Welp, it appears Aunt Becky is not only confident she'll avoid jail time, but seems to feel she'll be able to pick back up where she left off. Apparently, Lori Loughlin thinks she'll "return to work" once her college admission scandal is done.

... and it's safe to say people think she's delusional.

  • Lori's life has been hanging in the balance as she and others involved in a college admissions scam wait to face the music -- possibly jail time.

    Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are facing up to 40 years behind bars for their reported involvement in a college bribery scandal. The pair allegedly dished out $500,000 to get their daughters (Isabella and Olivia Jade) into USC under the guise of being recruits for the crew team.

    A plea deal was on the table (it had a two-year prison sentence attached) that Lori and Mossimo rejected before being indicted on new charges (money laundering and fraud). They both pleaded not guilty to the charges and are waiting to see how things shake out.

    "[Lori] reads everything that’s written about her and it's killing her that her squeaky-clean reputation has done a total 180," an unnamed insider exclusively tells Us Weekly about Lori Loughlin feeling she'll get back to work. "She thinks she's not going to serve jail time and [will] return to work."

  • Since her indictments, both Hallmark and Fuller House ceased working with Lori Loughlin.

    Hallmark dropping Lori from various projects -- including When Calls the Heart, Garage Sale Mysteries, and the endless number of Hallmark Christmas movies -- came after Hallmark fans called for her termination in the most public and unapologetic of ways.

    Fuller House dropped Lori from its fifth and final season around the same time, signaling Aunt Becky's checks have come to an end.
  • People are beyond fed up with Lori's inability to take ownership of her actions.

    Facebook comments

    Judging by the reaction, peeps want Lori to stop being "arrogant," say she's sorry, and own up to her mistakes.

    Thus far, that hasn't really happened -- but who knows what will go down in the future?

  • Basically, they want Lori Loughlin to go to jail just because.

    At this point, it's safe to say Lori has not only fallen from grace, but lost people who loved to call her Aunt Becky.

  • Yup, can't help her.

    It doesn't seem Lori is super remorseful about her actions (maybe in her heart of hearts she doesn't think what she allegedly did was that bad), so we can't say we're surprised to see so many people calling for her head.
