According to TMZ, the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed up at Loughlin's house on Tuesday to take her in, but she was not home.

"It's the worst thing Felicity Huffman's ever done and the second worst thing Lori Loughlin has", he said, alluding to "Fuller House".

"Fuller House" star Lori Loughlin was among almost 50 charged in a nationwide college admissions scam on Tuesday, and it appears life really does imitate art. In the episode, Aunt Becky is obsessed with getting her twins Alex and Nicky into a good preschool.

Becky rejects Jesse's attempts to "lie for" their kids, telling him, " know you want what's best for them, but you know what?

During Season 6 in 1993, an episode titled "Be True to Your Pre-School" found Uncle Jesse - played by John Stamos - desperate to impress the school's administrators after a play date with another set of parents.

"I'm their father", Uncle Jesse decides. However, Loughlin was on location in Canada at the time. She also appeared in the recent spin-off series "Fuller House".

In response to the book, a representative for Kushner said "It seems [Ward] has written a book of fiction rather than any serious attempt to get the facts".

This was not the only time "Full House" addressed cheating and school admission.

According to the complaint against Loughlin agreed to pay $500,000 to have her daughters Olivia 29 years old and Isabella 20 years old to be labeled as a USC crew team recruits despite not participating in the sport.

Many fans pointed out the irony that Aunt Becky tried to stop Uncle Jesse's scam on the show, while in real life, both Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were allegedly complicit.

"Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states and charged in documents unsealed on March 12, 2019, in federal court in Boston", the release said.

Loughlin and fellow actor Felicity Huffman, of Desperate Housewives fame, are among 50 people charged in an alleged criminal enterprise to get their children into top universities in the US.
