Lori Loughlin's school cheating 'Full House' episode resurfaces

Whether it was a "Becky with the good hair" reference, a jab at Aunt Becky from Fuller House, or a Desperate Housewives quip, late-night hosts across the board had something to say on Tuesday night after news of the mind-boggling college admissions scandal hit the airwaves.

She and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are facing charges for paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters would be recruits on the University of Southern California crew team. The Jan. 26, 1993 episode, called "Be True to Your Pre-School", featured Loughlin's character, Becky Katsopolis, opposing such deception.

"At the end of the day, we are talking about parents who tried to help their children", Leonard said, "and crossed the line in doing so".

The Los Angeles Times reminded us that in an old episode of the series, the couple dealt with being less than truthful during an application process to get their twin sons Nicky and Alex into pre-school. During their interview at Bouton Hall, Becky caves, telling the admissions officer that they "may have embellished - lied - a bit on [their] application". "You're right", says Uncle Jesse. "If I don't lie for them, who will?"

"They're really great people, and you kind of just go, 'I'm really so confused by all of this, '" Richards confessed. Maybe the fast track isn't it. The women are accused of paying bribes to get their daughters into elite universities.

Many social media users pointed out the parallels (and differences) between Loughlin's real-life situation and on-screen life lesson.

"Loughlin was part of a notorious scheme where they made a pair of twins pretend to be one person", he quipped about how Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen both played Michelle Tanner on Full House as children.

Giannulli, who appeared in court Tuesday afternoon, was released on a $1 million bond and had to surrender his passport, restricting his travel to the continental U.S. The judge did mention the fashion designer's "wife" as his co-defendant and noted that he would allow her to travel only to Canada to continue working.

"I'm their father", Uncle Jesse decides. "Aunt Becky should've know better after all of that", another said.
