Lori Loughlin is very concerned about her upcoming trial in the college admissions scandal, despite a phony report claiming she’s “not sorry” and feels she did nothing wrong. The article is completely untrue. Gossip Cop looked into the matter and we can set the record straight.

An article in Life & Style alleges Loughlin is unfazed by the charges she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, face for their part in the college admissions cheating scandal. The spouses are accused of paying William “Rick” Singer $500,000 to falsify their daughters, Olivia and Isabella’s, high school records to help them get accepted into the University of Southern California. If convicted, they could face up to 20 years behind bars. Fellow actress Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty earlier this year for her part and recently began a 14-day prison sentence at a federal prison in Northern California.

According to this latest bogus report, Loughlin isn’t taking the charges seriously. A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Lori’s going about her daily routine. The way she sees it, why shouldn’t she?” The dubious source adds, “Lori feels terrible about the effect the scandal has had on her girls, but she doesn’t think she has any reason to be sorry. Like most celebs she makes the most of the perks that come with fame, and she’s not going to let what’s happened change her lifestyle.”

Those perks, according to the tabloid, are things like her membership to an exclusive country club, shopping, doing yoga and “even boarding a private plane.” The piece ends by saying Loughlin is “considering writing a memoir” and is “already planning her comeback.” It’s worth noting that two weeks ago, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, for also falsely claiming Loughlin was planning a book.

Everything the publication is alleging is in direct contrast to how Loughlin is really handling the stress of her upcoming trial. Simply going about her daily routine, including those perks of being wealthy, doesn’t indicate her mental state. Loughlin is, in fact, full of anxiety, according to Entertainment Tonight, which knows far more about celebrities than any tabloid.

The outlet noted that 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.” Still, Gossip Cop touched based with our own source close to the actress, who confirms Life & Style’s report is nonsense. The actress is taking her trial seriously and isn’t remorseless about it all.

Life & Style has been wrong in its past reporting on Loughlin and the scandal. Last month, the tabloid claimed Loughlin and Giannulli were renewing their vows before their trial. Gossip Cop debunked that ridiculous story by pointing out how committed they’ve remained throughout the ordeal. The spouses aren’t having another wedding ceremony to support each other. The outlet has shown to be very unreliable on this subject, and we will continue to correct these types of stories when needed.
