Lori paired her sweater, which had drooping sleeves, with a set of slim gray jeans that were rolled up at the hems. 

She looked cozy in a set of gray–green Gucci fur-lined slippers, and she carried a large brown Hermès Birkin bag on her arm, which retails for more than $30,000.

The TV star carried a white shopping bag full of her purchases in her other hand and wore her blond-highlighted locks in a youthful messy bun while perching aviator sunglasses on her head.

She didn’t seem to mind referencing her conviction in the college admissions scandal, as she wore a bedazzled cloth mask for Project Angel Food, the non-profit for which she did her court-ordered community service.

Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli found themselves in hot water in 2019 after they were accused of paying bribes to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose into the University of Southern California.

Both parents admitted to paying $500,000 to help get their daughters admitted to USC as recruits to the rowing team, though neither had any experience with the sport.

More than 50 people were later charged as part of the college admissions scandal investigation, which found that over 30 people had paid more than $25 million to William Rick Singer to inflate their children’s exam scores and to bribe college admissions officials.  

Several high-profile individuals were wrapped up in the investigation, including Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest service mail fraud and was sentenced for 14 days in prison.

Lori was sentenced to two months in prison after she changed her plea to guilty for a single felony count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.

Mossimo pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud, which earned him five months in prison.

He ended up getting a break when prison officials allowed him to finish the final two weeks of his sentence on house arrest  

In October, a source told Us Weekly that Lori had ‘privately arranged to put two students through four years of college’ in an effort to ‘put the past behind her,’ and had paid $500,000 to do so.

The source added that the actress is hoping to ‘be allowed to move on’ in the wake of the scandal, as she feels ‘this stigma attached to her by people who don’t want her to have any success.’ 

‘She has served her time in jail and completed her probation, community service and paid all of her court fines.’

Lori was previously seen attending the funeral of her friend and former Full House costar Bob Saget, who died in his sleep on January 9 at a hotel in Orlando, Florida.

The comedian, who was 65, was in the midst of a standup comedy tour and had just performed a show in Jacksonville.

Short after his death was revealed, Lori spoke out in a statement remember her costar.

‘Words cannot begin to express how devastated I am. Bob was more than my friend, he was my family,’ she said. ‘I will miss his kind heart and quick wit. Thank you for a lifetime of wonderful memories and laughter. I love you Bobby.’

In December, the mother of Olivia Jade Giannulli returned to television on the GAC Family series When Hope Calls.

The show is a spin-off of Lori’s old Hallmark Channel show When Calls The Heart, and she reprised her role as Abigail Stanton from that earlier series in the second season premiere on December 18.

After Loughlin was charged in the 2019 Varsity Blues scandal, she was fired from When Calls The Heart and barred from other Hallmark shows and movies, and her previously filmed scenes for the show were edited out. 

However, Loughlin seems to have been invited back into the family-friendly sister-series, and When Calls The Heart’s creator has previously hinted that she might return to the flagship series.
