Lori Loughlin and her smarmy husband Mossimo Giannulli (along with Felicity Huffman) dominated headlines for a while after their involvement in the Operation Varsity Blues college admissions scandal was uncovered, their case progressed, and they served their subsequent time in the clink. During their downfall, Lori took every opportunity to show the public that she’s whiny, entitled, and oblivious, which is probably why Aunt Becky on Full House/Fuller House was her defining role. You would think that someone with notoriety and more money than sense who tried and very publicly failed to pull off a scam so privileged that it basically united a large portion of the country in muttering “aw hell naw” would just cry into their stacks of cash and go away forever, but not Lori–she’s a persistent “eternal optimist,” so she recently stepped out to grace her first red carpet since the college admissions scandal.
Famed actress (HA!) and college enthusiast Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are in the news again for their involvement in a mysterious robbery. No, Lori hasn’t stolen another student’s college seat for one of her bright children. This time, she’s the victim! I mean last time she was too, but in this case she actually is. Lori better crack out her detective skills from the Garage Sale Mysteries if she wants to solve this case!
After taking a plea deal and serving their sentences for scamming their daughters’ ways into USC, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have celebrated their freedom by buying a multi-million-dollar vacation home in the California desert. Maybe Aunt Becky and Mossimo feel bad about their daughters, Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli, taking spots away from people who really deserve to be at USC and will turn their newest mansion into an all-expenses-paid college for low-income students? HA!
Lori Loughlin managed to go her whole prison stint without getting papped in the yard, unlike fellow rich-schemer, Felicity Huffman. Both participated in the College Admissions Scandal, which rounded up rich folk for buying their kids’ ways into prestigious universities. Lori finally took a plea deal and pleaded guilty, getting two months in prison, while her husband, Mossimo Giannulli got five months and will be out next month. Lori was released back in December and she’s been low-key since. Well no longer! Lori finally got around to calling the paps. I mean, the paps finally caught up to Lori and she made the most out of that pap stroll by wearing a sweater in varsity blue while doing charity work.
Please hold some space in your heart today for Olivia Jade. The official trailer for Netflix’s hybrid documentary Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admission Scandal is out, forcing Olivia to once again disable the comments on her Instagram page. But that’s not the worst of it. Not only did she not get a part in the doc, but this doc is also not a Hallmark movie called Stop Ruining My Life Mom!: The Olivia Jade Story starring Olivia Jade as herself. Instead, the movie features recreations of the conversations captured by the FBI between Rick Singer, played here by Matthew Modine, and the rich parents who partnered with him to get their kids into elite colleges and also USC. That means whoever is going to be playing the voice of Felicity Huffman going “ruh roh” is going to be the real star of the show (fingers crossed), and from the looks of it, Olivia’s mom and dad, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, have been relegated to the background.
Deadline says that a documentary about the College Admissions Scandal that got Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin, and Mossimo Giannulli locked up is coming to Netflix. The scandal saw a bunch of rich people getting exposed as schemers who paid the College Admissions Scandal ringleader, Rick Singer, to get their children into elite universities. It even interrupted Olivia Jade‘s YouTuber career! Felicity and Lori are already out of prison after serving their sentences, but Mossimo is still suffering in prison and isn’t due to be released until April. But even though the College Admissions Scandal hasn’t wrapped up yet, Netflix has already announced that it will release a documentary from the same people who made Tiger King and Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. Wow, these people are professionals at documentaries on absolute fuckery! What a niche.
