Wendy Williams airs disapproval of Olivia Jade Giannulli’s YouTube return 9 months after parents charged in college admissions scandal
In traditional Wendy fashion, the 55-year-old host aired her distaste for Olivia Jade by calling her “Lori Loughlin’s entitled stupid daughter.” Williams said, “Your parents rigged the system and your mom’s going to jail,” adding, “You waited 9 months. Too soon, little girl”
On Monday’s episode of ‘The Wendy Williams Show’, the daytime host went through a lot of things in her “Hot Topics” section before she came to Olivia Jade Giannulli, the American social media celebrity and YouTuber, widely known as just Olivia Jade. In traditional Wendy fashion, the 55-year-old host aired her distaste for Olivia Jade by calling her “Lori Loughlin’s entitled stupid daughter.”
Williams referred to Olivia breaking her silence nearly nine months after her parents, Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were indicted on charges related to the college admissions scandal -- bribing University of Southern California employees to get their daughters admitted and charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
In her video, Olivia said, “There’s no point in me just talking for 10 minutes to the camera about how I wish I could say something when I really can’t, so I’m gonna leave it at that. Thank you so much for your patience or if you’ve stuck around for nine months just waiting, I really appreciate it.”
She continued, “This is the best I can do and I want to move on with my life… It’s so hard because I’m not trying to make this about me or how I’ve been because that’s not the point of this.”
She further said, “Though I’m terrified to make this video and to come back, I know that I also want to start taking smaller steps in the right direction,” adding, “The moral of the story is, I’ve missed you guys so much and I’m just really excited to start filming again and to start uploading and I really hope you enjoy the vlog... Thank you for watching. I’ll see you soon.”
Williams was visibly displeased. She said, “She’s 20-years-old now. I don’t mean to call her stupid. I just don’t care.” She added, “Lock the mother up; daughter go away; and Mossimo, continue sewing those clothes.”
Speaking about Olivia’s YouTube channel -- she has 1.94 million subscribers -- Williams said, “They say she’s lost a lot of sponsorship, but I guess she’ll get them back. You know, privilege.” In a blunt fashion, Williams continued, “Your parents rigged the system and your mom’s going to jail,” adding, “You waited 9 months. Too soon, little girl.”
‘The Wendy Williams Show’ airs every weekday at 11 a.m. PT.
