Lori Loughlin is glad her ‘Meet My Mom’ telepic, debuting Saturday (5/8), has been used to promote writing to soldiers overseas. In fact, the Hallmark Channel set up a Media Wall on its Facebook page for troops to post videos to their moms for Mother’s Day — which has generated gratifying response from entities from the USO to the Pentagon Channel. ‘You hear so many tragic stories about the military, it’s nice to be doing something that’s sweet,’ Loughlin tells us. ‘It just makes you feel good.’ The film has her as a single mother whose son’s school project — writing letters to a serviceman — leads to a hunky sergeant showing up at their door.
‘A lot of things added up just right’ for Loughlin to make the movie, she says. ‘I thought it was a nice script. It fit in the window of my ‘90210’ hiatus. And it shot in California, so I could stay at home, which is always welcome,’ notes Loughlin, who has two young daughters with her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli.
