Disgraced Lori Loughlin shows no shame with ‘family’ TV comeback

Published

on

“You have done enough. Have you no sense of decency?”

OK, so maybe Lori Loughlin’s return to acting — after serving two months in federal prison last year for her role in the college admissions scandal — doesn’t quite equal those famous words uttered by Joseph Welch to Sen. Joseph McCarthy during the nationally televised Army-McCarthy hearings in 1954. I mean, she found fame on a mindless TV show called “Full House.” ‘Nuf said.

Still, the announcement that Loughlin, 57, will mount her comeback with a spinoff of “When Calls the Heart” on something called GAC Family, first reported by Deadline, leaves a sour taste in that “I just threw up in my mouth a little bit” kind of way, with a moral compass pointing way out of whack. I once wrote that Loughlin destroyed her television career when she was allegedly involved in the scandal.I was wrong, obviously, but I do think the stink of her eventual conviction, and her blithe, tone-deaf behavior since then, will dog her for some time. And, c’mon, two months in the slammer? Really? It could’ve been worse: Her TV colleague, Felicity Huffman, 58, toughed out a grueling 11 days behind bars (I use that term loosely) after pleading guilty in the college admissions scandal.

I guess Loughlin — whose controversial daughter Olivia Jade Giaunulli, 21, is currently attempting a comeback of her own on ABC’S “Dancing with the Stars” — showed her remorse by plunking down $13 million for a Palm Desert getaway with her husband, 58-year-old Mossimo Gianulli — who, by the way, served five months in the federal slammer for his role in the scandal. They sure seem remorseful. I’d call it obnoxious.

Forget that Loughlin was dumped by her vanilla, Wonder Bread network, Hallmark, in 2019, even before her sentencing. She was too much even for them and was fired from its saccharine-sweet movie franchises “When Calls the Heart” and “Garage Sale Mystery,” both of which went a long way toward dusting off Louglin’s “Where Are They Now?” status. She was also dumped from her Netflix reboot series, “Fuller House,” a family comedy that couldn’t countenance a law-breaking co-star, even one who wore the all-too-predictable celebrity “look at me” eyeglasses in the lead-up to her sentencing — to prove she was serious (and fooling no one).

So, yes, it’s a bit disturbing that Loughlin will return to television, albeit on a new network, GAC Family, whose execs seem to think everything is sweet and good in the world of Hollywood entitlement and sleaze. It helps, I guess, that GAC is run by Bill Abbott, the former CEO of Crown Media Family Networks, which oversees Hallmark Channel. But I’m guessing the decision to hire Loughlin wasn’t made by Abbott alone; there’s strength in numbers, and how else can the blame be spread around evenly if it all goes belly-up?

As per Deadline, Loughlin will appear as her “When Calls the Heart” character, Abigail Stanton, in “When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas,” airing Dec. 18. Nothing like sugarcoating her return under the safe, criticism-proof veil of holiday programming. Oh wait, I just criticized it. Forgive me for being cynical — but it’s a cynical, tasteless move.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
