After being swept up in the college admissions bribery scandal that put her parents in jail, Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli is breaking her silence.
Pinkett Smith announced Monday that the YouTube star is scheduled to appear on Jada Pinkett Smith’s online talk show “Red Table Talk” on Tuesday.
Olivia Jade thought that the time had come to talk. Join us at the TOMORROW Red Table,’ tweeted Pinkett Smith.

When her “Full House” star mom and fashion designer dad were arrested in March 2019 along with other parents caught in a nationwide sting called Operation Varsity Blues,” the daughter of Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli was a top beauty vlogger with 1.9 million YouTube subscribers.
Loughlin and Giannulli paid $500,000 to get Olivia Jade, 21, and her older sister Isabella, 22, into the University of Southern California as fake rowing recruits, federal prosecutors said.
Cosmetics chain Sephora and hair care company TRESemmé dropped Olivia Jade from lucrative sponsorship deals in the aftermath of the arrests.
For months, she dropped out of the public eye and stopped attending USC.
In the meantime, her parents fought the charges for over a year until they finally caved and pleaded guilty last May.
Loughlin, 56, admitted that she had conspired to commit fraud via mail and cable. She was sentenced to two months behind bars in Dublin, Calif., on Oct. 30 and surrendered to prison authorities.
Giannnulli, 57, pleaded guilty to a more serious charge of mail and wire fraud conspiracy, and truthful mail and wire fraud services.
Last month, he was booked into a federal jail in Lompoc, Calif., to start serving a five-month term.
