  • In March 2019, news first broke about "Operation Varsity Blues," a multimillion-dollar college admissions scandal.

  • Fifty people were charged for their involvement, including Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli.

  • Now, Netflix is telling how the scandal unfolded in an all-new documentary, Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal.

The scandal at the heart of Netflix's Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal involved fifty people — well-to-do parents, college coaches, test administrators, and more — but all eyes are still on Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli.

The couple eventually pleaded guilty to charges filed in the nationwide college admissions bribery scandal after it was revealed that they paid $500,000 to William "Rick" Singer to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, recruited to the University of Southern California crew team. Following the charges, they were both sentenced to community service, a combined $400,000 in fines, and jail time. As of right now, Lori has completed her two-month prison sentence and Mossimo is expected to finish his five-month sentence in the coming months.

Now that she's served her time, the former When Calls the Heart actress "just wants to move forward and focus on the positive," per a report from Fox News. Her concern: the revealing Netflix doc may make it harder for her to do so. Lori is reportedly "concerned" about how Operation Varsity Blues will paint her and her husband's role in the scandal, especially because "she wants nothing more than for time to pass so people won't be talking about the college scandal anymore."

Just a few months ago, the couple's youngest daughter Olivia broke her silence on Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Red Table Talk nearly two years after the news first broke. In the tell-all interview, the popular social media influencer admitted to her family's mistakes, revealed what she's learned in the time since, and addressed how she plans to acknowledge her privilege going forward. At one point, she mentioned that despite everything, she still remains very close with both of her parents. "I'm super close with my parents, especially my mom. She's my best friend. It's definitely hard not being able to talk to her," she said, referring to her mom who was serving in prison at the time.

When the time is right, the same source revealed to Fox News that Lori will come forward and tell her side of the story. "Lori's been offered many opportunities to open up about what she has been through, but she can't seem to find the right words. She fears no matter what she says, people can't get past this," they continued.
