Two of your favorite TV Moms are involved in what’s being called as the biggest college admissions scam ever. Felicity Huffman of Desperate Housewives, Lori Laughlin of Full House, and up to 50 others are accused of bribery to get their kids higher SAT scores, and admission into Ivy League schools.  A Sacramento native, William Rick Singer, 58, is allegedly the mastermind.  He pleaded guilty yesterday to several charges. 

There are reports of wealthy parents photo shopping their child’s face onto a photo playing a sport they had no experience with to get them a spot on an Ivy League soccer team. 

“This raises serious questions about generational elitism. It’s terrifying, unethical, and immoral.” -Darik

“This is not fair.  I keep thinking about the students that worked hard to earn these spots, but never had a chance because their parents didn’t have the money to buy in.” -Amanda
