More developments on the recent college admissions scandal are shocking the country. Many actors and actresses along with other people of money have been accused of bribing colleges so their kids have a better chance of getting in. People have paid others to take exams for their kids and have gone so far as to pay one guy off that will insure their child will be able to cheat on the exam.

Lori Loughlin, former Full House actress, was caught bribing colleges to get her two daughters into the University of Southern California(USC). Lori Loughlin played Auntie Becky on the hit television shows Full House and Fuller House, and is now being accused of bribing University of Southern California to get her daughters into their school. She gave about 1 million dollars total to USC per daughter when other most parents just pay 96 thousand per student attending. They are also taking spots away from students who have worked hard their whole lives and deserve to be in those schools.

Another college admission scandal popped up and it was about Felicity Huffman. She was accused of paying 15 thousand dollars to a firm that assured her that they would help her oldest daughter cheat on the college entrance exam.

March 12, both Loughlin and Huffman along with many others were charged by federal prosecutors. They were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest service fraud. Loughlin was released on a 1 million dollar bond, along with her husband, and she was also allowed to go back to Canada to finish her film projects. Huffman was released on a 250 thousand dollar bond.

The next day at 10:15 A.M. Huffman deleted all of her social media accounts just like Loughlin has done. She had been forced to delete it because after the college scandal broke out people started to mock her old tweet that stated, “What are your best hacks for the back-to-school season?”.

On March 14, Loughlin’s daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, announced they will not be going back to USC. The school has not made a decision on their enrollment but it has been stated that that is what the family will do. The people that have been claimed to have made the decision were the two girls themselves, because of the fear they would get viciously bullied.

It is official that Loughlin will not be returning to season five of Fuller House nor will she work with the Hallmark Channel anymore. Sephora has also announced that they are discontinuing all of Olivia Jade’s makeup products.

There is a little bit of irony in both situations. Lori Loughlin, in one episode of Full House, wanted to bribe the preschool to assure their twin boys would get in. Now for Felicity Huffman, she tweeted a while back: “What are your best hacks for the back-to-school season?” Her’s was apparently money.
