Move over, Joanne! Desperate Whitewife Felicity Huffman and Lori “Aunt Becky” Loughlin of Full House have become the latest faces for entitled rich White female scammers. But don’t forget about the other big-name bandits who are caught up in the mix. Right now, the 204-page federal indictment includes roughly 50 people who are facing charges from participating in a college admissions exam scandal.
College-counseling consultant William Singer facilitated fraud through a racketeering conspiracy that ranged from fabricated entrance-exam scores to false athletic accolades for admission to NCAA Division 1 schools. Hollywood celebrities and CEOs who took part in the scheme did so to secure placement for their children by paying up to $6.5 million in bribes.
FBI officials apprehended Felicity Huffman with their guns drawn on Tuesday. The Desperate Housewives star donated $15,000 to Singer’s charity to facilitate falsified SAT scores for her daughter, which gained her entry to USC. However, Lori Loughlin attemped to evade officers by leaving her residence before their arrival. She has since been detained in Los Angeles. The Full House actress is facing charges for shelling out $500,000 to pretend her daughter, Olivia Jade, was on the rowing team.
Lori’s participation has reminded fans of the 90s sitcom of an episode of the show. She and Uncle Jesse faced a moral dilemma centered around fabricating information to secure the admission of their twin boys to a prestigious school. In the episode called “Be True To Your Preschool”, Uncle Jesse is the one who forges the application and Aunt Becky ultimately has a change of heart, and comes forward to confess.
Tuesday afternoon, Intelligencer released a full list of the 50-some parties listed in the federal indictment. Notable entries include:
- Jane Buckingham, CEO of Trendera and author of The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life
- Robert Flaxman, CEO and founder of real estate firm, Crown Realty & Development
- Mossimo Giannulli, fashion designer

Actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for his role as King T’Challa in the box office smash “Black Panther” passed away from colon cancer Friday.
The actor was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016, but remained active in his career with much of his work being released post-diagnosis. A statement from his family confirmed that he continued to work despite his cancer progressing, befitting a man who brought America’s first Black superhero to the silver screen.
As the news of the actor’s death spread, many took to social media to share their condolences.
The tributes continue to flood in as news of his passing continues to ripple through. Read the official statement from his family below.
“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison
Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.
The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.
Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.
“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
