Former Hallmark star Danica McKellar said Lori Loughlin didn’t deserve to go to prison over the college admissions scandal.

What she said: “She’s a wonderful person, she always has been, and it would be challenging to find a person who hasn’t made a mistake in their life,” McKellar told Insider at the iHeartRadio Music Awards  in Los Angeles.

  • “She served her time,” McKellar added. “I’m not going to speak to whether or not she deserved that, personally I don’t think so — but she served the time.” 

Catch up quick: Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty in the college admissions scandal in 2020.

The bigger picture: Loughlin has made her return to acting already, appearing on the GAC Family show “When Hope Calls” — a spinoff of the “When Calls the Heart” series on Hallmark, as I reported for the Deseret News.

  • But Loughlin still remains unconnected to the Hallmark Channel proper, which cut all ties with her after the college scandal first broke.
