Actress Lori Loughlin and her daughter Olivia Jade are feeling the professional fallout from their involvement in the massive college admission scam dubbed Operations Varsity Blues.
On Thursday, March 14, Loughlin’s youngest daughter Olivia Jade lost one of her biggest collaborations when Sephora announced they were cutting ties. “After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” the company said in a statement.
TMZ also reports that hair care brand Tresemme has also announced they are no longer working with her, stating, “We take this very seriously and are no longer working with Olivia.” In addition, Olivia’s entire page with the clothing brand Princess Polly is no longer active but the company has not made a statement.
Meanwhile, news also broke yesterday that Hallmark had cut ties with Lori Loughlin, who along with her husband Massimo Giannulli were charged in the scandal after they allegedly paid $500,000 so that their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose would be classified as recruits for USC’s rowing team despite the fact they don’t row.
We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” reads the statement from Crown Media, which owns Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production.”
The news came one day after the 54-year-old turned herself in and appeared in front of a judge and Loughlin was slated to appear in at least one Hallmark Christmas movie in 2019.
TMZ also added that a source from Fuller House confirmed the actress would not be returning for the Netflix series’ fifth and final season. “Fuller House is not currently in production. Lori is a guest star and was during the previous 4 seasons and there are currently no plans for her to return to the 5th season,” the source said.
