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.”

A group of 40 current and former interns is suing the Dualstar Entertainment Group for appropriate compensation, arguing that they were putting in 50-hour weeks and performing exactly the same tasks as paid employees at the company, thus making them wrongly classified as being exempt from minimum wage legislation.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been confirmed as not returning for the Netflix reboot.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may have decided they wont be moving to John Stamos’ ‘Fuller House’ on Netflix, but that doesn't mean Michelle Tanner will be forgotten. Speaking to US Weekly, Jodie Sweetin, who played older sister Stephanie on the original series, said that Michelle Tanner will "still have a presence" on the show.
Mary-Kate and Ashley are not returning for ‘Fuller House’.
"The Michelle character is still going to have a presence. It's not like were not talking about her," Sweetin said. ”I love and support [Mary-Kate and Ashley], and I think we're going to be just fine.” Sweetin also revealed that filming on the new series was set to begin next month.
The twins will not be reprising their role as Michelle Tanner for the Netflix reboot.
Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen will not be a part of the upcoming ‘Full House’ reboot, ‘Fuller House’ on Netflix, it has been confirmed. The twins began their acting careers on the series, jointly playing the role of Michelle Tanner from 1987 to 1995. But the 28 year old twins have shied away from acting in recent years, preferring to focus on their careers as fashion designers.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen shared the role of Michelle Tanner in the sitcom.
In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, the series’ executive producer Robert L. Boyett said, “Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of 'Fuller House', I know how much Full House has meant to them and they are still very much considered family.”
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen apparently had no idea that the 'Full House' revival was even a thing before the world knew on Monday.
‘Full House’ may be coming back to screens, but it was apparently news to two of the original series’ biggest stars. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen claim that the first they had heard of the revival was John Stamos making the announcement on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ earlier this week.
News broke on Monday that the fondly-remembered series would be getting a reboot under the name ‘Fuller House’, after Netflix commissioned thirteen new episodes. But in an interview with WWD on Tuesday, Ashley Olsen said that they had heard nothing prior to the actual announcement.

We're pleased that Victoria Beckham quit singing in favor for fashion design, but should these other celebrities have followed suit?
If they’re not bringing out fragrances, they’re designing complete fashion lines. You just can’t hold those stars down when it comes to sticking their fingers in all the pies, whether they have any discernible skill for fashion design or not. Some of these celebs found their true calling when they branched out in to the world of fashion, some of them we merely lament the day that anyone suggested they pick up a pencil.
Victoria Beckham is the queen of all fashionistas
Victoria Beckham is probably the biggest popstar-turned-designer success story. From her early days designing jeans for Rock & Republic through to her latest collections which have been hailed as her best yet, Victoria’s designs have matured and she is now not just a credible designer, but a leading name in high fashion.
