Lori Loughlin’s daughters are getting used to a new standard as their parents go to jail after pleading guilty to the university’s admission scandal.
And the girls, 20-year-old Olivia Jade and 21-year-old Bella, think it will be strange to visit the two while they are in prison for months, according to UsWeekly. Lori is likely to have two months behind bars, while her husband Mossimo is likely to have five months.
“It will be surreal for Isabella and Olivia to visit them behind bars, but this is a much better outcome than what they envisioned,” an insider told the site. The family reportedly feared that the two would get years instead of months in prison.

The girls have said they are “proud” of their mother.
“As embarrassing and awful as it has been, Olivia and Isabella still love their mom very much and it hurts to see her suffer,” the source added.
Last week, sources on the same site said it was difficult for all family members.
“Olivia and Bella were devastated when Lori and Mossimo told them they were pleading guilty,” said a source. “The girls have been spending a lot of time with their parents lately and are becoming more and more close-knit families.”
Lori and husband Mossimo pleaded guilty to paying half a million dollars to get their two daughters to the University of Southern California (USC) as part of a college bribery scheme.

They appeared on separate screens during their video hearing, showing no emotion as the prosecution explained their crimes and made no other comments than answering questions from U.S. district judge Nathaniel Gorton.
He has not decided whether to accept the deals they have made with prosecutors.
According to their proposed deals, Loughlin, 55, hopes to spend two months in prison and Giannulli, 56, tries to serve five months.
But the judge said he will decide whether to accept the deals after considering the pre-sanction report, a document that contains background information on defendants and helps make decisions about penalties.
Judge Gorton did not say when he would decide, but planned their hearings for August 21.

Loughlin and Giannulli were among dozens of wealthy parents, athletic coaches, and others charged with bribery last year. The parents paid hefty bribes to get their children to top universities with false test scores or false athletic credentials, authorities said.
The couple were scheduled to go to trial in October on charges of bringing their two daughters as crew recruits into the USC, although neither girl was a rower.
Prosecutors say they funneled money through a fake charity run by college admissions advisor Rick Singer, who has pleaded guilty to orchestrating the scheme.
Prosecutors recorded phone calls and emails that the couple were working with Singer to get their daughters to the USC with fake athletic profiles portraying them as rowers.
In an email, Singer told Loughlin and Giannulli that he needed a photo of their older daughter on a rowing machine in training clothes “like a real athlete.”
According to the court documents, Giannulli responded: ‘Fantastic. Will get everything ‘and Singer sent the photo.

Prosecutors had also submitted a fake resume to USC that falsely claimed that their youngest daughter, social media star Olivia Jade, rowed in prestigious competitions such as the head of the Charles.
Singer and the former coach he paid to create Jade’s fake athletic profile collaborate with investigators and were expected to testify against the pair at trial.
Loughlin has also agreed to pay a fine of $ 150,000 and 100 hours of community service. Giannulli has agreed to pay a fine of $ 250,000 and to perform 250 hours of community service.
Loughlin pleaded guilty to plotting to commit wire and post fraud.
Giannulli pleaded guilty to plotting to commit wire and post fraud and fair services wire and post fraud. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss the money laundering charges and bribery of federal programs added after the case was brought.
Loughlin and Giannulli insisted for more than a year that they were innocent and thought their payments were legitimate donations to Singer’s school or charity.
