Lori Loughlin seems to be doing all she can to make up for her college admissions scandal!
According to US Weekly, a source close to the actress revealed that she is now majorly focused on putting the past behind her as she looks forward to what’s ahead.
The insider explained that Loughlin has served the time for her actions, finished her probation, paid all her court fines, and completed all her hours of community service.
However, despite completing all those terms, she continues to volunteer and work with Project Angel Food, where she served her 100 hours of community service.
Much more than that, the disgraced actress is focused on putting out some good in the world. The source added that Loughlin “privately arranged to put two students through four years of college,” and their tuition amounts to more than $500,000.
In all of this, the source shared that the “Rad” star wants “to be allowed to move on” because there are people who don’t want her to be successful and have attached the stigma of the college scandal to her.
Lori Loughlin’s First Acting Gig
As you might know, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were involved in the college admission scandal after they were accused of paying a $500,000 bribe to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, into college.
After a lengthy trial, the couple pleaded guilty to fraud charges, with Loughlin sent to two months behind bars while Giannulli spent five months in prison.
Months after her release in December 2020, Loughlin is set to make her return to acting. As The Blast previously reported, she bagged her first acting role in the Hallmark series, “When Calls The Heart.”
Loughlin will star as Abigail Stanton in the sequel to the series titled “When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas,” set to premiere on December 18.

Before her scandal, the “Full House” alum served as a producer and actress on “When Call The Heart,” but her contract with Hallmark came to an abrupt stop when the college admissions scandal was brought to light.

Loughlin also has a possible appearance in the prestigious “Dancing with the Stars” competition. According to her daughter Olivia Jade, who is currently a contestant on season 30, “it’s not out of question” for her mother to be a part of the show.
Even Olivia’s dance partner pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy is strongly rooting for Loughlin to come on board. While the actress hasn’t particularly addressed the speculations, she has been fully behind her daughter throughout the competition.
