Lori Loughlin quotes Chumbawamba in first major interview since college admissions scandal

Aunt Becky has turned to the tao of Tubthumping.

You ain’t ever gonna keep Lori Loughlin down.

In her first major interview since her 2019 college admissions scandal, the Full House star didn't really address the headline-making controversy at all. Instead, while reflecting on the challenges she has faced in recent years, she turned to the wise words of Chumbawamba in their seminal 1997 hit, "Tubthumping."

"Every day, we're met with different obstacles," Loughlin said in a new First for Women Magazine cover story. "But, for me, it's like that song says, 'I get knocked down, but I get up again.'"

The actress then proceeded to weigh in on the importance of forgiveness, the danger of negativity, and the power of moving forward.

“Every day we’re met with different obstacles, but it’s all in how you approach things,” she told the outlet. “For me, it’s just persevering, and as an actress, I hear ‘no’ a lot, so I just have to be myself and persevere and try not to let in negativity.”

She added that her best advice to others who are struggling was to “just keep moving forward,” no matter what. “Everyone has good times and bad times. That’s life. I think you just have to pick yourself up,” she said. “Nobody said life was going to be a breeze. There’s beauty in life, but there’s also hardship in life.”

Loughlin explained that, in general, she tries to “be a forgiving person” to everyone, including herself. “I’m not one to hold onto stuff. Stuff happens to everyone,” she told First for Women. “We’ve all been in positions to ask for forgiveness, but to ask for it, you have to learn and know how to give forgiveness, too.”

In 2021, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to wire and mail fraud after they were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to make it look like their daughters, Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli, were recruits for the University of Southern California’s crew team. However, neither daughter had ever actually participated in the sport.

For the crime, Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison, two years of supervised release, and 100 hours of community service, and she also had to pay a fine of $150,000. Her husband was sentenced to five months in prison, two years of supervised release, and 250 hours of community service, and was slapped with a $250,000 fine.

Loughlin was released from prison in December 2020. The Full House and Fuller House alum has returned to television in the years since, appearing in the second season of the Great American Family series When Hope Calls and a recent episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm
