Olivia Jade Giannulli is preparing to make her big return to YouTube.
The daughter of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli has been inactive on the platform for over a year due to the highly publicized college admissions scandal involving her parents.
Prior to the controversy, Giannulli was a major social media influencer, with her beauty-focused YouTube channel boasting more than 1.8 million subscribers.
The 21-year-old social media star took to her Insta Story to reveal that she is finally ready to make her comeback.

“I genuinely just have the biggest smile on my face while editing. I’m starting to remember why I did this whole thing at 14. Brings genuine joy,” she shared.
“I’m v excited for this new chapter and also a little mind blown – you guys haven’t seen a vlog of mine since I was… 19.”
Giannulli first hinted that her silence may soon be broken in a pair of recent TikTok videos.
“Like this if I should bring back my #vlogzzzzz,” she wrote in the caption for one in which she dances around while showcasing a new look. “Also tried to show u guys this natural makeup look (I can do a tutorial if anyone wants) Kk bye ily.”

She then issued a second post, after a fan commented on the previous one. “Please post again on YouTube I love watching your videos!!!” the comment read.
“Thank you so much for the sweet comment,” she said in the video. “First of all, comments like this actually make my day and I’m so grateful. And, okay. I will. I guess I will come back to YouTube. What? Ah!”

Loughlin has been released from a federal prison in Dublin, California, where the “Full House” star completed her two-month sentence for paying a $500,000 bribe in order to gain her daughters’ admission into UCLA.
Meanwhile, Mossimo Giannulli is currently serving his own five-month sentence for his role in the scheme.
