After serving two months in the Big House, “Full House” alum Lori Loughlin is ready to return to acting. It appears real-life drama has been too much for the 56-year-old, who much prefers pretend storylines that don’t end with her going to federal prison.
If you recall, the biggest headline before the pandemic was the college admissions cheating scandal, involving wealthy parents paying specialized consultants millions to lie and cheat to get their kids admitted into prestigious universities (gasp).
Loughlin and her fashion-designer husband pleaded guilty to charges stemming from $500,000 payments to get their daughters recruited onto the University of Southern California’s crew team. The two girls had never participated in the sport.
Loughlin was released from the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, on Dec. 28, after serving two months of not-so-hard time. According to sources close to the actress, her team has “put out feelers” to see if anyone in Hollywood would be willing to work with her again.
The same sources claim Loughlin wants to “get her life back,” and her time behind bars was “unlike anything” she “has ever experienced in her life.”
Understandable, considering Loughlin is worth an estimated $25 million and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, is worth another $80 million.
The actress, who was once considered the queen of the Hallmark Channel, still has to complete 100 hours of community service.
Although no official projects for Loughlin are in the works, it’s highly likely that someone, somewhere, is pitching a screenplay right now about an actress who gets caught up in a cheating scandal, goes to prison, falls in love, and finds the true meaning of Christmas.
