Bella Giannulli shared an Instagram update where she apparently spent New Year’s Eve with a friend amid her mother, Lori Loughlin’s prison drama.

The Homegrown Christmas actress seemed joyful during the celebrations, as evidenced by the photos. In the first snap, she was standing beside her friend, gazing into the camera while smiling. Christmas trees with lights and a pool were seen in the background.

In the second picture, she did a silly pose as she stuck out her tongue sideways, while her companion was smiling up at her. In the backdrop, a big dinosaur head was visible.

The Alone Together actress wore a dark gray pullover, while her friend wore a light gray Champion hoodie. She wore minimal makeup that included groomed brows, mascara, blush, and highlighter. It also seems like she had her nails done, although the exact color of her nail polish was not clear.

In the caption, Bella mentioned that her friend was the one who urged her to wear a “Jack Skellington onesie” for New Year’s Eve.

The latest update earned more than 21,000 likes within 22 hours of being live. There were only seven comments, as it appears she changed her privacy settings to limit the number of people who can leave comments.

“Goth PJ’s are always a good idea,” one person wrote on the post.

“I miss your face,” another Instagram user added.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr on January 1, Bella’s mom, Lori Loughlin, has purportedly been studying martial arts as she prepares to defend herself in prison. Loughlin’s sentence came after the charges that she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 in bribes for their two daughters’ admission to the University of Southern California.

In November 2019, Bella and her sister Olivia were bombarded by the media about the college admissions scandal. Neither of the two sisters has made any public statements regarding the scandal since the news broke — not even when Olivia came back to YouTube last month.

Although reports have revealed that Bella and Olivia are standing by their parents and that they have each other’s backs no matter what, it was also revealed that the sisters could grow closer to one another as a result of the same traumatic struggles they are currently facing. In regard to opening up their friends, inside sources say that they remain tight-lipped about the issue and that they are not yet ready to open up to anybody.
