For months, Bella and Olivia Jade Giannulli have been dreading the holiday season, knowing that their parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli would be locked up behind bars for their roles in the college admissions scandal. The couple was charged with fraud for paying $500,000 to help get their two daughters into USC by falsely portraying them as rowing recruits.

But sources tell OK! that the sisters have been finding ways to cope. "Bella and Olivia are trying their best to stay positive," shares an insider, adding that both girls have been in contact with their parents. (Loughlin, 56, is expected to wrap up her two-month sentence just before Christmas, while Giannulli, 57, recently began his five-month stint.)

While their lavish lifestyles have sparked some backlash, the sisters don't seem to care. "Bella and Olivia know people think they're more spoiled than ever, but they're saying, the hell with them," notes the source.
