Bella Giannulli showered support for her sister Olivia Jade Giannulli on Monday at the “Dancing With the Stars” season 30 premiere.
“The last few years I’ve been wrapping up in a scandal,” the 21-year-old celebrated influencer said during the season’s first episode. “I did step back from social media and just soak in what everybody was saying. I’m not trying to pull a pity card, I just need to step forward and do better.”
Following a performance with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy, the camera moved to her 22-year-old sister Bella who poured her love and cheers for her from the stands.
In 2019, the girls’ parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were accused for their involvement in the college admissions issue. They were indicted for giving out bribes costing $500, 000 to make sure that their children can earn a slot at the University of Southern California. The two have faced detached prison sentences and complied with them after their guilty plea.
“I’m ready to put myself back out there and try new things,” the American YouTuber shared to Us Weekly and some members of the media. “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.”
She said that her 57-year-old mother has “been a huge support” on his journey.
“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,’” she said, as reported by US Magazine. “My sister has been telling me she wants to come to every single show.”
In compliance with the COVID-19 protocols, no audiences were allowed on season 29 of the DWTS. Audiences were meanwhile allowed this season but were only limited to family and friends of the celebrities.
