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

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

"Well, it looks like Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are heading back to TV", Meyers said, as an above-shoulder graphic featured the Desperate Housewives and Full House stars "newly cast" in Netflix's Orange Is the New Black.

On Tuesday, a judge ruled Giannulli will be released on a $1 million dollar bond. Jesse lies about the twins' academic abilities to try to get them in. It's unknown, of course, if Loughlin will end up serving any time behind bars for her alleged involvement in Operation Varsity Blues. As the "Operation Varsity Blues" investigation showed, cheating on the SAT is a real problem, and "Full House" brought that scenario to the small screen in a 1994 episode called "The Test".

And then there was that one episode of Full House that may have been a premonition of sorts.

"Full House" fans reacted to the news by drawing parallels to the show.

Jesse "embellishes" both the twins' and his own credentials, a scam that's undone when Becky admits the scheme to the preschool's admissions officer.

"Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states and charged in documents unsealed on March 12, 2019, in federal court in Boston", the release stated.

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.

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are reportedly among the high-profile names charged in an alleged college admissions bribery scam against the coaches at schools including Wake Forest University, Georgetown and the University of Southern California.

CBS News legal analyst Rikki Klieman told "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday that the parents involved could be facing "serious time" in prison if convicted - not the sitcom-style happy ending Loughlin is used to.
