Why Hollywood Won’t Cast Lori Loughlin Anymore SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : Lori Loughlin is best known for one big role: Aunt Becky on the ’80s and ’90s comedy hit Full House, and the Netflix follow-up Fuller House. She’s continued to work steadily in the entertainment industry ever since her big break, but her career never really took off. Now, her indictment in a massive college admissions scandal could actually destroy her future in Hollywood. Let’s dive into the scandal, plus look at a few more reasons Loughlin hasn’t been everywhere you look.
If Loughlin was having trouble finding quality roles before the big scandal, it’s going to be a whole lot tougher now. Loughlin was among fifty people charged as a result of “Operation Varsity Blues,” an FBI investigation that discovered a massive scam involving wealthy people paying huge sums to a man named William Singer to get their kids into top schools like Yale, Stanford, and USC.
Among Singer’s techniques: paying people to take the college entrance exams in lieu of the wealthy kids, bribing test proctors, and bribing college coaches so that the privileged applicants could claim to be athletic recruits, thus increasing their chance of acceptance into their school of choice.
A number of rich folks are facing jail time for their involvement, including Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, and Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli. Government officials allege that Aunt Becky and the Target clothes guy spent $500,000 on Singer’s services to get their daughters into USC.
Loughlin and Giannulli even allegedly conspired with Singer to falsely make their daughters appear to be recruits for the USC crew team, even though they’d never competitively rowed a boat.
FBI agents attempted to arrest Loughlin at her California home on March 12th, 2019, but she was filming in Vancouver. They nabbed Giannulli instead, and Loughlin turned herself in the following day.
