For a handful C-list stars and their offspring, the college admissions bribery scandal is a nightmare from which they just can't awaken.
As you've likely heard by now, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman were among those ensnared by the FBI investigation dubbed Operation Varsity Blues.
Since then, the actresses' fates have diverged in a number of interesting ways.
Huffman expressed what seemed like genuine remorse and accepted a plea deal.
Loughlin -- who stands accused of much more egregious crimes -- opted not to accept a plea and will instead do battle with prosecutors in a proper trial.
As a result, legal experts predict that Loughlin will almost certainly go to prison.
And yet, insiders say the actress best known for portraying Aunt Becky on Full House is unfazed and remains convinced that she'll beat the case.
Here's hoping Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, inherited her mother's unflappable nature because there's reason to believe the influencer and aspiring cosmetics mogul is being investigated by the FBI.
Loughlin allegedly doled out bribes and conned admissions boards on behalf of both of her daughter so that they would be accepted to USC as members of the school's crew team.
(Even though neither of them had ever rowed crew.)
The Daily Mail is now reporting that one of Loughlin's daughters is under federal investigation.
Insiders claim the investigation was confirmed by letter the FBI sent to the admissions board at USC informing them that one of their students may soon face criminal charges.
It's currently unclear which daughter is being investigated, but many have assumed it's Olivia who might soon be in trouble, as she's been one of this scandal's most outspoken and high-profile figures from the beginning.
"It is a not-so-veiled threat," said one source who claims to have seen the letter.
"[The US Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts] is making it pretty clear that they have evidence that very strongly suggests she knew of the illegal plot."
Amazingly, the fact that her daughter might soon be brought up on charges was not enough to get Loughlin to accept a plea deal.
Olivia has already dropped out of USC, allegedly for fear of being bullied as a result of the scandal.
She has also lost endorsement deals with Sephora and several other cosmetics and beauty companies.
Now, it looks as though her situation is soon to go from bad to worse.
