For some reason, Lori Loughlin isn’t getting it.
Aunt Becky from “Full House” and her husband, Massimo Giannulli, have been indicted twice by the US Attorney in Boston for mail fraud in the college admissions scandal.
Most of the other parents who were caught, including Felicity Huffman, have pleaded guilty and will accept their sentences.
But the Giannullis are doubling down. They’re pleading not guilty. They want a trial. Loughling may think this is an episode of a Hallmark Hall of Fame show. They want to take their chances with a jury.
Celebrities often triumph in jury trials because the juries are wowed by their TV personas. But a jury in Boston? An academic city with a smart working class? I’d be nervous about this one.
Anyway, maybe the Olsen twins will make a surprise appearance. This should be good.
Meantime, Hallmark has renewed Loughlin’s Hallmark show, “When Calls the Heart,” for a seventh season, but the actress won’t be back. Hallmark has broken all ties with her.
