Lori Loughlin's Daughters Break Silence to Support Embattled Mother

by at .

It's been four months since the college admissions bribery scandal shocked the world and left numerous high-status families in disarray.

Deservedly or not, actress Lori Loughlin became the face of the scandal, and no matter the outcome of her upcoming trial, her role as a tabloid staple will likely continue to eclipse her acting career.

Unlike many of her famous co-conspirators, Loughlin did not accept a plea deal and is reportedly confident that she'll be cleared of all charges.

Legal experts say that's a longshot, and many have predicted that Loughlin will serve some time in prison.

And of course, Lori has already paid the price for her involvement with the damage done to her relationship with her daughters.

For months now, insiders have claimed that Loughlin is no longer on speaking terms with her youngest daughter, Olivia Jade Gianulli.

Both of Loughlin's daughters dropped out of school following their mother's arrest, but Olivia was hit hardest.

A successful Instagram influencer with a following in the millions, Olivia claimed that she never even wanted to go to college, and attended USC solely to make her parents happy.

When the admissions scandal broke, Olivia's public image suffered immensely, and both she and older sister Isabella went dark on social media.

Over the weekend, the sisters both broke their silence with posts honoring their mother on her birthday.

"Happy birthday mama. I love you," Olivia captioned the photo above.

The post came as a surprise to many, not only because it was Olivia's first in months, but also because she and Lori were still rumored to be on the outs.

The situation was so bad at one point that after dropping out of school, Olivia moved in with her boyfriend in order to avoid living with her parents.

"Olivia is furious with her parents and it's going to take a lot to repair their relationship," a source told Entertainment Tonight at the time.

"She blames them entirely and feels they have ruined her career."

The insider added:

"Everything that's going on with her parents is very stressful for her and she needs some space.

"She's doesn't feel that it's healthy for her to live with her parents right now."

So it sounds as though Lori has officially repaired her relationship with her daughter.

Unfortunately, that's just the first of many hurdles she'll need to clear in the months to come.
