College Admissions Fraud

Lori Loughlin was in Vancouver filming one of her many Hallmark Channel projects. She's the biggest star and the face of that cable network. Her arrest was delayed because she had to fly down from Canada yesterday. During her arraignment, the judge wanted to confiscate her passport, as was done to Felicity Huffman, but he relented because she had so much Hallmark Channel work to do in Vancouver in the coming months.

This afternoon Hallmark Channel fired her. And one of her shows (next episode airing Sunday) was pulled from the schedule.

When she's ultimately punished, it shouldn't be an inconvenience. It should be a deterrence.

Oh, come on. The world needs more Instagram influencers.
Last night:

Me: I heard she is an influencer
Mrs: What is an influencer?
Me: ........ummmmm...I thought you would know what that means, so I just threw it out there....


Basically: Acquire large social media following (millions) and then get paid for product placement.

me too. I also didn't know what a Smollet was either. I did however know what JHD and Cal80 meant. The hilarious part of Olivia Jade was the shot of her in her 100% accoutered "dorm" using Amazon for college kids or whatever they call it. She placed really cute oversized initials of her nom de influence in her window "OJ" ...What a dumbo

Is there a new term for the opposite of an 'influencer'? That's me. Neither my kids nor my wife nor my friends listen to me. That's why I come here.

In addition to never having heard of Olivia Jade before this week and really thinking those "OJ" initials in the window were a poor taste homage to a murderer, I must admit I had never heard of "the Hallmark Channel" (much less any of its content) before reading this thread. I think ignorance really is bliss.

Poor Aunt Becky. I get the sense she pushed college on her kid "OJ" as a way to rein her in and keep her from becoming a full vapid Karadashian bimbii influencer. Or maybe not. Sorta difficult to tell what's going on.

Oh well, looks like a massive backfire...or does the notoriety propel Lil' OJ into a LA princess bimbii existence.
YMMV. Have a nice day. Enjoy the sunshine. Smoke two joints. That's what she said.

Hallmark channels have a bigger audience than ESPN.
This will cause a major face plant for Hallmark.
Could you imagine college football or college sports in general without ESPN?
For me Hallmark Channels was the recovery room following exposure to Fox News...

I'm sorry, 82grad did you say something? Oh well, couldn't be too important anyway.

Anyone seen the latest from Olivia Jade? What a big mouth. She says daddy faked his way through college. He took the money his parents gave him for school and used it to start Massimo. Well lucky him. What a great example to tell your kids and have them follow in your footsteps. BTW, to all tennis fans, I believe there is an ad for Massimo on the walls of the tennis court at Indian Wells. Got to be embarrassing to have that there this weekend.

No joke, the last time I saw a Massimo product was back in the late 80's and the last thing I ever wore from Massimo were some beach flip flops in the late 80's.

re: Aunt Becky...I won't spoil it for anyone but mostly it's a reference to cheesy 80s pop culture. I think Mossimo is like a goiter.

I assume that Jennifer Connelly employed nefarious means:
"Balancing work and school, she studied English for two years at Yale University in 1988 and 1989, before transferring to Stanford University in 1990 to study drama." Wikipedia



...but there is probably a jury instruction that provides for an absolute defense in her case.

I associate Mossimo with Miller's Outpost and Pac Sun mall stores. Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong brand. It was acceptable gear for middle schoolers in the 90s.

I grew up in San Francisco and hadn't really

Let me explain it to you.

Full House premiered in 1987, when I was in elementary school.

Its child stars were born in 1976, 1982 and 1986 (the Olson Twins).

Full House ended its run after 8 seasons in 1995.

But it endured a long afterlife, thanks to the popularity of the Olson Twins.

So you have many kids born in the early- to mid-1970s watching Full House (Young Gen Xers).


And many kids born in the mid-1980s watching Full House (Old Millennials)

And many kids born in the mid-1990s watching Full House (Young Millennials).

And even many kids born in the mid-2000s watching Full House (Generation Z).

This isn't like Beverly Hills, 90210 or The Partridge Family -- teen shows that are popular for one generation.




Here you have a show that is popular with parents and their kids. It's enduring, like Seinfeld and Friends.

So when Netflix decided to bring it back a few years ago, as "Fuller House," what happened? It was a pretty big hit.




How iconic is it?

Here's Bob Saget, age 62, a few months ago at his wedding with his new wife, who was 8 years old when Full House premiered.



Here's John Stamos, age 55, with his girlfriend/baby mama, who was 1 years old when Full House premiered. In fact, she's one month older than the Olson twins (the baby you see in the top photo).




To wrap things up, Full House was an iconic show to many generations. And without Lori Loughlin's involvement, this scandal wouldn't have grabbed as much attention as it did this week.

Bottom line of all of this is that the college advisors (helpers) have not been hurt by this whole thing. Their phones are ringing off the hook. Some are making up to $900/hour and the ages of the students is getting younger. Business has never been better. You have to be kidding me.
