"Fuller House" star Lori Loughlin was among almost 50 charged in a nationwide college admissions scam on Tuesday, and it appears life really does imitate art. When she discovers what her husband has done, she decides to tell the school the truth.
According to TMZ, the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed up at Loughlin's house on Tuesday to take her in, but she was not home.
Finally, maybe the funniest meme to emerge has less to do with Loughlin or her Full House character, and more to do with a recent meme about rapper 6ix9ine.
In season six of the family sitcom, Aunt Becky and Uncle Jesse, played by John Stamos, worry that their twin boys won't get into a prestigious preschool. The Jan. 26, 1993 episode, called "Be True to Your Pre-School", featured Loughlin's character, Becky Katsopolis, opposing such deception.
"I mean, I expected this from a desperate housewife, but you?" the host added, referencing Huffman, who was on the series "Desperate Housewives". In real life, Loughlin is facing conspiracy charges and possible prison time if convicted.More news: Brexit hangs in balance over tweaked deal

"They are really great people", she said.
This was not the only time "Full House" addressed cheating and school admission.
Loughlin was charged alongside fellow actress Felicity Huffman and dozens of other individuals on Tuesday as the Department of Justice announced a bust in what they're calling the "largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted".
Jesse "embellishes" both the twins' and his own credentials, a scam that's undone when Becky admits the scheme to the preschool's admissions officer. Huffman allegedly paid $15,000 to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scam on behalf of her eldest daughter and planned to take part in the scheme for her younger daughter.
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli (yes, Mossimo from Target) allegedly paid $500,000 for their daughters Isabella and Olivia Jade (who is a YouTube star) to attend the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team, even though the girls allegedly never competed in crew. More arrests could come in the weeks and months ahead.
