The U.S attorney in Boston said on Thursday; that former Edge of Night and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy charges in connection with the college admissions scandal at the University of Southern California.

The couple will plead guilty before a U.S. District Court Judge on a date to be set.  The pre-hearing will take place Friday at 11:30AM EST via video conference.

Loughlin and Giannulli have been accused of paying “bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their offspring designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC,” according to the indictment.

The couple were two of more than 30 parents in the country implicated in the admissions scandal, which included former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, who plead guilty for her wrong-doing last year and served a 14-day prison sentence.

In terms of what is next for the couple. according to Deadline, Loughlin’s plea agreement calls for two months in prison, a $150,000 fine and two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service.  Giannulli’s agreement calls for five months in prison, a $250,000 fine and two years of supervised release with 250 hours of community service.

In a statement U.S. Attorney Andrew E. Lelling said, “Under the plea agreements filed today, these defendants will serve prison terms reflecting their respective roles in a conspiracy to corrupt the college admissions process and which are consistent with prior sentences in this case. We will continue to pursue accountability for undermining the integrity of college admissions.”

So, what do you think of the Louglin and Giannulli’s guilty plea? What do you think of the prison time, fines, and service they will reportedly have to serve for their sentence in connection to this scandal? Is it appropriate for their crimes?  Comment below.

I hope these two do time, on arrogance and smugness alone. She has shown absolutely no remorse. And her kids, such narcissists and so entitled. She should be ashamed of herself and her children.

Maybe because it’s her private life. I was surprised though that this site did not report the death of her son.

I do hope she is feeling better.

No, they should be sentenced as though they came from no money. If they weren’t rich and not celebrities I’m sure it would have been much harsher sentence. 2 months is laughable.

If they weren’t rich, they probably would not be in the position they are right now. I don’t personally know many people who could make a $500K “donation” to get their children into college.

This is big news since it was said over and over again on the news that the couple was facing YEARS in prison. I guess it is true that money does talk when it comes to the justice system. If you shell out enough dough, all you’ll get is a slap on the wrist for crimes committed.

They should have gotten more time.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.
