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.

WATCH: The New ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Is Dark AF

WATCH: The New 'Pretty Little Liars' Is Dark AF

‘A’ is not messing around in the Pretty Little Liars spinoff Original Sin.

If you thought we’d seen the last of ‘A’… think again. The masked stalker is back to torment a new group of little liars on the HBO Max series. 

The ten-episode season will debut Thursday, July 28 with three episodes. Two new episodes will follow on August 4 and 11, with the final three episodes debuting on August 18.

A new teaser for the series reveals the tone is going to be much darker than the original ever was, and that’s likely thanks to Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) who serves as writer and co-executive producer. 

Check out the teaser — complete with a new version of the intro song “Secret.”

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin synopsis: Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in present day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago…as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: ORIGINAL SIN, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.

WATCH: ‘Boo Bitch’ Trailer Starring Lana Condor & Zoe Colletti is Hauntingly Hilarious

WATCH: 'Boo Bitch' Trailer Starring Lana Condor & Zoe Colletti is Hauntingly Hilarious

If we were to give you only one reason why Boo Bitch needs to be on your radar this TV season, it would be the title alone. Name a better show title… I’ll wait. 

A close second? To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Lana Condor takes the lead as a ghost… sort of. 

But despite the name, the series is anything but scary. The eight-episode live-action YA limited series is actually a haunting comedy that follows Condor’s Eric Vu, a play-it-safe high school senior who decides the change things up the same night she gets hit by a truck and winds up, well, dead. 

Erika wakes up and finds herself standing over her own body, she realizes she’s now part of the undead. From nerd to ghost, it’s quite the transition, I might add. 

But she’s not a ghost in the typical fashion. For starters, she can’t walk through doors, everyone can see her, and she can touch people, though, she’s not entirely sure if you can get pregnant while being a ghost, which is a fair question when you’re in high school and crushing! Are ghost babies a thing? Again, valid question, and good on her for being responsible when the possibilities are endless when you’re neither living nor dead. 

She realizes she’s landed upon a “loophole,” ie. “I can stick around if I’m more famous in death than in life.”

Can Erika find a way to make something of her second chance and convince the universe that she deserves to be alive?

The series also stars Zoe Margaret Colletti as Erika’s best friend Gia, who gives new meaning to the word “ride or die.”

Condor defintiely dominates the spotlight as Erika, and the role allows her to show off a more comedic side to her acting, but Colletti, who is newer to the screen, presents as a promising sidekick. Colletti’s credits include Annie, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, City on a Hill, and Fear the Walking Dead

Boo, Bitch will be available on Netflix starting July 8.
