Lori Loughlin chose acting roles her children wouldn't 'have to pay the price for'




 

More of Lori Loughlin's words are coming back to bite her.

In a 2014 interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, the "Full House" actress, who is embroiled in the college admissions scandal, explained how she didn't want her children to have to suffer for her choices and how that impacted her choice of roles.

"For me personally, I was always very thoughtful about projects that I chose for myself. I would say to myself, 'Can my father watch this?' If my father couldn't watch it, I didn't do it," she said. "And then when I had children … I always thought, I don't want to do anything that one day might rear its ugly head and my children have to pay the price for that."

Loughlin, 54, who played "Aunt Becky" Katsopolis on the original "Full House" and its Netflix reboot "Fuller House," attributed the original series' success, in part, to its principles.

"The morals are right, there's a message to - in every episode, you know, how to be a good person, how to be a better person, right from wrong," she told CBN. "It's a good message."

Loughlin also broached the importance of school when describing how she got into acting: "Well, I started out modeling. And my father said two things: You have to keep your grades up at school. And if I see any change in your attitude, like I'm pulling you from this," she said. "And I thank them for that."

Loughlin and her husband of nearly 22 years, designer Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly agreed to pay $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, admission to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, although neither was an athlete.

Following the charges, Crown Media, the parent company of the Hallmark Channel, announced it was cutting ties with the actress, who had long been a staple on its networks and starred on its series "When Calls the Heart."

Loughlin played Abigail Stanton the drama, which captured a series-best 2.5 million viewers during February's Season 6 premiere, finishing second to "The Walking Dead" among Sunday night cable dramas.

Netflix's "Fuller House" was recently renewed for a fifth and final season. The streaming service declined to comment on Loughlin's status on the series but did note that production for the final season has not begun.

As for her daughters, USC's Gary Polakovic, of the Office of University Communications, said in a statement to USA TODAY that the school plans to "conduct a case-by-case review for current students and graduates that may be connected to the scheme alleged by the government. We will make informed, appropriate decisions once those reviews have been completed. Some of these individuals may have been minors at the time of their application process."

Loughlin and Giannulli are slated for a federal court appearance in Boston on April 3, along with fellow actress Felicity Huffman.
