Lori Loughlin may be ready to tell the story of her role in the college admissions scandal that has snared her, husband Mossimo Giannulli, Felicity Huffman and dozens of others.
Radar reports that Loughlin, who pleaded not guilty to shelling out $500K in a bid to scam her daughters’ way into University of Southern California, is eager to sell her story. (ICYMI, she and Giannulli allegedly had fixer William “Rick” Singer help get daughters Isabella, 21, and Olivia, 19, into USC as crew team recruits, even though neither of them played.)
“She’s talking to agents about turning her prison experience into a cash-grabbing book and movie,” one insider said. “They’ve assured her it will make millions.”
The 55-year-old will find out fate soon enough. Next up is a court date this Wednesday. The pair are facing up to 40 years behind bars. Huffman, who pleaded guilty in exchange for a lighter sentence, was sentenced to two weeks behind bars for the relatively smaller crime of paying $15K to pump up her daughter’s SAT scores.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Loughlin’s “anxiety is through the roof, she is terrified, and she's been consumed with trying to put on a happy face but it's not easy under the circumstances.”
The source continues: “Lori is sticking with her story that she and her husband were scammed by Rick Singer. She has claimed to friends that they always thought the money was going to a charity through the school. She says she doesn't feel for one minute they were breaking the law.”
