Lori Loughlin released from prison

For decades, Lori Loughlin lived the glamorous life of a Hollywood star with a consistently successful career in television and a wealthy fashion designer husband.

That all changed for her when she became embroiled in the college admissions scandal. The scandal resulted in her being sent to prison for a two-month sentence at the end of 2020. 

Now, just over two months after her release, a source has come forward to talk about what Loughlin’s new life is like post-prison.

She was recently photographed for the first time since her prison stint. She was spotted dressed casually doing volunteer work for the charity Project Angel Food in Los Angeles, California.

Loughlin Has Been Laying Low

Though Loughlin spent years living a public life in which she craved attention, laying low is her goal these days. 

“Lori is able to live a private life in Hidden Hills,” the source told People Magazine. “She spends a lot of time at home, does yoga and sees her daughters. She has been very focused on completing her court-ordered community service. She continues to be involved in charity. She always enjoyed charity work.”

The source went on to say that Loughlin “can’t wait” to welcome her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli home next month. He’ll have then completed his five month prison sentence for his own role in the college admission scandal. 

“Mossimo is doing okay,” the insider said. “The prison COVID restrictions have been less extreme. He is still expected to be released on April 17. Lori can’t wait to have him back home again.”

Loughlin’s College Scandal

It’s been nearly one year since Loughlin and Giannulli finally pleaded guilty to charges related to them paying $500,000 in bribe money. They paid to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.

Loughlin pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Giannulli admitted to to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and one count of honest services wire and mail fraud.

The scandal was particularly shocking to fans because Loughlin had spent her entire career playing wholesome characters like Aunt Becky on “Full House” and Abigail Stanton in the Hallmark Channel series “When Calls The Heart.”

Hallmark Cut Ties With Loughlin 

Hallmark cut all ties with Loughlin as soon as the scandal broke.

“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” Crown Media Family Networks, the parent company of Hallmark, said in a statement obtained by US Weekly in March of 2019.

“We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production,” the statement added.

Though she’s laying low now, sources have said that Loughlin does have hopes that she can somehow launch a comeback and resume her Hollywood career. 

“[Lori] would love to start working again one day, but she is scared people won’t work with her,” a source told Entertainment Tonight days after her release from prison. The source added that Loughlin has already “had her team put out feelers.”

It remains to be seen if Loughlin will ever appear on-screen again, or if she will remain in the shadows from now on. Only time will tell.
