Where Is Aunt Becky? Character’s Absence Explained on Final Season of ‘Fuller House’ as Lori Loughlin Faces Jail Time

From the Full House to the big house. Well, at least Lori Loughlin, who is most famously known for her role of Aunt Becky on the wholesome and cheeky family series that debuted in the 80s, has agreed to plead guilty to paying people off to get her daughter’s into college.

Meanwhile, Fuller House, which dropped its final season on June 2nd, explained Aunt Becky’s absence in a less dramatic way. 

In a brief scene, Uncle Jesse informs the Tanner-Fuller-Gibbler clan that Aunt Becky is taking care of her mother in Nebraska. In other words, she’s not involved in criminal activity like Loughlin. 

The character isn’t mentioned again, but her absence is felt throughout moments in the series, particularly in the series finale as the three leading ladies wed their soulmates in a triple wedding. 

It’s unfortunate that Aunt Becky suffered because of Loughlin’s actions.

In th real world, Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $50,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as fake crew team recruits.

According to CNN, Loughlin will plead guilty to the following crimes: conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.

Her agreements require her to serve two months in prison. 

Her husband will plead guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. He’ll serve five months in prison. 

Loughlin also faces a $150,000 fine, two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service, according to the news source. He will get $250,000 fine, two years of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.

They are reportedly set to plead guilty on Friday, per prosecutors. 

The scandal has, understandably, rocked Loughlin’s world and cost her some longtime acting gigs on her Hallmark Channel series, Where Calls the Heart, and the Full House spinoff, Fuller House. As it enters its fifth and final season, the Netflix will move forward without her character.

It’s a hard lesson to learn, but don’t try to bribe your children’s way into college. 

While I’ve always loved Lori Loughlin in every production (mainly cause I thought of her as my own Aunt Becky), if you have the nerve to dish it, you have to know how to take it.

When Does 'Firefly Lane' Season 2 Come Out?

The wait is almost over! 

Netflix is allowing fans to reunite with the Firefly Lane girls on December 2, 2022!

FireFly Lane Season 2 Part 1 will debut on Friday at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m ET and 2 a.m. CT) on the streaming service, and while that may be very late in the night, the good thing is you’ll have all weekend to catch up with Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke). 

 

Why Is Kate Mad at Tully at the End of Firefly Lane Season 1?

The biggest question on everyone’s mind is why is Kate so mad at Tully. At the end of the first season, it’s revealed that Kate’s father, Bud, died, but when her best friend Tully arrives at the church, Kate tells her that she has “some nerve showing up here.” Season 2 Part 1 will hopefully answer what led to the rift between Kate and Tully in 2004/2005.

 

How Many Episodes in Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 1?

The season will have a total of nine episodes. 

Part 2 of the season is set to arrive sometime in 2023 with episodes 10 through 16. 

 

Who Died on Firefly Lane Season 1?

Bud, Kate’s father, passed away in the first season. Kate and Tully are at his funeral when it’s revealed that they are not on speaking terms anymore despite a decades-long friendship.

 

Firefly Lane Season 2 Cast

The key cast of the upcoming second season includes:

  • Katherine Heigl – Tully Hart
  • Sarah Chalke – Kate Mularkey
  • Ali Skovbye – ’70s Tully Hart
  • Roan Curtis – ’70s Kate Mularkey
  • Ben Lawson – Johnny Ryan
  • Beau Garrett – Cloud/Dorothy Hart
  • Yael Yurman – Marah
  • India de Beaufort – Charlotte/Charlie
  • Greg Germann – Benedict Binswagner
  • Jolene Purdy – Justine Jordan
  • Ignacio Serricchio – Danny Diaz

 

Firefly Lane Season 2 Synopsis

What could possibly have ended the tight-knit thirty year friendship of Tully and Kate, our “Firefly Lane Girls Forever?” We’ll learn the answer this season — but first — Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq, while Tully faces a lawsuit after walking away from her talk show, and must start her career over from the bottom. This leads her to search for answers about who she is and where she comes from — including a quest to find the father she never met, against the wishes of her secretive hippie mother, Cloud. In the ’80s, we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love, creating more than a little drama in the newsroom where they work, as Tully’s career rises and she spars (and flirts!) with cocky sportscaster Danny Diaz. She just might have met her match — that is, if they can stop arguing for five minutes. While in the ’70s, teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together as Cloud goes to jail for dealing drugs and Tully goes to live with her grandmother, far away from Firefly Lane. As the girls face the tumult of high school apart, they know the one thing they really need is each other.

‘Emily in Paris’ Season 3—Premiere Date and Trailer

Published

When Is Season 3 of Emily in Paris Coming Out?

Netflix is giving Emily in Paris fans the best holiday gift of all—a brand new season. 

The third season of the Paris-set dramedy is set to premiere on Wednesday, December 21. 

New shows are typically released globally at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time. 

Fans can also unwrap an early gift as the streamer just dropped the trailer for the new season, which reveals Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) is pulling double-duty in both her professional and personal life.

Her indecision has left her in a bit of a mess, as she’s now juggling two jobs—her old gig with Madeline (Kate Walsh) and a gig at Sylvie’s new agency (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu). On top of it, her heart is also being pulled in two different directions as she’s torn between chef Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) and businessman Brit Alfie (Lucien Laviscount). 

And based on the 2-minute trailer, her decisions will have plenty of consequences. 

But don’t think that Emily isn’t carving out time for prioritizing life, as Parisians do, as she informs her gal pal Mindy (Ashley Park) that she’s all about “life” right now.

The work-life balance includes stunning vacations (and a balloon ride),  incredible outfits, plenty of champagne, and much more.

As the trailer suggests, choose Paris… on December 21!
