A source spilled to Us Weekly that “She prays day and night” and can’t wait to come home to her daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose. Meanwhile, Loughlin has also been using her spare time to read.
Loughlin is due to be released from the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, Calif., on Monday, December 28.
In November a previous source told Us Weekly that Loughlin was “doing okay,” and had made several friends in prison. While Loughlin hung out with a group and kept to herself the insider added that she does “attend church and has been praying a lot.”
“It would be horrible PR if Lori got COVID-19 and got really sick,” the source added, and “officials are taking COVID-19 seriously with a high-profile inmate,” but so far Loughlin is “healthy.”
Loughlin checked in to prison on Friday, October 30, and while she spent Christmas behind bars, she should be home for the New Year. Meanwhile, her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, will remain in a federal prison in Lompoc, Calif., until April 2021 as part of his five-month sentence.
Loughlin was jailed for two-months for her involvement in the college admissions scandal. Loughlin and Giannulli were caught paying $500,000 to William Singer to get both of their daughters into the University of Southern California, and even fabricated photos of the girls on a rowing team.
Loughlin was dished out the jail time as well as a $150,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and two years of supervised release. Giannulli was hit with a longer jail sentence, a $250,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and two years of supervised release.
Meanwhile, Olivia Jade opened up on Red Table Talk about her parents’ incarceration and did not get the sympathy she might have hoped for.
“This has been a really eye-opening experience for me and situation, and although there’s a lot of negativity around it and a lot of mistakes and wrongdoings, it’s led me to have a completely different outlook on a lot of situations,” Olivia Jade said.
“I feel like a huge part of having privilege is not knowing you have privilege. So when it was happening, it didn’t feel wrong. I was in my own bubble, focusing on my own comfortable world.”
While Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith were less harsh on the influencer, Adrienne Banfield-Norris and social media were much harder on Olivia Jade, with Banfield-Norris admitting that she found it hard to muster up the energy to invest herself in Olivia Jade’s plight.
“It just makes it very difficult right now for me to care in this atmosphere that we’re in right now,” she said as she felt Olivia Jade would be fine in the end and that losing her endorsements and not being in school were trivial compared to what’s going on in the world.
