Lori Loughlin’s Daughter: ‘I Don’t Really Care About School’

Actress Lori Loughlin, her husband and longtime fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli and their daughter Olivia Jade are at the center of an alleged college bribery scandal that was revealed on Tuesday.

"Officially a college student!" she captioned an Instagram photograph she posted in September, which showed her in her USC dorm room decorated with items she had ordered from online retailer Amazon.com Inc, which paid her for the post.

Thoughts?? Do U think Olivia Jade's partners should drop her??

Court document allege the couple paid $500,000 to have their two daughters labeled as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither is a rower.

Singer also arranged for parents to bribe university coaches to attest to a child being athletically gifted.

The 19-year-old has also cashed in on being student during her brief time at USC.

Giannulli, his wife actress Lori Loughlin and "Desperate Housewives" actress Felicity Huffman are the most well-known accused. A representative from the Federal Bureau of Investigation said that they did not use a tactical team for her arrest, but noted that "all Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are armed and may draw their weapons as a precautionary measured based on the circumstances during the execution of any warrant".

"We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations", the company said in a statement.

It is not known whether Olivia actually had knowledge of her mother's payments to get her admitted at the University of Southern California, but the lack of seriousness she approaches the college experience with is certainly not a good look.

It is said that the students involved did not know about their parents' collusion with the scam, and are not being prosecuted.

Some of the 33 parents charged with cheating to get their children into prestigious schools may have paid enough in bribes to cover the full cost of a college education and then some. "You look at this and you go, 'If you have the money to afford a tutor, you already have an advantage, '" she said.

Some spent between $200,000 and $6.5 million to guarantee admissions for their children, FBI Special Agent Joseph Bonavolonta said. Loughlin also stars in Hallmark's ongoing "Garage Sale Mysteries" movies and the series "When Calls the Heart".

People also cited cases like that of Kelley Williams-Bolar, a black mother in OH who went went to prison for lying about her residency so her daughters could attend school in a more well-regarded district. Former Pimco Chief Executive Douglas Hodge is due to be arraigned in federal court in Boston, officials said.

Giannulli appeared in court on his conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud charges Tuesday, while Loughlin was expected to surrender on her charges Wednesday.

Huffman appeared exhausted and emotional during her Wednesday court appearance.
