Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin Arrested in College Admissions Bribery Sting

Today has not been a great day for rich white ladies trying to bend the rules to their favor. Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were both caught in a college admissions bribery scheme that is off the rails insane and could land them in prison for a long time. It won’t, neither is likely to spend a single day in prison, but they could potentially face years.

Both actresses actions were a little different, so let me go over what happened. Let’s start with Huffman (and William H. Macy, who is mentioned but unindicted). What Felicity Huffman did was pay $15,000 to a fake charity in exchange for helping her daughter cheat on the SAT. They sent the girl to an SAT proctor who was in on the scheme, got her extra time with a fake disability, fed her answers and corrected wrong answers on her test after she handed it it in. Her score went up 400 points from the PSATs. It’s kind of boring, honestly, just run of the mill cheating.

Luckily, Lori Loughlin’s story is much more interesting. She and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, who was also arrested, paid half a million dollars to have their two daughters recruited by the USC crew team. That’s rowing. She pretended to be a coxswain, which is a real thing. They even staged photos of them on rowing machines to show the admissions board.

This was apparently pretty common, faking admissions on the basis of joining some team in a sport no one has ever heard of like crew or lacrosse or soccer.

In case you were worried, though, the Department of Justice wants to make sure you know that this is different from donating a building to a college, that’s still perfectly legal.

By the way, that’s how Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, got into Harvard; his dad donated $2.5 million to the school. This is entirely legal, by the way. So if you want to bribe your kid’s way into the Ivies, make sure you’re writing the bribe directly to the school; bribing an intermediary to cheat is still illegal. College admissions are tricky like that.

Coxswain. Still funny.

It Looks Like We All Owe Johnny Depp an Apology

The more information we get about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, the more it sounds like we all owe Johnny Depp an apology. It’s always hard to say anything definitive, but it’s looking much more like Johnny Depp was the victim of domestic abuse and Heard was the abuser, which fits with the fact that she was arrested for domestic abuse in a previous relationship and he’s never been accused of abuse by any partner other than Heard.

Here’s our basic timeline of events; Amber Heard was arrested for domestic abuse against Tasya van Ree, then she married Johnny Depp, then she took a shit in his bed, then she accused him of domestic violence during their divorce during which she asked for $50k a month alimony and sold photos allegedly showing her having been abused to People.

So why is this suddenly back in the news? Well, The Blast published a photo of Johnny Depp with a black eye, allegedly given to him by Heard.

And now that Twitter has caught wind of it, well, the people who cancelled him now have canceller’s remorse.

I’m not entirely sure Depp is entirely innocent here, he did take a swing at that location scout. But like I said before, if a human being takes a shit in your bed and all you do is throw your phone at them, that’s you showing an incredible amount of restraint.

But really, we all should have at least been wary of making the face of domestic violence victims someone with a documented history of committing domestic abuse.

Cyborg Senator Mitt Romney Blows out Birthday Candles Like a Lizard Person

Mitt Romney is a weird dude. I’m not just talking about the magic underwear and giving his kids names like “Tag” and “Sport” and “Dong”; he has this whole aww-shucks act going on that’s perfectly exemplified in this video of him blowing out birthday candles.

See, listen to that. “Oh my goodness,” “Look at that, holy cow.” he throws in a dad joke, going “What are you guys going to have?” It’s cute, and then… what the damn hell? He pulls off the candles one at a time and blows them out away from the cake. What kind of person does that?

This did not go unnoticed by Twitter.

This is 100%, true, by the way, Mitt Romney ironed his clothes after putting them on in a documentary about his run for the White House.

Some people have pointed out this is more hygienic, but that doesn’t make it acceptable.

Lori Loughlin Deletes All Social Media in Wake of Impending Arrest, Bribary Scheme

Lori Loughlin has gone radio silent.

And also Twitter silent.

And Instagram and Snapchat silent as well.

Lori Loughlin Image

The veteran actress, who will forever be known as Aunt Becky to fans of Full House and the reboot, Fuller House, is at the center of a major, nationwide bribary scheme.

Along with Felicity Huffman (and 48 others), Loughlin is accused of paying a substantial amount of money to fake her daughter's college application.

According to the United States Attorney in the District of Massachusetts, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team."

This, federal agents allege, "despite the fact that they did not participate in crew - thereby facilitating their admission to USC."

In Loughlin's case, the star supposedly posed her kids on rowing machines in order to pretend that they were members of their high school crew team.

Olivia Jade Photo

She then sent these photos to a middle man, along with the aforementioned giant sum of money, who had a connection at the University of Southern California.

This man and this connection proceeded to conspire on Loughlin's behalf, claiming her daughters were crew team members recruits and thereby putting them on a special list at the school -- where their low high school grades were ignored and they were granted admission to USC.

We're talking seriously shady, entitled stuff.

In the wake of this scandal, Loughlin has made her Twitter and Instagram accounts private.

Lori Loughlin, Daughter

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s L.A. Public Affairs specialist, Laura Eimiller, a warrant for Loughlin‘s arrest was served at her California residence on Tuesday, “but she was not there” and has not yet been taken into custody.

She does plan on surrending to authorities, however.

The actress is facing a felony charge for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. If convicted, she faces up to five years in prison.

(Huffman is also an alleged conspirator in the scheme and faces the same charges as Loughlin. She was taken into custody on Tuesday morning and is expected to make her initial court appearance this afternoon.)

Felicity Huffman and lori

Loughlin's kids - Bella Giannulli, 20, and Olivia Giannulli a.k.a. Olivia Jade, 19 — both currently attend the University of Southern California, their father’s alma mater.

Olivia is actually a social media star, with close to two million YouTube subscribers and 1.3 million Instagram followers.

She actually said last year that she doesn't even like college and only really wants to stay in school to party and attend sporting events.

"I want the experience of like game days, partying…I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know," Olivia said in a rather ironic video now making the round.

She then posted the mea culpa above - again, this was all long before the allegations came out surrounding just how and why she got accepted to USC - in which Olivia says:

"I said something super ignorant and stupid, basically. And it totally came across that I’m ungrateful for college — I’m going to a really nice school.

"And it just kind of made it seem like I don’t care, I just want to brush it off. I’m just gonna be successful at YouTube and not have to worry about school.

"I’m really disappointed in myself."

She is yet to comment on her mother's pending arrest or reported role in this ugly scam.

Brandi Glanville: Scheana Marie Talks MAJOR SH-T About Lisa Vanderpump!

Monday night's episode of Vanderpump Rules was all about bullying.

Katie Maloney accused James Kennedy of being a bully, and just about everyone pointed out that Katie has been a bully since Season 1.

Katie Maloney Pic

But after the show, it was Scheana Marie who found herself in the hot seat for talking trash.

However, we don't think anyone would accuse Scheana of bullying.

After all, she's allegedly been talking trash about her longtime boss, Lisa Vanderpump.

Scheana

Allow us to explain:

Scheana appeared on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live last night.

As always, Andy took some questions from viewers on Twitter, one of which came from ex-Beverly Hills Housewife Brandi Glanville, who has clashed with both Scheana and her boss Lisa over the years.

The question was obviously designed to stir up drama, and it succeeded in doing exactly that:

"I don’t hang out with Scheana but we are fine however if she has no issue with lvp why does she constantly need her podcast producer (mine also!) to edit all the shit she talks about LVP?" Brandi tweeted.

The intention of Glanville's tweet was to create problems between Scheana, but despite a moment of bug-eyed alarm, Scheana diffused the situation with ease.

"I don't talk any sh-t about Lisa on my podcast," she maintained.

Scheana Shay on Bravo

"There was I think a comment between Teddi [Mellencamp] and I that it was behind-the-scenes stuff, like fourth-wall breaking, that I was like, 'We should just keep that out.'"

On Twitter, the reality star/SUR hostess/singer doubled-down:

"I have never talked shi-t about LVP on my podcast and our mutual producer WILL confirm that," Scheana tweeted.

Indeed, shortly thereafter, podcast producer William Sterling chimed in:

Brandi Cleavage

"Last night something I said in passing about the production of @scheana's podcast was taken out of context to be used as a means of saying I edited her "shit talking", which isn't true," Sterling tweeted.

"Often we have to edit behind the scenes info of VPR so as not to give away spoilers."

So it sounds like the matter has been settled -- although, it's worth noting that Sterling might just know what side his bread is buttered on.

We're guessing Scheana's podcast does much bigger numbers than Brandi's.

William H. Macy Detailed College Search DAYS Before Felicity Huffman Arrest

On Tuesday, a number of wealthy individuals including CEOs and actors were arrested by the FBI over a massive college fraud scheme.

Felicity Huffman was one of those arrested, and is accused of paying a hefty bribe to get her eldest into college.

It turns out that, just days ago, her husband William H. Macy opened up about his daughter's college search.

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy Photo

Varsity Blues was an FBI operation that resulted in arrests and a scandal that no one expected.

Clearly, William H. Macy didn't expect to see his wife slapped in handcuffs ... or he wouldn't have spoken to Us Weekly just six days earlier.

"We talk showbiz," he said. "My daughter, Sofia, the oldest, she’s in the tribe. She’s going to be an actor."

"She goes to LACHSA," he noted. "The arts high school here."

"And we’re doing the college tour," he continued. "And she’s looking at theater schools."

William H. Macy Photo

"So yeah, we talk about it a lot," he said about college.

In terms of how he and wife Felicity parent, William said: "We’re complimentary, really complimentary."

"She’s a great mom," he praised. "She’s kind of astounding.”

Sounds like the mother who would do anything -- absolutely anything -- for her children.

"I’m the luckiest guy on the planet," he beamed.

Macy also noted that his daughters were "crazy for their mom."

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy

Back in January, William H. Macy talked to Parade about his 18-year-old daughter's college search.

Macy announced: "[Sofia’s] going to go to college."

"I’m the outlier in this thing," he admitted.

"We’re right now in the thick of college application time," he said. "Which is so stressful."

That is a very stressful process!

Possibly a little less stressful if someone has paid $15,000 for a Florida Man to take a college entrance exam in your daughter's stead.

Felicity Huffman Pic

"I am voting that once she gets accepted," Macy confessed. "She maybe takes a year off."

Most people cannot afford to do that -- college costs enough on its own.

But when your parents are worth a combined $45 million according to some online estimates, you can afford to spend a year figuring things out.

"God doesn’t let you be 18 twice," Macy stated. "I think this is an opportunity for her."

"But it’s just my opinion," he admitted. "And we’ll see what she wants to do, what Felicity thinks, and how the chips fall."

It may be that mom's opinion doesn't count so much as it would have in January. We'll see.

Felicity Huffman at SAG Awards 2017

"My daughter Georgia," Macy noted. "She’s interested in politics, political science, and pursuing that."

He then praised: "She’s in a very academic school and killing it."

Reports said that Felicity Huffman (allegedly!) began to make arrangements for someone to take Georgia's exam, too, but backed out of those.

Maybe she just decided that Georgia was better off taking her own test?

I know that a lot of young, driven people would be absolutely mortified at the thought of someone else taking their test.

Of course, we're sure that the entire family is reeling from this scandal, especially as they try to figure out the same thing as the rest of us:

Sahara Ray Pops a Titty at the Beach

Going into the water while wearing a bikini at the beach is always a dicey proposition, as you can see from these candids of Justin Bieber’s ex Sahara Ray. While at the beach in Mexico, where Sahara just thought she was going to enjoy a day of fun in the sun, a rogue wave came up and popped Sahara’s left titty out of her bikini.

That’s the kind of thing that can ruin a day at the beach for someone, but Sahara’s not about to let it slide. She just put that titty away and went back about her business as if it has never popped out of her top. What a woman! I mean, you would assume that your average woman might just let this be the damper on her day it seems to be, but not Sahara. She puts that titty away and soldiers on like a god damned champion.

I guess when you’ve got great titties, you can be comfortable in letting one slip every now and again. I like where that particular wave’s head was at though, and I sure am glad that it’s path collided with Sahara’s. It makes for one titty popping hell of a good time, if you ask me!

Ari Lezama Monokini for 138 Water

Costa Rican Model Ari Lezama was in Malibu yesterday shooting a promo for the launch of 138 Water on Amazon, a rather momentous occasion considering the brand has considerable clout amongst fans of sexy women posing suggestively with bottled water. Granted these photoshoots are never terribly clever and often all look identical, but you have to admire the tenacity this company has at associating their brand with sexy, scantily clad women like Ari Lezama.

The swimwear she’s sporting was referred to as a monokini, which is one of the stupidest terms I’ve ever heard. Isn’t a monokini the same thing as a one-piece swimsuit. Monokini is one of those insufferable portmanteaus that comes along when people are too lazy to refer to something by its given name and think that their cleverness somehow outweighs the facts. It’s words like monokini that have brought this society to the brink.

There’s no denying that Ari Lezama is hot in this one-piece bathing suit. How hot is she? Well, she’s so hot that she could actually get away with referring to this swimsuit as a monokini and I will resist the urge to institute my new policy of slapping anyone using that word across the face. That’s some god damned powerful hotness.

Mel Gibson and His Beard Are Back in Debut Trailer for ‘The Professor and the Madman’ (VIDEO)

 

When you hear that Mel Gibson is appearing in a film in 2019 titled The Professor and the Madman, and he’ll once again be sporting his now famous Rutherford B. Hayes beard, you would likely assume he’s playing the madman part of that equation. Not so. The Madman in this particular equation is an equally ridiculously bearded Sean Penn.

The film is an adaptation of the book “The Surgeon of Crowthorne,” which Gibson optioned back in the 90s with the intention of turning it into a film. Twenty-plus years later, Gibson is no longer behind the camera, but he is in front of it playing James Murray, the man tasked with compiling all of the words for the first Oxford English Dictionary. While compiling this tome, he receives thousands of entries from an imprisoned doctor named William Chester Minor (Penn), setting off an unlikely partnership that defined one of the most important books ever written.

I know it doesn’t sound terribly exciting and the teaming of Gibson and Penn well past their prime doesn’t quite have the same punch it might have had if Gibson had gotten this off the ground in the 90s, but it is a fascinating true story. It’s also hard to ignore that despite their public personas, Gibson and Penn are both good actors, so there may be some blood in this stone.

The Professor and the Madman does not yet have a North American release date, but it begins rolling out in several foreign markets this week.

Teen Mom 2 Recap: Baby Daddy Drama For Jenelle!

If you've been watching the current season of Teen Mom 2, then you're probably aware that the show doesn't quite know what to do with Jenelle Evans these days.

Jenelle's life is as dramatic as ever, but ever since her husband, David Eason, was fired from the show, it's been difficult for producers to capture the day-to-day insanity that is Evans' existence.

Fortunately, David is far from the first loser to get Jenelle pregnant.

The show dug deep into her past this week to unearth the deadbeat known as Andrew Lewis -- and the results were predictably awkward.

Take a look:
