The college admissions scandal is still reverberating for Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli, who have reportedly resigned from the Bel-Air Country Club.

People magazine reports that the couple resigned "voluntarily... much to the disappointment of many of the members and the Board."

The same insider who described the couple's resignation noted they have "lost friends" over the scandal. The source went on to say, "People have been very critical about their actions. The backlash has been intense. They have been members of the country club for many years. Their current house even overlooks the golf course. Many of their friends are members as well."

TMZ reports that the Board had voted unanimously to suspend the couple's membership until after they had served their prison time.

TMZ reported that a past president of the Board, Michael Gallagher, was not happy with that decision, writing in a critical letter that allowing felons to continue to be members "causes irreparable harm to the Club and its members."

In May, Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges stemming from the scandal, which rocked the nation last year.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the court hearing was done over Zoom.

The two were in separate rooms, each with their own attorney. It is unknown if they were in their lawyers’ offices or in their own home.

Though the judge has not accepted or rejected their plea deals, sentencing for Loughlin and Giannulli was set for August 21.

If the judge signs off on the plea deal, Loughlin will serve two months of prison time, pay a $150,000 fine, perform 100 hours of community service, and be on two years of supervised release.

As part of Giannulli’s plea deal, he will serve five months in prison, pay a $250,000 fine, perform 250 hours of community service, and be on two years of supervised release.
