Prison consultants say whoever is giving Lori Loughlin advice ahead of her college admissions scandal trial doesn’t know what they’re doing

Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, right, leave the John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse in Boston on Aug. 27, 2019.

Actress Lori Loughlin has reportedly been training in martial arts in preparation for a potential prison sentence in the college admissions scandal.
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 to guarantee their daughters’ admissions to the University of Southern California as row recruits.
Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to three charges, and if they’re convicted, they could face up to 50 years in prison each for their crimes.
Prison consultants Justin Paperny and Michael Frantz told Insider that Loughlin is getting bad advice from an unidentified prison consultant, calling the decision to train in martial arts “ridiculous.”

As Lori Loughlin gets ready for her upcoming trail in the college admissions scandal, she has reportedly hired a prison consultant who’s teaching her martial arts to prepare for a possible prison sentence, in a move other experts in the industry have called “ridiculous” and “absurd.”

Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have pleaded not guilty in the college admission scandal case, in which they’re accused of paying the scheme’s ringleader, William “Rick” Singer, $500,000 to guarantee their daughters’ admissions to the University of Southern California as coxswain recruits for the school’s crew team.

Radar Online reported in December that Loughlin has hired a consultant to teach her prison slang and martial arts ahead of her trial.

But Insider spoke to two prison consultants who criticized the advice Loughlin was receiving.

Justin Paperny, who served 18 months in prison for a felony security laws conviction, is the founder of White Collar Advice, which advises people facing federal prison sentences for non-violent and financial crimes, said of the martial arts training: “It’s so ridiculous. It’s absurd.”

Michael Frantz, who served 36 months in prison, is the founder of Jail Time Consulting, which …read more

Brad Pitt says he’s followed by paparazzi because of his ‘disaster of a personal life’

brad pitt golden globes 2020

Brad Pitt and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” costar Leonardo DiCaprio participated in actor and comedian Marc Maron’s podcast, titled “WTF With Marc Maron” and spoke about being followed by paparazzi.
“I’m just trash mag fodder,” Pitt said. “I don’t know. Because of my disaster of a personal life, probably, most likely.”
Pitt has starred in notable films over the years, but his high-profile relationships with stars like Jennifer Aniston and Angelia Jolie have gained just as much attention.

Brad Pitt says he’s constantly followed by paparazzi and thinks he knows the reason why.

“I’m just trash mag fodder,” Pitt said while participating in an interview with “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” costar Leonardo DiCaprio as part of actor and comedian Marc Maron’s podcast, titled “WTF With Marc Maron.” “I don’t know. Because of my disaster of a personal life, probably, most likely.”

Pitt’s comment was sparked by Maron asking the two stars if they “remember the moment where you realized your life was never going to be the same again?”

For DiCaprio, starring as Jack Dawson in James Cameron’s 1997 movie “Titanic” marked a turning point in his career.

The actor recalled four SUVs waiting outside his house one day and then being followed by the same vehicles later that day when he went to a liquor store.

“Then they just kept following me every day of my life,” he added. “I was like, ‘OK, this life will never be the same.'”

DiCaprio went on to say that he’s not hounded as frequently anymore, though he’s followed more when he has a film coming out or is doing press.

“I’ve been able to escape a lot more, which is great, and walk around outside and …read more

Go read this short story about family history and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Fiction isn’t real life. It’s not meant to be, really, because the form is a reflection. Narratives lie because they make sense out of the nonsense of everyday life; they’re always retroactive. (As Nell Zink wryly observes in her latest piece about translation: real people don’t work backward. “They wish they could live as purposefully as fictional characters constructed around all-consuming psychological motivations, but not enough to change their lives.”) The best fiction — the best narratives — on the other hand, get close enough to the real thing that they feel alive, a living and breathing thing. Which is the feeling I got when I read Jamil Jan Kochai’s phenomenal short story “Playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” in this…
