After spending two months behind bars, Lori Loughlin wants to put the college cheating scandal ‘behind her,’ and HL has EXCLUSIVELY learned that means focusing on a possible acting comeback!
After serving her time for her role in the nationwide college admissions cheating scandal, Lori Loughlin is back home. The disgraced Fuller House star was released on Dec. 28, just two days shy of two months behind bars. With her career in shambles and her reputation ruined, Lori, 56, is now focusing on rebuilding her life. “Lori is very hopeful everything will all be behind her in 2021,” a source close to Lori tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “That’s why she’s tried to just lay as low as possible [since being released from jail]. She’s so ready to move on from all of this.”
Lori hasn’t made a public appearance since she was let out of prison early, and it seems that will be the case for the immediate future. Lori “would love to act again, but when the time is right,” the source tells HollywoodLife. “She’s ready to do it because she misses it and it’s her passion, but she also feels like more time needs to go by still for everyone to move on. But that is her overall goal in due time. She wants to return to some normalcy now that she’s served her time.”
She also has 100 hours of community service to fulfill since that’s part of her May 2020 sentencing. Lori and husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500k in bribes to get their daughters – Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli – enrolled in USC as part of the school’s crew team. After a year of fighting the charges levied against them, including money laundering, they finally threw in the towel. She pled guilty to one charge of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and Moss pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. She was sentenced to two months, while her fashion designer beau was sentenced to five months. His current release date is April 17.
While Lori will be “laying low” and keeping out of the public eye, the same can’t be said for her daughter, Olivia Jade. A day after her mother was released, Olivia, 21, posted a TikTok video where she showed off a new beauty look. “Like this if I should bring back my #blogzzzzz,” she captioned the video, referencing her YouTube channel. The young beauty “influencer” stepped away from her channel and its 1.8 subscribers a year ago amidst the cheating scandal’s fallout. Olivia “wanted her mom to get back home first,” a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, “and then get back to work in the new year.” It seems both daughter and mother are ready to put this cheating scandal behind them.

HollywoodLife has reached out to Bernie Sanders’ team for comment.
Social media users were quick to comment on the look, which is one of the more surprising outfits to be turned into Halloween inspo.”WHY DOLLSKILL SELLING A SEXY BERNIE SANDERS COSTUME?!” one person asked, while another quipped, “Just when you think you’ve seen it all… a ‘sexy’ Bernie Sanders Halloween costume. Of course, it’s marketed as a ‘political chairman’ costume. Ha!”
Although the day was about Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris, all eyes were on the Vermont senator after a photo circulated of him sitting with his arms crossed in the audience. He discussed the photo on Late Night With Seth Meyers, explaining that his now-iconic mittens, like anything he chooses, were all about practicality.
“I was just sitting there trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on,” Sanders told Meyers, with a laugh. The viral photo from the January 20 festivities became a meme in real time. Images of a seemingly grumpy Sanders replacing Samantha in the Sex and the City cast, chilling in Guy Fieri‘s convertible, sitting on the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones, and just riding a dirty subway car in NYC started making the rounds. Thousands upon thousands of these popped up on Twitter.

Ray J Breaks Silence After Buzz That He & Kim Kardashian Have A 2nd Sex Tape
Ray J addressed the rumors that he & Kim Kardashian have a second sex tape together in a recent Instagram post.
Ray J shot down rumors that he and his ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian have a second sex tape together. After Wack 100, Ray J’s former manager, said on a recent podcast that he had “more graphic footage” of Kim, Ray finally addressed the situation in an Instagram comment.
Responding to the podcast video, Ray J wrote, “This ain’t cool – I been staying off the Raydar – Just staying focused and being humble and thankful for all the blessings I’m receiving. How can I show growth and maturity if this kinda of stuff keeps happening?”
Ray J, who is a father of two to kids Melody, 3, and Epik, 1, with Princess Love, continued to write, “I’m a father now and my job is to be a great parent and put them first. This is not the message I want to send out – smh.”
Meanwhile, Kim’s attorney, Marty Singer, denied the tape to Page Six, saying in a statement, “The claim that there is an unreleased sex tape is unequivocally false. It is unfortunate that people make these statements to try and get their 15 minutes of fame.”
Ray J and Kim filmed their first sex tape in 2002 while they were in Cabo, Mexico for Kim’s birthday. The tape was later released in 2007 and caused a worldwide stir as it circulated the internet. However, Kim and Ray have since moved on and gone about their lives. They actually do not have a second tape together and Ray J wants everyone to know that, which he made clear in his recent comments.
