John Stamos was on a podcast last month and talked about that time when he had a full-grown “have [no] mercy” man-trum while filming the very first episode of Full House and demanded that barely-year-old babies, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, get fired for crying. But since he basically called the replacement babies fug and awful, the Olsen Twins made their return which eventually launched them into straight-to-VHS kid stardom. As such, adult Mary-Kate and Ashley turned John down a few years ago when he asked them to return for the Fuller House reboot on Netflix, probably because they’re reclusive, already super rich, and knew the show would be a huge, stinking, even-cornier-than-the-original turd. And apparently, John’s fits haven’t evolved much since 1987 because he was just on another podcast and said he was visibly, publicly pissed at them for sitting the show out. However, John says he and the twins ended up hashing it out after coming together to mourn the untimely death of their co-star, Bob Saget.
On a recent episode of the podcast, Good Guys, John Stamos revealed that he got Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen briefly fired from Full House. According to Variety, the twins were booted when they were just 11 months old during production for the very first episode. John explains that he and Dave Coulier were trying to film a scene where they change Michelle’s diaper, but both baby actors wouldn’t stop crying. Babies? Crying?? Groundbreaking. But Uncle Jesse wasn’t having it, and he ordered the Powers That Be to “get rid of them.”
Ashley Olsen and her twin, Mary-Kate Olsen, are noted Hollywood recluses–unless they’re popping up in the news to remind us that they’re Hollywood recluses or one’s getting secret married or messily divorced. This time, Ashley, who’s one-half of Michelle Tanner and The Row fashion collection, got secret-married to Louis Eisner, an artist and the son of two mega-rich people. The Bel-Air ceremony was small and private, and I would wager a guess there wasn’t a dry eye or healthy lung in the house.
As we are frequently reminded, Dax Shepard has a podcast. And on the most recent episode of Armchair Expert, he dropped the bombshell that he dated Ashley Olsen “15 or 16 years ago.” Math tells us this was around 2006/2007, when a now 47-year-old Dax would have been in his early thirties, and 35-year-old Ashley was 19 or 20. She also would have been blonde back then, so clearly Dax has a thing for blondies measuring five-foot-one-inch (see: wife Kristen Bell). Continue reading
Yesterday, America’s Dad Bob Saget died suddenly at the age of 65. Bob was found in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, FL where he was in the middle of a stand-up tour. Almost immediately, tributes began pouring in, the general vibe of which was that Bob Saget was an incredibly kind person with a huge heart. And so it should come as no surprise that tons of famous types and comedians, and especially his former Full House family, have spoken out about losing Bob after learning of the news of his death.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are known for not really being in the public too much. But well, the Olsens recently did a lengthy interview with i-D Magazine and talked about their private lifestyles and why they don’t really put their faces forward so much as the designers of their fashion collection, The Row. They want the clothes to be front and center and not take attention, but I think the actual reason is that they know the peasants will one day revolt, and when they do the twins want it to be harder for them to identify who was out here charging $40,000 for messy purses.
