How Lori Loughlin Feels About Returning To Acting After Prison

Full House alum Lori Loughlin reported to prison in October 2020 to serve her sentence following the college admissions scandal. Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying bribes to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli into the University of Southern California, in addition to pretending the girls were part of the crew team. Ultimately, Loughlin pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, according to HollywoodLife. She was released from prison less than two months after going into the facility.

While Olivia Jade went public with her feelings about her role in the ordeal in December 2020, Loughlin hasn't spoken out. Even so, that doesn't mean she plans to hide from the public forever. In fact, a source told HollywoodLife, "Lori is very hopeful everything will all be behind her in 2021." Apparently, the actress is "so ready to move on from all of this" and believes that she needs to "just lay as low as possible" following her prison stint. Specifically, she "would love to act again, but when the time is right."

The insider claimed that Loughlin "feels like more time needs to go by still for everyone to move on. But that is her overall goal in due time." However, that's much easier said than done. Sure, many eyes are on Loughlin, waiting to see what she will do and say next, but that doesn't automatically translate to Loughlin nabbing a major acting role.

Lori Loughlin may be gearing up for a comeback

Before her legal troubles, Lori Loughlin was a fixture on the Hallmark Channel; however, that all came crashing down in the wake of the scandal. Now, insiders are claiming that Loughlin is already working on "getting her life back," per Entertainment Tonight. Sources told the outlet in January 2021, "[Lori] would love to start working again one day, but she is scared people won't work with her."

Apparently, Loughlin's team has "put out feelers" to see if anyone would be interested in hiring her for acting opportunities. Additionally, the jail time gave Loughlin "time to think," which makes sense, but when is she going to start talking? Will she ever publicly address her role in the scandal? Or will she just try to move on, looking for acting opportunities with such a big elephant in the room.

An insider claimed to ET that Loughlin "realizes that talking about this is a healthy part of the process to get past it all." Hopefully, that means Loughlin will share her side of the story in some sort of tell-all interview. Almost everyone loves a comeback story, right?
