In 2017, actress Lori Loughlin appeared on the “Today” show with her oldest daughter. They spoke about different topics including Loughlin taking her oldest child to college.


The video and interview have now resurfaced as the actress faces charges for her involvement in a college admissions bribery scheme.

An interview on the “Today” show featuring Lori Loughlin has since resurfaced as the college admissions bribery scheme investigation continues. Speaking to hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, the actress opened up about her oldest child, Isabella Giannulli, going to college.


Loughlin said, "I think I'm in complete denial,'' as she spoke about Isabella leaving for her freshman year of college that fall. Getting slightly emotional, the actress added, "When I think about it too much, it will make me cry."

Loughlin also stated, “She’s not going too far, but my husband keeps saying, ‘Lori you’re not going to see her, so just be prepared.’” The "Fuller House" star is currently facing charges by the FBI who allege that she and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were part of a bribery scheme to get their children into USC.

The couple has a younger daughter, Olivia Jade. Isabella is currently a student at USC and during the interview, she shared that she was interested in acting in movies or television.

She stated, "I just love all of it,'' and “I'd be happy to do anything." Isabella also revealed that her mother had "helped me with so many auditions also, which is so nice."


On Tuesday, unsealed court documents alleged that Loughlin and her husband were among 50 people who were charged for taking part in the scheme. The scheme is said to have made $25 million in college entrance exam cheating.

The accused allegedly paid monies to get their children into top universities. It's the largest college admissions prosecution by the Justice Department to date.


According to John Bonavolonta, FBI special agent in charge:

“We believe everyone charged here today had a role in fostering a culture of corruption and greed that created an uneven playing field for students trying to get into these schools the right way through hard work, good grades and community service."

Loughlin and her husband have been accused of paying $500,000 in exchange for having their daughters appear as recruits on the USC crew team, despite having no real crew experience. The couple has since been to court after being arrested.


They were both released on $1 million dollar bonds pending certain stipulations.

Another actress “Desperate Housewives” Felicity Huffman is accused of paying a bribe to help get her daughter into a top school. She appeared in court on Tuesday and was released on a $250,000 bond.

The judge ruled that Huffman would have restricted travel to the continental US. The actress allegedly paid $15,000, which she disguised as a charitable donation, to allow her daughter to take part in the scheme.
