Crown Media Family Networks, the company that owns the Hallmark cable channel, stopped working with its "Garage Sale Mysteries" star, Lori Loughlin, after she was charged in a college admissions scandal, it said on Thursday.
Loughlin is a big presence for Hallmark and its Crown Media Family Networks channels that include the flagship Hallmark Channel.
Some are predicting that Hallmark would sever ties with Loughlin because of the controversy.
While Hallmark has taken a wait-and-see attitude on Loughlin, there's more at issue than whether her appeal survives.
Huffman and Giannulli were arrested that same day, while Loughlin appeared in a Los Angeles court on Wednesday, March 13.
The 54-year-old actress has starred in 15 Garage Sale Mysteries films so far, with another installment listed as "filming" on IMDb and three more in pre-production.
When reached by Fox News, a rep for Loughlin said that they "have no information to share". She will have to surrender her passport in November, when her projects are expected to wrap. While the elite school bribery scheme indicted Loughlin is fired from the show, the Michael Landon Jr. developed series based on Janette Oake's books is absolutely not cancelled, I hear. According to multiple reports, the actress landed at LAX on Tuesday during her husband's court hearing.
Loughlin was in Vancouver Tuesday filming the 16th film in the Garage Sale Mysteries series when Federal Bureau of Investigation agents showed up at her Los Angeles home to charge her and her husband, clothing designer Mossimo Giannulli, with fraud.
He said production on the latest project in that franchise has been halted as a result of an indictment that claims Loughlin paid $500,000 to have her daughters designated as rowing recruits at the University of Southern California - despite the fact that they aren't rowers. The couple faces charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. This, though neither child had participated in the sport.
Loughlin has reportedly been arrested for her alleged involvement in a scam that helped her daughters get into USC. She appeared in Los Angeles federal court Tuesday looking visibly exhausted, before posting $250,000 bail and surrendering her passport.
