Lori Loughlin's Daughters Are Reportedly Withdrawing From USC After the Cheating Scandal

Production on the show will reportedly continue without her, although other Hallmark series involving Loughlin have been shelved.

Loughlin, 54, and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, 55, were both charged in the nationwide college bribery scandal dubbed "Varsity Blues" by investigators.

Giannulli, who goes by Olivia Jade, is a social media influencer with more than 1.4 million followers on Instagram and 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube.

Loughlin turned herself into the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday after being named among 50 people indicted in a nationwide scheme to get children of wealthy parents into colleges of their choice through fake athletic credentials or phony SAT scores.

Lori Loughlin's daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, are officially dropping out of USC. However, a source close to the show has shared with The Hollywood Reporter that there are no plans to bring Loughlin back for next season.

The vlog went unnoticed at the time, though one she posted a few months later - in which she bragged that she only wanted to go to college to party - led to backlash, forcing her to apologize. Both girls fear that if they return to school, they'd get "viciously bullied", so they plan to "lay low" and forgo attending any college for now.

Olivia in particular "is a mess, despondent, and feeling like it's the end of the world", sources told TMZ.

The streaming service and Warner Brother Television has not commented on the news that Aunt Becky will not return to the fifth and final season of Fuller House. They have never been obsessed with school and didn't seem to care that much.

Their decision is said to have been made with the full support of their parents.

The Hallmark Channel was swift in firing Loughlin in the wake of the scandal, explaining on Twitter: "We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations". She previously collaborated with the brand on the Olivia Jade x Sephora Collection Bronze & Illuminate Palette.

"I'm, like, excited to go.do the school prank", she said in the video. Rachel doesn't bear any ill will, though she says that things definitely didn't go as planned. The university further noted it would "deny admission to applicants in the current admissions cycle who are connected to the alleged scheme" and that it has "initiated a case-by-case review of current students and graduates who may be connected to the alleged scheme".
