Jennifer Kay Toy, a former California teacher, claims in her class action suit that her only child, Joshua, applied to some of the prestigious colleges named in the scandal but was rejected because of the alleged bribes of other parents.

We're a week into college admissions scam headlines and, thanks to the involvement of Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, it's still the biggest topic in Hollywood. Huffman, Loughlin and Giannulli have not commented on the allegations.

According to court records, Loughlin and her husband, J. Mossimo Giannulli, the creator of clothing brand Mossimo, "agreed to pay bribes totalling 500 000 dollars in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team" even though they did not participate in crew. Just this past week Huffman was arrested without incident and appeared in court on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in connection with the scandal.

"One can help your children in this business, and the nepotism works, and I have no problems with it", Macy said, predicated on the idea that his daughters would go into acting. It's a great way to make a living.

The latest star to chime in on all the action was Julia Roberts, who was asked about the situation while doing worldwide press for "Ben Is Back", in which she plays mother to a son struggling with addiction.

The ICC is meant to investigate crimes against humanity when the government in question is unable or unwilling to do so. Bolton was the architect of a hostile campaign against the ICC in the early 2000s under the George W.

Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman may now find themselves among the list of celebs who can't stand Julia Roberts.

And in an interview with Men's Journal published last month, Macy said the best advice he had ever received was "Never lie".

Huffman has deleted her social media accounts in the wake of the scandal, and is next due in court in Boston on March 29. "Lies cost you a lot, and they're never worth what they cost", the Shameless actor explained to the publication.

Huffman, on the other hand, reportedly paid $15,000 to have someone else take her oldest daughter's SAT scores.
