Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannuli pleaded not guilty to the things they’re accused of in Operation Varsity Blues. It was reported months ago that they thought they could pretend they didn’t know that the $500,000 they paid to some person who wasn’t USC was not going to USC–or some other bizarro excuse which would lead to them not knowing it was a bribe. Now we’ve come full-circle of that sentiment as it’s being reported that Lori and Mossimo believe that they will be “exonerated” at trial. But will she ever be exonerated for When Calls The Heart?
Each update we get on the extremely juicy Operation Varsity Blues scandal gives HBO more and more material for when they inevitably turn this into a miniseries. Most recently, documents were filed to have Lori Loughlin and Mossimo’s legal team taken off the case, due to a possible conflict of interest. Well, Olivia Jade’s parents don’t want to wait around for a new legal team, because they just want to get these “baseless” accusations over with. It’s summertime, and Lori’s got poolside margaritas to make!
Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s college admission scamming plan is truly playing out like a very special episode of Full House about peer pressure. Except in this case, college is the junior girl’s bathroom, the bribery is cigarettes, and everyone involved appears to be playing the part of Bad Girl Gia. And I mean everyone; according to a source that spoke with Us Weekly, Olivia Jade Giannulli knew her parents were bribing her way into college and didn’t care.
Even before the feds screamed, “Freeze, rich dirtbags!“, at her parents, anyone who followed Olivia Jade Giannulli knew she didn’t want to be a college student. She said wanted to go to USC for the same reason anyone with a thirst for a Solo cup filled with Malibu does: the parties. But when it came to the “student” part of being a college student, she wasn’t into it.
Olivia hasn’t officially been kicked out of USC; her academic status is currently under review while her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, face prison time and multiple charges for their role in the college admissions scandal. An extended, possibly-permanent hiatus from school sounds like Olivia’s dream, but according to one source that spoke to Us Weekly, she’s “begging” to go back.
Mossimo Reportedly Yelled At Olivia Jade’s High School Guidance Counselor After Being Questioned About Her “Rowing Credentials”
The Lori Laughlin and Mossimo Giannuli’s scandal just took another turn as Olivia Jade’s high school guidance counselor is reportedly getting called as a witness in their case (because you know, this mess is going to trial as of now since Aunt Becky and Mossimo made the genius move of pleading not guilty and think it’s they’re only chance of clearing their pristine reputations). Shit was already real, but now shit just really really really got real because of a high school guidance counselor getting involved. If the assistant principal gets called next, they are truly fucked!!!
Since being charged and arrested in Operation Varsity Blues– where Lori Loughlin and Mossimo allegedly paid $500,000 to get their daughters into USC by fraudulently claiming they were on a rowing team–the couple have rightfully been through it. Other parents, namely Felicity Huffman, seem to be already putting this behind them. We haven’t really heard anything since Felicity pled guilty to the charges and is awaiting sentencing. Meanwhile, Lori and Mossimo are pleading not guilty in vain, and have stories in the news every five minutes with a new source talking to People about something heroic or whatever that was really just PR.
Well, Lori and Mossimo are picking up their need for social approval and they are digging their own graves with it, because sources are telling CNN that they’re so interested in keeping a good public image the couple is already seeking out crisis management help.
