While you may think Lori Loughlin is upset about what she and husband Mossimo Giannulli are facing for their alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal, that’s actually not her top concern. The two people who she’s looking out for the most are her two daughters: Isabella Rose Giannulli, 20, and Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19.
“Lori is mortified and gets the seriousness of [the scandal],” a source revealed to Us Weekly. “But her concern was for her daughters and [is] now, more so than ever. She is really less worried for [herself] and her husband and [is] really worried for her daughters’ future.”
Earlier this month, the Hallmark Channel actress, 54, and the fashion designer, 55, were indicted by the Department of Justice in connection to the nationwide scam along with about 50 others — including Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman. Their fellow celebs definitely have thoughts and have been voicing them.
Court documents accuse Lori and Mossimo of having “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
While Lori’s friends allegedly “want to distance themselves” from her, she is at least getting support from the Fuller House cast. Even though she reportedly won’t return for the fifth and final season, her costars said “family sticks together no matter what” at the 2019 Kids’ Choice Awards.
Lori and Mossimo were arrested — on March 13 and March 12, respectively — and both appeared before a judge before being released on $1 million bonds. Due to scheduling conflicts, their next court appearance has been rescheduled from March 29 until April 3.
For now both of their daughters are still enrolled at the University of Southern California while the school undergoes a “case-by-case review for current students and graduates that may be connected to the scheme alleged by the government,” according to Us Weekly. After that is completed, they “will make informed decisions” about the status of those enrolled.
