A 2014 interview with “Fuller House” star Lori Loughlin is now being seen in a new light amid allegations that she bribed her children’s way into the University of Southern California.

The 54-year-old was arrested last week as part of “Operation Varsity Blues,” a large-scale investigation that uncovered a $25 million college admissions scheme, Dearly reported.

Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid up to $500,000 in order to have their daughters accepted to USC as crew recruits, despite having no experience.

Their arrest led to major fallout for the actress and her children — something the mom never wanted to happen.

In a resurfaced interview, Loughlin told Christian Broadcasting Network she hoped her choices wouldn’t negatively affect her kids, according to Fox News.

Loughlin explained that’s why she was careful with choosing roles:

“For me personally, I was always very thoughtful about projects that I chose for myself. I would say to myself, ‘Can my father watch this?’ If my father couldn’t watch it, I didn’t do it.”

She added:

“And then when I had children I always thought, ‘I don’t want to do anything that one day might rear its ugly head and my children have to pay the price for that.’”

Loughlin’s daughter, 19-year-old Olivia Jade Giannulli, had a large following on social media and was attending USC when the scandal broke.

News of her involvement with the admissions scheme angered fans and caused her to lose endorsement deals with big name brands like Sephora and TRESemmé.


It’s unclear if Loughlin’s other daughter, Isabella Rose Giannulli, was enrolled at USC.

Loughlin has been freed on a $1 million bond, but she’s also faced major fallout from the scandal.

The actress was dropped by Hallmark Channel, where she was a regular. She’s also been cut from Netflix’s “Full House” reboot, “Fuller House.”

According to People, Loughlin and her family are currently “laying low” at their Los Angeles mansion until her and her husband’s court dates next week.

    I want them to bring back Garage Sales Mystery. Use a different actress to play her part. Why should the other people on the show for this ?

      Agreed. I kept thinking of all the people who are out of work because of them. I always loved her. But it’s time to hire a replacement.

    I feel no sympathy for this woman and her children who only were registered in a college to get a degree. There’s no mention of specific majors of study but someone who utilized social media as a place to earn money was not attending college to get high grades and a designated role in life. Those majors at USC are not the types of majors one gets by just showing up for class. (go check). So this payment to get the children into college for their degrees involved more than gaining their acceptance into the school but also involves paying for someone to do their school work also. As for her specific suffering–she played the game and lost.

    I am so disappointed in Lori. I have watched her on TV ever since she started. I would have Never thought she would do something like this. I can’t imagine how her co-stars feel.? But there is forgiveness in our Lord, there’s always hope.

    I agree with Julia Roberts. It is sad they did not have the confidence, or believe in their children’s abilities to do well for themselves. Our job as parents is to ready our children for the real world.

    I know, all if this is so bad. I am a little surprised that Hollywood is making such a big deal about it though. The only think I can think is that because they tend to lean to the Conservative side …?
    There is WAY worse things Hollywood is seen doing and get celebrated.

    Everyone makes mistakes (even conscious ones). Unfortunately, our actions reap consequences. “Your sin will find you out”. In this case because of their celebrity status, the repercussions are enormous. I am sure this will be hard to recover and go back “to the way things were.” I am praying for this family,,,,,that they learn from this mistake and that as a family they will seek better values. …… Better yet seek God’s forgiveness and a relationship with their Creator and Savior. There is no sin bigger than God’s love and redemption. This family can be restored. Praying for you and your family Lori. God will help you,,,He is just waiting for you to ask.

    She made a mistake & she will pay a price for it! She does not deserve to lose her jobs because of it! It isn’t murder or a sex scandal it is a not trusting her children to get into college on their own merits. She has disappointed herself & them! Let her go on using the gift God has given her! I will still watch her if a studio is smart enough to hire her!
