The 21-year-old influencer shared a life lesson she learned in the wake of the controversy, which sent Lori and Massimo to jail.
In a TikTok, Olivia said that the lesson came from a “very inspirational woman.”
“We were talking about being publicly shamed and I was like, ‘Well, my situation doesn’t even compare, I’m not even going to start to compare it to yours,’” she recalled. “And she looked at me and said, ‘Olivia, it doesn’t matter if I’m drowning in 60 ft. of water and you’re drowning in 30, we’re both still drowning.’”
She adds, “I think about that quote every day because it’s so true and such a bigger message to our world right now. I think we’re all very quick to judge. I think we’re all very quick to put people down.”
“It’s important for people to know “if your feelings are hurting [and] if they’re valid to you, they’re valid,” Olivia went on. “It doesn’t matter if someone is going through worse, you’re allowed to have a hard time in this world,” she went on. “But that doesn’t take away from somebody else, and that shouldn’t take away from you. We’re all human beings.”
Lori was released from a federal prison after completing a two-month sentence for paying a $500,000 bribe in order to gain her daughters’ admission into UCLA. Massimo is currently still serving his five-month sentence.
