This clip from an August 2017 interview, Full House actress Lori Loughlin talks about how she doesn't believe in pushing her daughters Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli to get good grades
Loughlin eventually revealed later that her daughters were 'feeling pressured' before she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly bribed to get their children in USC.
“For my husband too, their dad, never we were never like, ‘At school you got to get straight A’s.’ We were never those parents. We were always like, ‘You know what? Give it your all. Do the best you can ’cause in life if you give it your all and you do the best you can, that’s it. That’s all you can do.’ And that’s enough, in my opinion, especially with kids. I think we’ve put so much pressure and stress on them. A lot of it is unnecessary and I think it’s important to just have downtime, free time. I never over-scheduled my kids. Never. I always gave them plenty of time to just sit in their playroom and, you know, use their imaginations.”
Isabella Rose, her older daughter, seemed to agree with her mom in the video.
FBI and prosecutors plan to indict over 40 people in the “largest college admissions scam ever,”
According to the court documents, both Lori and Mossimo allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC,”
Loughlin also was happy that her daughters, 20-year-old Isabella Rose and 19-year-old Olivia Jade were both accepted into prestigious universities on a “Today” show interview.
