'Full House' episode may have foreshadowed Lori Loughlin college admission scam with Aunt Becky and Uncle...

Aunt Becky Memes & Jokes Hit the Internet

Gordon Caplan, who prosecutors say paid $75,000 previous year to have some of his daughter's wrong answers corrected on a college entrance exam, was placed on leave from his post as co-chairman of the global law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher, the company said on Wednesday.

While her younger sister has been getting the most attention from the ordeal, Isabella is also at the center of the massive college admissions fraud scandal.

The Fuller House star was released on a $1 million bond on Wednesday, ET has learned, after being taken into Federal Bureau of Investigation custody earlier in the day for her alleged involvement in a college bribery scam involving dozens of people, including Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli.

Her other daughter, Isabella, has also made her Instagram page private.

Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade was on Rick Caruso's yacht in the Bahamas when federal prosecutors announced her mother would be charged with paying bribes to get her daughter accepted to USC, TMZ reported.

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin via Getty Images Olivia Jade Giannulli reportedly spent the night on the USC trustees chairman's yacht while her mom, Lori Loughlin, was being accused of paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to get her admitted to the school under false pretenses. She said her comment about being interested in partying only "was super ignorant and totally came across like I'm not grateful for college", in the apology video. "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". "Can you tell us how to proceed?" Do the best you can 'cause in life if you give it your all and you do the best you can, that's it.

According to reports, Loughlin and her husband paid about $500,000 for their two daughters to be labeled as recruits to the USC crew team, even though the students were not rowers. The report from federal authorities notes that in most cases, the students were unaware of what their parents were doing to get them into these prestigious schools all over North America. It's clear from your attitude that you never liked college.

The Fuller House star is among dozens charged in an alleged college admissions cheating scam involving elite colleges and universities including Yale, Georgetown, the University of Southern California and Stanford.

Around the time that she was allegedly involved in the scheme, "Extra" caught up with Lori, who expressed how "proud" she was of daughter Olivia Jade at the 2017 Marie Claire Fresh Faces event in Los Angeles. Fox News noted that Loughlin had been filming a movie in Vancouver.

Like Giannulli, who was released on $1 million bail Tuesday, Loughlin put up her home for collateral as part of the bond.
