College cheating scam: Hallmark drops accused actress Lori Loughlin

Actress Lori Loughlin and daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli attend Women's Cancer Research Fund's An Unforgettable Evening Benefit Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel

Olivia is also facing some repercussions, with Sephora ending its partnership with her. Both Giannulli daughters have withdrawn from USC.

Loughlin, 54, and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, 55, were both charged in the nationwide college bribery scandal dubbed "Varsity Blues" by investigators.

According to court documents, Olivia Jade posed with a photo of a rowing machine as part of her college application materials, despite her apparent lack of interest in the sport.

Loughlin had been filming two Hallmark Channel projects in Metro Vancouver when the charges came to light this week alleging she was among dozens of parents who paid a consultant to get their kids into college with bribes and falsified exams.

Furthermore, Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade has also lost out a series of commercial partnerships, as Sephora, Princess Polly and Tresemme have all dropped the University of Southern California student from their rosters. Sources say Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella Rose, 20, plan to "lay low" rather than enroll in another school for the time being, due to concerns they'd be "viciously bullied".

According to a source close to production, the show is most concerned about its youngest stars.

Giannulli took criticism past year for a vlog in which she said she didn't "really care about school", and was interested in attending college only for "game days, partying".

The scandal has reportedly been particularly hard on Olivia, who, sources told the outlet, "is a mess, despondent and feeling like it's the end of the world".

Deadline reports the 54-year-old actress has been fired from the Hallmark Channel and from Netflix's upcoming fifth and final season of "Fuller House".

Olivia Jade has amassed almost 2 million followers for her YouTube beauty vlogs.

"So nearly every other adult, both cast and crew, I have reached out to [the kids] to make sure that they are okay", the insider continues.

"We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations". "[They] never expected their parents to be charged for any crime, let alone one related to them". Rachel doesn't bear any ill will, though she says that things definitely didn't go as planned.

"USC is conducting a case-by-case review for current students and graduates that may be connected to the scheme alleged by the government and will make informed decisions as those reviews are completed", the spokesperson said.
