January 1, John Stamos Drops Bombshell on Lauri Loughlin’s College Scandal Texts



John Stamos spills the beans on Lori Loughlin’s bizarre response to the explosive college admissions scandal that had Hollywood and parents across the nation reeling.

In his latest memoir “If You Would’ve Told Me,” the iconic “Full House” star reveals some eyebrow-raising text exchanges with Loughlin, his former on-screen wife, during the heat of the “Varsity Blues” fiasco, as covered by the New York Post.

Back in May 2020, Loughlin and her designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, faced the music, pleading guilty to a slew of conspiracy charges. Their crime? Doling out a whopping $500,000 to sneak their daughters, Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade, into the elite University of Southern California, disguising them as faux rowing athletes.

Stamos detailed the surreal morning when the news began to break.

“In March 2019, I get a strange text around 5:30 am from my good friend Roger Lodge,” the actor recounted.

Lodge inquired, “He asks if Lori is okay. I hit him back, ‘Why, what’s up?’”

To which Lodge dropped the bomb, “Something about a college scandal.”

Drawn into the drama, Stamos immediately delved into an online search but came up short. Concerned, he reached out to Loughlin. The twist? Her uncharacteristically cool demeanor on a call that might have been under surveillance.

Stamos writes about the unsettling sounds during the call, “‘I have seen some emails lately from lawyers to Moss, but I stay out of it.’ Before I can process her response, I notice an odd clicking sound on the phone line,” and Loughlin’s too-casual tone remarking, “‘Oh, they may be bugging my phone.’”

As news of the scandal spread like wildfire, Stamos swiftly pinged Loughlin. Sharing the text exchange, Stamos reveals, “I immediately text Lori, ‘Are you watching the news?’”

Referring to the breaking coverage of “the largest college admissions scandal ever handled by the Department of Justice,” and Loughlin’s surprisingly aloof query, “What channel?” Stamos shot back with an urgent tone, “‘EVERY CHANNEL!’”

The aftermath saw Loughlin serving a two-month prison stint, wrapping up in December 2020. Her husband, Giannulli, got a slightly tougher deal with five months behind bars, but was released early in April 2021, finishing his term under home confinement.

    the whole system is geared to cater to the <1%. i am sure these were not the first young people whose position at university was bought by wealthy, corrupt parents.

    The NCAA allows sissy men to compete against female athletes who have worked hard to be the best they could be to me is a bigger miscarriage of justice than what these parents did. Regardless of how one gets into college they still have to have passing numbers or their out.

    Lori Loughlin pretty much admitted her daughter was too stupid to get in, some sort if “disability”. Which makes me think the 500k might just buy a diploma, as well as a seat in the boat. And what a parent! So IF she did have some sort of disability, this mother was going to throw her to the wolves to pass four years in her own? Nope. She bought the whole four years.
