Lori Loughlin's sudden run in with the law shocked "Full House" fans. Aunt Becky was a Goodie Two-Shoes, especially compared to her bad boy husband, Uncle Jesse. Yet, in real life, Loughlin was just indicted in a college admission cheating scandal. Along with dozens of other individuals, the actress was found to have bribed teachers and coaches in order to advance her children's education. Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, reportedly "agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team - despite the fact that they did not participate in the crew - thereby facilitating their admission to USC."
She appeared in court Wednesday before being released on a $1 million bail.
In light of her now exposed crime, "Full House" fans are recalling a pretty relevant episode from 1993. In "Be True to Your Preschool," Aunt Becky and Uncle Jesse are dismayed when their twin boys are rejected from the prestigious San Francisco preschool Bouton Hall. So, Jesse tries to take matters into his own hands and embellishes some information on their application form. On one line he even writes that the twins are "tri-lingual." It was all in his attempt to make them look like "two little geniuses," he admits. In the end, Becky is the one who talks Jesse out of the fabrications and insists they tell the school the truth.
Another actress, Felicity Huffman, was caught in the college cheating scandal, reportedly giving out $15,000 to propel her daughter past the entrance exams. Huffman was released Wednesday on $250,000 bail.
