Lori Loughlin Removed From Hallmark Series 'When Calls the Heart' Marketing Imagery

Lori Loughlin's daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, are officially dropping out of USC.

The news comes a day after Loughlin was canned by Hallmark, where she was known as the "Queen of Christmas", having appeared in 18 holiday movies on the channel.

Similar: Unconfirmed reports suggest that Loughlin will be dropped from "Fuller House" on Netflix, according to TMZ and Deadline. A writer's room is still working on the final episodes, but Loughin's Aunt Becky character will not be included.

"We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations", Crown Media, Hallmark's parent company, said in a statement sent to Variety.

Of course, Loughlin did not act alone, as her apparel company-founder husband, Mossimo Giannulli, shares the blame for the alleged crime. She was released after posting $1 million bond on Wednesday.

Authorities and the charging document allege that Huffman and Macy aligned with William Singer, a "cooperating witness" in the investigation who runs a college preparatory business and started the Key Worldwide Foundation that accepted the couple's $15,000 donation.

Both girls have reportedly made a decision to withdrawal from the school after fears that they may be "viciously bullied", TMZ reports. They now do not plan on enrolling at any other college at the time being.

After her parents were swept up in the scandal, Giannulli's social media posts on education have received intense scrutiny, including a YouTube video where she admitted to not caring about school.

The university has not commented publicly on any individual students linked to the scheme. In some cases, administrators were bribed to allow a Florida man to take admissions tests on behalf of students.

They are among dozens of other parents and college coaches accused of participating in the bribery scam in which people allegedly paid up to $6.5 million to get their kids into elite universities. They attended school because their parents made them.

The report comes as a spokesperson for USC told Entertainment Tonight that the pair are now still students at the university, saying in a statement: "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".
