During Monday’s episode of “The Real,” co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley shared her thoughts regarding Lori Loughlin’s involvement in the college admissions scandal.

As Dearly reported, law officials charged Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud last month, with an additional charge of money laundering that was added later.

The couple is accused of allegedly paying $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California.

Co-host Loni Love described Mowry-Housley as “hot,” during the show’s “Girl Chat” segment.

Mowry-Housley said:

“I do feel that–– moms, parents––we go the extra mile for our children, but that’s not what this is. That’s not what that was.”

The “Sister, Sister ” actress went on to say that she feels parents have a duty to be a good role model for their children.

She said:

“To me I think it’s really important to be the best possible example you can be for your children.The example that she set here was that you could buy your way into success, while disrespecting a person who worked their a** off to get there.”

Further, Mowry-Housley also took the opportunity to shut down a critic, who questioned her success at Pepperdine University.

The actress said:

“Ma’am, I’m not going to call you out and embarrass you but I worked my a** off. I graduated with honors from Bermingham High. Okay, and then when I didn’t get the SAT score that I would like because Im type A and I’m an overachiever…I then used my resources to actually get a tutor, so I can study my a** off to get into the college of choice.”

Lastly, Mowry-Housley finished by saying that she’s going to teach her children an important lesson.

She said:

“I am going to teach my children… if they want something you have to work hard for it. You have to earn it because that’s only going to help your character in life. Done.”

Mowry-Housley and husband Adam Housley share two children, Aden and Ariah.
