to me People magazine, Olivia Gide is focused on rebuilding her career, which has been fairly quiet since the scandal broke out last year. “She bears responsibility for her role in it. Everything she worked for has been suspended because of all this, but she wants to continue pursuing her passion. She is young. When she feels well, she wants to continue everything she was building before,” a source told the newspaper. Her path has not changed. “
Olivia Gide and her sister Isabella Rosa are reportedly struggling while Laurie and Musimo are in prison. A second source told People magazine, “It’s just a nightmare for them. They were so upset when they said goodbye to Lori. But now having their parents in prison at the same time is very upsetting.”
“They are very worried. They can’t wait for their mother to come home in December. They are trying to focus on this,” the source added.
Laurie went to jail in late October to serve her two-month sentence. Musimo followed suit a few weeks later to serve his five-month sentence.

According to court documents filed last year, Loughlin and Giannulli “agreed to pay bribes totaling $ 500,000 in exchange for their two daughters being appointed as recruits on the USC crew – despite the fact that they were not part of the crew – making it easier for them to accept USC.”
Loughlin and Giannulli were among 50 accused in the scandal last year. Almost two dozen parents have admitted guilt, including Felicity Hoffman.
