Olivia Jade Giannulli said her mom, Lori Loughlin, is already in “total mom mode” over the YouTuber’s upcoming stint on “Dancing With the Stars.”
“My mom’s been a huge support,” Giannulli, 21, told journalists at a press event Wednesday. “She’s in total mom mode, like, ‘Make sure you take an Epsom salt bath.’ She’s trying to get me to take an ice bath! I’m like, ‘I don’t need an ice bath yet!’ My sister [Bella] has been telling me she wants to come to every single show.”
ABC confirmed Wednesday morning that the influencer would be a part of the show’s upcoming 30th season after she was spotted at rehearsals earlier this month.
“I think it’s such an incredible opportunity. I’m ready to put myself back out there and try new things,” she said. “I’m really excited to challenge myself and put myself outside my comfort zone, which I don’t do often. So, it just all happened, and I’m just letting the universe take over and see what happens and living it day by day.”
Giannulli previously stepped out of her comfort zone by attempting to attend the University of Southern California as a rowing recruit despite having zero experience with the sport, a technicality which Loughlin, 56, and husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to sidestep.
Olivia Jade’s sister, Bella, 22, was also a beneficiary of her parents’ effort, for which the former “Full House” star did two months behind bars before being sprung in December. Mossimo, 58, was allowed to serve the final days of his five-month sentence under house arrest and was picked up by his family from the clink in April.
Loughlin and the fashion designer subsequently spent time this summer vacationing in Mexico and California.
Olivia Jade will be dancing alongside other ripped-from-the-2020-headlines names like “Bachelor” Matt James, late Broadway star Nick Cordero’s widow and “The Talk” co-host Amanda Kloots, JoJo Siwa and Megan Fox’s estranged husband, Brian Austin Green.
