Lori Loughlin Exits the Large ‘Home’ After Two-Month Stint for Faculty Admissions Scandal

Fuller House star Lori Loughlin was released from prison on Monday after a two month stint over a college admissions scandal that she immortalized with her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli. The couple paid William “Rick” Singer $ 500,000 to help their two daughters get admitted to the University of Southern California. The parents pleaded guilty to conspiracy earlier this year.

America’s “Aunt Becky” served her sentence on October 30th at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California. Her husband is now serving his five-month sentence at the Federal Correctional Complex Lompoc.

Her daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli first appeared on Red Table Talk to share her experience.

“It was hard. For anyone, whatever their situation, you don’t want your parents to go to jail, but I think it is necessary that we keep going and moving forward, ”she said. “What happened was wrong and I think everyone in my family can look at it and say, ‘That was messed up, that was a big mistake.'”

She added, “But I think what is so important to me is learning from the mistake. Not getting embarrassed and punished and never getting a second chance … I’m 21. I feel like I deserve a second chance to pay back myself to show that I’ve grown. “

The young woman added that she “didn’t know exactly what was going on”.

“The first time it happened, I didn’t look at it and say, ‘Oh my god, how dare we do this? ‘I said,’ Why is everyone complaining? I was confused about what we did. ‘It’s embarrassing to admit,’ she said, adding that she was a good student but didn’t deserve to be at USC.

“I didn’t let up in high school,” she said. “I don’t want to discredit myself to the point where I thought I had all of this and I didn’t care. It was really important to me. I was also a very dedicated student. I think I put a lot of trust in someone who claimed their job was student counseling and that led me in the wrong direction. It’s not about shifting the blame. It’s just to explain that I didn’t know what was going on. “
