Simpson: American Crime Story) is set to pen the adaptation. No network is attached to the project yet, though. To refresh your memory: Huffman and Loughlin were among a number of parents accused...

    Last month, in the wake of the Felicity Huffman/Lori Loughlin/et al. college admissions scandal, I wrote a column about Americans' outdated obsession with so-called "elite" colleges and universities. Space restrictions prevented me from discussing another troublesome issue: the fraternity culture at many American universities. Several years ago, I read an article in Rolling Stone magazine, "Confessions of an Ivy League Frat Boy." The author, Andrew Lohse, is a former Dartmouth student. Lohse blew the whistle on truly repulsive hazing practices at Dartmouth -- and found himself expelled for his trouble, while his fraternity brothers escaped unscathed. His Rolling Stone interview...

    The Mediterranean house – which was the address for [Rick] Singer’s Key Worldwide Foundation – was listed for sale Feb. 20 at $2.599 million, nearly three weeks before his court appearance on Tuesday, March 12. Records show Singer paid $1.55 million for the Newport Beach home in 2012. Built in 2003, the 5,167-square-foot house sits on “one of the most sought after blocks” in Newport Heights, the listing description said, touting high ceilings, stone floors, a gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry. An office suite,  secluded patio and firepit also were highlighted, as were the master suite decks and “spa-like” bathroom...

    In one email conversation that was obtained by New York Magazine, [Rick] Singer [college admissions scandal ringleader] instructs an employee to submit Olivia’s application to the University of Southern California. Olivia was later cc’d on emails with her parents and CW-1 in which her mother asked for help with applications to other colleges — “I don’t want to call any attention to [Olivia] with our little friend [guidance counselor].” CW-1 “responded by directing an employee to submit the application on behalf of [Olivia Jade.]” So did she understand what was going on? She certainly would have known, at the very least, that...

    Prosecutors are “determined” to see that Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman receive jail time for their part in the elite college bribery case, according to a report. Deadline reported Wednesday that jail time for the actresses appears “more and more likely.” Sources told the Tinseltown-focused website that law enforcement officials have signaled that Loughlin and Huffman could serve between six months and just under two years behind bars. However, their level of cooperation with the investigation will ultimately dictate the length of their sentences and fines, Deadline’s source added. . . . The Hallmark Channel, where Loughlin starred...

    10:35 AM PT -- Well, prosecutors did exactly what we reported early Tuesday morning. Since Lori did not cop a plea, the U.S. Attorney went to a Federal Grand Jury to get an indictment, adding charges of money laundering. This now increases the amount of time Lori and her husband would get as a minimum recommended sentence. Specifically, the U.S. Attorney says, Lori, her husband and 14 others will now be charged with the additional crime of "conspiring to launder the bribes and other payment in furtherance of the fraud by funneling them through [Rick] Singer's purported charity and his...

    Felicity Huffman has agreed to plead guilty for her role in the college bribery scam. The actress is among 13 parents who on Monday agreed to admit to the charges. She was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud for paying someone to alter her daughter's SAT results to make sure they were high enough for her to gain admission to USC. Other parents, namely Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimmo Giannulli, are yet to make deals or enter pleas. The next step in Huffman's case is a sentencing hearing which is yet to be...
  • Lori Loughlin's Daughter Olivia Jade's Trademark Application Rejected Due to Poor Punctuation

    Lori Loughlin's daughter had her own issues with trademarking her own beauty brand, because of poor punctuation. According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Olivia Jade attempted to have "Oliva Jade Beauty" and her name trademarked, however, she was rejected because of her vague language and grammar mistakes. "The wording 'make up kits comprised of moisturizer, primer, concealer, foundation, make-up powder, make-up pencils, eye make-up, eyeshadow, eye liner, mascara, blush, highlighter, bronzer, make-up setting spray lipstick lip gloss, lip stains, make-up remover' in the amended identification of goods is indefinite and must be clarified because the nature of 'moisturizer'...

    Operation Varsity Blues, the federal investigation into wealthy people gaming the system by getting their children into prestigious colleges through bribes and falsified test scores, has sparked a lot of jokes and scuttlebutt given the famous names involved in the largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice. Lori Loughlin and her daughter, Olivia Jade, are perhaps the largest names involved in a scandal that saw Olivia Jade get into USC as a student athlete — a rower, to be specific — despite not actually being on the team or having any experience on boats beyond her...

    The massive college admissions scam - where rich and famous people in California are being charged with cheating and paying bribes to get their kids into top colleges - is only the tip of what is said to be a really dirty iceberg. And so far, President Trump is not being blamed for it by CNN. But the admissions scandal tells us a lot about what's wrong with some of today's "elite" parents - and their spoiled kids. Many wealthy moms, dads and partners think that unless their kids are accepted to a top school like Yale, Stanford or the...

    As the fallout from the nationwide elite college bribery scheme continues, the indicted Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and STX Entertainment co-founder Bill McGlashan have all been hit today in a multi-billion dollar lawsuit from one very angry mother. That’s “no less than $500,000,000,000” angry to be specific. “Joshua applied to some of the colleges where the cheating took place and did not get in,” says award winning former Oakland school teacher Jennifer Kay Toy of her 4.2 graduating son. “Joshua and I believed that he’d had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut...

    Long before she became infamous for her arrest as part of what prosecutors say was a scheme to make sure some of America’s richest kids entered some of America’s top colleges, actress Felicity Huffman was fighting educational equality. A brief video emerged on Twitter showing Huffman, who starred in ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” sporting a “Cool Mom” top posing with the number 10,400,650. “The number represents just one of the 130 million girls who don’t have access to an education. If these girls were a country, they would be the tenth largest in the world, approximately the size of the U.K....

    Saw it on Yahoo. Of course he denies getting special privileges for his daughter's admission. As I see it he's done so much for the university sports-wise his kids should be given Carte Blanche treatment. My only problem with Joe is that he didn't have to apply and receive Workmen's Comp for football injuries. He was a millionaire many times over at the time.

    Lori Loughlin‘s daughters are dropping out of the University of Southern California — because they’re afraid of being bullied over the massive college admissions scam that has left them feeling like “a mess,” a report said Thursday. Olivia Jade, 19, and her sister, 20-year-old Isabella Rose, have decided to withdraw from USC days after their parents, “Fuller House” star Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were charged for allegedly paying the girls’ way into the school, TMZ reported. One source told the gossip website the girls worry they’ll be “viciously bullied” if they return to school.

    Several Democratic donors were among those charged Tuesday in a federal crackdown on a nationwide fraudulent college admissions conspiracy. Most of the press reaction Tuesday centered on Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, two prominent Hollywood stars charged in the sting. Huffman, when not acting, is a generous donor to Democratic candidates. Huffman has donated thousands of dollars since 2016 to Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), according to the Federal Election Commission's site. Prior to that, she donated frequently to President Barack Obama's election efforts. She is far from the only Democratic donor on the list, some of whom have also...
  • How the feds cracked the college admissions scam

    The slew of criminal charges in the sweeping college cheating scam originated from an unrelated federal case in the Boston area — and a financial executive desperate for mercy, according to a new report. The feds were tipped off to what would be the biggest college admissions scheme ever prosecuted thanks to the businessman, who was under investigation in a securities fraud case, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday. In a bid for leniency, he told investigators that Rudolph “Rudy” Meredith, the head women’s soccer coach at Yale, solicited bribes from him in exchange for recommending his daughter for admission...
