With all eyes on a certain Full House alum -- and questions about whether she'll spend time behind bars -- life for Lori Loughlin in the near future seems uncertain. News of her alleged involvement in a college admissions scam has people upset and quite disappointed as it's unexpected given her squeaky-clean image. Most parents would do just about anything to guarantee their children have a good shot at living a good life, and for Lori, she reportedly felt her "heart was in the right place" allegedly committing a crime to get her daughters into college.

  • Lori Loughlin is in some pretty serious trouble amid reports she paid a hefty bribe to get her children into college.

    Multiple outlets report Lori and her husband, Mossimo founder Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters -- Isabella and Olivia Jade, now 20 and 19 -- into the University of Southern California. Not only did this Hollywood couple allegedly pay Rick Singer to make it look like their daughters were a part of the crew team (spoiler alert: they weren't), but also got someone to handle Olivia's college application as she was reportedly "confused by the application process."

    The aftermath of Lori's alleged involvement in this college admissions scandal (she and Mossimo are two of 33 parents who collectively dished out an estimated $25 million to get their kids into school) has been incredibly real. Not only was there an outcry from Hallmark fans to can her, but Fuller House and Hallmark cut ties with her.

  • "Lori is a really great mom who is completely into her kids and family life," a source tells Us Weekly.

    "She lives and breathes for her husband and children ... Her intentions were pure," the unnamed insider continues in an exclusive about Lori's reported involvement in the scandal.

    "In [Lori's] mind, the end result made everything she had to do worth it. And she really didn’t even see it as being a huge deal."

  • Welp, folks caught wind of Lori's reported sentiments and have a few of their own.

    Let's just say the reaction has been anything but supportive considering Lori was arrested on a felony charge "of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud."

    So there's that.
  • What else is there to say?

    Regardless of Lori's intentions, she and many others (allegedly) committed a crime that carries a felony charge or two. As much as we all want to do what's best for our kids, should breaking the law be on the list?
