Lori Laughlin bribes USC

Aunt Becky Would Never Tell DJ To Bribe Her Way Into College

Bribery, lies, secrets, and an underground web of powerful individuals? Not something we thought we'd ever see Aunt Becky caught up in.


Receiving your college acceptance letter in the mail is supposed to be one of the most nerve-racking, yet exciting moments of your life. You've worked incredibly hard throughout high school, have made many sacrifices, pulled all-nighters, saved money, and are now ready to take that next big step in your academic career. But, what I told you there was an easier way to reach this higher level of learning.

No more stressing over whether or not your SAT scores are good enough, if you've devoted enough of your time to community service, or have joined as many extracurriculars as you possibly could - all you have to do is "donate" thousands of dollars to the school of your choice. Apparently, for the child stars of Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman, it really is that easy.

On March 12th, fifty wealthy US families were indicted on the grounds of bribery and cheating within the college entrance exams. The mastermind behind the scandal titled "Varsity Blues" is William Singer, a reputable college preparatory school counselor located in Los Angeles, California. In exchange for the money, Singer allegedly bribed college officials, coaches and college entrance exam administrators, who then helped students secure admissions not on their merits, but through fraud. Over the years, he managed to collect over $25 million in payments from parents who wanted their children accepted into the most elite colleges around the nation including Yale, Stanford, USC, Georgetown, Wake Forest, and UCLA.

Lori Laughlin (of Full House) and Mossimo Giannulli (creator of Mossimo at Target) paid a total of $500,000 dollars for both of their children, Olivia Jade & Isabella Giannulli, to attend one of California's most prestigious institutions, USC. The girls were "recruited" by the university's rowing team, despite having never rowed crew in their high school careers, and accepted under-the-table through athletic scholarships. Olivia Jade is the more well-known of the two girls, having built a name for herself on YouTube with videos incasing her beauty regimen, fashion tips, travel vlogs, and even her "authentic" life as a college student. She has even managed to land brand deals with Amazon showcasing her dorm room, Treseme, Sephora, Smile Direct Club, and has created her own clothing line with online fashion store, Princess Polly.

Despite having actually had the academic qualifications to attend USC, she still flaunted her status with "dorm room decorating" and "college week in my life" videos. Of course, many users on social media had a lot to say about this.

This entire situation just goes to show how flawed and easily manipulated the US academic system is. No matter how pristine your grades, SAT scores, participation in extracurriculars, attendance, or personality may seem to the College Board, mommy and daddy's money can buy you that degree.

Meanwhile, thousands of hopeful high school kids are busting a** for the chance to attend the university of their dreams - some even having trouble paying the $70 dollar application fee to apply. They're working extra hours after classes end, taking out loans, selling cars, and babysitting on the weekends to make ends meet, whereas Olivia Jade literally said in a video "I don't really care about school." Yeah, it shows.

As of now, her parents, along with dozens of other families, have been called into court to decide the fate of their futures. No word has been reported on whether Olivia or sister Isabella have been expelled from USC, but what we do know is that these families' reputations have been tarnished forever.

There's A Perfect Luke Combs Song For Every Situation

If you're going through ANY kind of situation, Luke probably has a song for it.


Saying that I'm a Luke Combs-lover would be an understatement. I've seen him in concert almost more times to count on two hands, I've met him, I have his autograph... I'm a little obsessed. Knowing every lyric to every song of his is definitely a talent. He is an incredible artist and has gotten me through every tough time I've ever been through.

1. "One Number Away"

If you have an ex who you really just want to pick up the phone and call sometimes, then this song is definitely for you. It has such a strong meaning explaining that if you're just lonely and missing someone that you probably shouldn't, they're only one number away..

2. "When It Rains It Pours"

Having a bunch of bad crap happen all at once is awful, but then again, it sometimes works out for the best. If you've ever had a bad day or week where it just seems that one bad thing is happening after another, then this is definitely a jam for you.

3. "This Ones For You"

If you have that certain person or group of people that really have always been there for you and helped shape you into the person that you are today and you really feel like you owe them something, this is the perfect song that will really put into words how you're feeling!

4. "Be Careful What You Wish For"

Sometimes we take what we have for granted, and we don't realize what we have or how good we have it until its gone. Most could say they've been in this situation once or twice or at least know someone that has. If so, I highly recommend listening to this gem by Luke!

5. "Must've Never Met You"

We have all had that one person in our lives that we have ended things with and we have all of these people trying to be positive saying, "Oh, it gets better," or "The grass is greener on the other side." Sometimes that can be hard for us to believe. This is definitely a super meaningful song especially if you've ever been in a situation like that.

6. "She Got The Best Of Me"

If you have ever been with someone who truly has got the best of you, and when it's over you kinda just feel like there's nothing left of you, then you DEFINITELY need to hear this song!

There are so many more Luke Combs songs that have such deep meanings and backgrounds that could fit the perfect situation for you. Luke really is such a great artist with the best intentions for his fanbase, The Bootleggers. Go check him out, I promise you won't regret it!

7 Things We Should be Talking About Instead of James Charles

Not to sound like Shane Dawson, but did the government put them up to this publicity stunt?


If you're an avid YouTube watcher such as myself, I'm sure you're fully aware of the drama between James Charles and Tati. If you're not, it's really okay, and I'm super impressed with your ability to NOT become wrapped up in trending drama and gossip. Unfortunately, this argument that is BLOWING UP social media could not have come at a more inconvenient time. Young people are so distracted by this sugar fluff honey bear scandal that they aren't talking about real news that actually matters. I mean think about it, what other trending topic surfaced at the same time as this one? That's right-ABORTION! Our nation's most controversial topic that literally has to do with life and death is being overpowered by a conversation about sponsorships and apology videos. I may have been watching to many of Shane Dawson's conspiracy theories lately, but doesn't it seem like the populace should be talking about more pressing topics? Is this all a publicity stunt to divert our attention away from subjects that matter-such as the laws that literally weave the fabric of our nation? Not to be dramatic or anything, but I can think of 7 things off the top of my head that I'd rather hear people talk about than James Charles.

1. The abortion bills

I'm not one to encourage political arguments, but I'd much rather consider a well-thought out conversation about things that are changing our nation's history and possibly reversing Supreme Court decisions than millionaires with makeup. Women are being robbed of a life-altering choice and the nation is more worried about the "tea" about James and Tati? I don't think so.

2. India's water crisis

Because of drought and serious climate change, villages in Delhi, India don't see water for 10 days at a time. They need it for drinking, bathing, cooking, cleaning, and washing, so the few jugs they can fill up when a water truck comes has to be rationed over more than a week. Can you imagine using only one jug of water for 10 days? James Charles can save his ass and use his fortune to donate some water to India.

3. Climate change, and people not believing in it

More than one-eighth of ALL of Earth's species are at risk of extinction. Over a million animals, plants, corals, and insects are on that list. President Trump and his administration are not prioritzing the environment or the obvious effects of climate change-such as the California wildfires which he claimed started because the mountains "just need more raking and cleaning". Let's talk about ways we can be more sustainable in our everyday energy use instead of using technology and our own energy to talk shit online!

4. Bill Nye's inspiring comeback

If Bill Nye has to come so far out of retirement from the point we thought he was dead just to tell us we're f*cking up our planet, we must really be f*cking up our planet.

5. An extinct species of bird came back from the dead

Okay so we're talking about makeup moguls more than a literal LIVING ZOMBIE? The white-throated rail quite literally evolved and re-populated the island it once left behind. Science is crazy.

6. Taiwan was the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage

We love a good leader. Especially a ballsy one who gives people the rights they deserve despite an entire, large continent around them disagreeing.

7. Anything else...at all

Talk to me about how paper is made or how our bodies break down enzymes or some shit. Let's watch paint dry and listen to classical music. All of these options bode a better result for our mental health as well as our society.

It infuriated me that shootings in schools close to home and terrorist attacks all across the world are more expected to pop up in the news than a teenage millionaire losing fans due to inappropriate behavior. What we expect from our media is incredibly reflective of our society, and I'm sad to say it's pretty embarrassing that the masses, including myself, know more about James Charles's career than the 2020 election or the explosions that injured tourists in Egypt.
