Earlier this week, Lori Loughlin, along with fellow actress Felicity Huffman and dozens of other individuals, was charged in a college admissions bribery scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly paid millions to college officials and coaches to ensure their children were accepted into some of the nation’s most illustrious colleges. Loughlin’s public persona has already been tainted, and as of Thursday, her ties to major networks are in jeopardy starting with the Hallmark Channel.
In a statement released to CNN, Hallmark officially announced that it would be cutting ties with the actress, who stars in the network’s series When the Heart Calls.
“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” the company said. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production.”
Not only has Hallmark ended their relationship with the actress, but Netflix is reportedly cutting ties with Loughlin as well. Loughlin acted as a guest star on Fuller House, Netflix’s adaption of the classic 80s sitcom Full House, which the actress starred in as the beloved Aunt Becky. However, TMZ reports that Aunt Becky won’t be making a return to Fuller House upcoming fifth season.
“Fuller House is not currently in production,” a source close to the situation told the outlet. “Lori is a guest star and was during the previous 4 seasons and there are currently no plans for her to return to the 5th season.”
