In this April 10, 2016 file photo, actress Lori Loughlin arrives at the TV Land Icon Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. Felicity Huffman and Loughlin have worked steadily as respected actresses and remained recognizable if not-quite-A-list names for decades. Neither has ever had a whiff of criminality or scandal tied to their name until both were charged with fraud and conspiracy Tuesday, March 12, 2019, along with dozens of others in a scheme that, according to federal prosecutors, saw wealthy parents pay bribes to get their children into some of the nation’s top colleges.

SALT LAKE CITY — Lori Loughlin can’t talk right now.

  • She said as much in a recent (albeit brief and totally random) interview with TMZ, which shared a video of Loughlin reportedly leaving a yoga studio over the weekend. Paparazzi snatched a video of Loughlin, who said she couldn’t talk about her ongoing legal issues, CNN reports.
  • "You can follow me around all day if you want, but I just can't comment right now," Loughlin said in a video posted on TMZ. "But thank you for your time."
  • She was kind to the cameraman who followed her, too. "You have a beautiful day," she said. "Thank you so much. Thanks, honey."

Context: Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are among a group of parents facing criminal charges in connection to a college admissions scandal, The Associated Press reports.

Flashback: Hallmark dropped Loughlin from her series “When Calls the Heart” and “Garage Sale Mystery.” Netflix’s “Fuller House” also revealed she would no longer be on the show.

  • Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade, a notable YouTube star, has lost sponsorships and partnerships as a result of the scandal, too, which I wrote about for the Deseret News.
