Felicity Huffman college cheating scandal

CELEBITCHYThe FBI busted up a ring of wealthy people and college admissions officers and coaches who conspired to get the wealthy peoples’ kids into elite schools when their subpar grades weren’t enough. It’s more or less becoming known as the Felicity Huffman college cheating scandal because Huffman was arrested for faking her daughter’s SAT scores (her husband, William H. Macy, was not named in the FBI indictment)

JEZEBELBut former Full House actress Lori Laughlin was also arrested after allegedly paying out around $500,000 in bribes so her Instagram influencer daughter Olivia Jade could get into USC under the guise of being on the crew team. I’m still not sure how you can fake being an athlete — especially when you have over a million Instagram followers who watch you not being an athlete — but it seems to have worked

THE BLASTHuffman’s bond has been set at $250,000, or approximately seventeen times what she paid someone to retake the SAT for her daughter

VOXIn lighter news, the live-action Aladdin trailer is out, and honestly I’m way more interested in the racial and gender and business politics and behind-the-scenes-y stuff that went into making and marketing the trailer than I ever will be in watching the trailer. I still haven’t! It probably took me more time to write this than it would have to just watch. But Robin Williams is magic and this remake is unnecessary
