Adrienne Banfield-Norris spoke about why she was so against Olivia Jade taking part in the “Red Table Talk” and said in a new interview that she was “frustrated” with the whole experience.
Two weeks later Olivia Jade Giannulli‘s controversial episode aired by Red Table Talk, Adrienne Banfield-Norris (aka “Gammy”) explains why she was so “frustrated” to see her there. Lori Loughlin and Mossimo GiannulliThe 21-year-old daughter was on the Facebook Watch show to speak to her daughter Adrienne about her role in the college admissions scandal Jada Pinkett-Smithand granddaughter Willow Smith – and she wasn’t really buying her regrets.
“It was frustrating, but at the end of the day I felt like people understood how I was feeling,” Adrienne, 67, said on the December 23rd episode of the Keep It podcast. While she felt that Olivia “handled the situation well,” the beauty vlogger could have been more sensitive to other people’s views, especially those injured during the scandal. “There were some things that were a little frustrating,” she explained. “As a 21-year-old young adult, I felt that she needed to be a lot more aware of what was going on in the world, and that was a little frustrating.”
“I heard people make comments like, ‘Well, kids don’t watch the news,” Adrienne said. “Please. The news on TV isn’t the only place you know what’s going on with the world, and if that’s what you think, then you’re old! Because young people don’t rely on the news – my generation doesn’t rely on the news. I’m on my phone and on social media all the time. “

Adrienne was very vocal about Olivia being featured on Red Table Talk for a “redemption story”. She even said during the interview that she “fought with all her might” to invite her to the show. “Your stay here is the epitome of white privilege,” Adrienne said to Jada and Willow. Olivia was there to break her silence about her parents’ prison sentences; Lori is currently doing two months and Mossimo five months for paying $ 500,000 in bribes to bring both her and older sister Isabella Giannulli to the USC as crew team members (no daughter has ever rowed) .
Olivia said she wasn’t sure what was going on. However, she posed for photos on a rowing machine and submitted them to college. She stated on the Red Table Talk that she did not understand that what her parents were doing was wrong; Believing that they would only donate to university, she argued that she had her ass off in high school to get into USC. However, she got out because it is now clear that she “didn’t belong there”.
“There’s just a lot of education [Olivia] have to do for yourself, “Adrienne said on Keep It.” But I understand that this is the world they are in. Her life experiences have not brought her into the space where she really has to worry about such things. I don’t really know how to go about this because it’s about how you grew up and who you are exposed to. “
