Operation Varsity Blues Updates: Lori Loughlin released on a $1 million bond



Actress Lori Loughlin was in federal court earlier today and was arraigned in Los Angeles on conspiracy charges stemming from the elite college entrance fraud scheme. She was released on a $1 million dollar bond and surrendered her passport with travel restrictions. TMZ also reported that Lori’s 19-year-old daughter and influencer Olivia Jade was on Rick Caruso’s (Chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees) yacht in the Bahamas with Caruso’s daughter, Gianna. She and several other friends were spending Spring Break in the Bahamas and both Gianna and Olivia have been friends for sometime.

Caruso says, “My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government's announcement yesterday. Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.” Hewlett Packard (HP) has also cut ties with Lori’s daughter and is expected to lose more endorsement deals.

And finally, the women on The View discussed this topic earlier this morning. Joy Behar and Meghan McCain got into a heated exchange when Behar brought up the “racist” history of “legacy” admissions policies at colleges and universities. McCain began to get defensive about her family name. The video of that full exchange behind the cut.
