Olivia Jade Giannulli is speaking.
The 21-year-old influencer was caught up in her parents’ drama when her mother Lori Loughlin and father Mossimo Giannulli were linked to the college admissions scandal, working to bribe their daughters into college.
Since news of her involvement broke, Olivia Jade has been relatively quiet, once she publicly explained that legal requirements prevented her from speaking publicly on the matter.
Late last year, she opened up about the scandal during an episode of “Red Table Talk,” though many thought she did little to repair her image.

“We were talking about … being publicly embarrassed and I was like, ‘Well my situation doesn’t even compare, I’m not going to start comparing it to yours,” she said. “She looked at me and said, ‘Olivia, it doesn’t matter if I’m drowning in 60 feet of water and you’re drowning 30. We’re both still drowning.’
Olivia Jade did not reveal the identity of the “very inspiring woman.”
“I think about that quote every day because I think it’s very true and it’s a bigger message to our world right now,” the social media personality continued. “I think we are all very quick to judge, I think we are all very quick to put people down and I just want people to remember: if your feelings hurt you or if they are valid for you, they are valid.”

She added: “It doesn’t matter if someone is going through something worse, you are allowed to have a difficult time in this world. But that doesn’t take away from anyone else and that should take away from you. Human beings.”
