Lori Loughlin Indictment.

When Calls the Heart will go on.
Hallmark cut ties with Lori Loughlin last week in the wake of her indictment in the massive college admissions scandal.
The channel axed long-running Garage Sale Mysteries movies and pulled a new episode of When Calls the Heart but assured “Hearties” the series would continue.
When Calls the Heart wrapped production on season 6 last Fall in Vancouver and is expected to return to film season 7 without Lori Loughlin sometime in the future.
When Calls the Heart will continue on, the channel said on Instagram.
But Garage Sale Mysteries is not so lucky.
A sad day indeed, but I thank all the fans for watching, sleuthing, and kind messages. You are absolutely the best! I look forward to bringing you other new shows and mysteries. Thank you #LoriLoughlin for the opportunity to write for you #garagesalemysteries pic.twitter.com/mOdP72TtMI

Leaving a Vancouver crew without work.
Hallmark canceled #LoriLoughlin’s show; ironic that 100s of hard-working film crew just lost their jobs through no fault of their own. People whose children most certainly will never attend Ivy League schools & who’ll never have an extra $500K. Working class pays the price again.

Loughlin and her husband’s alleged $500,000 bribe was to get their daughters Isabella and Olivia Jade Giannulli into the University of Southern California, according to a New York Times cover story.
Loughlin and her husband allegedly paid the $500,000 in “exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the U.S.C. crew team” even though neither of them rowed. The daughters posed for photos on rowing machines to sell the scam.
Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend mocked the scam in a tweet.

When the scandal broke, Olivia Jane was enjoying Spring Break in the Bahamas on a $100 million yacht owned by billionaire Rick Caruso, the chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees and the father of her new college friend “Gigi”.
Somewhere there’s a Lifetime movie writing itself.
