COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL UPDATE
Sources tell Us Lori Loughlin’s marriage is under strain.
1. So-called college-admissions expert William “Rick” Singer is said to be the mastermind behind the scam, and could be sentenced to 65 years in prison. “He’s on lockdown, being prepped for trial,” says an insider. 2. Shortly after Loughlin turned herself in on March 13 for allegedly bribing her kids’ way into college, the Hallmark Channel severed ties with the actress, who’d starred in the series When Calls the Heart. Her character was written out of the sixth season, and she was similarly axed from Fuller House. 3. Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty for her part in the scandal, admitting to paying $15,000 to have answers on her daughter’s SAT test corrected. She faces up to four months in prison. “Felicity accepts responsibility,” says an insider. 4. YouTube star and influencer Olivia Jade (pictured doing a shoot promoting Amazon products in her USC dorm room) immediately lost her endorsement deals, including those with Sephora and Tresemmé, when the scandal hit. “She’s really concerned about how her future career will be affected by all of this,” a source told Us at the time.
