Lori Loughlin Appears Stressed With Husband Mossimo Amid Scandal: Pics

Cloudy dispositions? Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, stepped out for the first time since their arrests in connection to a nationwide college admissions scandal.

The couple were spotted in Orange County, California, on Thursday, March 28, presumably visiting relatives and friends in the area. The 54-year-old actress wore a mint green cardigan, white T-shirt, jeans and sneakers with sunglasses and a messy updo. Giannulli, 55, sported a white button-down and black pants. The duo appeared solemn throughout their stay.

Loughlin and the fashion designer were among dozens — including Felicity Huffman — who were indicted in the alleged scam. The pair were arrested earlier this month for allegedly agreeing “to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.” The duo share daughters Bella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19.

As of March 22, the girls were still enrolled at the University of Southern California despite reports that they intended to drop out. “USC is conducting a case-by-case review for current students and graduates that may be connected to the scheme alleged by the government and will make informed decisions as those reviews are completed,” the college said in a statement to Us Weekly.

In the meantime, Olivia Jade is “not talking to her parents,” according to a source. “She is still very upset at her parents,” the insider added. Though the influencer’s friends have encouraged her “not to be mad at her parents since they were just trying to do the best they could for her,” she “doesn’t listen” and “feels she is the victim.”

Another source revealed that the YouTube star has been staying with her boyfriend, Jackson Guthy, in the wake of the ordeal. “Olivia hasn’t been out with friends,” the insider noted. “She is completely in hiding right now.”

Trouble Ahead

“Lori is mortified and gets the seriousness of [the scandal],” according to an insider. “But her concern was for her daughters and [is] now, more so than ever. She is really less worried for [herself] and her husband and [is] really worried for her daughters’ future.”


Not Forgiven?

Olivia Jade “blames her mom and dad for this scandal and for the downfall of her career,” a source told Us. “[She] was initially trying to shrug off the scandal as something that would pass after a week and she could go back to her life.”


Family Values

The source continued, “It’s absolutely shocking. … Nobody knew and nobody would expect this from [them]. They are good people and it’s very sad to hear this went on. It’s disappointing. There’s going to be backlash and people already want to distance themselves. The fact that this was the example and life lesson they taught their daughters is just very surprising, knowing who they are.”


Support System

Loughlin’s Full House costar Bob Saget stood by her after her arrest. “You love who you love in your life,” he told TMZ on Thursday. “I just love who I love.”


Mama Bear

The When Calls the Heart star “truly believed her heart was in the right place,” a source said, adding: “Her intentions were pure.”
