Olivia Jade wants to ‘move on and do better’ as she returns to YouTube after Lori Loughlin’s release from prison

Olivia Jade has returned to YouTube after her mother Lori Loughlin was released from prison following the college admissions scandal.

The YouTube star began her newest vlog, which is her first video in a year, by addressing the controversy.

She referred viewers to her interview with Jada Pinkett Smith on Red Table Talk if they ‘have any questions or anything to say.’

She later added in an ‘editor’s note’: ‘I didn’t want this to come across the wrong way […] I don’t mean to say that in a dismissive way or a pretentious way.

‘I think what I was trying to get across was that I felt like the thing I’ve wanted to do the most was apologise for so long and I felt like I got to do that at the red table, so although I can’t change the past, I can change what I do and how I act going forward.



‘I just didn’t want anyone to take it the wrong way and seem like I was being like, “I went on Red Table [Talk] and now my name’s cleared.” Like, no, that’s not it.

‘Just for my own mental sanity, I don’t want to keep rehashing things. I just want to move on and do better and move forward and come back and do what I love, which is YouTube.’

The 21-year-old YouTube star came under fire after her mother, Full House star Loughlin, was charged in the college admissions scandal.

The When Calls The Heart actress and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were two of the 53 people charged as part of a college admissions scam, organised by Rick Singer.

The couple were accused of paying Singer $500k (£408k) to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as members of the college rowing team, despite neither of the girls ever rowing before.

Loughlin, 56, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and also received a $150,000 (£122k) fine and two years probation.

She served two months in prison and was released last month. She will now have to perform 150 hours of community service.

Giannulli also pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and one count of honest services wire and mail fraud.

He is currently serving a five-month prison sentence. As part of his sentence, Giannulli will also pay a $250,000 (£225k) fine and will serve 250 hours of community service.



Singer pleaded guilty in March 2019 to facilitating cheating on college entrance exams and using bribery to secure the admission of students to colleges as fake athletic recruits.

Olivia previously addressed the controversy on Red Table Talk, saying: ‘We had the means to do something and we completely took it and ran with it. It was something that it was wrong.

‘It really can’t be excused. On paper, it’s bad — it’s really bad. But I think what a lot of people don’t know is my parents came from a place of just, “I love my kids I just want to help my kids — whatever is best for them — I worked my whole life to provide for my family”. I think they thought it was normal.’
