Full House episode eerily similar to real life scandal for Lori Loughlin

Full House Season 6 Episode 15, "Be True to Your Pre-School", does share some similar qualities with the college admissions scandal.

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.

Loughlin was charged alongside fellow actress Felicity Huffman and dozens of other individuals on Tuesday as the Department of Justice announced a bust in what they're calling the "largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted".

After the news broke today that Full House's Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives starFelicity Huffman were among the 40 people allegedly involved in a college admissions bribery scandal, people immediately started to wonder whether they would face any jail time.

According to TMZ, the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed up at Loughlin's house on Tuesday to take her in, but she was not home.

Life may be imitating art for Lori Loughlin. If this were, say, the real world in 2019, it would be an issue, but in Full House's world, it's just another Uncle Jesse quirk. On Tuesday afternoon, she deleted her Instagram account. As you can see, Loughlin's responses are simply catch-phrases from Full House.

On the show, DJ has a bad dream about taking the SAT and Uncle Jesse not only takes a peek at the test answers, he also tries to sneak a cellphone into the testing room so DJ could cheat. Her two children had the chance to attend an elite school that promised to put their lives on the "fast track", but she and Jesse (John Stamos) weren't entirely honest on the application. "At some point, people are going to figure out that your kid is stupid", he joked.

Huffman and Loughlin are among 50 people facing criminal charges in connection with "Operation Varsity Blues".

The following meme involves one of DJ Tanner's most epic facial expressions.

And then there was that one episode of Full House that may have been a premonition of sorts. "They're saying this could be the Becky with the Good Hair that Beyoncé warned us about", he said. Damn Aunt Becky, ' Simone Scott asserted.
