Now that both Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have finished their respective prison sentences for their roles in the college admissions scandal, they are hoping to make a major move in an attempt to save their marriage.
A source told US Weekly that Loughlin and Giannulli want to leave Los Angeles and buy a home in Idaho so they can get away from everything and “work on their marriage.”
“They recently downsized from their spacious home in Bel Air, which overlooked the Bel-Air Country Club, to a smaller home in the guard-gated community of Hidden Hills,” the source said. “They had looked at homes earlier this year in Idaho and were prepared to move out of Los Angeles, but eventually decided to stay as their daughters really wanted them close by at the time.”
The source added that they feel more comfortable leaving California now that “both girls have their own places and are trying to lead a normal life with their own friends and business opportunities.”
Loughlin and Giannulli pled guilty last year to charges related to them allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before. Loughlin served two months in prison, and was released at the end of December, while Giannulli served five months and was released earlier in April.
Loughlin and are now firmly focused on the future, which may involve Idaho.
“Lori loves hiking, skiing and the outdoors. Taking long hikes calms her and she looks forward to her hikes daily,” the source says, adding that Giannulli “also loves the outdoors and especially the snowboarding and skiing that Idaho has to offer.”
“They can start anew and work on their marriage together as the whole college scandal has taken a toll on both of them, as well as their marriage,” the source concluded.
It had previously been reported that Loughlin was hoping to resume her acting career after she got out of prison, but if any acting opportunities have come her way so far, they haven’t been reported in the media.
