

Huffman has two daughters with husband William H. Macy including Sofia, who is 18, and 16-year old Georgia.
