Lori Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, is all set to break her silence on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk. Smith recently welcomed Giannulli on the show, which will stream tomorrow (Tuesday, December 8th). Both of Giannulli's parents are currently serving short prison sentences after pleading guilty in the college admissions scandal. Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid fixer William "Rick" Singer $500,000 in bribes to get both Olivia Jade and their oldest daughter, 22-year old Isabella Rose, into the University of Southern California.
Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli were admitted into USC as recruits on the crew team, though neither of them have ever participated in the sport before. Both Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli originally plead not guilty to the charges against them, even as fellow actress Felicity Huffman plead guilty after being caught up in the same scandal. Huffman spent just under two weeks behind bars, while Loughlin is currently spending two months in prison and Giannulli is in for five months. Olivia Jade's appearance on Red Table Talk will mark the first time that she has spoken publicly about the situation.
In a preview for tomorrow's episode of Red Table Talk, Olivia Jade Giannulli says, "I've watched the show and I think you guys are all amazing and it feels really safe. But it also feels honest and it feels like we're gonna all lay it out here and it's gonna be, like, an open conversation." Olivia Jade went on to say she is finally ready to "publicly share my experience for the first time."
Jada Pinkett Smith also posted a preview for tomorrow's episode of Red Table Talk. "[Olivia Jade] is now breaking her silence after being caught in the middle of one of the biggest school bribery scandals," Pinkett Smith says. "Now that her parents Lori Laughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are serving short prison terms for their participation in the scandal... Olivia Jade felt it was time to speak." Pinkett Smith previously discussed infidelity with her husband Will Smith on the show, which brought a lot of attention to the honest form of the program and more than likely inspired Olivia Jade Giannulli to share her story for the first time.
Lori Loughlin is reportedly in constant contact with Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose while serving her time behind bars. "Lori's been communicating daily with her family and is trying her best to get acclimated to her new surroundings but she's ready to go home," claims a source close to the Giannulli family. The former Full House star is scheduled to leave prison on Sunday, December 27th, but could be released early due to a Bureau of Prison policy pertaining to weekend release dates. If all goes well for Loughlin and her family, she will be out on Friday, December 24th. You can check out a preview of Red Table Talk above, thanks to Olivia Jade Giannulli's Instagram account.
