Lori Loughlin Pleads Not Guilty Following Indictment In College Bribery Scheme

Ex-Edge of Night, When Calls The Heart, and Fuller House star, Lori Loughlin entered a plea of not guilty along with her husband, fashion designer, Mossimo Giannulli to the federal government.  The couple are currently facing charges of conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering in the now infamous college admissions scandal.

Loughlin and Giannulli allegedly paid $500,000 to get their two daughters designated as recruits to the University of Southern California’s crew team, though neither girl participated in the sport, thereby facilitating their admission to the university.

The couple were part of a yearlong investigation and now scandal with 33 parents who have been arrested, including Desperate Housewives’ star, Felicity Huffman, who has already pleaded guilty.

According to Deadline, Lori and Mossimo are currently out on $1,000,000 bail and facing up to 20 years in prison.  In addition, the new conspiracy charge also carries a maximum 20 year sentence and major fines, if convicted.

Since Loughlin’s trouble came to light with the authorities, she has lost many of her acting gigs.  She was fired from all of her projects at the Hallmark Channel and is not expected to appear in Fuller House‘s final season.

In addition, Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart, took a brief hiatus following the revelation of Loughlin’s involvement in the scheme. The series will return with all new episodes on Sunday, May 5th, but Loughlin’s character will be edited out of the remaining episodes of the season.

jay bird, to quote the great singer Meatloaf, you took the words right out of my mouth. What does she think, she’s privileged or something. She needs to sit that privileged butt in a cell for awhile and think about just how privileged she is. Two true sayings came to mind when all of this started. Money is the root of all evil. And money can’t buy happiness. Thanks for listening

More and more, I am SO SICK of idiotic, clueless and bleeding-heart judges treating cowardly, spoiled and idiotic celebrities with kid gloves!!!!! For once…just once…I would like a tough-as-nails and hard-nosed judge to be the one to throw the book at that arrogant Lori Loughlin and that husband of hers. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!

What judges do this? I’m aware of one, the fool in the case of the monster kid driving sans license, killed several people, one was a Dad who was helping a complete stranger change a tire. That makes me sad and mad and again feel like I am a stranger in this world. But “bleeding heart” usually isn’t applied in these cases, more like corrupt and accepts cash. There were 33 parents i guess just this year, so it’s not just Hollywood either. It’s money. These parents are dumb and wrong on so many levels and kept at least 33 kids who did it right out of those Universities.
I had never noticed arrogance in Lori, i think that’s part of why we’re all even more mad or confused. She seemed like this good person who made nice movies and was Becky…. and you KNOW she has groups out there of insane fans saying she’s innocent.

I really want to believe that she isn’t guilty. This is going to be upsetting even more if there is evidence to convict her.

We appreciate her many contributions and wish her well on her next endeavors.”

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”
