The college admissions scandal has been in the news for weeks, and it doesn't seem like the interest in the story is going to die down anytime soon. Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, along with Loughlin's husband Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested along with dozens of other parents, coaches, and college administrators in a massive cheating and bribe scandal a few weeks back. Of course, everyone's attention has been focused on Loughlin and Huffman, since we're familiar with them and their work. The fallout was swift - Loughlin was let go from Netflix's Fuller House and the Hallmark Channel, and her daughter Olivia Jade, a social media influencer, was dropped by several high-profile brands like Sephora and Tresemme. Loughlin and Olivia Jade have been laying pretty low since the scandal broke, and neither one has released an official statement. But according to sources close to Olivia, she's embarrassed by the entire thing, and is hoping she can one day rebuild her brand.
According to those close to Olivia, she's still angry with her parents and blames them for everything that happened. She's always been vocal about not wanting to attend college, choosing instead to focus on building her career. So she feels like her parents brought all of this onto her and ruined her plans. It should be noted that no mention has been made of Olivia's culpability in all of this; however, she did willingly pose for pictures on a rowing machine, which were used to fraudulently gain admission into USC as a recruit to the crew team.
The source claims that Olivia has said she never would have gone along with it if she'd known what was going to happen, which sounds like she knew what was going on all along.
For now, Olivia is laying low and spending time with close friends and her boyfriend, musician Jackson Guthry. She hasn't been home since the scandal broke, and is trying to figure out how she can rebuild her brand after the past few damaging weeks.
Meanwhile, her parents appeared in federal court in Boston last week, where they waived their right to a preliminary hearing and agreed to several pretrial conditions. They did not enter pleas, and the next court date has not been set.
