    AS for the When Calls The Heart series, they'll somehow write her out of the script and replace her space with a new character. They had to do that last year when the male star of the show didn't renew his contract and he went back to Australia. They can't show the program this week because it's already done and she's in the show. That probably means they'll have to scrap the rest of this season. :(

    The Garge Sale Mysteries she was the main female character so they'll probably just have to film a new series. Well, to be honest, their shows are pretty repetitious, kwim? So they may already have something "in the can," LOL.

    I was just thinking how this will affect those who were working with Lori.
    Not entirely fair.

    People are getting ridiculous. LOL.
    Now THAT is a frivilous lawsuit.
    As for the other, IF the people or their kids who are involved in the suit are in college presently or have already gone to college, they should just forgetaboutit.
    They're lucky they even got into college. They should also be happy with the school they attended.
    Believe me, people are NOT going to place the weight of those schools up to where it once was.

    A degree is what you make of it after you're out of college.

    Geesh,
    JMHO

    It seems that Lori and her daughter are getting the brunt of the publicity over this. It's never ending

    EXCLUSIVE: 'We have to film it again -with Olivia as the winner.' Lori Loughlin's daughter is caught in ANOTHER cheating scandal after claims a TV game show was rigged in her favor and the winning teen stripped of $5K prize
    • Lifestyle vlogger Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19, daughter of Lori Loughlin, took on fellow influencer Marissa Rachel and singer Rydel Lynch in a 2016 episode of Tap That Awesome App
    • Marissa Rachel was declared the winner in front of a live audience
    • But studio execs mysteriously stepped in and ordered producers to re-shoot
    • When the trivia contest resumed Rydel and a 'visibly upset' Marissa were allegedly under orders not to buzz in with the correct answers,
    • Giannulli took home first prize, a $5,000 donation to a charity of her choice
    • When executives re-shot the final questions they asked Rachel to repeat an incorrect answer while cutting out the questions she answered correctly
    • 'What happened just didn’t seem right to me,’ Rachel told DailyMail.com
    • The puzzling episode emerged just days after Jade's parents, Full House star Loughlin and the designer Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $500,000 to get her and her sister Isabella into USC


    • https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...-cheating-scandal-alleged-rigged-contest.html



    Lori Loughlin used to be 'a competitive parent who liked to show off' but now she has 'lost a lot of friends' after crushing college scandal



      • 'They loved to talk about how amazing their daughters are,' a source has said
      • It was added, 'They are very competitive parents and they like to show off'
      • And now that they have been shamed, they are losing pals
      • The couple have been photographed over the years with Brooke Shields, Tom Hanks, John Travolta, Lisa Rinna and Eva Longoria
      • But it is not known how close they are with other celebrities

    College co-fled: Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade skipped her first week of classes at USC and flew to Fiji while gloating about her island vacation



      • Olivia Giannulli, 19, flew to Fiji for a press trip with other social media influencers instead of attending her first week of college
      • She made no secret of the trip, posting photos daily to her Instagram account and later uploading a YouTube video from the trip
      • Olivia moved in August 16 and then flew to Fiji until August 25, while classes began at the school on August 20
      • She gained admittance to the University of Southern California after her parents allegedly claimed she was a rower and paid a $250,000 bribe
      • The teenager, whose earnings appear to have been in the high six-figure range last year, has been dropped by partners Sephora and TRESemmé
      • She also decided to put a halt on her college education and has dropped out of USC for the time being while her parents face jail time

    Felicity Huffman holds tight to William H Macy while couple returns to court ahead of trial with actress facing five years in prison for college cheating scandal
    • Felicity Huffman and her husband William H Macy held hands as they walked into the federal courthouse in Los Angeles on Friday
    • The couple were not accompanied by their lawyer and appeared to be there to review Huffman's bail conditions or for a closed 10am hearing
    • Macy has yet to be indicted in the case dubbed Operation Varsity Blues, but court documents allege he was aware of his wife's plot
    • Huffman had allegedly facilitated where and when her older daughter would be taking an SAT that would then be falsified
    • Huffman also agreed to and sent a $15,000 wire payment to a charity to pay off the proctor after this, according to court documents
    • Macy was involved in the younger daughter's test who did not need the help in the end, making it hard to substantiate a mail fraud charge

    William H Macy and Felicity Huffman were seen heading back to federal court on Friday, three days after the pair found themselves embroiled in Operation Varsity Blues.

    The Oscar-nominated couple were not accompanied by their attorney as they headed into the courthouse, three days after Huffman was indicted on a single charge of mail fraud in Operation Varsity Blues.

    It seemed that the two were likely checking in on the conditions of Huffman's bond, with the court not showing any appearance for either, although there was a 10am hearing that was closed to the public.

    Macy was not indicted in the college admission scheme, but he could still find himself in hot water with prosecutors since he was aware of the plan according to phone conversations detailed in the complaint.

    A civil action: Macy has yet to be indicted in the case dubbed Operation Varsity Blues, but court
    documents allege he was aware of his wife's plot


    Federal documents show that while Huffman worked alone to iron out the details when the couple's first daughter had her SAT changed by a proctor to improve her score, Macy was aware of the situation and the payment came from the couple's joint account.

    He in turn took a more active role in organizing the younger daughter's fradulent SAT, agreeing to the money and a set place and time much like his wife had done one year prior with their other child.

    In that case however, the couple's daughter achieved the results she had hoped for on her own and the mastermind behind the operation was informed that she would not be needing to submit a fraudulent score.

    This does not mean Macy will not be charged down the line in the case.

    That would explain why Macy was not identified by name in court documents filed Tuesday and instead referred to as Huffman's spouse.

    Huffman paid a $15,000 'charitable contribution 'to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter,' states the complaint.

    'Huffman later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so,' according to the documents.

    The charging documents state that Huffman had the site where he daughter took the SATs moved from her own high school to a test center West Hollywood.

    Loughlin lost everything. I hope she thought it was worth it.

    Worse yet, she lost her daughters' everything.
    Stunning retribution for a stunningly ignorant stunt.

    No mercy, Aunt Becky. No mercy.
