"I've heard people post comments like," Well, kids don't watch the news. "Please. The news on television isn't the only place you know what's going on with the world, and if you believe that, you're old! Because young people don't depend on the news - my generation doesn't depend on it." on the news. I'm on my phone and on social media all the time, "she added.
theGrio previously reported that Loughlin, 58, and her fashion designer husband Mossinmo Giannulli, 57) were convicted by a federal judge in August for paying half a million dollars in bribes to their two daughters Olivia Jade, 21 and Isabella Rose to get, 22, into the University of Southern California. Loughlin, best known as Aunt Becky in the sitcom Full House, is serving a two-month sentence in a federal prison in Northern California, while Giannulli recently began his five-month sentence.
Olivia Jade appeared on Red Table Talk to speak to Banfield-Norris and co-hosts Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith about the aftermath of their parents' arrests. After the conversation, Banfield-Norris had the feeling that the young woman still had a lot to learn.
"There's just a lot of education that she has to do for herself," she said. "But I understand that this is the world they are in. Her life experiences haven't put her into the space where she really needs to take care of things like that. I don't really know how to go about this because it's about how you grew up and who you're exposed to. "

"I feel like here, [a] white woman who comes to black women for support when we don't get the same from them," she said. Banfield-Norris added: "Your stay here is the epitome of white privilege for me."
Loughlin reported to prison on October 30th. She is serving a two month sentence at FCI Dublin in Northern California.
Her husband is reportedly being held in isolation in a federal prison near Santa Barbara, California. He is serving a five-month sentence and is expected to be released in April.
