Olivia Jade Giannulli revived her YouTube channel after a two-year hiatus on Thursday (January 21). The 21-year-old beauty influencer stayed off the platform throughout her parents' legal battle. Both Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were sentenced to prison—two and five months, respectively—for their involvement in the college admissions scandal.
In the beginning of her comeback video, Olivia Jade addressed the scandal for the second time. "I think if you have any questions for me or you have anything to say or you're like, 'Why are you back,' you can go watch that interview," Olivia said of her appearance on Red Table Talk, where she first addressed her family's involvement in the scam. "I think I kind of disclosed what I thought I needed to say on there."
The video then cut to another day when Olivia Jade was editing her vlog. "Hey quick little editor's note, because I didn't want this to come up across the wrong way and I'd just rather say something and make the video look a little weird," she said. "I don't mean to say that in a dismissive way or a pretentious way. I think what I was trying to get across is that I felt like the thing I wanted to do the most is apologize for so long and I felt like I got to do that at Red Table. And so although I can't change the past, I can change how I act and what I do going forward. I just didn't want anybody to take it the wrong way and it seemed like I was being like, 'I went on Red Table and now my name is cleared.' Like no, that's not it."
"But just for my own mental sanity, I don't want to keep rehashing things," she continued. "I just want to move on and do better and move forward and come back and do what I love, which is YouTube. So you don't have to watch. Nobody's forcing you. But I didn't want that to be misread, okay? Enjoy."
The vlog also featured a series of throwback clips, which included brief cameos from Lori and Mossimo before their prison sentences. In Lori's cameo, she can be seen dancing around the kitchen with her daughter.
The rest of the vlog follows Olivia Jade's daily routine in the apartment she shares with her sister Isabella Giannulli. Throughout the video, Olivia Jade brews coffee, prepares a salad, and trying a new skincare product. She also shows off her new German Shepherd puppy named Milo.
"It is true. Like, when you do stuff you love and that makes you happy and you like, can feel that physically, it's crazy," Olivia Jade reflects at the end of the video. "Thank you guys so much for watching. I love you all. I'll see you in my next one.
