Lori Loughlin isolated by neighbors, believe college advisor tricked herPosted by Thomas Bush / August 27, 2019
Lori Loughlin, the former “Full House” star who is accused of bribing her children’s way into college, is finding herself socially isolated. According to a source, this is how things go in Bel Air––the invitations will stop flowing until Loughlin is exonerated, if that happens.
Loughlin, meanwhile, is claiming that she did not intentionally make bribes to get her children into USC. Instead, she claims that the college advisor she hired tricked her.
William Singer, owner of college admissions companies Key Worldwide Foundation and Edge College & Career Network, the alleged ringleader of the scam, has pled guilty to accepting bribes totaling $25 million. The scam worked like this: parents would pay Singer, and Singer would in turn render their child’s application much more likely to be accepted. He had people take admissions tests for students, ensuring perfect scores. He would get the students labeled disabled in some way. He would fake athletic credentials and bribe coaches (as was the case with Yale soccer coach who accepted a $400,000 bribe to let a non-soccer player in as an “athlete”). Bribes were often disguised as charitable donations, Lori Loughlin allegedly paid $500,000 for her two children to get into USC––under the guise that they were rowers. They were not rowers. It’s hard to imagine what she thought was happening with that $500,000 if it weren’t for bribes.
