If you thought that the sentencing of these two would be the absolute last thing you’d hear about them for a long time, think again. Hot on the heels of yesterday’s news that Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were sentenced to prison (2 months for her and 5 months for him) after admitted wrongdoing, sources tell Us Weekly that she refuses to accept the full and complete blame for paying $500,000 to fraudulently get her daughters into USC through the rowing team. And while many are against Lori and Mossimo, she is getting some love from DJ Tanner herself Candace Cameron Bure.
You really can’t keep a good (Aunt) Becky down. After learning news of her fate, via Zoom, from Judge Nathaniel Gordon, sources say Lori still believes that she’s the one who was played:
“Lori would never enter into criminal activity knowingly,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly. “She really believed that they were making legit donations, especially since USC took the money.”
Loughlin places blame on the man who allegedly organized the scheme. “Rick Singer came highly recommended to them, and they believed that his organization was legitimate,” the source says. “They had no idea that he was a con man.”
I don’t know maybe she’s right. Calling bribes “donations” has always worked for me. Well, regardless of what you think about these two, the ruling is in place and we can all move on…right? HA! Not so fast, we must know what everybody else in Hollywood thinks of this horrible injustice!
And if you’re like me, you’ve been sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for the day when one of Lori’s Full House co-stars would FINALLY speak up (okay, John Stamos air-kissed out some sweet nothings last year, but I’m talking about a co-star who might actually have something to say).
We all know that the Olsen Twins socially distanced themselves from the show years before it was cool. But what about DJ Tanner? Candace, sort of came to Lori’s defense on Instagram when a commenter, posting on Entertainment Tonight’s page, called out the gentle wrist-slap that Lori and Mossimo got. Candace replied with a simple, understated frowny face emoji. Annnnd the real judgment was cast:
That’s it. Sure, she could’ve been sighing against that comment, or she could’ve been sighing like, “sigh, I agree, but I can’t say it in words of else Aunty Becky will scream the skin out of my ears,” or she could’ve done that mom thing where she was commenting on the wrong post and meant to sigh under a post that reminded her that she’s related to Kirk Cameron. But well, that’s that with the Lorissimo saga (cut to the endless stories about their prison book deals in 3…2…).
