Olivia Jade Giannulli is opening up about how the now infamous college admissions scandal has affected her and her family. On an episode of her podcast, Conversations With Olivia Jade, she sat down with sister Bella to reflect on the experience and defend their mother, Lori Loughlin.
Referring to the 2019 bribery scandal as a “thingy thing with our family,” the two reflected on how the situation impacted their mental health and their relationship with their mother. “We both have a really clear perspective … we can just say we’re in the wrong,” the Dancing With the Stars contestant said.
“I don’t want that generic kind of topic to be twisted that I’m sitting here asking about mental health and what we went through the last few years and people saying, ‘Are they seriously complaining about this?’” “It’s not complaining,” Bella interjected. “You have to take what you’ve been through and learn from that. That’s what talking about it and working through it does.”
