Hallmark Cuts Ties With Lori Loughlin Amid College Cheating Scandal

Hallmark Cuts Ties With Lori Loughlin Amid College Cheating Scandal

Actress and model Olivia Munn joined in on the attack online, taking aim at Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, who has been subjected to an onslaught of criticism in recent days.

Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli accused of paying a U.S. $500,000 bribe to have their two daughters - the youngest being YouTube star and social media influencer Olivia Jade Giannulli- labelled as rowers to get into the University of Southern California.

The six-color Olivia Jade x Sephora Collection Bronze & Illuminate Palette, which costs $28, is not available on Sephora's website any longer, according to NBC. As her following grew, fashion and cosmetics brands linked with the social media star so they could promote their products.

Global BC has reached out to representatives of unions for local TV and film workers for comment.

In a YouTube video published in August 2018, the social media influencer told her almost 2 million subscribers that she wanted to attend college for the full experience of "game days" and "partying".

He said production on the latest project in that franchise has been halted as a result of an indictment that claims Loughlin paid $500,000 to have her daughters designated as rowing recruits at the University of Southern California - despite the fact that they aren't rowers. Loughlin posted a $1 million dollar bond, putting up the family home in Bel Air as collateral.

Prosecutors revealed on Tuesday that they planned to indicted more than 40 people in the "largest college admissions scam ever", with Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, on their list.


Loughlin's lawyer Perry Visconti did not immediately reply to an email requesting comment. William "Rick" Singer, the ringleader of the scam and owner of a college counseling service, pleaded guilty in court yesterday on a number of charges.

Lori Loughlin's daughters will not return to the University of Southern California, or USC, because they reportedly can not deal with the bullying.

Going without trousers again, the influencer showed off her legs in a tan turtleneck sweater with a chainlink belt during a stroll in L.A. last December. "Having a straighter smile definitely makes me feel more confident", she wrote on this paid-for post.

Several months later, in March 2017, USC mailed the oldest daughter her formal acceptance letter, the complaint states.

Neither Olivia Jade or any of the other students who may have benefited from the alleged scheme have been charged in the federal case.

Following news of the scandal, a video of Olivia, who has almost two million Youtube subscribers, discussing how she only had interest in going to college to attend parties began circulating the web. Others charged include nine coaches at elite schools; two SAT/ACT administrators; an exam proctor; a college administrator; and a CEO who admitted he wanted to help the wealthiest families get their kids into elite colleges.
