AceShowbiz - Olivia Jade's sister Bella Rose Giannulli stopped by her podcast, "Conversations With Olivia Jade". Unsurprisingly, the siblings discussed their college admissions scandal that sent to their parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, to jail.
In the new episode, Bella talked about how the scandal impacted all of them, especially Olivia and their mom. "I think just the hardest part of this entire thing was watching how horrible the media was to both you and Mom and actually knowing you guys and knowing Mom has the biggest heart," she shared.
Bella added, "I think for me even though I also was getting dragged negatively, it didn't nearly affect me as much as Mom having all this thrown on her. And I think we can talk about this, that she really took this whole thing on her back, solely. There are a lot of people that were in this case and a lot of other parents and I do not know one other person's name."
Olivia also admitted that it was "frustrating" to read about their actress mom on media. Defending the "Fuller House" alum, the beauty blogger said, "It caused a lot of anger within me when I would read stuff about her. And I just think it's interesting that when I would read stuff about myself it affected me and I cared, but it didn't nearly affect me the same way that if I read it about mom."
Later in the episode, Bella recounted being followed by paparazzi from March to around December of 2019. Saying that there were at least three cars outside of her house waiting for one of them to leave, Bella shared, "Anytime I would leave the house, the second you pull out of that driveway, there's a car literally at the a** of your car. Bumper to bumper. They are right behind you. God forbid you have to slam on your breaks, you're done. You are getting in a car accident."
The scandal also affected her relationship with her boyfriend, noting that they broke up less than a week after the scandal broke. "It was hard because on top of being heartbroken, I was dealing with whatever it was that was going on with our lives," Bella divulged. "It was so early on at that point. We found out. The world found out. Got dumped four days later. It hadn't been a week yet."
"I remember I was like beating myself up about it at one point because I remember when it first all happened, I was talking to him," she explained. "So I was like, 'Oh, did I put too much on him? Did I scare him?' Then I looked back on it and, no. I was doing what you do when you have a boyfriend and you talk to them when you're scared and sad and you don't know what's going on."
She continued, "It was really hard to go through a breakup and then also have something even bigger and honestly more important on top of it because all I wanted to do was, like, cry and mourn my relationship and I couldn't."
