Full House episode ‘eerily similar’ to real life scandal for Lori Loughlin

Lori Loughlin in Full House

Lori Loughlin in Full House

Loughlin was released from custody on $1 million bail, with a judge ruling that she could travel for work as long as she informs the court where she's going and how long she'll be away.

Seth Meyers on Late Night added more, saying this scandal is "the second worst thing Lori Loughlin has" done, in reference to Fuller House.

Kyle Richards was not expecting to hear her friend Lori Loughlin's name among those who were indicted as part of an alleged college admissions cheating scam.

Social media users have been posting Aunt Becky memes and jokes on Twitter since news of an indictment brought against her and her husband came out.

Becky rejects Jesse's attempts to "lie for" their kids, telling him, " know you want what's best for them, but you know what? The Jan. 26, 1993 episode, called "Be True to Your Pre-School", featured Loughlin's character, Becky Katsopolis, opposing such deception.

Loughlin, who along with her real-life husband are accused of trying to smooth the path to college for their two daughters, had enjoyed a rather clean-cut image in Hollywood up to this point.

"I'm their father", Uncle Jesse decides. It's unknown, of course, if Loughlin will end up serving any time behind bars for her alleged involvement in Operation Varsity Blues.

This was not the only time "Full House" addressed cheating and school admission.

First an awkward interview with William H. Macy resurfaced after his wife, actress Felicity Huffman, was indicted in a major college-admissions scandal.

Many fans pointed out the irony that Aunt Becky tried to stop Uncle Jesse's scam on the show, while in real life, both Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were allegedly complicit.

According to the complaint against Loughlin agreed to pay $500,000 to have her daughters Olivia 29 years old and Isabella 20 years old to be labeled as a USC crew team recruits despite not participating in the sport. The plan relied upon the daughter taking the test at a specific center with a proctor who was in on the scheme.
