(Newser) – Lori Loughlin's daughter wasn't exactly a babe in the woods when it came to the college admissions scandal, a source tells People. "She would have never gone along with it if she thought this would happen," the source says of Olivia Jade, whose USC admission allegedly cost her parents hundreds of thousands of dollars. "Her thing is that she trusted her parents." She's also "very angry" with them and "just wants to figure out how she can rebuild her brand," per the source. TMZ agrees she's upset with her parents—though she and mom Lori Loughlin were "all smiles" shopping in Beverly Hills on Friday—while a source tells Hollywood Life that Olivia Jade is "terrified" of having to testify in court.

On the harder news front, some of the 33 parents accused of paying bribes for their kids' college admissions are cooperating with prosecutors, while at least one couple plans to fight on, the LA Times reports. Among those cutting deals are attorney Gordon Caplan, who was charged with fraud and said he feels "remorse and shame ... more than I can convey." Frozen food entrepreneur Peter Jan Sartorio, water company executive Devin Sloane, and market expert Jane Buckingham are also among those cooperating with prosecutors. Bill McGlashan, a former top executive at TPG Capital, plans to fight in court. No word yet on how Loughlin or actress Felicity Huffman will respond. (See what they did in court this week.)
