Now that they’re both out of jail, a source close to Lori Loughlin told E! News that she’s “highly happy” that her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, has rejoined her at home to celebrate Easter with her.
Lori Loughlin seems to appreciate getting a packed house once more.
Mossimo Giannulli, the actress’s husband, has been released from prison after serving a five-month term. Since serving time as part of the national college admissions fiasco, he and Lori have reunited. Due to their roles in the scheme to have their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, admitted into USC, both spouses were convicted.
Lori and her family were reunited with their family over the Easter weekend, according to a source close to her.
Last week, Mossimo’s 30-year-old uncle, Gianni, travelled to the federal prison facility near Santa Barbara, Calif., to pick him up. According to the source, Olivia and Bella wanted to go and agreed to join at the last minute. Before returning to L.A. and picking up his ankle monitor, they all stopped for a night on the lane.
His final release date is April 17, so he’ll be completing the rest of his sentence at home.
“Everyone is ecstatic that he’s been released and can finally start breathing again,” the source says. “Lori was particularly worried and worried when he was in jail. She is overjoyed to have him back in her life.”
According to the source, Mossimo’s family is relieved that he is safe and that they will be able to see him again “They are optimistic about the future and their ability to reclaim their lives. They are eager to move on and put this incident behind them.”
When Olivia Jade told her side of the storey on Red Table Talk in December 2020, she attempted to do just that. “You’re like the poster child of white privilege and you had no idea,” she said. The beauty influencer, who has since returned to YouTube to make vlogs, acknowledged she has “insane privilege.”
Lori, her mother, was released from prison on Dec. 28 after spending less than two months in prison for her crimes.
The US Attorney’s Office announced in May 2020 that the Full House alum will plead guilty to wire and postal fraud conspiracy. Mossimo pleaded guilty to one count of wire and mail fraud conspiracy, as well as one count of honest services wire and mail fraud.
Olivia has been more transparent about the scandal on TikTok since Lori’s publication, which was the inspiration for the Netflix documentary Operation Varsity Blues. The 21-year-old trolled a user who asked her about college, and later commented on how she was publicly shamed because of her parents’ beliefs.
“We were talking about being publicly shamed, and I was like, ‘Well, my case doesn’t even equate to yours,'” she says. In March 2021, Olivia posted on TikTok. “Then she looked at me and said, ‘Olivia, if I’m drowning in 60 feet of water or you’re drowning in 30, we’re both drowning.'”
Lori, meanwhile, has moved into a new house and is getting “situated and settled” now that she’s a free woman, according to a source close to her who talked to E! News last month. “She’s focusing on her new home and getting things done.”
