Brandi Glanville's son gets into California university as she makes jab about admissions scandal


Brandi Glanville backtracked from a tweet about her son’s acceptance into USC Tuesday, which she used to taking a comedic crack at Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman over their convictions in the college admissions scandal.

The 48-year-old reality star initially announced that her oldest son Mason had been accepted into USC, saying, ‘Amazing news my baby got accepted to the University of Southern California and I didn’t even have to fake any rowing pictures or bribe anyone,’ adding emojis of a heart and hands in prayer.

She later clarified that Mason had been accepted to a university that’s located in the Southern California area, as opposed to USC specifically.

‘Should have proofread my tweet … he got accepted to a University **IN** Southern California. Will share the school at a later time. Sorry 4 the confusion,’ she wrote, with the hashtag, #ProudMom.’

Regarding her remarks about the college admissions scandal, Glanville said that she ‘was making a joke about the rowing team & bribes cuz my baby did it all on his own & I’m proud of him.’

After her initial tweet, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum was lauded by her one-time Bravo co-star Heather Dubrow, who responded, ‘Congrats!!! THAT IS AMAZING! Although you’d look good in orange.’

Some felt the tweet was a cheap shot that revealed a character flaw in Glanville, who shares sons Mason, 17, and Jake, 13, with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian.

‘And this is her problem…she makes light of other to make herself feel valid,’ one user wrote. ‘Great news for the child but once again the mother uses it as another opportunity to knock others that made one mistake…where as she has made hundreds in public.’

The scandal remains a hot topic amid the release of a Netflix docudrama titled Operation Varsity Blues; and the book Guilty Admissions: The Bribes, Favors, and Phonies Behind the College Cheating Scandal from author Nicole LaPorte.

In the scandal, which broke in 2019, Huffman, Loughlin and Loughlin’s designer husband Mossimo Giannulli were all convicted as result of the federal probe dubbed Operation Varsity Blues.
