"Everything will be fine so long as you win," replies one of the girls. "Olivia Jade gained followers when her mom went to jail."

Sharing a video of herself watching the scene to her TikTok page, the social media influencer shook her head and furrowed her brow as she held her hand up to her temple. "No, I didn't," she said in reference to the "gained followers" remark.

Last year, Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy charges after being accused of paying half a million dollars to scam mastermind William "Rick" Singer to ensure Olivia Jade and her 22-year-old sister, Isabella Rose Giannulli, would be accepted to the University of Southern California as fake crew team recruits.

The 56-year-old actress was sentenced to two months in prison and served her time at the correctional facility in Dublin, California. She was released on Dec. 28, just two days shy of her official release date.

As for Giannulli, the 58-year-old designer was released early on April 2 and sentenced to serve the remainder of his five-month sentence under home confinement, which he completed later that month.

Last month, the embattled couple jetted off to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for their first getaway post-scandal.

As Radar previously reported, a judge gave Lori and Mossimo permission to leave the country from June 16 to June 21 for a court-approved "family vacation," but their daughters were nowhere in sight.
