It was recently reported that Lori Loughlin had hired a prison expert who could help her successfully transition from Aunt Becky to Cell Block Becky. A wise strategy. There are different rules on the inside. What is Lori wanted to get her hands on some anti-frizz serum? She needs to be taught how to do that. After all, the last time she tried to circumvent the system and trade money for illegally-obtained goods, she got busted. Sources recently told TMZ that Lori hasn’t hired any such prison coach, but Us Weekly is saying she did. Usually Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are united on all matters pertaining to their upcoming trial. However, the alleged prison coach is allegedly a whole other story.
Ever since Lori and Mossimo were arrested for allegedly paying $500,000 to Rick Singer to help get their daughters into USC on some phony rowing team credentials, they have both maintained they’re innocent of any wrongdoing, and that the only thing they’re guilty of is loving their daughters too much. Up until now, it’s almost like Lori and Mossimo are one super-parent that can hug their daughters with four arms and keep them warm from the heat of their two hearts. Except now there’s a crack, at least according to Us Weekly’s source. They claim that one of Lori’s lawyers urged her to hire the prison coach.
Lori’s lawyers are also Mossimo’s lawyers, so you would think that the prison coach conversation is one that everyone would have had all together while sipping lattes. But by specifically stating that just one of the lawyers suggested the prison coach, I’m going to wager Mossimo wasn’t in on that convo.
The result of which, according to the source, was that Mossimo “wasn’t happy.” But Lori might not care how Mossimo feels about it, because she’s looking out for Becky.
“Lori wants to be prepared for the worst outcome,” adds the insider, “but she also wants to demonstrate that she’s taking this very, very seriously.”
I know Lori’s motivation for allegedly hiring that prison coach was to prepare for the possibility of the big house, but what she has failed to consider is what a pissed-off partner in crime might do. I’m not saying Mossimo is so mad that Lori might have gone behind his back and hired a prison tutor that he might make a rash, revenge-y decision. But she might want to prepare herself for the possibility that one day in court, Mossimo will take the stand, point at Lori and yell: “Your honor, she totally said ‘Let’s fake some rowing pictures and commit admissions fraud.’ Also, she doesn’t even like John Stamos that much.”
