Fuller House & Desperate Housewives Stars Indicted in College Admissions Scam

According to TMZ, Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin have been charged in this bribery scam.

Admissions consultant William Rick Singer is accused of orchestrating the scheme, using a sham company called Edge College & Career Network to collect $25 million from parents looking to buy admission into prestige colleges for their children.

The coaches would allegedly arrange a fake profile that listed the prospective student as an athlete, and exam administrators would either hire proctors to take the test or correct the answers of a student.

To think, the only thing holding you back from going to an Ivy League institution or fulfilling your dream of being a college athlete was Photoshopping your face on LeBron James blocking Andre Iguodala.

Dozens of people are facing federal charges in connection with a nationwide college entrance exam cheating scandal involving several prominent colleges and former members of some of their athletic programs.


The indictment, unsealed in federal court in Boston on Tuesday, charges that the people named in the complaint paid bribes up to $6 million to get their children into elite colleges.

Some of the coaches at Wake Forest University, Georgetown and the University of Southern California were among those charged, according to The Associated Press.

Huffman and her spouse, for example, made a $15,000 charitable donation to Singer's foundation "to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter", the indictment states. Huffman's husband, actor William H. Macy, was not. 44 people have been charged so far, according to the report.

One user shared a throwback snip that showed Bob Saget and Dave Coulier in drag and said: 'Aunt Becky: "Hey USC, meet my two daughters who are prized recruits". Loughlin is famous as Aunt Becky on the beloved '90s sitcom Full House, and she's made numerous appearances on its Netflix revival series, Fuller House.

'Felicity huffman & these parents be like "let my daughter into your college; she's a superstar soccer player,"' mocked a different user. Giannulli's attorney said part of the reason they came to this agreement was with the hopes that Loughlin, also indicted in the case, would receive the same bond deal as well as be allowed to travel to Vancouver.
