Olivia Jade Gives Tell All Interview on ‘Red Table Talk’

Influencer Olivia Jade appeared on “Red Table Talk” to finally discuss her experience amidst the recent college admissions scandal.

What Went Down 

After the story broke, the scandal led to prosecution that landed her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli in prison for two and five months, respectively. The two were both charged with counts of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.

Jade reports having not spoken to them since their sentencing, “I haven’t spoken to either of them- there’s a quarantine phase, but I’m not sure if that’s what it is,” she told Jada Pinkett Smith.

 She hopes that her mother’s time in prison will allow her to reflect. “She gets to really rethink what happened… and I think that will hopefully be a blessing.”

Her Reaction 

Olivia recounts the moment she found out, telling Jada “I just remember getting a call and it was like, ‘hey Liv have you talked to your mom? No, well I’ll just let you talk to her and call me back,’ so I searched my mom’s name, and- it’s everywhere. I remember freezing and feeling so ashamed, and hid myself for 3 or 4 months- I was too embarrassed.” 

She continues to admit to not understanding any wrongdoing in the beginning.

On Privilege

“When it first happened I was like, why is everyone complaining, I’m confused what we did- and that’s embarrassing to admit that I walked around my whole 20 years of life not realizing, like, you have insane privilege, you are the poster child of white privilege.”

Olivia received some pushback from Jada on this, questioning whether or not Olivia realizes why she, a Black woman, might not be impressed by this confession. 

“I don’t want pity, I don’t deserve pity, I just want the chance to recognize I messed up,” she responds.

An anonymous ET source says “Olivia has been wanting to get back in the limelight and share her side of things for some time now and is looking forward to getting back out there.”

Indeed, Olivia talks about returning to her internet career with a new perspective on the world.

“When I was on YouTube, it was all.. let’s go for my dream, and now I realize that there are big problems out there in the world that is outside my bubble and I’m so comfortable that I don’t have to go outside- but how much better of a person would you be if you used your blessings to help somebody else?”
