    Loughlin is described as “a competitive parent that liked to show off”.

    Between her and her husband, I have no doubt that they will try a redemption come-back with some sort of media venue- like a series like (shudder) the Kardashians.

    They live for the publicity, the money, the connections with famous people.

    I mean it’s not like the’re going to move to an organic farm in Oregon and have the two Hollywood-raised daughters discussing vintage broccoli strains.

    If they can avoid prison, that is. But they’ll have to time this well. The issue is hot right now, but in 18 months no one will care and pop culture will be on to some other pseudo-celebrity issue.

    It will be interesting to see how she fairs. The problem that she faces as a model/influencer, is that she is totally replaceable. There are a thousand other young women that are lining up to take her place. Sure, these companies will have to do some rearranging and rebranding, but that isn't a big deal. Companies have to do that increasingly frequently anyway. The Loughlin/Mossimo/Olivia part of this story is getting probably more attention than the others, in part, because of how stupid it was. They had money and fame, Olivia had a good situation going as it was, had no interest in college (and no need), and yet, they did it anyway. It sounds like this wasn't about Olivia at all, but just about Mom and Dad wanting to have bragging rights to a kid at USC, AND to use her to get access to USC affiliated big-wigs.

    That is exactly correct. She had that wholesome persona that made her so successful. Now she has totally destroyed that. Honestly, I don't know if she can ever recover, as an actress, from this. I was always a big fan of hers, so this is all so disappointing to me.

    I don’t frequently like pleas, but in this case, I’m fine if Singer gets off with community service & some restrictive conditions (banned from any education related field?) for exposing this corruption. These parents took no persuading. They were actively looking for an illegal solution to a problem. Singer’s consulting company is one of thousands like it nationwide. I’m sure some of them are honest. The follow-the-money idea applies. The question is what consulting companies are strong competitors of Singer’s. I want all the companies/ consultants/ clients held fully accountable.

    Sounds like Felicity will come off far better than Lori.
    The press will be relentless on this family as their high-flying daughter’s vblogging presence makes it so easy to expose her as the careless spoiled child flying in the face of earnest students kids of lesser means and non-famous parents.

    It’s amazing she didn’t have enough social savy, nor did her parent’s - apparently, to reflect on the garish optics of this. I guess they were busy planning the spring break on a billionaire’s yacht.

    Well Lori and Mossimo: Your grab at MORE wealth, fame, and influence through your children has just exploded all over the media in a very ugly foul-smelling rotting mess.

    You are going to be dogged for years and years, even after the trials, the criminal disclosures, the IRS investigation.

    This is gonna BURN for a very long time.

    When I went to a state university,it cost 4,000 for my entire 4 year degree. My son's one mere semester at USC cost him 16,000. He couldn't even finish because of his disability and still is paying for it. Ridiculous!
