Procter take her son's exam.

And so far at least one of the university's named in that class action lawsuit has responded. A Stanford spokesperson saying the suit is without merit. Let's bring in entertainment expert Larry Hackett, managing part of 10ten media to break down the Hollywood side of it. The irony, Lori Loughlin plays this person with a wholesome reputation through so many of her role, aunt Becky. Is her reputation gone for good. It's in a bit of a bind. I'm not sure if it's gone for good. The hallmark chapel is a marketing channel so I think there is an opportunity here after a certain period of time is done and speak to their lawyers and the Kays are adjudicated to do mea culpas. I lost my way. I lost my moral grounding and people can understand doing things for my kids. I think this one is salvageable. It's going to be tough and have to navigate it. Really? You think that? I don't know. I don't know. What about the kids? You said I did it for my kids but what about Olivia jade? We don't know whether or not she knew what her parents were Right. Is it fair that they're losing lucrative opportunity, as well. It's inevitable. Whether it's fair or not, is it fair for them to get paid crazy amounts of represent makeup companies. Marketers run away at the first -- Look at the comments on her -- They're brutal. Any kind of hint of scandal that may affect the market or advertiser they flee. They always do. Sometimes they come back. Sometimes they don't. Felicity Huffman has a series coming out on Netflix. What does Netflix do about it. I think they plow ahead. I said I may tune in to see "Garage sale mysteries" to see. I think at a certain period they will perhaps appear on a show like this and explain what went wrong and I think people will respond to it. It's about the kids and I think people have a certain connection to that. Among the Hollywood group won't they be ostracized. You think they are the only ones that did this? Touche. Okay, thank you, Larry. Always like your perspective.
