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.

3 Comedies Renewed at CBS – Including ‘Ghosts’
Fans are going to be geeked about CBS’s latest renewals!
Three of the network’s six comedies have been given the green light for three comedies.
The most exciting renewals is definitely Ghosts, a single-cam comedy about a woman named Sam (Rose McIver) who gains the ability to see the ghosts living inside the charming old mansions she and her husband, a budding chef, inherited from her late aunt.
The souls of those stuck within the confines of the soon-to-be B&B provide plenty of laughable moments, and their shenanigans have earned them a second season renewal.
The Neighborhood, which stars Cedric the Entertainer, snagged a fifth season, while BOB ♥ ABISHOLA, a love-story between a businessman who falls in love with his nurse, will return for a fourth season.
The LOL comedies join the already-renewed Young Sheldon, which got a three-season renewal in March 2021.
While this is great news for Ghosts, The Neighborhood, and BOB ♥ ABISHOLA, it’s also promising news for B Positive and United States of AI, both sitcoms awaiting a verdict.
Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment, was in a great mood when she gave Variety this statement: “We’re thrilled to bring back television’s four most-watched comedies for next season, and I’m proud of the incredible team that maintains CBS’ position as the clear leader in comedy.”
Let us know in the comments below which renewal you’re most excited about!
