As OK! previously reported, the 57-year-old actress pled guilty and served a two month jail sentence after paying $500,000 in bribes to get her children — Olivia Jade, 22, and Isabella, 23 — into the University of Southern California.

But according to a source, she is eager to get back to her work in television and put this whole mess behind her. “She’s psyched, but humbled,” dished the source, adding “She’s grateful for the opportunity to reprise her character because it’s her big shot at redemption.”

“She is a little nervous about things going smoothly, but she’s going to put her head down and work hard,” the source commented, admitting the actress is aware there will be fans will "find it hard to forgive her" but she is hoping that this show will only lead to more projects in the future. “She’s ready to give this her all.”

When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas is set to debut on December 18 on GAC Family.
