On Thursday, a rep for Crown Media - the umbrella group that includes the Hallmark Channel - confirmed to Fox News that the company has cut ties with the 54-year-old star. Her status as a YouTube personality and Instagram influencer has placed a larger target on her back for the media.
Actress Lori Loughlin may be free on bail following her arrest over her role in the ongoing "Operation Varsity Blues" college admissions scandal, but that doesn't mean her troubles were over.
Olivia has since come under fire for "ignorant" comments she has made about college, including an interview just last week in which she admitted that she only went to college because her parents forced her.
Singer and eight colleges were named as defendants in the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages including refunds of application fees paid to the schools over seven years by unsuccessful applicants.
Isabella Rose Giannulli, Loughlin's eldest daughter, hasn't faced as much public criticism as her sister to this point. "You can study theater [and] whatever you need to also at school.' I think I've shown her and presented all the pitfalls that there might be". So did her empire, despite Stewart's efforts to separate her personal actions from it: "Wrong - you're the brand", he said.
However, Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was reportedly arrested on March 12 on charges of "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud."Radar Online reported that Mossimo appeared in court that same day and was ordered to be released on a $1 million bond".
Olivia also previously collaborated or had partnerships with Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Boohoo, Smile Direct Club, Princess Polly, Smashbox and TooFaced, which are both owned by Estee Lauder Cosmetics. Both Huffman and Loughlin allegedly had their phone calls recorded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which helped to indict them. Fox News noted that Loughlin had been filming a movie in Vancouver.
The scam is said to have involved faking Olivia's sporting records to make it seem like she was part of a school rowing crew. According to multiple reports, the actress landed at LAX on Tuesday during her husband's court hearing.
Coaches from Yale, Stanford, Wake Forest and Georgetown universities and USC, among others, are implicated in the case.
