Lori Loughlin Is Losing Her Support System

Christopher Luu

As Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, wait for their court appearance, sources close to the couple explain that friends and neighbors are starting to take a step back and distance themselves from the disgraced parents. Louhglin's neighbors in Bel Air, Calif., include a slew of parents who are huge philanthropists with children who were accepted to prominent colleges without the scandal that Loughin and Giannulli have been embroiled in. The source adds that while the couple may feel isolated now, everything hinges on the court decision — if the two aren't convicted, things will probably blow over and everything will go back to normal.

"A lot of these people are ­socially prominent, give to charities, have done the right things wealthy people are supposed to do in this town. They’re scared they might get ostracized by association," the source told Page Six . "They're calling less, inviting less. Hanging back — for now. If [Giannulli and Loughlin] are not convicted, everything will go back to the way it was. But if they are, well, they might want to move. It’s sort of Bel Air Bonfire of the Vanities ."

It's clear that Loughlin is keeping a low profile. With photographers following her every move, neighbors say that she's not doing much aside from staying home and going to church.

"Lori and Mossimo are being contemplative and spiritual right now,' a family friend told The Post . "Lori goes out a little bit, but the paparazzi follow her everywhere. She’s like a hunted animal." The friend adds that the only place that Loughlin feels completely supported is at church. Throughout the aftermath of the scandal, she's attended the Church of the Good Shepherd regularly. Outside the house of worship, however, it's a different story. Parishioners, especially ones with college-bound kids, don't want to be associated with the disgraced duo.

"The [friends and neighbors] with kids in college or kids who'll be applying to colleges next year, they're afraid an association with Lori and Mossimo — even with Olivia and Bella — might make them appear 'entitled,'" the source added. "Which is something you don't want to seem, even in Bel Air, at least, for this moment."

Page Six adds that rumors suggesting that Loughlin and Giannulli are struggling to maintain their marriage are completely false. Sources have noted that they plan on presenting a "united front" at court.

"Mossimo and Lori are still very much in love," a source said. "It's been trying for all of them, but they understand this is life and they got taken advantage of."

    Is Now The Time To Put National Western Life Group (NASDAQ:NWLI) On Your Watchlist?

    Are National Western Life Group Insiders Aligned With All Shareholders? Many consider high insider ownership to be a strong sign of alignment between the leaders of a company and the ordinary shareholders. So as you can imagine, the fact that National Western Life Group insiders own a significant number of shares certainly appeals to me.

    Why Tesla Seems to Be Struggling with Q3 Deliveries

    We see an uncanny similarity between Tesla's record deliveries in Q4 2018 and Q2 2019, as both quarters coincided with the gradual withdrawal of the federal tax credit. Tesla cars were eligible for a $7,500 tax credit last year, which fell to $3,750 on January 1, 2019. On July 1, the tax credit decreased further to $1,875.

    Does Plug Power's (NASDAQ:PLUG) Share Price Gain of 84% Match Its Business Performance?

    One simple way to benefit from the stock market is to buy an index fund. Just take a look at Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ:PLUG), which is up 84%, over three years, soundly beating the market return of 38% (not including dividends). Plug Power isn't a profitable company, so it is unlikely we'll see a strong correlation between its share price and its earnings per share (EPS).

    EMERGING MARKETS-Latam FX subdued, Colombia stocks gain after Saudi attacks

    A surge in crude prices in the wake of attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities drew muted reaction from Latin American currencies on Monday, while gains in oil producers supported Colombia's stock markets. Oil prices surged nearly 20% at one point on Monday after the attack in Saudi Arabia, the world's biggest oil exporter, halved the kingdom's production. But prices came off their peaks after President Donald Trump authorized the use of the U.S. emergency stockpile to ensure stable supply, helping the dollar climb against a basket of major currencies.

    Saudi Aramco attacks: What we know so far

    Attacks on two sites at the heart of Saudi Arabia's oil industry shut down more than 5% of global supply, sent oil prices as much as 20% higher and prompted the United States to blame Iran despite Tehran's denials. Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi group, which is battling a Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, claimed responsibility for the attacks on Saturday on sites run by state-owned Saudi Aramco. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ruled out Yemeni involvement and accused Iran of leading the attacks.

    After major McDonald's setback, ad agency We Are Unlimited's survival in doubt

    The Chicago agency, founded three years ago to exclusively handle domestic advertising for McDonald's, lost its principle — some would say only — reason for being on Friday when the burger behemoth said it had tapped the New York office of Wieden + Kennedy as lead creative ad agency in the United States. McDonald's executives on Friday said the burger company wasn't entirely abandoning We Are Unlimited, however. McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) plans to leave the shop some of the less high-profile grunt work to handle on the McDonald's ad business while superstar shop W+K takes over the more glamorous consumer-fronting part of the account.

    Drone Attack on Saudi Oil Field Seen as Realizing Worst Fears

    For many of the national security teams that monitor threats on the U.S., the apparent drone strike Saturday on the heart of Saudi Arabia's oil production facilities was the realization of their worst fears. Houthi rebels battling Saudi Arabia in Yemen took responsibility for the attack and said they used drones, though U.S. officials have said Iran was behind the attack and that at least some cruise missiles may have been used. The attack underscored fears raised by U.S. security officials and experts in terrorism about the rapid evolution of technologies that could have allowed inexpensive devices to pierce Saudi defenses in a way that a traditional air force could not: flying long distanc...

    I inherited money. Should I invest it all at once? Or space it out?

    Historically, about 70% of the time, just investing a lump sum at one time yielded a better result than dollar-cost averaging over a 12-month period. For DCA to pay off, the market must decline, by enough and for long enough, to get a lower average per share price than a lump sum initial purchase would produce. The longer the time frame, the better the odds the market will not do this and DCA will produce an inferior result.

    Is A Full-Blown War In The Persian Gulf Inevitable?

    Iran has been able to counter U.S. President Trump's maximum pressure strategy by taking the challenge to the next level. With a big bang, the global oil market has been forced to rethink the current fundamentals and future prospects, as Saudi Arabia's most critical infrastructure, the Al Abqaiq gas-oil separation plant (GOSP), was hit by drone strikes over the weekend. After neglecting or outright ignoring increased geopolitical risks and new technological challenges, culprits have hit Abqaiq, which is not only the heart of the Saudi Aramco oil and gas infrastructure, but also the center of the global oil market.
