The Hallmark Channel has cut ties with one of their biggest stars, Lori Loughlin, in the midst of her arrest in a college admissions scam.
The family-friendly network put out a statement explaining their decision. “We are saddened by the recent allegations surrounding the college admissions process,” said Hallmark Cards Inc., parent company of the Crown Media Family Networks group that includes the Hallmark Channel. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions with the actress for Crown Media channels."
Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were charged on Tuesday for paying bribes to get their daughters admitted into college.
Loughlin has become known as one of the Hallmark Channel's “Christmas queens” who star in many of their holiday movies. She's also starred in the ongoing Garage Sale Mysteries movies and the series When Calls the Heart.
UPDATE: No official statement has been put out by Netflix or Fuller House yet, but a production source told TMZ, "Fuller House is not currently in production. 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."
