“Lori is a really great mom who is completely into her kids and family life,” the source says. “She lives and breathes for her husband and children. … Her intentions were pure.”
Indicted on March 12, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannuli were both arrested and subsequently released on a $1 million bond for her alleged role in the nationwide college admissions scam. According to the court documents, the couple agreed to pay bribes in an amount totaling $500,000 to have both their daughters, Bella (20) and Olivia Jade (19) designated as recruits to the USC crew team. Both daughters, however, did not participate in the crew at USC. After this incident, both daughters have opted not to return to USC in light of the scandal.
“In [Lori’s] mind, the end result made everything she had to do worth it,” the source tells Us. “And she really didn’t even see it as being a huge deal.”
Another insider revealed in the new issue of Us Weekly Loughlin, as well as Felicity Huffman, did not know that the scandal “would become so serious.”
“They haven’t fully grasped the extent of their alleged crimes or the possibility of prison time,” the insider said.
