Lori Loughlin photos of her community service dropped — and I think it’s performative

When Olivia Jade made an appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk to discuss the college admissions scandal, recognizing the errors of the situation that she and her family were embroiled in, I assumed that that would be the end.

When Olivia Jade made an appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk to discuss the college admissions scandal, recognizing the errors of the situation that she and her family were embroiled in, I assumed that that would be the end.

But now, Olivia's mother, Lori Loughlin, seems to be regaining control of her image in the limelight, regardless of the intention.


On Wednesday, photos of Loughlin (who you may remember as Aunt Becky from Full House), were surfaced for the first time since her release from prison this past December.

Hmm, interesting.

A particular line that stuck out to me from Page Six described Loughlin with this simple description of what she was wearing:

"Loughlin was dressed casually in jeans and a 'California' sweatshirt and accessorized with sneakers, a face mask, a Project Angel Food cap, and her wedding ring."

She appears to be the depiction of the everyday woman, living in sunny California, following Covid-19 protocols, and still married.

But it doesn't end there.

The real problem with Olivia Jade's 'Red Table Talk' conversations.indy100.com

In February, someone "leaked" to the public that Loughlin was almost done with her court-ordered 100 hours of community service while also doing some service with Project Angel Food.

Again, there's nothing wrong with doing community service. I think everyone should at least once in their life.

However, the need to broadcast good deeds to appear to be evolved for self-gratification or to fix an image tarnished from prior mistakes makes me believe that this whole situation was performative.

Performative good deeds aren't the best thing to do. It's not necessary to do things to prove to yourself or others that you are a good person.

After all, actions speak louder than words.

The challenges of summertime parenting - from brain freeze to sandy cars

The best time of year to be a parent, just don't forget sunscreen

Mum of two, bar manager, and lover of wine. And tequila.

I love the sun more now than I ever did because parenting gets a bit easier in nice weather. But of course, the lighter nights and sunshine bring their own challenges too.

My four-year-old says the only thing he doesn't like about summer is brain freeze, which indicates how many ice lollies are consumed in this house. I made my own last summer from sugar-free cordial and may have to do the same again this year because they requested ice lollies for breakfast and haven't stopped asking.

The one work productivity method that actually works wonders for me—and it involves a timer

How to make the most of your time while working from home.

If you're anything like me, you might have felt that working from home has its ebbs and flows.

For one, you can work from the comfort of your own home or now, since restrictions are somewhat lifted in the United States ( I'm in New York City), you could go to a coffee shop if you want to change your scenery.

On the other hand, working from home can have its pitfalls because it can be easy to be distracted by your phone, television, or outside noises.

Essentially, productivity can easily fly out of the window.

But how can it be easier to make the most out of the day while working from home?
