Remember Full House?
Who doesn’t remember Aunt Becky played by Lori Loughlin?
In one episode on the popular show, Aunt Becky and Uncle Jesse were involved in an admissions scandal at pre-school. As is so often the case, art is imitating life right now:
Loughlin is accused of bribing USC officials and coaches with $500K to get her two daughters into USC. She and her husband are accused of saying their girls both rowed crew to get them in as recruits for the USC rowing team.
TMZ is reporting that Lori Loughlin’s daughter was in the middle of Spring Break on a mega-yacht owned by the USC Board of Trustees Chairman when news broke of the college bribery scandal.
Rick Caruso confirmed that Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade had been with his daughter, Gianna, on the billionaire’s yacht in the Bahamas when the college scandal splashed across news around the world.
Caruso told TMZ:
‘My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government’s announcement yesterday. Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.’
A video of Olivia Jade saying “she doesn’t really care about school” is going viral:
