Hallmark cutting ties with actress Lori Loughlin

Allegations surfaced that they bribed sports recruiters inside the university to have their children accepted as athletes for the crew team, despite the fact that neither of their children participated in the sport.

Loughlin was now involved in the Garage Sale Mysteries movie series and When Calls the Heart, which is in its sixth season.

As Loughlin faces a federal indictment, Crown Media said that is "no longer working with" her and that it has halted development of all its productions involving her, including "Garage Sale Mysteries", even though the series is made by an independent third party. She was taken into custody Tuesday and released the same night. Lori Loughlin's surprising arrest this week poses a challenge for the family-friendly brand with heartland roots.

On Thursday, Hallmark Channel issued a statement distancing itself from Loughlin, who was arrested on Wednesday and charged with multiple iterations of mail fraud.

Loughlin and her lawyer, Perry Visconti, have yet to comment on Hallmark and Sephora's decision to cut ties.

Actress Felicity Huffman, known for her role on "Desperate Housewives", was also indicted in the scheme. She appeared in Los Angeles federal court Tuesday looking visibly exhausted, before posting $250,000 bail and surrendering her passport. Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying bribes to secure their daughters' admissions to top college programs.

Paris-based Sephora says in a statement Thursday that after reviewing the developments, the company has ended its partnership with 19-year-old Olivia Jade Giannulli "effective immediately".

Hallmark Cards, the Kansas City, Missouri, enterprise started in 1910, has moved quickly before to respond to any flare-ups, such as in when it removed a gift wrap from circulation after one person complained of seeing a swastika in its pattern.

While Stewart may exemplify her business, Loughlin wasn't the only engaging star on Hallmark's roster.

She's among the so-called "Christmas queens" who topline a slate of popular holiday movies.

"There are other actresses out there, whether they find or develop another to replace her", said Reis.
