Hallmark Channel cuts ties with Lori Loughlin amid college admissions scandal

Hallmark Channel cuts ties with Lori Loughlin amid college admissions scandal

Actress Lori Loughlin may be free on bail following her arrest over her role in the ongoing "Operation Varsity Blues" college admissions scandal, but that doesn't mean her troubles were over. "We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin".

Even though Loughlin has not submitted a plea to the charges yet, Crown Media and its affiliate networks have cut ties with the actress, halting production and development of any new projects with Loughlin, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hallmark Cards said it's cutting ties with actor Lori Loughlin after she was implicated in the US college admissions scam, and production has halted on projects she was working on in Vancouver.

Crown Media has severed ties with Lori Loughlin in the wake of her alleged involvement in a nationwide college admissions scam, meaning the Full House alum will no longer star on the Hallmark period drama When Calls the Heart or the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries film series Garage Sale Mysteries. Loughlin has also made regular appearances in the channel's show Garage Sale Mysteries, as well as in a series of Christmas movies.

Loughlin's career and the Hallmark Channel were deeply intertwined.

While Hallmark has taken a wait-and-see attitude on Loughlin, there's more at issue than whether her appeal survives.

As part of her bond arrangement, Loughlin is being permitted to travel within the continental U.S.as well as British Columbia, where she is now filming.

Federal authorities allege that Giannulli, Loughlin and other wealthy individuals paid a combined $25 million to bribe college coaches and administrators to doctor test results and falsify athletic records for their children.

The actress' travel was restricted to the United States and Canada, as she had been filming Garage Sale Mysteries in Vancouver.

Then came Tuesday's bombshell government allegation that Loughlin and her husband were among more than 30 parents who paid a consultant to ensure their offspring's place in college with bribes and falsified exams.

Her parents are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Their daughter, YouTube star Olivia Jade, attends USC. Loughlin was arrested in California in Wednesday and appeared in court.

Olivia Jade Giannulli has been a student at the University of Southern California as of the fall of 2018.
