We all know actress Lori Loughlin mainly for her role as Rebecca Donaldson-Katsopolis on the ABC tv show Full house. The first episode aired in 1988 and the last one in 1995. We the fans were happy when there was a sequel on Netflix called “Fuller House” that lasted for three years. Lori’s career in Hollywood doesn’t stop there. We have seen her in lots of other movies and television series. The first 90210 Beverly hills fans must have been thrilled when the show was brought back to life as “90210” in 2008. We all loved Debbie (Annie and Dixon’s mum) and she sure was essential to the show. However, those days are gone and you will be in shock when we tell you where Lori is right now.

We Got A Full House!

Just one year after, she would marry the designer Mossimo Giannulli (the creator of Mossimo clothing line). They met in 1995 and had two daughters together, Isabella and Olivia.
What A Mother Wouldn’t Do For Their Children
Children are the most precious thing parents have. Some would say they would kill, die, or do whatever for them to be happy or have a good and comfortable life. For this reason, one of the hardest moments for parents, are sending their children off to college. It is the transition of becoming independent and responsible for one’s life and choices. But it is part of life and no one can do anything about it. Given that there is nothing to do about it, parents, of course, are going to want their kids to go to the best universities that provide the best education.
And So The Scandal Begins

Wouldnt you do anything to avoid your children’s disappointment and despair? Well, keep reading to find out who would and how.
Money Can Buy Many Things, Freedom May Be One Of Them?
As it turns out, both daughters of Lori were supposed to get into the University of Southern California. Their parents made a very generous donation of $500.000 to the admissions committee, and by donation, we mean alleged bribery so that their daughters would be accepted and join the women’s rowing team. On March 13, 2019, the couple was apprehended by the federal authorities in Los Angeles. They were released on bail of $1 million.
The Scandal Is Not Over Yet
Shortly after the couple was sued by Stanford University graduates who declare that their degrees and education had been underrated because of the prestigious university’s association with the case. Besides, money laundering was added to the list of crimes committed by the couple. If they would have gone to trial, they could have faced up to 20 years in prison, but this is not what happened.
Lauri has been sentenced to two months in prison. Also, she will be supervised for two years during which she will have to fo 100 hours of community service and pay $150.000. Lori was more of an accomplice rather than the plotting brain. Her husband was, and as a result, he got sentenced to 5 months in prison. Meanwhile, their daughters are still enrolled in the university but they have lost many of the privileges they had before.
