After weeks of talk regarding their involvement in the college admissions bribery scandal, it is finally time for actresses such as Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin to finally face the music…in a court room.

On Wednesday (April 3,) both actresses headed to federal court in Boston to appear before a judge on felony charges stemming from accusations that they bribed and cheated in an attempt to get their children into prestigious colleges. They are just two of nearly 36 parents that are charged in the case.

Just the day before, Loughlin was seen interacting with fans, singing autographs and taking pictures outside the hotel in which she was staying, according to People magazine.

Before this, Loughlin and her family had been laying low at their California estate, according to sources.

“Lori has always been a no-nonsense, seemingly together woman who knows what she wants and goes for it with zest,” a source tells the magazine. “She exudes both confidence and folksy charm at the same time. This issue is shocking and greatly saddens many people. I’ve heard she is devastated, and the whole family wants to hide from the world.”

It certainly doesn’t help that, according to sources, even Loughlin’s friends have begun to distance themselves from the family.

“Lori and (her husband) Mossimo are finding out quickly who their real friends are,” the source said. “It’s not like they are the victims of a crime. They are the crime. Many of their friends don’t want to be associated with them right now. Their friends are shocked at the allegations.”
