Olivia Jade Giannulli has officially returned to YouTube nine months after the college admissions scandal first broke. The 20-year-old daughter of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli has kept a low profile since her family's involvement in the widespread admissions scam came to light. As her parents prepare for their upcoming court battle, Olivia Jade has decided it's time to revive her vlogging career.
In a short video titled "hi again," Olivia Jade did her best to address the college admissions scandal. "I know that it's something that needs to be addressed," she told her viewers, though she quickly added she "legally" can't get into details about the situation.
"A part of me is like, 'Should I come back to YouTube right now?' Because it's been so long, and I actually really, really miss it. Like, I genuinely, miss filming," she continued. "I feel like a huge part of me is just not the same, because this is something that I'm really passionate about and something I really like to do, but I also didn't know... I debated for seven or eight months, like, 'Well, if I can't talk about it, is there a point in coming back and not being able to say anything?'"
Ultimately, though, the lifestyle vlogger decided to "come back because I want to come back." She then reiterated that even though she's starting to vlog again, she won't be addressing the legal drama happening in her life. "There's no point in me just talking for 10 minutes to the camera about how I wish I could say something when I really can't. So, I'm going to leave it at that," she explained. "Thank you so much for your patience or if you stuck around for 9 months just waiting. I really appreciate it. This is the best I can do, and I want to move on with my life."
"I'm not trying to make this about more like, how I've been, because it's not the point of this. Though I'm terrified to make this video and to come back, I know that I also want to start taking smaller steps in the right direction for the people that have been DMing," she added. "Moral of the story is I've missed you guys so much, and I'm just really excited to start filming again and to start uploading and I really hope you enjoy the vlog."
While Olivia Jade is rebooting her career as a YouTube and Instagram influencer, her parents are gearing up for their court battle. They both face up 50 years in prison for their involvement in the scandal, however, legal experts believe they are likely to serve 2-3 years if found guilty.
