Lori Loughlin is reportedly interested in working again as an actress now that her Varsity Blues college admissions scandal is behind her after serving out a two month prison sentence.
On Thursday People claimed that the 56-year-old brunette beauty, who is best known for playing Becky on TV’s Full House and the subsequent revival Fuller House, hopes someone will hire her.
‘She always loved her career. She loves filming and creating movies,’ said the insider who noted a new TV show may be in her future.

The source also said: ‘She previously expressed that she would love to act again at some point.’
But it is not as if she will be calling up casting directors anytime soon to check in.
‘The only focus right now though is to reunite with Mossimo,’ added the friend. ‘It seems Lori will put everything on hold until Mossimo is home. She isn’t really thinking about anything else.’
Her freedom is still very new to her.

‘Lori is still in the moment of enjoying being back at home,’ a source shared with the site.
‘The next big focus is of course to have Mossimo back home. No one can visit him in prison, because of COVID. He stays in touch with his family via phone calls.’
UsWeekly reported on Wednesday that he was having a ‘tough time’ in prison.
Before the scandal, Lori had a thriving career. She played Rebecca Katsopolis on Fuller House from 2016 until 2018, and also starred as Abigail Stanton on When Calls the Heart from 2014 until 2019.

From 2013 to 2019 the LA resident portrayed Jennifer Shannon on Garage Sale Mysteries.
Her career began in 1971 with a small part in the TV series The Smith Family. She went on to work on The Edge Of Night, Full House, Hudson Street, Summerland and 90210.
Loughlin was released from prison Monday after spending two months behind bars for paying half a million dollars in bribes to get her two daughters into college.

The popular television star was released from the federal lockup in Dublin, California, where she had been serving her sentence for her role in the college admissions bribery scheme, the federal Bureau of Prisons said. Her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, is serving his five-month sentence at a prison in Lompoc near Santa Barbara, California.
According to People, Loughlin had a ‘tearful’ reunion with her daughters Olivia Jade, 21, and Bella Rose, 22, when she got home.
The actress was emotional as she returned to her children in Los Angeles on Monday and is ‘beyond relieved that she can put her prison sentence behind her’, a source told People.

The insider added: ‘It’s the most stressful thing she has ever dealt with. She plans on spending New Year’s with Olivia and Bella. She is still worried about Mossimo though, and can’t wait to have him home.’
Giannulli is scheduled to be released on April 17, the Bureau of Prisons says. Prosecutors said Giannulli deserved a tougher sentence because he was ‘the more active participant in the scheme.’
Loughlin and Giannulli were among the highest-profile defendants charged in the scheme, which revealed the lengths to which some wealthy parents will go to get their children into elite universities. Authorities said parents funneled bribes through a fake charity run by an admissions consultant to get their kids into top schools with fake athletic credentials or rigged test scores.

The famous couple admitted in May to paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits even though neither girl was a rower. Their guilty plea was a stunning reversal for the couple, whose lawyers had insisted for a year were innocent and accused investigators of fabricating evidence against them.
The only public comments either Loughlin or Giannulli made about the case since their arrest last year came at their sentencing hearings in August. Loughlin told the judge her actions ‘helped exacerbate existing inequalities in society’ and pledged to do everything in her power to use her experience as a ‘catalyst to do good.’
Their younger daughter, social media influencer Olivia Jade, made her first public remarks about the scandal this month on the series ‘Red Table Talk.’ Olivia Jade said she doesn’t want or deserve pity.

‘We messed up. I just want a second chance to be like, `I recognize I messed up.´ And for so long I wasn´t able to talk about this because of the legalities behind it,’ she said.
Loughlin and Giannulli were both initially supposed to report to prison on Nov. 19, but prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed Loughlin could start her sentence on Oct. 30. Loughlin also agreed that she would not seek early release on coronavirus-related grounds, prosecutors said.
Of the nearly 60 parents, coaches and others charged in the case, about a dozen are still fighting the allegations. The sentences for the parents who have pleaded so far in the case range from a couple weeks to nine months. Actor Felicity Huffman served nearly two weeks in prison last year for paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her daughter´s SAT answers.
