As I stand in line in the supermarket waiting patiently behind some woman and her entire Sunday ad coupon clippings ("Wait! I have a manufacturer's coupon for that! "), my eyes wander towards the tabloid racks. Usually, I see the typical "Britney's Wild Night" story , a Jacko picture where his face (or what's left of it) is hidden by yet another plastic bag or Jessica's "Why I didn't give it up to Nick" article; To my astonishment these headlines were shadowed by the Olsen Twins- Oh wait ! Don't you dare call them that anymore! They are "individuals" and besides the term is "like, soooo five minutes ago".
They now prefer that you call them: MARY-KATE and ASHLEY Olsen.
A couple of years ago they were occasionally on every other teeny bopper magazine-you know the ones that talk about kissing boys and such but now they are on the cover of magazines that talk about high fashion, makeup and the Kama -Sutra (gasp!).
The tabloids are having their share as well. I saw an article discussing the possibility of an eating disorder on one of the girls (I still can't tell them apart).
There's websites that have countdowns to their birthdays for god sakes. Here's a preview to a site:
"This site counts down to when Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turn eighteen years old. TV's most famous kids won't legally be kids any more! As well as (most likely) having a pretty darn big birthday party (they're incredibly rich and famous, after all), it's said that the Olsen twins will inherit their own multi-million dollar merchandising business. They'll then be making millions selling their own line of Mary-Kate and Ashley dolls, cosmetics, underwear and fashion accessories.
They'll also be legally able to vote, smoke (lets hope they don't!) and drive in all states. They also reach the age of majority, which means they're legally old enough for other more adult things such as... watching an 18-rated movie. Yeah. :) "
How sick can you get?
Flip on to any other entertainment channel and they are there, strolling the red carpet arm in arm, smiling at the photographers, rocking lots o' bling-bling. It sort of reminds me of another famous duo: Bennifer.
The twins also have a big screen flop to add to their resumes. Their movie "New York Minute" tanked at the box office.
Just like Bennifer's "Gigli".
And just like Bennifer-these girls are everywhere!
