After the recent announcement that Loughlin, 57, will star in this December’s When Hope Calls: A Country Christmasher first TV gig since serving two months in prison last year for paying $500k in bribes to get her daughters Olivia Jade, 22, and Isabella, 23, into USC — “Felicity was shocked,” spills the source.

The Desperate Housewives alum, who spent 11 days behind bars in 2019 after she confessed to paying $15,000 to boost her daughter Sophia's SAT scores, “copped a plea early on — unlike Lori — so she can’t understand why the industry is being so hard on her,” the source explains.

“Felicity can’t help but be envious that Lori will be back on TV so soon,” spills a source.

Huffman, 58, whose husband, Shameless star William H. Macy, is a respected figure in showbiz, “was hoping that would help her get offers, but that hasn’t happened,” laments the source. “She’s paid her penance and feels like Lori messed with the system even worse than she did.”

In November 2020, Huffman accepted her first role following her prison stint as the lead of a new ABC series — however, there doesn't seem to have been any updates on that project since.

That's not to say that other opportunities haven't been rolling in. As OK! reported in March, a source revealed the Transamerica actress "has been getting a ton of offers to tell her side of the story," spills the source. However, she was "shunning them all because she doesn't feel ready."

Meanwhile, Loughlin has high hopes for her latest project. A source previously told OK! the Full House alum “was eager to get back to TV as soon as possible,” adding, “She’s grateful for the opportunity to reprise her character because it’s her big shot at redemption.”
