As the investigation of the college admissions scandal continues, more questions surface. Even though there are 30 parents involved in the scandal, none are getting as much attention as actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli. Their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose are attending the University of Southern California, where Loughlin and Giannulli paid $500,000 to have the girls admitted. Olivia Jade, the 19-year-old YouTube vlogger and influencer has been getting a lot of attention because of the scandal. But what about 20-year-old Isabella Rose? While not quite as infamous as her younger sister, she is still getting attention.
When it comes to college, the two girls could not be more different. Olivia Jade made it abundantly clear that she has no interest in attending college at all. Having already built her brand, she has almost two million followers on YouTube, and over a million followers on Instagram. Though she did use going to college as a way to increase her branding power by doing a dorm room tour and a partnership with Amazon.
However, from reports, Isabella actually enjoyed attending USC, and is genuinely sad about how this is all playing out. Isabella, who, according to Refinery29 wants to be an actress like her mom, was excited to be apart of USC's acting program. Even though she's already starred with her mom in two Christmas movies, Homegrown Christmas and Every Christmas Has A Story, she obviously wants to continue studying and working on her craft, which is admirable.
Because of the whole scandal and ensuing investigation, reports initially claimed that Isabella and Olivia Jade had withdrawn from USC. However, that is not the case. Right now, USC is not allowing any of the children whose parents are involved in the case to withdraw. Although their accounts are placed on hold, they are still technically students. But we do know that neither girl has attended school since March 1st.
They're both laying low on social media as well. R29 points out that Olivia Jade has apparently been using the "close friends" feature on Instagram stories to keep her friends updated. But Isabella Rose has set her account to private, and hasn't posted anything since the 1st.
