What else is there to the story of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli? They’ve done their time after pleading guilty in connection to getting their daughters into the University of Southern California (he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and one count of honest services wire and mail fraud; she to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud). He’s finishing up his community service. Until they land the inevitable mea culpa reentry into society that is a magazine tell-all, there’s little to follow with these two.
But just, you know, to check in on our old friends, how are they doing? A source for People told the magazine that “Lori still hopes she can get back to acting at some point.” And for his part, “Mossimo can’t wait to play golf. They are also hoping to take a trip later this year.”
It’s time to rebuild, recover, and get out there on the links and just be. There is nothing so open and airy as a solid 18 holes walking, and what better way to get back one’s sense of self? Out there at the country club, one doesn’t have to worry about how the media portrays you or the mess behind you. It’s just you, the blue sky above, the spongy grass beneath, and a hole somewhere in the middle distance.
I don’t think anyone has ever said this before, but golf is a lot like life. It’s going to cost you a pretty penny to do it, and there are traps everywhere. One wrong move and you’re irrevocably, unavoidably, terribly caught in them. But with enough perseverance and some skill, you’ll get out eventually, and anyway, such suffering only makes you better for the next round. It makes the game more interesting! Also as in life, sometimes you have to wear a funny little outfit for reasons even you might not really understand.
So golf, traveling, getting back to work. You know, the stars, even the ones who defraud university systems to gild the lily a bit, privilege-wise, are just like us.
