Lori Loughlin Feels "Trapped" at Home Amid College Admissions Scandal

April 3, 2019

It seems Lori Loughlin needs a Fuller House, given how cooped up she's been inside her Bel Air mansion amid her college-admissions scandal. “Lori has felt very trapped for the last few weeks, not wanting to leave her house or go out with friends,” a source tells Us Weekly. Meanwhile, crisis manager Wendy Feldman has a theory as to why Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli are facing much harsher scrutiny than actress Felicity Huffman, who was also indicted in the scam. “Huffman will be able to make a comeback as her role is very small and she can, once the charges are agreed to, speak out and try to rehabilitate her family and her own image,” Feldman tells Us. “Lori Laughlin is in so deep [that> I do expect prison for her and her husband. That should be a transformative experience. But she is so far from a comeback or rehabilitating her image that I do not see it happening. It will take lots of hard work, honesty and humility.” Meanwhile, Page Six notes that both Huffman and Loughlin who appeared at court in Boston were told they wouldn't be receiving a plea deal without prison time. Lori and Felicity each face a maximum of 5 years in prison if convicted of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
