Felicity Huffman And Lori Loughlin Indicted In College Admissions Bribery Case

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin have been charged with fraud over their alleged involvement in a nationwide college admissions cheating scam. According to court documents, the actresses paid to get their daughters into elite colleges. The feds showed up to Felicity Huffman's house at 6 AM with guns drawn and ordered her to come out and surrender. Felicity Huffman apparently made a charitable contribution of $15,000 to participate in the cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter. The claim is that her daughter was given twice the amount of time to take the SAT as other students and the paid proctor agreed to secretly correct her answers after the test. Her daughter got a 1420, which was approximately 400 points over her PSAT score. Lori Loughlin and her husband allegedly paid $500,000 to have their 2 daughters designated as recruits for the crew team at USC. She will turn herself in to federal authorities this morning. The FBI showed up at Lori Loughlin's door as well, but she was shooting in Vancouver and wasn't home. Her husband has already been arrested. Felicity Huffman's husband, Shameless star William H. Macy, hasn't been arrested, but is considered a witness in the case. 48 others have been charged in this massive bribery scam. Allegedly, some people paid as much as $6 million to get their kids into schools such as Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California.

Orlando Bloom Slammed For This Pet Parenting Move

Orlando Bloom has angered animal lovers in five seconds. All it took was one photo. The pictures that were shared showed Orlando Bloom carrying his dog in a bag.

Orlando Bloom was seriously photographed by the paparazzi riding around Los Angeles on his motorcycle with his toy poodle Mighty inside of a drawstring bag. I'm sorry, that's just so wrong on so many levels. How can you justify stuffing your dog in a bag?! See the photo below for yourself.
