The Hallmark Channel has announced it's no longer working with Lori Loughlin in light of her arrest in the sprawling US college admissions cheating case.

Lori Loughlin has always been a staple on the Hallmark Channel and its sister channel, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, with the show What Calls the Heart and the Garage Sale Mysteries movies for years.

"We are saddened by the recent allegations surrounding the college admissions process", Hallmark Cards Inc., parent company of the Crown Media Family Networks group that includes the Hallmark Channel, said in a statement.

Additionally, on Thursday, Hallmark announced it was cutting ties with the 54-year-old actress.

Loughlin was busted for allegedly bribing officials to get her daughter accepted into the University of Southern California.

Olivia, a well known YouTuber, and the makeup retailer worked together on the Olivia Jade x Sephora palette, released in December 2018. "I will not buy a single product again until she is gone", wrote one Twitter follower. Olivia has 1.9 fans that follow her YouTube channel, but has had to disable the comments sections after she was viciously bullied after her parents' arrests.

Court documents allege that her parents - Full House actress Lori Loughlin and designer Mossimo Giannulli - "agreed to pay bribes totalling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team - despite the fact that they did not participate in crew - thereby facilitating their admission to USC".

On Wednesday, Loughlin returned to Los Angeles to surrender to federal authorities, and was released to continue her work in Vancouver after posting a $1 million bond. The scheme is also being called the "college entrance exam cheating scandal" - because the children's scores on the admissions test were usurped by the money paid.

To pull off the alleged scam, Giannulli had to send plot mastermind William "Rick" Singer a photo of Isabella on a rowing machine, court papers alleged.

"She is totally sorry for being involved in all of this college stuff and is terrified that her mom might go to prison for trying to help her get into school", a friend of Olivia's tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

And it was pointed out that Huffman's shirt wasn't quite right. HP Printers has already cut ties with the influencer amid the news, and if you try to search for her clothing line on the Princess Polly website, nothing comes up.

Both lawsuits were filed in California.

The Stanford case is notable because it is among the country's most prestigious and selective universities, admitting just 4.3 percent of its applicants a year ago. She has also said that she only went to college because her parents wanted her to.

Coaches from Yale, Stanford, Wake Forest and Georgetown universities and USC, among others, are implicated in the case.
