She, along with over 40 other people, were indicted in a supposed college admissions cheating scandal. Neither of Loughlin's daughters participated in crew.

Loughlin and Giannulli are charged with spending $500,000 to buy their two daughters' admission to the University of Southern California, under the guise that they were recruited by the school's rowing team, in 2016 and 2018.

Of "Aunt Becky's" alleged involvement in the scandal, Colbert quipped: "I know it's shocking, but this is nothing new". Because of this, she and her husband have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

The former alleged that Loughlin "could be going from Full House to the big house" - a joke only made 1.2 million times on Twitter - while the latter said that he expected this from a Desperate Housewife, but not from Aunt Becky.

The "Be True to Your Preschool" episode aired in season 6 of the show. Jesse lies about the twins' academic abilities to try to get them in.


"In the episode, Jesse claims to be a diplomat and alleges that sons Nicky and Alex have skills including speaking multiple languages and playing musical instruments - despite their being just toddlers", according to Fox News.

"I gotta say I think something like this could really hurt Hollywood's reputation", The Late Late Show's James Corden joked, but he, too, had another Aunt Becky gag to add to the pile.

On Tuesday, March 12, actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were named as part of an investigation called Operation Varsity Blues. She is accused of paying an organization $15,000 to help her daughter cheat on her SATs, according to The Cut. She was taken into custody earlier today when she returned from Canada.

The parents were among 50 people, including Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, charged with allegedly being involved in a bribery scam that allowed wealthy students who otherwise may not have been accepted, to attend Ivy League and prestigious colleges and universities.

Huffman has two daughters with husband William H. Macy including Sofia, who is 18, and 16-year old Georgia.
