Actress Lori Loughlin reportedly hired an expert to teach her prison lingo and martial arts. But one expert says that’s a bad move.
What happened: Prison consultant John Fuller told Fox Business on Friday that the expert advice wasn’t good advice at all.
- Fuller: “Whoever gave her that advice — was clearly the worst advice that she’s received thus far.”
- Fuller: “If she thinks she’s going to go in there and bully other inmates or actually defend herself she’s wrong.”
- Fuller: “If [Loughlin] is with a prison consultant and she’s practicing fighting, then obviously they are preparing her to be in disrespectful situations and that doesn’t happen often in prison camps because people behave themselves down to that particular custody level.”
Flashback: News reports suggest that Loughlin has been speaking to experts about how to prepare for prison amid the college admissions scandal. She and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, could be team crew recruits for the University of Southern California.
- Per Radar Online: “Besides the physical training she’s getting lots of advice from prison professors on how to earn one’s keep behind bars. It’s a sure sign she knows deep down she’s facing an inevitable stretch and will need to be prepared.”
- Loughlin is reportedly worried about going to prison, Entertainment Tonight reports.
- “She is breaking down. She truly feels at her very worst. People are coming out in support of her lately but she is afraid to open up. She’s concerned if she talks to the wrong people that her opinions will get out and somehow affect the case.”
Huffman: Loughlin spoke with Felicity Huffman — who served less than 14 days in prison for her role in the scandal — about her prison sentence, the Deseret News reported.
- “She wants to debrief Felicity after jail to find out what it was like and what her advice would be,” the unnamed source told People magazine. “She feels like Felicity’s time in jail will be an indicator on her own time, and she’s extremely curious to know how it goes.”
