Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.

That was a smart move grabbing When Hope Calls for GAC Family and also grabbing Lori Loughlin will give them buzz to bring attention to their new network GAC Family.

She made a mistake and she paid for her actions. Her life still has to go on and I think it would be great to see her acting again. It’s not like she was a serial killer. Leave well enough alone and let the woman pursue her career. I’m glad to hear she’s coming back.

Does GAC Family get tax credits for employing a convicted felon?

I liked her on When Calls The Heart and I will watch her again but I wish she was on the other show. She has payed her dues.

Who’s surprised? Replace La Loughlin? Are you kidding? Let her kid kick off the apology tour first on DWTS cuz they’re quite controversial over on that show anyway. “NEXT ELITIST PLEASE”! Safe to say some of us would be UNDER the jail being called everything but a child of God. You know how that goes right? If you’re another race, not just black, trans, gay, etc. Good on Hallmark. Always sending the very best. Excuse me while I VOM! That whole family is laughing at the system.

I welcome her back but hope she returns to When Calls The Heart. That is where she belongs.

I am so excited. I am also hoping Garage Sale Mysteries returns!

I’d love to see them reboot “Edge of Night,” perhaps as a prime-time crime serial. Bring Lori back as Jody, now the Monticello DA!

She served her time and I think she has been punished enough. Everone deserves a second chance. Good for her. Now Hallmark get over it and restart her mystery movies.

THIS IS SUCH BULLCRAP!!!!! I mean…to me, BOTH Lori Loughlin and that husband of hers HAVE NOT PAID their debt (or whatever) to society!!!!! AN ULTIMATE MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE ALL THE WAY!!!!!

What exactly would be enough payment? She certainly isn’t the only parent greasing the wheels to help their not quite smart enough child make it through, while the rest have to succeed on merit and brains alone. I’ll bet there are many more people getting away with stuff like that, that we never hear about because they are only rich, but not famous enough to make headlines.

Boy, I hope you never make a mistake! Lori Loughlin & her husband did a Trump manipulation move! He’s not been put into the brink yet? Still thinks he can run for President “that’s on US”!
Meaning if you seriously think she’s the only person with the means to give their kids a leg up, wow nieve. I love her, she owed it, ive made mistakes. Live & learn.
You should be more outraged by who rolled over to keep Ass out of prison! She actually did way more her child wasn’t all this & that! She couldn’t have got a spot in college period! She paid her way out, in the process throwing Lori Loughlin & her husband under “Huge BUS”. She threw mo ey at the problem & walked away! You should be mad/bitter about.
How long do you think she should go to jail? Waste of a person, who did nothing that thousands of people have done prior to her. It just wasn’t splashed acrossed the pages of manipulation of magazines who made money on someone else’s pain. Tell me without a doubt TRUMP didn’t do the same thing? He just an excellent example of how things work! Lime light, pardoning himself if he’s President again. Down the rabbit hole with the Americans who stormed the White House ~ I’d say it looks like see one play one! He didn’t getting in jail ~ his supporters did! Lori Loughlin was used to make a statement, just for the record, if her daughters didn’t know? Seriously they had never rowed in their life’s.
So that outrageous act, they have had a very cushy lifestyle, because of there parents hard work!

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.
