Giannulli Talks About Her Mom

“My mom’s been a huge support,” Giannulli, 21, told reporters on Wednesday, according to Page Six.

“She’s in total mom mode, like, ‘Make sure you take an Epsom salt bath.’ She’s trying to get me to take an ice bath! I’m like, ‘I don’t need an ice bath yet!’ My sister [Bella] has been telling me she wants to come to every single show.”

Giannulli went on to talk about how excited she is to take part in the ABC reality television show’s 30th season.

“I think it’s such an incredible opportunity. I’m ready to put myself back out there and try new things,” she said. “I’m really excited to challenge myself and put myself outside my comfort zone, which I don’t do often. So, it just all happened, and I’m just letting the universe take over and see what happens and living it day by day.”

Loughlin’s Scandal 

Giannulli became a household name after her parents, Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested and charged with paying $500,000 in bribe money to have her and her sister admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.

Loughlin ultimately served two months in prison for her crimes, while her husband served five months.

Olivia Jade Giannulli had been a popular Instagram and YouTube influencer prior to her family’s scandal. She reportedly hopes that her stint on “DWTS” will help her rebuild her image. It remains to be seen if that will happen.
