Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade deletes vulgar Instagram post

Westlake Legal Group olivia-jade-giannulli-cellphone Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade deletes vulgar Instagram post Jessica Sager fox-news/person/olivia-jade fox-news/person/lori-loughlin fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc c4f66662-8ca9-50a0-b60c-092a566c051d article

Lori Loughlin‘s daughter Olivia Jade deleted an Instagram post in which she flipped the bird at the media amid her mom’s college admissions scandal.

Last month, the 19-year-old beauty vlogger held both her middle fingers in the air like she just didn’t care.

She captioned the snapshot, “@dailymail @starmagazine @people @perezhilton @everyothermediaoutlet #close #source #says.”

LORI LOUGHLIN REPORTEDLY TERRIFIED DAUGHTERS MAY HAVE TO TESTIFY IN COURT

Her sister Bella commented at the time, “Not over you and this. QUEEN.”

While no reason was given for her removal of the flippant post, it may have to do with Felicity Huffman‘s prison sentence.

Huffman, 56, was sentenced to 14 days behind bars after she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in May.

LORI LOUGHLIN WAS ‘OBSESSED’ WITH GETTING DAUGHTERS INTO USC, REPORT CLAIMS

The “Desperate Housewives” star admitted to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter’s answers on the SAT. She wrote that she’d considered the same for her younger daughter but decided against it.

Huffman must also perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine.

FELICITY HUFFMAN ON COLLEGE SCAM: ‘NO EXCUSES OR JUSTIFICATIONS’

Based on Huffman’s fate, Loughlin’s brood may be starting to take their own situation more seriously.

Loughlin, 55, and husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to alleged scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella recruited onto the University of Southern California’s crew team despite neither girl ever being a rower. USC put the girls’ enrollment statuses on hold amid an internal investigation into the scandal.

LORI LOUGHLIN REPORTEDLY KEEPING CLOSE EYE ON FELICITY HUFFMAN’S CASE, FEARS BEING ‘PENALIZED FOR HER FAME’ IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

Giannulli and Loughlin refused the plea deal that other parents in the Operation Varsity Blues case – including Huffman – accepted. Giannulli, 56, and Loughlin then were slapped with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and may face up to 40 years behind bars if convicted on all charges.

A source admitted recently that Loughlin regretted not accepting a plea bargain following Huffman’s sentencing.

LORI LOUGHLIN, MOSSIMO GIANNULLI’S LAWYERS SLAM ‘BASELESS ALLEGATIONS’ OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST

“[Loughlin] didn’t understand the entire nature of the charges against her, and she wasn’t even sure if or how she had broken the law. It was very early, and she didn’t have all the information that she has now,” the source said. “Based on what she understood at the time, she made the best choice for herself. Now there is no deal on the table, and she has to have faith that the courts and the prosecution will move fairly and not make an example out of her.”

For her part, Olivia Jade rumored to be avoiding social media for a full year following the arrests of her parents, but she posted a tribute to mom Loughlin for the actress’ 55th birthday in July before posting the rude body language snap.

Following Loughlin’s arrest, Olivia Jade lost several endorsement deals, including sponsorships with Sephora, TRESemmé and Estée Lauder.

Property Brothers” star Jonathan Scott was friends with Zooey Deschanel before they began dating, according to a new report.

A source told People that Scott, 40, and Deschanel, 39, struck up a friendship following their joint appearance with respective siblings Drew and Emily on “Carpool Karaoke.”

“They were doing ‘Carpool Karaoke’ and they had a really fun day,” an insider dished. “They became friends after and then started talking as friends and realized there was more to it. It’s still a very new relationship.”

Deschanel announced her split from husband Jacob Pechenik just a week before photos of her and Jonathan holding hands were published, but People’s source claims that the “New Girl” star and her screenwriter husband, with whom she shares two children, had been over for months before making it public.

As for what she has in common with the hunky contractor, the source says, “He has a great sense of humor. They have a lot of the same interests. They both love music and movies.”

Over the weekend, Jonathan played quasi-coy about his new love.

“I am seeing someone,” he confessed. “I’m a very private person, so I don’t typically talk about that. It’s definitely special for me because I am the guy who raises the bar in what I’m looking for in a partner. I was caught a little off guard. It was definitely a pleasant surprise.”

Shane Gillis gets support from ‘SNL’ alum Rob Schneider after being fired over racial slurs

Shane Gillis has at least one “Saturday Night Live” player in his corner: “SNL” alum Rob Schneider.

The “Hot Chickstar tweeted Monday, “@ShaneMGillis as a former SNL cast member I am sorry that you had the misfortune of being a cast member during this era of culture unforgiveness where comedic misfires are subject to the intolerable inquisition of those who never risked bombing on stage themselves.”

Gillis was fired from the NBC late-night staple after a YouTube video surfaced of him using a racial slur while discussing a Chinatown neighborhood with another comedian.

Gillis responded to the backlash on Thursday, hours after the comments first resurfaced.

“I’m a comedian who pushes boundaries. I sometimes miss. If you go through my 10 years of comedy, most of it bad, you’re going to find a lot of bad misses,” he tweeted. “I’m happy to apologize to anyone who’s actually offended by anything I’ve said. My intention is never to hurt anyone but I trying to be the best comedian I can be and sometimes that requires risks.”

It apparently wasn’t enough for “SNL” and NBC brass.

“After talking with Shane Gillis, we have decided that he will not be joining SNL,” an “SNL” spokesperson on behalf of Lorne Michaels, the iconic series’ creator and producer, confirmed to Fox News. “We want SNL to have a variety of voices and points of view within the show, and we hired Shane on the strength of his talent as a comedian and his impressive audition for SNL.

KATHY GRIFFIN SLAMS ‘SNL’ PRODUCER LORNE MICHAELS

“We were not aware of his prior remarks that have surfaced over the past few days. The language he used is offensive, hurtful and unacceptable. We are sorry that we did not see these clips earlier, and that our vetting process was not up to our standard.”

Gillis later tweeted, “Of course I wanted an opportunity to prove myself at SNL, but I understand It would too much of a distraction. I respect the decision they made. I’m honestly grateful for the opportunity. I was always a mad tv guy anyway.”

Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful Andrew Yang also somewhat defended Gillis, saying he shouldn’t lose his job. Gillis is slated to meet with Yang for a discussion.

Abby Lee Miller offers Felicity Huffman prison advice: The first day is ‘the most stressful’

Abby Lee Miller has some perspective on what Felicity Huffman can expect from her 14-day prison sentence for her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

On Friday, the “Desperate Housewivesstar was sentenced to 14 days in federal prison, plus 250 hours of community service and a $30,000 fine for her role in the so-called “Operation Varsity Blues.” She is ordered to turn herself in on Oct. 25.

Huffman, 56, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in May. She confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter’s answers on the SAT. She wrote that she’d considered the same for her younger daughter but decided against it.

FELICITY HUFFMAN ON COLLEGE SCAM: ‘NO EXCUSES OR JUSTIFICATIONS’

Miller, 52, who completed an eight-month stint in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud in March 2018, told Us Weekly of Huffman’s future behind bars, “Well, the first day going in is the most stressful. Then, after that, she is going to be in a big, huge room with bunk beds, tons of them. That’s where they first put you to get acclimated to the prison life.”

JOHN LEGEND ON FELICITY HUFFMAN PRISON SENTENCE: ‘NO ONE IN OUR NATION WILL BENEFIT’

“She’s not going to get a job because she won’t be there long enough. She’s not going to learn how to be a plumber and how to do HVAC, and how to do all the things that you have to do to go over to the men’s prisons and do,” the “Dance Moms” star added.

“That’s why they have camps. That’s why women are in prison, so we can go make lunches when they all get in a fight. It’s ridiculous,” she scoffed. “It is the most absurd nonsense you have ever seen in your life.”

FELICITY HUFFMAN REQUESTS TO SPEND 14-DAY SENTENCE IN CUSHY PRISON NEAR LA HOME

As for her vision of Huffman’s life post-prison, Miller has a pretty rose-colored view.

“She’ll make a huge movie out of it,” she cracked. “She’ll make millions of dollars and I’m the one paying for her health care for the rest of her life privately.”

In April, Miller said of Huffman’s then-potential prison stint, “My advice would be, take a deep breath and if you need a consultant, I’m your girl.” She added, “Be respectful of everyone, keep a low profile, be kind to people. Tell your story, but listen.”

Artie Lange: ‘God spared me’ from dying from drug addiction

Comedian Artie Lange isn’t entirely sure how he survived his 30-year battle with drug addiction,but says he wears his deformed nose as a badge of honor for making it this far.

“Obviously my nose is still a mess, but it’s funny — I like that as a reminder,” Lange, 51, told TMZ. “Every time I look in the mirror, it reminds me of the insane life I led. A lot of bad decisions I made — I mean, 30 years of drug abuse, snorting heroin and cocaine, [and] I accidentally snorted glass once, which is a long story.”

COMEDIAN ARTIE LANGE OUT OF REHAB, 7 MONTHS SOBER

(A brief version of Lange’s “long story” about snorting glass: A former fling of Lange’s used a glass salt shaker in a hotel room to crush OxyContin for him to snort, inadvertently shattering the glass shaker. Pieces of glass mixed in with the crushed OxyContin, which Lange didn’t notice until after he’d snorted the exceedingly dangerous mixture, leading him to weeks of chronic nosebleeds thereafter.)

“I got punched in the face once by a guy collecting money for a bookie. This nose should be a reminder to young people — I hope it is: If you can make money, have some success, you can still live like a straight-up scumbag.”

Lange, who revealed last week that he’s seven months sober, admitted that at the lowest points of his addiction, he was reminded of friends Mitch Hedberg and Greg Giraldo, who suffered untimely deaths due to their own battles with substance abuse.

“I said to myself, ‘I’m gonna just be found dead in a hotel room. I’m not gonna make it,'” he recalled. “God spared me. For some reason I’m still here.”

LEGENDARY COMEDIAN ARTIE LANGE OPENS UP ABOUT DRUG ADDICTION, LEGAL TROUBLES AND LOVE FOR HIS DEVOTED FANS

He was quick to explain, however, that his character remains relatively unscathed despite his “scumbag” struggles.

“I’ve never been a bad person but I’ve done some bad things because I was addicted to drugs and still am,” he said. “But I’m in recovery now, so I’m happy to see people responding well to me looking better.”

“I’m gonna get it fixed eventually,” he said, noting that he’s interested in speaking with “Botched” plastic surgeons. “It looks a little better, but I don’t think it could look much worse.”

Lori Loughlin college admissions scandal case ‘upsetting’ for ‘Fuller House’ cast, co-star says

Lori Loughlin‘s involvement in the college admissions scandal, which got her booted from “Fuller House,” still has her co-stars reeling from her untimely exit from the Netflix revival of the classic sitcom.

“Well, we all love Lori because Lori’s part of this family, too,” Juan Pablo di Pace, who stars as Fernando on the show, told Us Weekly on Saturday. “So, it’s an upsetting situation.”

He added, “I mean, we wish her the very, very best on this really difficult situation, but she is part of the family, so it’s painful for everybody.”

‘FULLER HOUSE’ SEASON 5 STARS BEGIN PRODUCTION WITHOUT EMBATTLED LORI LOUGHLIN

Di Pace also said he has no idea how Loughlin’s character, Aunt Becky, will be written off of the series’ upcoming final season, explaining, “They don’t tell me about that. We don’t talk about that.”

Loughlin, 55, and husband Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to alleged scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer through his fraudulent Key Worldwide Foundation to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella recruited onto the University of Southern California’s crew team, even though neither girl had rowing experience.

LORI LOUGHLIN WAS ‘OBSESSED’ WITH GETTING DAUGHTERS INTO USC, REPORT CLAIMS

The couple rejected the plea bargain that many other parents allegedly involved in the case (including Felicity Huffman) accepted. Giannulli, 56, and Loughlin were consequently slapped with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and would face up to 40 years behind bars if convicted on all charges against them.

Huffman was sentenced last week to 14 days behind bars, a $30,000 fine and 250 hours of community service after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in May. She confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter’s answers on the SAT.

‘FULLER HOUSE’ STARS SEEM TO REFERENCE LORI LOUGHLIN IN KIDS’ CHOICE AWARDS SPEECH AMID COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

Loughlin’s onscreen husband, John Stamos, previously addressed her exit from the show similarly.

“I haven’t been on the show yet and it hasn’t come up, so I’m going to talk to some people about it this week and see what’s going on,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m just going to wait a little longer before I talk about it.

Last month, Stamos told GQ of Loughlin’s criminal case, “I gotta be careful. I want to wait until the trial happens, if it does, or whatever the result is, and then talk about it. … I’ll tell you one thing that has been strange is: Honestly I can’t figure it out. It doesn’t make sense.”

Lori Loughlin ‘aware’ of Felicity Huffman sentence, regrets not taking plea deal: report

Lori Loughlin may have second thoughts about pleading not guilty in the college admissions scandal following Felicity Huffman‘s 14-day prison sentence.

A source close to Loughlin told People that the former “Fuller House” star was “aware of Felicity’s sentence and is processing what that means for her.” The insider added of Huffman’s sentencing date Friday, “This has been a rough day. Lori is going to move forward as best as she can, but now she has a little more clarity about what will happen next.”

Huffman, 56, was sentenced to 14 days in prison after she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in May. She confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter’s answers on the SAT. She wrote that she’d considered the same for her younger daughter but decided against it.

A judge also ordered Huffman to perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine.

Loughlin, 55, and husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to admissions scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella recruited onto the USC crew team despite neither girl ever being a rower. USC put the girls’ enrollment statuses on hold amid an internal investigation into the scandal.

The pair rejected the plea deal that other parents allegedly involved in the case — including Huffman — accepted. Giannulli, 56, and Loughlin then were hit with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and would face up to 40 years behind bars if convicted on all charges.

“If she’s found guilty, she will go to jail; that is clear. And if another deal is offered to her, which I don’t think it will be, she will go to jail,” the source said.

“Her only chance of avoiding jail is to beat these charges. Lori is a smart woman; she understands that. She’s scared and upset, but she’s resolved to be strong and to fight this. She will do what she has to do to protect herself and her family.”

The source admitted that Loughlin “regrets” not taking the plea agreement when prosecutors initially offered it but insisted Loughlin had no idea she did anything illegal when making the payments to Singer’s Key Worldwide Foundation.

“She didn’t understand the entire nature of the charges against her, and she wasn’t even sure if or how she had broken the law. It was very early, and she didn’t have all the information that she has now,” the source said. “Based on what she understood at the time, she made the best choice for herself. Now there is no deal on the table, and she has to have faith that the courts and the prosecution will move fairly and not make an example out of her.”

Legal experts previously told Fox News that Loughlin’s and Giannulli’s strategy — essentially pleading ignorance to the scam — may not hold up in court.

“The government doesn’t have to prove that Loughlin and Giannulli knew what the payments were used for,” said attorney Neama Rahmani. “The fraudulent application to USC is enough to support the conspiracy charges. And there is more than enough circumstantial evidence to prove that they knew the payments were for an illicit or unlawful purpose.”

What may work in Loughlin’s favor: the decision from the judge in Huffman’s case not to throw the book at the “Desperate Housewives” star because of her fame — though it may end up differently for Loughlin and Giannulli, who didn’t immediately take responsibility or show remorse for their alleged actions.

U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani told a tearful Huffman during her sentencing, “I think this is the right sentence here. You can move forward and rebuild your life after this. Without this sentence, I think the community around you would ask why you got away with this.”
