Are you listening?
Today is the Olsen Twins’ 29th birthday so I thought to share a funny personal story I have about Mary Kate.
In 2010 I was in a mutual Facebook thread with Mary K — the twin, not the door to door cosmetic icon. I can’t remember whose post we were both commenting on, but I think it was on my friend Anson Williams‘ page. Regardless, I clicked onto her ‘about’ section to see if she was really one of the Olsen Twins. She was and I noticed in her ‘about’ section on her page that she accepted ‘sibling’ requests on Facebook. Dakota Fanning, her own sister and a couple of other famous child stars were listed as her ‘sisters’ so on a whim, I sent a request. She accepted it the same day which created and published a tag in MY own ‘about’ section and published an announcement in my news feed claiming us as ‘sisters’. This started a bit of a riot on my page.
I had hundreds of dudes comment or send private messages to me about my ‘sister’. Some of the comments were from longtime social media friends and even some real-lifers who were wondering why I’d never told them I was an ‘Olsen’. It was hilarious and went on for a couple of months. At some point, Miss Mary corrected it. I would imagine she got bombarded by many of my ‘conspiracy’ cohorts who probably wanted her to ‘do something’.
Happy Birthday, Sis! :p
