Sources have come forward to say that former “Fuller House” star Lori Loughlin is set to finish her 100 hours of community service for her role in the college admissions scandal this week. They have also said that with her sentence now nearly complete, she is eager to move on with her life.
“Lori is due to complete her community service hours this week. She’s been working with children who have learning disabilities and has found it very fulfilling,” a source told US Weekly.
A second insider added that Loughlin, 56, has been doing additional community service with Project Angel Food, noting she’s “going above and beyond the hours that she is required to do.”
Brad Bessey, Project Angel Food’s Head of Communications, had nothing but praise for Loughlin.
“A court cannot order the level of excellence, hard work, and kindness Lori Loughlin brought to her community service at Project Angel Food preparing and delivering life-saving meals to critically ill people,” he told Entertainment Tonight.
Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, pled guilty last year to charges related to them allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money 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 served a two month prison sentence that ended in December, while Giannulli is still in prison serving a five month sentence that is not expected to end until April.
Sources have said that Loughlin is eager to put this scandal behind her, and that she wants to resume her acting career.
“[Lori] would love to start working again one day, but she is scared people won’t work with her,” another source said, adding that Loughlin has already “had her team put out feelers.”
This insider added that prison was “unlike anything Lori has ever experienced in her life,” and heading home “was like a dream come true.”
“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 tight-knit family.”
