Olivia Jade Giannulli worries that she’s going to ‘get cancelled again’


Olivia Jade Gianulli is lucky she didn’t get charged with a federal crime. Olivia definitely committed crimes, but it’s more than likely that she was 17-years-old at the time, and she was committing crimes at the behest of her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, as part of a scheme to falsify her way into college. When it became clear that the feds were only interested in prosecuting Lori and Mossimo, Olivia decided that the best course of action was to stay silent… for the most part. If Kris Jenner had been in charge, Olivia would have walked out of the scandal with a deal for a reality show and at least three major sponsorships, but here we are. Currently, Olivia is a has-been college dropout on Dancing with the Stars. And she’s still dumb as a box of hair – she just lamented cancel culture, because THAT is what she thinks happened to her.

Olivia Jade has waltzed back into the public eye after making her comeback on Dancing With the Stars—but she’s still “scared” of another scandal. Her mom Lori Loughlin has served out her jail sentence relating to the college admissions scheme and is soon returning to television with When Hope Calls. Her 22-year-old daughter is also back in the spotlight on the ABC dancing show, but according to Olivia Jade, she still gets “so nervous” because of cancel culture.

“I’m so hesitant to talk about it because of the trauma,” she said on her new iHeart Radio podcast, Conversations with Olivia Jade. “‘Oh gosh, if I say this or if it comes off kind of the wrong way, am I gonna get cancelled again?’ It really does leave such an impression in one’s mind. I feel like I walk on eggshells when I talk, just because I don’t want to say the wrong thing, and I want to make it clear to people listening that, like, I’m not trying to victimize myself.”

Olivia said she also understands “how different of a person I’ve become because of it—and not entirely in a good way sometimes.” She feels like she has “way harder days” or is “way harder on myself” than she was before.

“I’m so scared of looking up my name and something bad is happening, and I’m the face of it. And it’s going to be this big thing that blows up in my face again,” Olivia shared.

She said the backlash has made her live her life a little bit differently or even “shut down” altogether. “You kind of start to believe what people are telling you. Like, you don’t deserve a second chance and there is no room for growth,” she went on. “You feel like, not to sound super dark, but how do you bounce back then? Because I want to be alive. I still want to grow up.”

[From E! News]

What happened to Olivia and her family is NOT “being cancelled.” Lori and Mossimo both did time in federal prison! Olivia was dangerously close to being charged for the crimes she committed! None of that is being cancelled. “If I say this or if it comes off kind of the wrong way, am I gonna get cancelled again?” You were in the middle of a criminal federal investigation!! Imagine if other criminals and criminal co-conspirators spoke this way. What if mobsters were like “omg, the feds are trying to cancel me!” I remember when Jimmy Hoffa was cancelled. Ken Lay was also cancelled and it was terrible for him! Bernie Madoff too.

    “I’m not trying to victimize myself.” Dumb as a box of hair, indeed.

    • Jules says:

      This ranks up there with the “I’m a real feminist” quote from yesterday. These social justice warriors are just so freaking cute. Eyeroll.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      hey now! give her a break! she’s TRAUMATIZED, the poor little poppet. it’s hard to be a lazy entitled do-nothing whose mummy and daddy broke rules to get her into college.

      (in case that wasn’t clear…/S)

      PS if that’s the caliber of “star” that’s on Dancing with the Stars, they need to rename that crap.

    • Mustang Sally says:

      I didn’t understand why she was “un-cancelled” in the first place.

  2. Mina_Esq says:

    Love your comments about Kris. It’s funny because it’s true lol And Olivia is one of the dumbest online personalities. She has zero self-awareness. I hope she doesn’t push her way back into the spotlight, and that we don’t have to see stories about her.

    • Mac says:

      If Kris had been in charge Olivia would have made millions selling sexy orange jumpsuits and prison striped leggings.

  3. kelleybelle says:

    Just the sight of this entitled, over-surgeried airhead is irksome. She doesn’t add a single thing to the world. Shame.

    • claire says:

      That is Crissy Tiegen level. Why dont you just tell her she’s worthless and to go off herself?

      • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

        Kelleybelle made an apt observation. She didn’t tell OG to off herself, now, did she? Instead, she detailed how a clueless (and indeed over-surgeried) young woman adds nothing of value to the current conversation, because she is so spectacularly lacking in self-awareness that she can’t see that she’s wholly in the wrong.
        What you just did here is called false equivalence. Listen, look it up and learn.

      • Jules says:

        Not even close to Teigen, yet look at what YOU wrote.

  4. Merricat says:

    Maybe she shouldn’t look up her name.

  5. remarks says:

    She’s not articulate, but she sounds like she has some self-awareness, unlike her parents. She has established generational wealth to make her feel better and continue on in life without any dent to her income streams, but she recognizes she’s not perceived well because of the scandal.

    I don’t think her parents understand anything at all. She at least seems aware that rich people can look like jerks when they don’t follow the rules. Maybe her youth helps in this case. I could see her parents making another mistake again (tax evasion or something like that), but she seems like she’d want to be cautious because she knows she’d look like an idiot otherwise.

    • Esmerelda says:

      Let’s face it, she was raised in a very image focused and superficial environment by parents who evidently had no great values
      and who thought nothing about making her complicit in a federal crime for vanity reason.
      She very probably has very little tools to understand and process what happened and how it reflects on her… I think she is not very intelligent to begin with, but she was served poorly by her family. I hope she can find a decent mentor and grow up a bit for real

      • The Recluse says:

        If her parents had truly focused their children on getting a worthwhile and useful education, she’d be in a much better place. And she wouldn’t say such dumb, whiny things.

  6. OliviaJoy says:

    I still don’t like her or care about anything her or her ridiculous parents do. Why don’t they all just stay out of the limelight like the older sister Bella did.

  7. Grant says:

    I’m sorry, she lost me at her mention of “trauma.”

  8. Gracie says:

    So is she currently dating Scott Disick or is she slated for next year?

  9. Lululu says:

    Cry me a river, Olivia Jade.

  10. Case says:

    My likely very unpopular opinion is that I expected to hate her on Dancing with the Stars but I find her to be genuinely sweet, hard-working (she’s a great dancer!) and seemingly quite self-aware. The fact is, her parents are idiotic criminals who pushed her into something they wanted for her by any means necessary when she was 17. Given what I’ve actually seen of Olivia now on her own, I’m unwilling to judge her based on her parents’ horrible actions.

    • canichangemyname says:

      LOL I allow this opinion and co-sign. I haven’t seen her on DWTS but she’s young, her parents are morons, I’m willing to give her a pass for now. None of us can control who our parents are. Just from what I read, she wasn’t particularly interested in going to college anyway, and I do remember that pressure to a lesser extent. (My mom was so irritated that I didn’t go to UGA because “they have a good football team” – eye roll). I’m not mad at her moving forward, and I hope she’s learned a real lesson. Her parents spoiled the sh!t out of her, but I’m willing to wait it out and see if she brings anything real to the table.

    • Kristen says:

      I agree. I’ve been watching on DWTS and she comes across very well. Sweet, unassuming and she is truly an amazing dancer. The entire family has been through hell, the parents spearheaded it. She was a child and victimized by the advice of her parents. I wish all of them well and to move forward and do better, just like every human needs to do better.

    • remarks says:

      Her dancing isn’t bad. I half-wondered why her parents didn’t stick her in dancing and maybe she could have landed some kind of dance scholarship. She seems willing to put the effort into things she’s interested in.

      She’s business-savvy with her makeup and Youtubing. Over time, she probably would have wanted to go to some kind of business school to advance her business if her parents hadn’t pushed USC on to her. Someone like her has a lot of options and can take her time with things so, except for the bragging rights to other parents, I have no idea why they were so pushy about the USC thing. She eventually might have studied something relevant t move her income streams along, but maybe not on the regular timeline as everyone else (18-22). And the majors these days are quite varied, so I’m sure there’s some major that would have come to eventually suit her in her late 20s or thereafter.

    • MarcelMarcel says:

      I agree. Although I felt that way after seeing her Red Table Talk interview. Plus I liked how they included Adrienne Banfield-Jones‘ critique of Olivia asking to be at the red table. I’d assume she had to agree from uncensored reactions from Adrienne, Jada and Willow before she sat at the table.
      In a weird way this scandal might be one of best the thing that happens to her. If her parents and her got away with it she’d still be completely blinded by privilege.
      She seems sweet and like she’s willing to do the work. If she commits to doing that work she could do some interesting stuff with her platform.

  11. Kelly Sunshine says:

    I’m torn on how to feel about this girl. I actually quite like her on DWTS.

    Her parents led her astray and she made very poor choices to go along with the scheme to get her in to college. I wish she’d make better choices now.

    She led such a privileged life that most of us would only dream of having, but she’s doing nothing to better herself and grow as a human being. She needs to DO SOMETHING with her life, instead of whining about being ‘cancelled’, how about completing university, even if she has to do it online or go to school part-time, prove that she actually does care about getting an education and wasn’t really in college for the partying.

    • remarks says:

      She does content creation and vlogging, which I see a lot of university students doing. I don’t think she’s really doing anything different from other kids her age, minus being in college. Since her parents are in the entertainment industry, I don’t think her trajectory of making content is actually a waste of time. It’s just a different skill set that isn’t academic.

      I don’t think she needs to prove she cares about an education though. If she doesn’t like being in school, she might as well spend her time doing her vlogging and whatever else. I don’t think school is where her talents lie, for now. She’s shown she’s not good at studying, and if she doesn’t want to pursue that, I don’t think she should be pushed into it. Otherwise, she’d probably be cheating on her tests to get through, and we’d find her in the news again.

  12. Cait says:

    Just attention seeking behavior . Even when she is at fault she is still somehow some way the true victim. You see how white women turn on the tears even when they are dead wrong and get POC but particularly black people in a load of trouble. That pathology is apparently so ingrained that some of them play the victim card whenever

  13. Maria says:

    I’m howling @ the idea of mobsters being worried the Feds will cancel them. Cancel culture sent Al Capone all the way to Alcatraz!!
    Completely delusional about herself and the fact she was helping to commit a CRIME, this wasn’t some set of misguided tweets or something.

  14. Julia K says:

    Put down the wineglass, turn off the camera and get yourself a job.

    • AmyB says:

      LMAO – agreed!! I cannot stand this idiot!! She very much knew what her parents were doing, and is lucky as ALL HELL she did not end up in jail. Listening to her playing the victim or speaking about “trauma” makes me lose brain cells. How about you talk to people who have actually experienced “REAL” trauma??? People who have been physically or sexually abused, abandoned as a child, been born into a family with addicts as parents, have PTSD from war or other horrible situations…on and on.
      OR….Like the students who actually worked their ass off in high school for exceptional grades, were All-Star athletes, top of their class, and then got DENIED b/c of your lying ass! Just STFU!

      This is someone that deserves to be cancelled, or at least needs to go away for a long time to self-reflect, take accountability, and grow up!

  15. ME says:

    It’s funny she thinks she was ever even cancelled. If that was the case, she wouldn’t be on DWTS right now. No one actually gets cancelled…especially not skinny pretty White girls who make their money doing YouTube (and other places like TikTok) videos. The world seems to love them the most. I mean how did she get famous in the first place? She’s just the pretty daughter of an actress. That’s all it takes now a days.

  16. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I got nothing.

  17. Mimi says:

    She’s just the daughter of Becky from full house. Nothing less- nothing more. Go get a job like the rest of us 🙄

  18. Lizzie says:

    I cannot watch DWTS while this little liar is on.
