The sisters' fashion house, The Row, and its parent company Dualstar were sued in 2015 in a class action suit by 185 unpaid interns over working conditions.
A long-standing lawsuit between Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s fashion house The Row and a group of 185 former unpaid interns has been settled to tune of $140,000, according to a new report by the New York Daily News’ Page Six column.
The 30 year old twins and former ‘Full House’ stars run a business empire worth an estimated $300 million. However, former design intern Shahista Lalani filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of a group of colleagues, saying that she was once overworked by their fashion house to the point of dehydration and hospitalisation.
“It was like 100 degrees outside. I’d just be sweating to death,” Lalani said about her experience working for The Row when she filed the suit back in the summer of 2015. “I probably carried like 50 pounds worth of trench coats.”

John Stamos was not impressed with the Olsen twins when they worked on ‘Full House’ with him. So much so that he even tried to have them sacked!
John Stamos pushed for the sacking of the Olsen twins from Full House, the 51-year-old actor admitted at a press conference on Thursday (6th August). Stamos’ attempt at having Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fired came to light when the preview of The Unauthorized Full House Story was published online earlier this week. The Lifetime movie is a dramatization of what allegedly went on behind the scenes during filming of the sitcom between 1987 and 1995.

The show will include mentions of Michelle Tanner, but that's about it.
Could the Full House reboot ever come close to the original? Not as far as the cast is concerned – Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who played Michelle Tanner in the original, have not signed on for Fuller House. But the reboot is still marching on, according to Us Weekly, and it will not ignore the character entirely. So says Jodie Sweetin, a.k.a. Stephanie Tanner, who told Us Weekly Michelle is not going to become she who must not be named.
Michelle Tanner will not make an appearance on Fuller House, but she will not become she-who-must-not-be-named either.
“It’s not like were not talking about her,” Sweetin said on Thursday. “I love and support [Mary-Kate and Ashley], and I think we’re going to be just fine.”

More nude photographs reportedly of another group of female celebrities have been leaked online. The latest victims of what appears to be the same group of hackers as the August leak include Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Avril Lavigne and Mary-Kate Olsen.
The FBI may be hot on the trail of the hackers (or so we hope) but that hasn't stopped what appears to be the perpetrators of 'The Fappening' from leaking yet more nude celebrity photographs.

The Olsen twins are back in the news with the announcement of Mary-Kate Olsens engagement, but what are the Olsens up to these days?
News that Mary-Kate Olsen is set to marry French banker Olivier Sarkozy has got us thinking about our favourite blonde twins and wondering what they’ve been up to lately. Other than getting engaged and attending fashion shows of course!
The Olsen twins have taken a step back from their original careers as actresses
Well, really the twins haven’t been up to much at all. Not in the way of their original vocation of acting at least. Mary-Kate hasn’t appeared onscreen since starring in 2011’s Beastly, a modern teenybopper take on the Beauty and the Beast fairytale, while twin sis starred as Kissing Girl #3 in 2009’s The Jerk Theory. Previously Ashley hadn’t done any acting since Olsen twin movie, New York Minute, which came out ten years ago in 2004. Can you believe it’s been that long?

Mary-Kate Olsen is engaged to French banker, Olivier Sarkozy. Are these two the strangest celebrity couple?
News that Mary-Kate Olsen is engaged to marry Olivier Sarkozy isn’t exactly what you’d call run of the mill. When we first heard that this pair were a ‘thing’ two years ago a collective “eh?” was issued around the world, but we’ve all eaten our words since because here they are, still happily together and headed for the chapel.
Mary-Kate is engaged to French banker, Olivier Sarkozy
At 44, Sarkozy is 17 years older than Olsen, and father to two children, aged 12 and 10. Had Mary-Kate not literally grown up on the screen, this pairing may not have been quite so unusual. We all have a habit of still thinking of the Olsen twins as the cute toddlers in Full House, so to hear that one of them is engaged to be married, and particularly to a man in his forties, is a little hard to digest, although it really shouldn’t be. In the grand scheme of couplings, 17 years is not really that big of an age gap.
Congratulations to the newly engaged MK!
Congratulations to Mary-Kate Olsen, who just got engaged to longtime boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy. The one half of the Olsen twins and her French banker boyfriend have been together for nearly two years, according to the folks over at Us Weekly, who originally published the announcement.
Mary-Kate has been together with Sarcozy for almost two years now.
44-year-old Sarcozy is the brother of French president Nicola Sarcozy and has been together with Olsen (27) since 2012. Since then, they've been a frequent presence at basketball games in New York City, where they live together in a $6.25 million townhouse. Not a bad way to start their life together. This will be Olsen’s first marriage, but Sarcozy has two children from his previous marriage to Charlotte Bernard. According to Us, Olsen gets along swimmingly with the kids and she fits right in to her new role of the non-evil stepmom.
