Lori Loughlin ‘is planning to ask Felicity Huffman what it’s like in prison’ in case she is also sentenced to jail over college admissions scandal
- Lori Loughlin, 55, faces charges for allegedly trying to bribe USC with $500k
- Felicity Huffman, 56, is now in prison for 14 days for paying $15,000 for her daughters tests to be doctored
- By all accounts, Huffman’s prison isn’t too difficult with salmon and make-up available from the commissary
Full House star Lori Loughlin will ask Felicity Huffman about her prison stay in case she has to serve time for her alleged role in the nationwide college admissions scandal, it has been claimed.
Ex-Desperate Housewife, Huffman, 56, reported to the low-security, female Federal Correction Institute in Dublin, California on Tuesday after she pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to a corrupt college counselor to mark up her daughter’s SATs score.
Loughlin, 55, pleaded not guilty to a charge of trying to bribe their two daughters’ way into the University of Southern California with $500,000. Both her, and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, will be tried in 2020.

‘She’s definitely hoping that Felicity’s time in prison will go easy for her, because that will be a positive sign that, if Lori has to serve time, that she’ll be able to weather it as well,’ a source told People.
‘She wants to debrief Felicity after jail to find out what it was like and what her advice would be.’
Prosecutors have said that those parents who don’t ‘fess up to the charges could be hit with a longer sentence.
The former Full House star has maintained that she is innocent of the charges but said that she wanted to be prepared should the judge hit her with jail time.
Loughlin added that the two actresses have never been friends but that she now feels their ‘fates are tied together.’
The low-security facility in Dublin, California is said to be ‘like a camp’ opposed to a prison
There’s a fully stocked commissary with cans of salmon and beef bites and even the option to buy make up
Reports from life inside Huffman’s female federal prison may give Loughlin some relief.
‘It’s essentially like a camp, as opposed to a prison where you’re incarcerated in individual cells,’ Page Six reported Assistant US Attorney Neama Rahmani as saying on Tuesday.
‘Folks are in some common environment.’
Her fellow prisoners will be individuals involved in white collar crime and fraud rather than murderers and thieves.
