SALT LAKE CITY — Lori Loughlin isn’t feeling all that well about the college admissions scandal.

An unnamed source told People magazine that Lori Loughlin isn’t feeling indignant in the aftermath of the college admissions scandal.

“Lori is remorseful, and she has definite regrets,” the source told People magazine. “She’s embarrassed and hurt, and she knows that her reputation has been ruined for life. But she also believes the allegations against her aren’t true.”

“She honestly didn’t think what she was doing was any different than donating money for a library or athletic field,” the source told People. “That’s the crux of why she pleaded not guilty.”

Loughlin is reportedly OK with jail time, too, per Elle magazine.

“Lori is ready for this to be over,” the unnamed source told People magazine. “They all are. At this point, it would be better to spend a few months in jail — because she’s been spending the last several months in her own prison.”

Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli, could be crew team recruits for the University of Southern California. Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded not guilty in the court case.

Loughlin and Giannulli are set to appear in court on Aug. 27.
