Lori Loughlin ‘would love to act again at some point’ now that she’s out of prison

Lori Loughlin was released from federal prison a few days after Christmas, and a few days shy of her full two-month sentence. I like that they didn’t release her for Christmas, and I love that she had to serve almost her full sentence. Considering Lori spent her entire prison sentence giving melodramatic updates to People Magazine, why would anything change once she was released? Days after she got out, “sources” told People that Lori had a “tearful reunion” with her two daughters“, and that this is “the end of a very long ordeal.” Lori “seems beyond relieved that she can put her prison sentence behind her. It’s the most stressful thing she has ever dealt with.” Apparently, she’s already thinking about getting back to work too:

Although Lori Loughlin’s focus is on her husband right now, she hopes to be able to return to work in the future. The Full House alum, 56, was released from a federal correctional facility in Dublin, California, on Monday morning after finishing her sentence for her involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal. Her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, meanwhile, is still serving his five-month sentence.

“Lori is still in the moment of enjoying being back at home,” a source tells PEOPLE. “The next big focus is of course to have Mossimo back home. No one can visit him in prison, because of COVID. He stays in touch with his family via phone calls. It seems Lori will put everything on hold until Mossimo is home. She isn’t really thinking about anything else.”

“She previously expressed that she would love to act again at some point,” adds the insider. “She always loved her career. She loves filming and creating movies. The only focus right now though is to reunite with Mossimo.”

I always thought that the difference between how Felicity Huffman handled her criminal situation versus how Lori handled hers would be the biggest indicator of both ladies’ ability to “come back.” Felicity pleaded guilty, did a big mea culpa, seemed deeply humbled by the scandal, did her time quietly and didn’t beg to come back right away. So Felicity was “rewarded” with a chance to come back. Lori spent the past year and a half whining to People Magazine, lying about the crimes she committed and trying to Karen her way out of facing any consequences. So… I don’t think Lori will be welcomed back to the Hallmark Channel with open arms. But who knows – maybe all of Lori’s sh-t actually worked.

    Not to be glib, but forgiving a white, Christian woman for abusing a system meant for the underprivileged seems to be a special talent here in the US. She and her grifter family will be fine

      It’s not glib to state the obvious. You’re right. The entertainment industry has proven to be a very forgiving one, especially for a particular demographic, if you know what I mean…

      Not only will she be fine, but her audience will probably welcome her back with open arms. She totally represents the “haves”, people who would have done the same thing as her, if they had had the means.

  2. Tammy says:

    She should just go away to her mansion. It’s not like we are missing out on a great actress or anything.

  3. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    I doubt even Orange is the New Black would accept her as an uncredited extra.

    ‘felicity….didn’t beg to come back right away. So Felicity was “rewarded” with a chance to come back.’
    This is a food explanation of why olivia saying now isnt the time to shame me but give me a second chance. I think chances are earned, a sorry is shown as genuine by changed actions. Olivia wants to go back i to her bubble and nor be reminded of this ever again

    She will be just fine and she will get work because of course. Maybe she and Kirk Cameron can star in some delightful romantic comedy.

    Ugh. No. As the mother of a student who is working so hard to qualify to get into a good college or university on her own merits, I really don’t want to see this woman’s face right now. Go take a break and do some good for underprivileged students and maybe I’ll be less sick of you.

    Right now I look at her and I don’t see her sorry for anything but getting caught. I understand she wanted to use every advantage to leverage her daughters into a good school, but fraud? What they did is so criminal yet they don’t seem to know or understand why it deserves jail. Would it take trying to help disadvantaged students to open their eyes to what they did denying genuine contenders a place that their daughters took by fraud? Really, what would it take? She has no shame.
