Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli don't like being called 'cheaters' in college scam: report

As Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli prepare to fight the charges against them in the ongoing college admissions scandal, a new report indicates that they’re struggling with the negative public perception.

The couple pleaded not guilty Monday to money laundering and mail fraud. The charges stem from their alleged involvement in the nationwide scam that demonstrated the lengths wealthy, status-seeking parents will go in order to secure their child a spot at a coveted university.

As they prepare for what comes next in their legal proceedings, a source tells People that the entire family is struggling with how they’re being viewed in the public eye.

“This is putting unspeakable stress on her and her family,” the insider told the outlet. “They’re having to play this all out publicly, and they’re fair game for jokes and memes, but also outraged [by] people who are saying that they are cheaters.”

The source added: “They’re being destroyed.”

Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of spending $500,000 each on daughters Isabella and YouTube star Olivia Jade to make it look like they were recruits on the University of Southern California’s crew team, despite never rowing in the sport.

The girls’ statuses are reportedly on hold at USC amid an internal investigation. If convicted, the Loughlin and Giannulli face up to 40 years in jail.

The couple and more than a dozen other parents were hit last week with a money laundering conspiracy charge on top of the mail fraud conspiracy charge they were already facing. Several other indicted parents have also filed court documents entering not guilty pleas.

The “Today” show co-anchor broke the news on air to a heartwarming reception from her fellow anchors—even receiving a hug from co-host Craig Melvin. “I’m very pregnant… I don’t know how I hid this,” said Hager in her announcement.

Hager also spoke about her daughters—Mila, 6, and Poppy, 3—and their reaction to the big news. The mother of two revealed the pregnancy to her daughters via their Easter baskets, which drew elated reactions from the tots. “They told the man behind me on the airplane. They told the people at church,” Bush Hager said with a laugh. “They’re so happy — to [the point] where they’re telling strangers.”

Hager also expressed fear when debriefing co-host Hoda Kotb about the pregnancy. “I told Hoda, I said I’m so sorry. She had a glimmer in her eye. Lo and behold, we are doing it at the same time,” said Hager, referring to Hoda’s announcement of her newly-adopted daughter Hope Catherine.

KISS guitarist Paul Stanley explains how a childhood deformity led him to become a rock legend

KISS guitarist Paul Stanley explains how a childhood deformity led him to become a rock legend

KISS guitarist Paul Stanley said a physical deformity is responsible for pushing him to become one of the most flamboyant and stylized rockers in history.

Stanley may be better known to fans for the “Starchild” persona that he’s used since he started with the iconic band in the late 1970s. Stanley would paint one black star over his right eye, which he recently revealed was part of the rock and roll glamor he turned to after being a social outcast in his youth.

Stanley sat down for an interview with Dan Rather on AXS TV where he got candid about living with a deformity called microtia and how it pushed him into the spotlight.

KISS COVER BAND MEMBER CATCHES FIRE DURING LIVE SHOW, DOESN’T STOP PLAYING

“I pursued fame as a way to compensate for a lot of insecurities. I was born deaf on my right side and I had a birth defect. I had what’s called a microtia, which is basically not having an ear. Having a crumpled mass of cartilage,” he shared. “And, I wasn’t very socially adept and when you have something physical that sets you apart from people it makes you really a target of unrelenting scrutiny and sometimes ridicule. And, quite honestly, the idea of becoming famous was a way to push it in people’s faces and go, ‘you see, you should have been nicer to me.’”

While he’s grateful for the many years he spent with KISS and for the life it’s given him, he says that he learned quickly that fame wouldn’t solve his problems. However, he thanks the rocket-ride for teaching him that lesson early, when there was still time to do something about it.

ACE FREHLEY WORKED WITH GENE SIMMONS ON ‘SPACEMAN,’ WOULD ‘DEFINITELY GO BACK WITH KISS’

“I was fortunate enough to have success come to me and realize that didn’t change anything. So I was really blessed because, at that point in your life, it’s either a disappointment because it’s not a remedy and you either put a needle in your arm, a gun in your mouth or you live life as a victim, and I’m not cut out of that,” he said. “So I decided that I would spend my life and my time on self-exploration and trying to make myself a better person and seeing where that was going to take me.”

Now, Stanley and the rest of the band are preparing to leave their makeup and armored outfits behind at the conclusion of their “KISS End of the Road World Tour,” which kicked off earlier this year.

Pink says she’ll no longer share photos of her kids after people comment ‘just some of the nastiest things’

Pink says she'll no longer share photos of her kids after people comment 'just some of the nastiest things'

Pink says she’ll no longer share photos of her children on social media after receiving a slew of negative comments about her parenting abilities.

The 39-year-old mother of two appeared on Monday’s episode on “The Ellen Show” where she spoke with host Ellen DeGeneres about the decision to cut back on posting about her kids. The final straw came when she shared an image of her and her children admiring a pelican that flew into their room and allegedly stayed with them for about two hours.

Pink caught backlash online for the fact that her 2-year-old son, Jameson, was bottomless with no diaper in the beach photo despite the fact she edited out his private parts.

“We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It’s what happens. I’m naked sometimes,” Pink explained (via The Hollywood Reporter).

She continued: “People went as far as saying, ‘Someone should call Child Services,’ because he didn’t have a diaper on, and ‘How dare I?’ — just some of the nastiest things,” an emotional Pink said. “I cried so hard after that because I like to share my family. … I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done and I just won’t share them anymore. I won’t do it.”

The star acknowledged that she has a responsibility to her kids, Jameson and 7-year-old sister Willow, given that she’s in the public eye. However, she takes issue with the “anonymous” keyboard warriors’ approach.

“There’s a kind way to be online. I’m open to kindness online,” she said.

The image in question remains on Pink’s Instagram. However, she has since changed the caption to be a scathing lecture to the trolls that commented on her child’s bottomless appearance.

“There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s penis? About circumcision??? Are you for real? As any normal mother at the beach, I didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper,” she wrote. “I deleted it because you’re all f—ing disgusting. And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors.”

Pink concluded: “And the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives. There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh. Here’s a picture of the pelican we obviously caught and abused for hours before dangling baby penis in its face.”

In her interview with Degeneres, Pink noted that she’s happy to engage with her online haters if she has the time. She previously fired back at critics of her opinions on the Covington Catholic school students after they were criticized for their behavior at a march for Native American people.
