Yes, you’re probably sick to death of hearing anything remotely related to Hollywood elitists obviously thinking they’re privileged and above the law.
It seems like day after day there are dozens of celebrities condescending to the American people from up on their pedestal but then audaciously believe the rules don’t apply to them. One would think that even after their flaws were exposed they would be humbled into attempting to make a difference in their life for the better, but that’s not always the case.
And it certainly isn’t the case with Lori Loughlin because there’s proof she isn’t taking this college admissions scandal seriously at all.
It was the massive FBI probe that swept the nation which resulted in nearly 50 people being charged.
Loughlin is jobless now because Hallmark and Netflix’s “Fuller House” dropped her and will face serious prison time if convicted. The operative word there being “convicted,” because Loughlin reportedly – and sincerely believes – that her and husband Mossimo Giannulli “won’t be found guilty.”
A source close to Loughlin and Giannulli reports, “The more that [the attorneys] look at the alleged evidence against them, the better they feel about the case. Everyone is feeling more and more confident that this could end well for them.”
That same insider also claimed to speak with the family regularly and told People Magazine that “A trial drags things out and she would like to move forward, which she can’t do until it goes to trial. But still, she feels like she’s got a valid defense, and that when all the evidence comes out, that she won’t be found guilty.”
The fact is Loughlin and Giannulli are potentially facing up to fifty years in prison – likely the rest of their lives – and most people would be so devastated by this news.
Not Lori Loughlin apparently.
Despite the college admissions scandal hanging over their heads, Loughlin and Giannulli are “trying to keep things normal” by “celebrating Father’s Day as a family.”
An unnamed source told People Magazine,“It’s just a strange situation when you are used to working, and all you do instead is focus on court dates and your legal defense. It’s not the happiest situation.”
They also said, “Lori seems OK. She is a very positive person. Her life doesn’t seem as chaotic as when the college scandal first broke. They are spending the summer with friends and trying to enjoy it.”
Nobody should shame people for celebrating a holiday. That’s not the point. The point is this has been a residual compounding effect.
When Lori Loughlin left the federal courts in New York after she was charged, she posed for pictures from the paparazzi with a big smile on her face, took pictures with fans and signed autographs.
It was like she was proud of the circumstances she was in.
Felicity Huffman on the other hand accepted it immediately and pled guilty to her charges. The “Desperate Housewives” star will likely serve only a few months in prison on her sentencing date in September.
Loughlin and Giannulli went in the opposite direction and the federal prosecutors added money laundering on top of their mail fraud charge. If they admitted their guilt then the prosecutors and federal judge would have likely been lenient.
There’s no shame in celebrating Father’s Day like a family amid the crisis but maybe harp back on the publicity of the celebration.
