Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman and Full House actress Lori Loughlin were two of fifty people indicted in a nationwide college entrance exam scandal.

In "Operation Varsity Blues," the FBI have evidence that the two celebrities, along with thirty-one other wealthy parents, paid millions in bribes to get their kids into colleges including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, USC, University of Texas, UCLA, USD, and Wake Forest. 

William Singer, founder of college prep business Key Worldwide Foundation, accepted over $25 million from parents "to guarantee their children's admission to elite schools." According to ABC News, Singer is expected to plead guilty to charges of racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice.

Court documents say Singer bribed coaches who would pretend applicants were part of their athletic teams. Loughlin paid Singer $500,000 for her two daughters, including YouTube star Olivia Jade, to be designated as college athletes on the USC crew team, though they did not ever participate, which guaranteed their admission. 

Huffman conspired with Singer to fake her daughters SAT exam, organizing for her own proctors so they could go in after the fact and change test answers, which gave her daughter a 400 point boost. She disguised the bribe as a $15,00 charitable donation for ""educational programs [for] disadvantaged youth."

Huffman was arrested this morning in her Los Angeles home. Loughlin is reportedly out of the country but her husband Mossimo Giannulli was also arrested earlier today. 

The scandal is the number one trending topic of conversation on Twitter, and the Desperate Housewives and Full House jokes are flowing aplenty:
