Lori Loughlin’s daughters didn’t get into USC on their own merit, and now it appears they won’t be returning to the school after the fraud that got them there was exposed to the public.
Olivia Jade, 19, and her sister, 20-year-old Isabella Rose — daughters of Full House star Lori Loughlin — both attended USC because their actress mother set up a $500,000 bribe to a fixer to get the two sisters into the university. That happened under the guise of phony profiles that listed them as competitive rowers, giving them fake spots on USC’s rowing team by fabricating credentials for the sport that didn’t exist.
The former Loughlin daughter — an Instagram influencer who was on the yacht of a USC board of trustees member when her Fuller House star mom was taken into federal custody — has already lost an endorsement deal with Sephora over the scandal. Loughlin, meanwhile, saw her Lifetime Original Movie empire come to an end as a result of the federal indictment.
And according to TMZ, both daughters won’t return to USC for fear of bullying from their fellow co-eds.
We’re told 19-year-old Olivia and 20-year-old Isabella have made the decision to withdraw from the University. Our sources say they have the full support of their parents, Lori and Mossimo Giannulli, both of whom have been indicted in the college bribery scandal.
Our sources say the family feels certain, if the girls went back to USC, they would be “viciously bullied.” So, the decision has been made.
From the outside it doesn’t appear that they were getting much schooling in at USC anyway, as Olivia had tweeted in the past that she didn’t “really care about school.” The exposing of how they got into USC, however, seems to have had a big impact on the former now-former Trojans.
Our sources say Olivia in particular “is a mess, despondent and feeling like it’s the end of the world.”
We’re told Olivia and Isabella will “lay low” and not try and enroll in another school … at least not for a long while.
Perhaps the sisters will finish what’s left of their education at Arizona State, as it was reported that they wanted to attend that school before their father insisted they go to a more prestigious school like USC. Their father, clothing designer Mossimo Giannulli (you know, Target department store Mossimo) said in an unsealed email that they needed to bribe their way “into a school other than ASU!”
Now, the Sun Devils may be a very sunny safety school once the dust settles on the largest admissions scandal in Department of Justice history.
