Days after her prison release, Lori Loughlin wants "her life back" and is desperate to make a Hollywood comeback like Felicity Huffman.
Early last Monday morning, Lori Loughlin was released from a California prison after serving a two month sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal. Now a source close to the former “Fuller House” star says she’s desperate to launch her Hollywood comeback.

The source told Entertainment Tonight that Loughlin “has started talking about ‘getting her life back‘” as she’s desperate to put this scandal behind her and start working again in Hollywood.

“Lori’s homecoming was perfect. Her girls put together a special homecoming with flowers, welcome home decorations and her favorite foods,” the source said. “She was emotionally overwhelmed by how much she missed them and still has to remind herself that if anything good came out of all this it’s their closeness and renewed faith in their tightknit family.”
But there is still a weight on the family.
“She has told friends that finally being home is the best holiday gift she could ever ask for, and now her focus is counting the days until her husband is home,” the insider continued. “Lori spent her first week [at home] appreciating every minute of settling in and spending time with her girls. Now that she is safe at home and getting back into her routine, she is finding it very difficult to not to worry about Mossimo.”
Loughlin’s husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, is still in prison serving a five month sentence for his own role in the college admissions scandal.
Lori Loughlin’s Prison Sentence
Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison earlier this year after she finally pled guilty to charges related to her allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have her two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.
While being in prison was not easy for Loughlin, her time behind bars reportedly had a profound impact on her, according to the source.
“While she kept her girls quiet for so long regarding details of this experience, she realizes that talking about this is a healthy part of the process to get past it all,” the source said.
“She was really proud of Olivia for speaking out [on Red Table Talk] and taking the steps she needed to move forward from this scandal.”
Could Lori Loughlin Make A Hollywood Comeback Like Felicity Huffman?
A comeback for Lori Loughlin in Hollywood may indeed be in the cards, after we saw what happened to former “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman.
After serving fourteen days in prison for her own role in the college admissions scandal, Huffman scored a role in an untitled baseball comedy pilot for ABC.
The Oscar-nominated actress and Emmy-winning TV star is set to star in a story inspired by Susan Savage who is the real-life owner of the Sacramento River Cats, the minor league feed team for the San Francisco Giants.
