“Lori is taking Mossimo’s advice. She thinks she did nothing wrong,” a source tells Us Weekly on the “Hot Hollywood” podcast. “Her husband presented this to her like it wasn’t an illegal thing she was doing.” The Full House alum, 54, and Mossimo, 55, were taken into custody last month after they allegedly spent $500,000 to ensure their daughters Bella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19, admission into USC. The pair ultimately pleaded not guilty to the crimes.
Lori, according to the source, is trying to stay away from social media and all the people that are heavily criticizing her. “She’s not looking at the media reports which explains her lack of self-awareness,” the insider continues. “She’s not really reading what’s out there.”
The source also reveals that people close to the couple’s family are still “trying to get her to understand the implications are real.” “She didn’t think she was doing anything wrong,” the insider says, noting that Lori’s family “is really worried.” “People around her are telling her jail time looks real.”
Word that Lori may think she’s done nothing wrong makes sense, as we recently learned that the actress was “in denial” about going to jail before being slapped with additional charges. According to lawyer Neama Rahmani, the When Calls the Heart star and her husband could “spend years, if not decades, behind bars” if found guilty, which would of course leave their kids without their parents.
“[Lori’s] concern was for her daughters and [is] now, more so than ever,” another source recently revealed. “She is really less worried for [herself] and her husband and [is] really worried for her daughters’ future.”
The pair has not yet commented on the matter.
