Aunt Becky Memes & Jokes Hit the Internet

Kyle Richards was not expecting to hear her friend Lori Loughlin's name among those who were indicted as part of an alleged college admissions cheating scam.

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.

In the 26-year-old episode, Loughlin's character, Becky Katsopolis, faced a dilemma. Becky puts an end to the scam, but justifies her husband's actions - he just wanted what's best for their twins. During their interview at Bouton Hall, Becky caves, telling the admissions officer that they "may have embellished - lied - a bit on [their] application".

Loughlin and fellow actor Felicity Huffman, of Desperate Housewives fame, are among 50 people charged in an alleged criminal enterprise to get their children into top universities in the US.

They also allegedly did the same for their younger daughter, who enrolled at USC last fall. "It's the worst thing Felicity Huffman's ever done, and the second worst thing Lori Loughlin has [done]", he said, insinuating that Fuller House was an even greater wrongdoing.

Loughlin, who along with her real-life husband are accused of trying to smooth the path to college for their two daughters, had enjoyed a rather clean-cut image in Hollywood up to this point.

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

Huffman was released on a $250,000 bail on Wednesday.
