Olivia Jade: My Parents RUINED My Career as an Influencer!!!

All of Lori Loughlin and Missimo Giannulli’s plans amounted to nothing, because Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose dropped out of college.

According to a new report, at first, Olivia just hoped that backlash over her parents’ arrest would blow over. Clearly, it has not.

Now, that hope has turned to anger — because this fraud scandal has completely derailed Olivia’s career.

Us Weekly reports that Olivia Jade is “very upset” with her parents over this college fraud scandal.

“Olivia blames her mom and dad for this scandal,” the insider shares.

That sounds pretty fair.

“And,” the source adds, Olivia blames them “for the downfall of her career.”

Well, it’s no coincidence that she has been losing sponsors and partnerships left and right. It’s all because of this scandal.

According to the insider, she “was initially trying to shrug off the scandal as something that would pass after a week and she could go back to her life.”

A lot of scandals work that way. This one does not seem to.

As we previously reported, Olivia has been hemorrhaging partnerships, losing Sephora, TRESemmé, and HP.

Her clothing line on the online boutique Princess Polly was also shelved.

This isn’t some hobby of Olivia’s — this is her career.

And it has all gone up in flames.

“Now that her endorsement deals have fallen through,” the source says. “She is very upset with her parents.”

“Olivia didn’t even show interest in going to college,” the insider points out.

She has made that extremely clear in multiple videos.

“She wanted to take time and work on her beauty career,” the source notes.

“But,” the insider says. “Her parents were the ones who wanted her to get an education.”

To some, it may sound like terrible priorities for Olivia to be mad at her parents when they may be on the verge of going to jail.

And many have already been tempted to view Olivia and Isabella as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory villains.

But let’s look at this from her perspective.

She’s a teenager who already has a career that lets her rake in a substantial amount of money.

People who’ve never once seen her mother act tune in.

Now picture this: while she was still a minor in high school, Olivia’s parents decided that she should go to college.

We don’t know how much the sisters actually knew about their parents’ alleged scheme, just that they posed on rowing machines.

Clearly less than interested, she went along with what they wanted for her while still keeping up with her work as an Influencer.

But now her reputation and career are in shambles and she’s losing sponsorships left and right.

We think that anyone would be outraged if thier parents’ pushiness cost them their career.

Obviously, we don’t know how much Olivia knew about the fraud scam, and we don’t know when.

Minors who go along with their parents’ crimes, particularly when they may not realize that they’re breaking the law, is a complicated matter.

Now, there are a lot of people who are happy to hate people like Olivia Jade.

She’s not only the rich daughter of rich people, but she already has a successful career as an Influencer.

Some are resentful, some are envious. This scandal embodies a lot of frustrations about how the rich play by different rules.

A lot of people don’t like the concept of Influencers.

Let’s be real — we’re all a little jealous of people who are just hot for a living.

But Olivia’s career isn’t necessarily in the toilet.

People who have never before heard of her are suddenly seeing her name and her face everywhere.

One day, Olivia could stage a comeback with more followers and therefore more influence than ever before.

Lee Daniels Talks Pain, Anger in Wake of Jussie Smollett Scandal

Last week. Jussie Smollett pleaded not guilty to all charges. His case is controversial for a litany of reasons.

In the mean time, those who know and believed in him most are still reeling from his scandal.

Empire creator Lee Daniels is now speaking out publicly about the way that Jussie’s drama has thrown the show for a loop.

Lee daniels on instagram

“I was so in my feelings last week that I forgot to post about @empirefox & @staronfox,” Daniels admits.

He continues: “I guess y’all know why.”

He follows that line with a series of the “eyes” emoji, which most of us use when our favorite Instagram thirst follow posts a thirst trap.

In his case, it’s conveying something very diferent — eyes wide open in shock.

“Anyway,” Daniels writes. “I’m back and I’m finally ok!!!!”

“Oh my God,” Daniels exclaims. “These pase couple of weeks have been a freaking roller coaster.”

“We — me and my cast — have experienced pain, and anger, and sadness, and frustration,” he confesses.

“And,” Daniels continues. “We really don’t know how to deal with it, you know?”

Who among us would know how to deal with a scandal of this magnitude?

“Because it happened,” he notes. “Everything that you’re seeing tonight, prior to the incident.”

Scripted television (and most reality television) is filmed months in advance of it ever airing.

Jussie smollett at court

“And this is not what the show was made for,” Lee Daniels asserts.

He explains: “The show was made to bring America together.”

Daniels adds that the show was intended “To talk about the atrocities that are happening right now in the streets.”

He then suggests that people watch both Star and Empire.

“Watch!” he concludes.

Jussie smollett mug shot

Weeks ago, together with six other Empire producers, Daniels put out a statement on Jussie’s removal from the remainder of the season.

“Jussie has been an important member of our EMPIRE family for the past five years,” the statement begins.

The statement continues: “And we care about him deeply.”

“While these allegations are very disturbing,” they acknowledge. “We are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out.”

Sometimes, when things don’t make sense, you just have to have a measure of faith that the truth will present itself, one way or the other.

Otherwise, you fall into cynicism or worse, hopelessness.

“We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show,” the statement continues.

“And to avoid further disruption on set,” the producers write. “We have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

Jamal is, of course, played by Jussie Smollett.

For the record, Jussie has maintained his innocence throughout this ordeal.

Jussie smollett this is how he staged his assault

Police say that htere are clear records of a phone call Jussie made to his alleged attackers, and that he paid them.

There have been multiple “explanations” for his alleged motive in staging the attack.

It is difficult to imgine someone faking a hate crime — especially when real ones happen all of the time.

Like those who work on Empire, we hope that the truth will soon reveal itself beyond any shadow of a doubt.

One way or the other, we will all be able to put this horrible incident behind us.

Adrien Broner Threatens to Shoot Gay People in Vicious Homophobic Rant

In a shocking, slur-filled, homophobic rant, professional boxer Adrien Broner makes some very scary threats.

He describes, in graphic detail, a willingness to murder gay men with a gun.

The online feud that prompted his vile rant is too weird to believe.

Adrien broner homophobic rant 01

“Look, this is a PSA,” Adrien Broner says in a new video shared to his Instagram Stories.

Broner is a professional boxer who has been in legal trouble in the past, and once faced charges of sexual battery.

“Look,” Broner says. “If any f–, punk ass n—- come run up on me, trying to touch me on all that gay s–t.”

“I’m letting you know right now,” he warns.

Be warned: this homophobic rant is about to include violent details.

Adrien broner homophobic rant 02

He then delivers some very clear, explicit promises with regard to the violence that he would inflict.

“if I ain’t got my gun on me,” he suggests. “I’m knocking you the f–k out.”

If you’re worried about what he’d do if he had a gun on his person, he confirms your worst fears.

“If I’ve got my gun on me, I’m gonna shoot you in your f–king face,” Broner says.

Adrien broner homophobic rant 03

“That’s on God and them,” Broner claims.

“I’m not playing with none of these n—-s,” he adds.

Then, in case it was not already absolutely clear that he is deeply homophobic, he doubles down.

Broner insists: “I don’t like gay s–t.”

Why, you ask, is he dropping slurs and promises of homophobic violence?

Andrew c caldwell i am delivered guy

So, some quick backstory is that Andrew C Caldwell has suggested that Broner is gay.

Caldwell rose to fame several years ago for the “I’m not gay no more, I am delivered” viral video.

(It is sometimes simply referred to as the “I am delivert” video, because of his enunciation, though that’s a little excessive)

Caldwell has “accused” Broner of flirting with him.

Broner has fired back, claiming that it’s Caldwell who has been sliding into his DMs.

Broner has very vocally demanded that Caldwell stop messaging him, under threat of violence.

Caldwell is said to be considering legal action in response.

Adrien broner

Obviously, this whole thing is nuts and also embarrassing for everyone involved.

With extremely rare exceptions, no one should “out” anyone else with claims, true or not, about their sexuality.

But Broner’s reaction to the claims is extreme to say the least.

The fact that Broner is describing a paranoia that gay men will sexually assault him is homophobic.

His vow that he would murder a gay man sounds like a declaration of intent to commit a hate crime while claiming self-defense.

Adrien broner homophobic rant bonus image

Unfortunately, the “Gay Panic” legal defense, which attempts to justify murdering a gay person if the murderer claims that the gay person flirted with them, is a legal courtroom strategy in 47 out of 50 states.

What Broner is suggesting is not original.

But he doesn’t seem to have any real reason for being paranoid.

Just because he allegedly expresses sexual interest through groping doesn’t mean that others will.

We don’t know who has been sliding into whose DMs, but if there really is a lawsuit, maybe that will be cleared up.

There are ways to deny gay rumors that don’t make you sound like a dangerously violent homophobe. Maybe try that, instead.

Lori Loughlin Sent High-Five Emoji to College Scam Ringleader

Almost as shocking as the college admissions fraud scandal itself is seeing how brazenly those arrested kept electronic records of their alleged crimes.

Court documents show exactly when Lori Loughlin learned that her alleged bribery scheme had been a success.

And how did Lori respond to the “good” news at the time? By sending her coconspirator an emoji. She’s very chill about crimes.

People got a look at the court affidavit in Lori Loughlin’s case and reports upon its contents.

“On or about November 16, 2017,” the document reads. “[Singer] sent the Giannullis an e-mail bearing the subject line, ‘CONGRATULATIONS!!!’”

This was an email “with their younger daughter’s conditional acceptance letter attached.â€� 

Said younger daughter is Olivia Jade, the now-infamous influencer.

Rick Singer is the ringleader of the scam — who has already pleaded guilty.

“Loughlin responded, ‘This is wonderful news!” within the text of the email.

According to the affidavit, she then responded with a “high-five emoji.”

When spending $500,000 to get your daughter into what many would consider a safety school by pretending she’s an athlete, discretion is vital.

“[Singer] replied: ‘Please continue to keep hush hush till March,’â€� the affidavit reports.

According to court documents: “Loughlin responded: ‘Yes, of course.'”

Those of us who can barely wait a few weeks to tell our friends what we got them for their birthdays can only imagine how hard that was.

Imagine waiting months to tell people that your daughter was accepted to the exact university that you wanted her to attend.

Of course, the whole paying-half-a-million-dollars thing may have helped remind Lori to keep it quiet.

Lori Loughlin was best known for her role on Full House.

In recent years, her career has focused more upon guest roles on other shows — and, of course, on Lifetime.

She has been a staple on the network for half a decade.

Now, just as brands are severing ties with her daughter Olivia, Lori is losing acting gigs.

She was fired by the Hallmark channel, and many believe that her acting days may be behind her.

Considering what she is facing, that may be the least of her worries.

The fear that her acting career is at an end may be premature.

After all, television leads us to believe that prisons put on plays sometimes.

And like the more than 40 other defendants, including fellow actress Felicity Huffman, Lori could be facing prison time.

This massive fraud spanned the nation, and if convicted, she may spend years behind bars.

That is … assuming that she doesn’t cut some sort of plea deal.

That said, it seems likely that prosecutors and judges alike will be eager to make an example of these priviledged parents.

Remember, for every student whose placement was bought, a student who applied honestly had to be waitlisted.

People are divided over the most surreal part of this scandal.

Is it that CEOs and actors pay thousands or even millions in bribes to secure admission for their children?

Is it that Olivia Jade is a teen with 1.4 million Instagram followers and can make thousands of dollars with a single posted advertisement?

Is it that this scandal immediately got these women fired, but there are still notorious abusers and predators employed elsewhere in the entertainment industry?

Is it that the word coxswains exists?

By the way, Lori and Felicity are both being sued for half a trillion dollars.

That amount may be a little over-the-top, but it reflects a common sentiment of moral outrage.

And this whole elaborate scheme was all for nothing.

Universities are looking into any students whose admissions may have been bought through bribes.

But Lori’s daughters Olivia and Isabella aren’t sticking around to learn their fates — the two have dropped out of USC.

People on Twitter have joked that, on the Law & Order: SVU version of this story, the twist would be that Olivia had leaked the story to give her an excuse to quit school.

I’d watch that episode.

Lori Loughlin: FIRED by Hallmark Channel Following Arrest

Following Lori Loughlin’s arrest for her role in the college admissions fraud scandal, the social and financial fallout has been swift.

Her young daughter, Olivia Jade, is losing partnerships left and right.

And now Lori has lost her bread and butter — because the Hallmark Channel has severed all ties with her.

Crown Media Family Networks released a statement on Thursday.

“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” the statement begins.

Crown Media Family Networks then announces: “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin.”

“And,” the statement adds. “Have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin”

The statement notes that this is “including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production.”

Lori’s career in recent years has made her something of a fixture on Hallmark.

She has appeared in a number of television movies — recently including one of the channel’s infamously cheesy Christmas movies.

Since 2014, Lori has held a starring role on the television series, When Calls The Heart.

(I looked that up and it is real, but if I were sitting around making up fake Hallmark TV titles, I could not come up with a better parody)

The next episode of this show was scheduled to air on Sunday, March 17, but it will not.

“We are evaluating all creative options related to When Calls the Heart series,” Crown Media Family Networks reveals to E! News.

On Tuesday, Lori’s husband Mossimo Giannulli was arrested without incident.

The next day, Lori was arrested after a night flight.

She had been away filming.

Lori has been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

More than forty others were charged with using fraud and bribes to guarantee their child’s college admission.

In her case, she and her husband allegedly paid two bribes totally $500,000 to ensure that their daughters were admitted to USC.

The fraud? Making it appear that Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose were part of the University of Southern California’s rowing team.

The FBI made the arrests on Tuesday morning.

According to the affidavit, the crimes spanned “Beginning in or about 2011, and continuing through the present.”

“The defendants,” the affidavit identifies. “Principally individuals whose high-school aged children were applying to college.”

The allegation is that they “conspired with others to use bribery and other forms of fraud.”

The affidavit says that the purpose was “to facilitate their children’s admission to colleges and universities in the District of Massachusetts and elsewhere.”

The targets were “including Yale University, Stanford University, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California, and the University of California — Los Angeles, among others.”

Lori is not the only one in the family whose career has already been impacted.

Olivia Jade, the younger of her two college-aged daughters, has already begun to lose product endorsement deals and partnerships.

For an influencer, those kinds of business relationships are absolutely vital.

There are a lot of questions about how many teens whose parents participated in this scheme may have known.

Plenty may have been kept totally in the dark.

But since reports say that Olivia and Isabella posed on rowing machines to help sell the story, many have concluded that they were in on it.

And now they are in on the social and financial fallout for their parents’ alleged crimes.

Lori Loughlin: Will Her Daughters Be Expelled from USC?

Following her arrest on Wednesday, Full House actress Lori Loughlin was released on $1 million bail.

She and her husband are accused of paying half a million actual dollars in bribes to guarantee their daughters a place at USC.

Now that the fraud has been exposed, will the two daughters be expelled?

Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud.

The couple’s 20-year-old daughter, Isabella Rose, attends the University of Southern California.

So does their 19-year-old daughter, Olivia Jade.

Olivia, who is an influencer, has seen a great deal of pushback over remarks that she made about school not being a real priority for her.

Notably, she was on a school trustee’s yacht when news of the scandal broke on Tuesday.

Clearly, it was a priority to Lori and Missimo.

The couple is accused of having paid $500,000 over the course of two bribes.

The scheme, revealed this week, was to have both daughters labeled as recruits for the school’s rowing team.

Neither of the young women are actually part of the team.

The alleged plot’s goal was to have both daughters labeled as recruited to guarantee their admission to the school.

A media relations rep for the University of Southern California spoke to Entertainment Tonight.

“We are going to conduct a case-by-case review for current students and graduates,” the rep says.

The line about graduates is especially intriguing — and suggests that someone could lose a diploma over this.

USC will be looking into students “that may be connected to the scheme alleged by the government.”

They don’t name Isabella or Olivia, of course, but you know that they have to be high on the university’s list.

“We will make informed, appropriate decisions,” the rep assures Entertainment Tonight.

But the university will only be making these rulings “once those reviews have been completed.”

We know that some people — namely talk show villain Wendy Williams — are out for blood over this scandal.

The rep for USC cautions that they want to be fair, and to not punish people who were unaware of what was done at their behest.

“Some of these individuals,” the rep notes. “May have been minors at the time of their application process.”

While they’ll be carefully making decisions about current and past students, future students are another story.

“Applicants in the current admissions cycle who are connected to the scheme alleged by the government,” the rep begins.

The rep assures that these applicants “will be denied admission to USC.”

Voiding someone’s diploma or transcript or kicking them out of school is a difficult, heavy decision.

This is especially true when administrators still need to determine if the students were aware of what happened.

But prospective students do not yet have that metaphorical “foot in the door.”

The massive college admission fraud scandal is horrifying for many reasons.

Notably, this guaranteed admissions to unqualified or underqualified applicants, while those who had worked hard were waitlisted.

What makes this so insulting is that parents who can afford to shell out hundreds of thousands in bribes don’t need this for their kids.

Lori and her husband could have gifted their daughters $250,000 each and called it a day.

What 18-year-old would say no to that?

Instead, they allegedly broke laws and paid major bribes to give Olivia and Isabella the college “experience.”

Wendy Williams: Lock Up Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman’s Kids, Too!

Dozens of people were indicted and arrested this week, including actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, over a nationwide college admission scam.

Naturally, television talk show villain Wendy Williams was eager to weigh in.

She thinks that the cheating parents are just the tip of the iceberg — and wants to see the teens locked up, too!

Wendy williams on college cheating scam

“The rest of us struggle while the rich continue to take advantage of us,” Wendy laments before her cheering audience.

Wendy Williams has an estimated net worth of around $60 million.

“Lock em’ all up!” Wendy demands.

“It’s disgusting,” she says. “Horrible.”

Wendy is positively gleeful over the undignified arrest of the women and the fact that they could face considerable prison sentences.

Schadenfreude is a major component of Wendy’s brand, so that is no surprise.

Lori loughlin daughter

Wendy goes over the extent of the scandal, which includes dozens of individuals.

While the two most famous women arrested are actresses, it looks like a lot of these folks were CEOs.

The public has not yet seen any evidence that most of the children involved knew about the conspiracy.

But Wendy has a theory.

She believes that the teens whose parents took this step must have known what their parents were up to and been in on it.

She says that after the parents are tried, their children should be next.

Olivia jade photo

“Lori Loughlin,” Wendy notes. “She and her husband are the worst of the lot so far.”

Full House, what’s going to happen to Fuller House? Do you cancel the show because she’s a liar?” she asks, adding: “I wouldn’t mind!”

“I mean, this is terrible,” she observes. “Felicity Huffman is the lesser of the two evils, so they say…”

“Who’s going to be friends with these liars now?” she asks. “Who’s going to be friends with their kids?”

Hopeful that the children will be arrested, Wendy warns: “… For you kids who were cheating and lying, get ready.”

Felicity huffman pic

Despite considering Felicity’s crime of “fixing” an exam score to be lesser than Lori passing her daughter off as an athlete, Wendy revels in her arrest.

Felicity was arrested early in the morning while her children and husband were home.

Often, wealthy or otherwise privileged individuals charged with non-violent offenses can simply turn themselves in to police.

In this case, it is clear that the FBI wanted to make an example of those whom they arrested.

An early morning arrest at one’s home is undignified, frightening, and embarrassing.

As you can hear in her voice, Wendy is absolutely delighted to see Felicity Huffman in such a situation.

Wendy williams is back

Wendy speculates that the younger of Felicity and William H. Macy’s children asked to not be included in this scheme.

All that we really know is that Felicity allegedly made arrangements to “fix” an exam for her younger daughter but then backed out of that.

That younger daughter is very academically oriented and determined.

It may be that Felicity concluded that her younger daughter wouldn’t need any help passing a college entrance exam or any other kind of test.

There is no indication that one of the teens is more ethical than the other.

Honestly, on top of everything else, we wonder how so many of these kids feel knowing that their parents didn’t think that they could cut it on their own.

Lori Loughlin Free on $1 Million Bond, Must Surrender Passport

We have an update on the Lori Loughlin college cheating scandal that continues to rock the nation.

As previously reported, the actress forever known as Aunt Becky was arrested on Wednesday afternoon.

She was taken into custody by FBI agents in California after returning to the United States from Vancouver, where she had been filming a television show.

We can now also report that Loughlin subsequently appeared before a judge in Los Angeles, where her bail was set at $1 million, the same amount also set for her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli.

Giannulli was not in court on Wednesday, but both individuals were set free after securing this amount against their home, as well as other assets.

Judge Steve Kim originally said at the hearing that he wasn’t “comfortable” providing Loughlin with her passport — but then relented and set conditions for her work.

For example, Loughlin may head to Vancouver to film two more projects in April and May and then to this same city in July for a series.

But she must surrender her passport in December.

Loughlin will also face charges in Boston Federal Court on March 29.

As you’ve likely read about by now… the actress is in a boatload of trouble.

Along with Felicity Huffman and 48 other, less famous men and women, Loughlin is accused of illegally funneling money to a middle man in California.

This man then worked with an employee at the University of Southern California to break the law and submit Loughlin’s daughter’s as applicants for entry under false pretenses.

And Loughlin’s case is especially galling.

The mother of two and allegedly gave $500,000 to say her daughter Olivia Jade was part of her high school rowing team.

She even had Olivia pose for photos on a rowing machine to make this fradulent argument.

Using this bribery money, along with the fake picture and other phony/doctored pieces of information, Olivia was submitted to USC as a prospective athlete, which lowered her admission standards.

According to the official indictment, Loughlin and her husband “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team – despite the fact that they did not participate in crew – thereby facilitating their admission to USC.â€�

On Tuesday morning, news went viral of an FBI investigation (amazingly code-named “Operation Varsity Blues”)  into a group of wealthy parents who are accused of paying between $200,000 and $6.5 million to admit their children into elite universities.

Their reported schemes include everything from faking SAT and ACT scores to paying college coaches to have their children designated as athletic recruits, as is the case here.

Making matters a million times worse for Loughlin?

Olivia Jade is some sort of huge social media star who said on video last year that she’s only at school to party.

Moreover, per TMZ, she spent Tuesday night on the yacht of the Chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees! This was after news of the scandal broke!

These people are the worst!

Huffman, for her part, allegedly gave $15,000 “to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter,� the indictment states.

She was arrested on Tuesday and released on a $250,000 bond.

More than four dozen people have been charged in the nationwide scam, which is alleged to have placed students in top-tier schools such as Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, the University of Southern California, UCLA and the University of Texas.

Ths investigation into these sordid affairs took place over the course of about a year.

Loughlin has since deleted all her social media accounts and has not yet said anything about the scandal.

She really may end up in prison.

Lori Loughlin ARRESTED Over College Cheating Scandal

A number of wealthy individuals, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, were indicted as part of a massive college fraud scheme.

One day after that news broke, Lori was arrested on Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, former fans cannot help but notice certain parallels between Lori’s scheme and her role as Aunt Becky on Full House.

Lori loughlin image

Speaking to People, a representative from  the U.S. Attorneys Office Central District of California confirms that Lori has been arrested.

She remains in custody and is expected to make an appearance in court at 2pm (PST).

The 54-year-old actress was arrested following an overnight flight from Canada, where she had been filming.

She faces a felony charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

She also faces a charge of honest services mail fraud.

Olivia jade photo

Lori is one of dozens facing charges for what appears to have been a massive, nationwide scheme.

The schools involved range from USC to Yale to Princeton to Stanford to Georgetown.

Wealthy parents are accused of having paid, in amounts ranging from the tens of thousands to considerably greater sums, to guarantee their children’s college placement.

In some cases, these were payments to have someone else take an entrance exam.

Others were bribes for coaches to list students as having been recruited as athletes when they were not.

Part of the outrage over this is brought on by the thought of students who had applied and been denied because these slots went to students whose parents paid bribes.

Lori loughlin at the peoples choice awards

Lori is specifically accused of paying $500,000 for her daughter to be virtually placed on a university rowing team.

Her young adult daughter, Olivia Jade, is an Instagram influencer who has dabbled in acting.

Reportedly, Olivia posed on a rowing machine to help sell the claim that she was part of the team.

It is unclear how much she or any of the other children may have known of what their parents were doing to secure their future.

But Olivia has expressed a disinterest in college academics multiple times on social media.

Considering that her mother may go to prison over what she did for Olivia’s college career, those posts have not aged well.

Lori loughlin daughter

Speaking of things that have not aged well …

(No, this is not a knock on Lori, who remains beautiful on the outside)

… Lori’s role on Full House, which made her famous in the first place, is now coming back to haunt her during this scandal.

Notably, she was the voice of reason and honesty on multiple episodes in which Uncle Jesse tried to use shortcuts.

In one episode, written by someone who doesn’t know how SATs work, Jesse snuck a radio to DJ to try to help her cheat on her SAT exams.

It was aunt Becky who took the SAT answer sheet (which no proctor would ever have, let’s be real) to stop him from helping her.

Lori loughlin on full house

Another episode showed Jesse lying to an elite preschool to try to get his twins enrolled in the hopes that he would give them a head start at life.

It fell to Becky to talk him out of it.

In the episode, she delivered some very heartfelt lines about how the twins would go through life at their own pace, and didn’t need a dishonest boost.

It seems clear that speaking those lines had no lasting effect on Lori Loughlin — not when it came to her own child’s future.

Watch these clips for yourself. They juxtapose nicely with her current scandal, don’t you think?

William H. Macy Detailed College Search DAYS Before Felicity Huffman Arrest

On Tuesday, a number of wealthy individuals including CEOs and actors were arrested by the FBI over a massive college fraud scheme.

Felicity Huffman was one of those arrested, and is accused of paying a hefty bribe to get her eldest into college.

It turns out that, just days ago, her husband William H. Macy opened up about his daughter’s college search.

Varsity Blues was an FBI operation that resulted in arrests and a scandal that no one expected.

Clearly, William H. Macy didn’t expect to see his wife slapped in handcuffs … or he wouldn’t have spoken to Us Weekly just six days earlier.

“We talk showbiz,” he said. “My daughter, Sofia, the oldest, she’s in the tribe. She’s going to be an actor.”

“She goes to LACHSA,” he noted. “The arts high school here.”

“And we’re doing the college tour,” he continued. “And she’s looking at theater schools.”

“So yeah, we talk about it a lot,” he said about college.

In terms of how he and wife Felicity parent, William said: “We’re complimentary, really complimentary.”

“She’s a great mom,” he praised. “She’s kind of astounding.â€�

Sounds like the mother who would do anything — absolutely anything — for her children.

“I’m the luckiest guy on the planet,” he beamed.

Macy also noted that his daughters were “crazy for their mom.”

Back in January, William H. Macy talked to Parade about his 18-year-old daughter’s college search.

Macy announced: “[Sofia’s] going to go to college.”

“I’m the outlier in this thing,” he admitted.

“We’re right now in the thick of college application time,” he said. “Which is so stressful.”

That is a very stressful process!

Possibly a little less stressful if someone has paid $15,000 for a Florida Man to take a college entrance exam in your daughter’s stead.

“I am voting that once she gets accepted,” Macy confessed. “She maybe takes a year off.”

Most people cannot afford to do that — college costs enough on its own.

But when your parents are worth a combined $45 million according to some online estimates, you can afford to spend a year figuring things out.

“God doesn’t let you be 18 twice,” Macy stated. “I think this is an opportunity for her.”
