Lori Loughlin is feeling “concerned” about a new Netflix documentary that will examine the college admissions scandal, Fox News reports.

What’s going on?

An unnamed source recently told “Entertainment Tonight” that Loughlin has felt worried about the new Netflix documentary, which will do a dramatized retelling of the college admissions scandal.

  • The source said Loughlin is trying to “focus on the positive” ahead of the documentary’s release.

Context

Netflix announced in February it would release a new documentary that will look at William “Rick” Singer — the man behind the college admissions scandal, as I wrote for the Deseret News.

The new documentary called “Operation Varsity Blues,” the name of the FBI operation that led to arrests and multiple court cases associated with the scandal, will feature actors reenacting the FBI’s operation, as I wrote for the Deseret News.

The scandal led to Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, serving prison time for their involvement. The couple allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli, would be recruits for the crew team at the University of Southern California. Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded not guilty at first before they changed their plea.

What’s next?

It’s unclear when Loughlin will open up about what happened in the scandal, Fox Newsreports. But it appears she may have the opportunities to do so.

  • “Lori’s been offered many opportunities to open up about what she has been through, but she can’t seem to find the right words. She fears no matter what she says, people can’t get past this,” the unnamed source told “Entertainment Tonight.” “At this point, she just wants to move forward and focus on the positive.”
