Former “Full House” star Lori Loughlin is planning a comeback into acting, but she’s worried there won’t be any roles for her out there.

What’s going on?

An unnamed source recently told Entertainment Tonight that Loughlin is focused on “getting her life back” in the wake of her recent prison release.

  • Loughlin served about two months for her role in the college admissions scandal. She and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to paying $500,000 in bribes so their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, would be crew recruits for the University of Southern California.

Loughlin has some fear about returning to Hollywood, though.

  • “(Lori) would love to start working again one day, but she is scared people won’t work with her,” the source told ET.
  • However, Loughlin has “had her team put out feelers” for potential opportunities, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Any options?

I broke down some of her potential options earlier this week, highlighting that she has to see what’s out there for her now that she’s out of prison.

Brand and reputation management expert Eric Schiffer told me back in 2019 that Loughlin won’t have an easy time in Hollywood after the scandal.

  • “There is a high amount of producers that just will not touch her and certainly a studio because of the economic effect meeting advertisers is not going to work.”
  • “With a guilty verdict, and even her doing time, it’s going to be very difficult and will take time for her to get TV opportunities. Except for maybe playing villains, or characters that she wasn’t known for. And her brand isn’t aligned with.”
