The family has slowly overcome the scandal. Lori has already made her acting comeback: She filmed season two of When Hope Calls, a spin-off of the Hallmark Channel series When Calls the Heart, reprising her role of Abigail Stanton.

Olivia returned to YouTube, her main social media platform, in January—a month after she broke her silence about her parents’ indictments on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s show Red Table Talk, during which the influencer apologized “for contributing to the social inequality” and dubbed herself a “poster child of white privilege.” This fall, Olivia competed on Dancing With the Stars, placing eighth with partner Val Chmerkovskiy.
