One of the daughters is 19-year-old Olivia Jade who answered a question in a video on her Youtube channel about starting college.

"It's like the coolest thing getting DMs from girls like, 'I'm applying to college right now, like what did you do?'" Olivia shared. With work it's going to be hard, like my first week of school I'm leaving to go to Fiji for work, and then I'll be in NY a bunch this year for work, and traveling to a different country because I'm creating something with this country, and that's for work.

Giannulli also told Teen Vogue in September that she "found pretty much everything" for her room on Amazon.

"I feel like I would've had like weird FOMO [fear of missing out] not going to college if all my best friends from high school went and were like texting me telling me how it was - all the parties, the school work, everything and being like what am I missing out on?"

Despite Olivia's previous attempts to defend her initial controversial comments, she just recently made an appearance on the Zach Sang radio show on Friday where she once again expressed that her parents "made me go" to college. "My husband keeps saying, 'Lori you're not gonna see her so just be prepared'". "I'm really disappointed in myself". "I'm not like that, and I didn't mean it that way". "This palette has such an intense highlight I thought it would blind others to my privilege and toxicity". Representatives for Loughlin and Huffman did not immediately return requests for comment. Lori was shooting in Vancouver at the time.

Working with law enforcement agents, Singer allegedly later captured both Loughlin and Giannulli on tape acknowledging they'd paid Heinel to get their daughters into the school as crew athletes, even though the sisters don't actually row. Giannulli was arrested Tuesday morning, but Loughlin was not home at the time.

Giannulli appeared in federal court on Tuesday and was released after posting a $1 million bond.

According to CNN, Macy is not charged or named in court documents. She appeared in a Los Angeles federal court Tuesday looking visibly exhausted before posting $250,000 bail and surrendering her passport. Under the terms of her bond, Huffman also surrendered her passport.

Huffman and Giannulli are scheduled to reappear in court March 29 in Boston.

Olivia allegedly was admitted to USC through the scheme, however, she said in a YouTube video that she was most looking forward to "partying" at the school.

The scheme had two major pieces.

Parents paid Singer between $15,000 and $75,000 per test for someone else to take the SAT or ACT exams in place of their college-aged sons or daughters, according to the court papers.

Authorities say parents paid bribes to coaches to get their children athletic spots on teams regardless of their athletic ability or experience. The investigation is said to have launched ten months before the indictments and was allegedly called the code name "Operation Varsity Blues" by the feds.

Those arrested include two SAT/ACT administrators, one exam proctor, nine coaches at elite schools, one college administrator and 33 parents, according to Andrew Lelling, the U.S. attorney for MA.

"TODAY" posted the clip of the interview on its website hours after Loughlin was indicted along with 50 others in the college admissions scandal . Here's the not-so-secret way the superrich game college admissions. University coaches and exam administrators were also reportedly indicted, as well.

Also under arrest were several coaches at local universities in connection with the alleged $25 million scheme.

Other parents, authorities say, paid a cooperating witness to get their children to take college-admission exams in a "controlled" testing center where a person helped them cheat on the test.
