Hallmark drops Lori Loughlin, Sephora ends daughter’s makeup line in wake of college bribery scandal

The college admissions bribery scandal that has led to the arrests of dozens is taking its toll on the careers of one the celebrity families caught up in the federal criminal proceeding.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that the Hallmark Channel will no longer be working with actress Lori Loughlin, who has appeared in many of its films.

Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are free on $1 million bail each, after allegedly paying a college admissions consultant to gain their two daughters admission to USC by falsely claiming they were athletes involved in competitive rowing.

Hallmark announced Thursday that it will no longer work with Loughlin, who is a regular on the channel’s “When Calls the Heart” series and has starred in its Christmas movies. The actress is known for her role as Aunt Becky on the ’90s sitcom “Full House.”

“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” Hallmark said in a statement. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin, including ‘Garage Sale Mysteries,’ an independent third party production.”

Meanwhile, Loughlin and Giannulli’s daughter Olivia Giannulli, who goes by the name Olivia Jade on her popular YouTube and Instagram accounts, has been dropped by makeup company Sephora, which had created a line bearing the USC freshman’s name.

“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” the company said in a statement.
