Olivia Jade Breaks Silence on “Varsity Blues” Scandal

Olivia Jade, the daughter of actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Gianulli, chose Facebook’s Red Table Talk to open up about the USC college admissions scandal that put her parents behind bars.

Jade apologized for “contributing to these social inequities” saying she didn’t realize it at the time adding “this was wrong, you need to talk about this publicly because the situation was public and then you need to move forward and do better.”  

Red Table Talk host Adrienne Banfield-Norris wasn’t quite ready to move on. “I feel like here we are, white woman coming to black women for support when we don’t get the same from them.”

Co-host and actress Jada Pinkett-Smith responded with “I understand what you’re saying but I never want to be the thing that was done to me by white women.”

The 21-year old Jade, described as a Lifestyle and Beauty influencer, says she now realizes the “insane privileges” she had, calling herself “the poster child of white privilege.”

Jade’s parents were accused of paying a half million dollars to get their daughters into USC as crew recruits despite the fact that neither had any competitive rowing experience.

Her mother, Loughlin, is expected to be released from a California prison by the end of the year. Gianulli could be jailed until April, 2021.
