In this clip from an August 2017 interview, Full House actress Lori Loughlin claims she never pushed her daughters Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli to get straight A's and encouraged them to do their best. Loughlin later admitted that her daughters were feeling pressured before she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly bribed USC to let their children in. #LoriLoughlin #OliviaJade #BellaGiannulli #scam #scandal #college From 'Lori Loughlin on pushing her kids in 2017 interview: ‘We were never those parents' - https://pagesix.com/2019/03/13/lori-loughlin-on-pushing-her-kids-in-2017-interview-we-were-never-those-parents/ “You know, I don’t ever do, I never pushed my kids to — I always say, ‘Do the best you can,’” the actress told Page Six in a 2017 interview. “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, agreed with her mom’s sentiments in the video. Prosecutors revealed on Tuesday that they planned to indicted more than 40 people in the “largest college admissions scam ever,” with Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, on their list. The couple 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,” according to the court documents. Ironically, Loughlin gushed over 20-year-old Isabella Rose and 19-year-old Olivia Jade’s acceptances in a “Today” show interview after the scheme was successful. Giannulli appeared in court on his conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud charges Tuesday, while Loughlin was expected to surrender on her charges Wednesday. She was filming in Vancouver when the feds came looking for her. Page Six is your source for celebrity news, gossip, entertainment, pop culture, photos, video and more.
