Whether it was a "Becky with the good hair" reference, a jab at Aunt Becky from Fuller House, or a Desperate Housewives quip, late-night hosts across the board had something to say on Tuesday night after news of the mind-boggling college admissions scandal hit the airwaves.
The 1993 episode, titled "Be True to Your Pre-School", had a happy ending - neither parent went to jail or faced media scrutiny for just "doing what's best" for their kids. When Jesse realizes his kids won't get in, he blatantly lies on the application.
"I know you want what's best for them, but you know what, maybe the fast track isn't it", Becky admonishes Jesse, per People. Becky says to Jesse near the end of the episode.
Loughlin, her husband designer Mossimo Giannulli and fellow actress Felicity Huffman are among a group facing federal charges because of allegations they paid bribes for their children to attend prestigious universities. "I'm their father. If I don't lie for them, who will?" Although Loughlin has starred in several other television series', her lovable role on Full/er House has become the prime target for these posts.
Journalist Ernest Owens brought up Abigail Fischer, the woman who sued claiming affirmative action prevented her from getting into the University of Texas, Austin, and added: "Live footage of when Abigail Fisher finds out it wasn't qualified Black people via affirmative action who took her spot - but wealthy white people like Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin who used cronyism, capitalism, and nepotism instead".
Jesse "embellishes" both the twins' and his own credentials, a scam that's undone when Becky admits the scheme to the preschool's admissions officer.
The reality star also opened up about her friendship with Loughlin, 54, star of "Fuller House".
Ben Dreyfuss, the son of Richard Dreyfuss, appeared to harp on nepotism and commented: 'I got into college the old fashioned way: by letting my father's celebrity speak for itself'.
