Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have made headlines in recent days for a comment they made about the upcoming Netflix reboot of Full House. The Olsen twins claimed they didn’t know Fuller House was a definite.
When the spinoff was first announced by Netflix and later that same night by John Stamos–who also serves as producer–on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, it was said that actors Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber would lead the cast. Actors Lori Loughlin, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were reportedly in talks to work out deals for guest appearances.
“We just found out about it…I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening…I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John [Stamos],” Mary-Kate Olsen said a couple of days after the announcements were made.
Stamos–who will reprise his role of Uncle Jesse on Fuller House on a recurring basis–cried foul. Actually, he cried, ‘Bullsh*t.’

The difference stances taken by John Stamos and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen regarding the Full House reboot sort of indicate that communications might not be so great between them. Is there more than meets the eye in their relationship?
Jodie Sweetin, who will reprise her role as Stephanie Tanner in Fuller House, recently said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that many members of the Full House cast have stayed close throughout the years.
“I’ve kept in touch with pretty much everybody. I work in drug and alcohol treatment right now, and my office is actually right next door to where John Stamos was filming his new show. I heard about it from crew that worked next door. I called him and was like, “We’re literally sharing a parking lot right now.” So I stay in contact with Bob [Saget] and John. I’m really close with Dave Coulier and his wife Melissa. My family and I go over there for barbeques, for dinners, Super Bowl parties. Candace and I have remained close, and Andrea. It’s just crazy how much these people have been an integral part of my life,” she explained.
You’ll notice there was no mention of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen on that list.

It certainly sounds like there might be some bad blood between Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and either John Stamos or the entire Full House cast.
Do you think the Olsen twins will reprise their role as Michelle Tanner? And how might they do that? After all, there are two actresses and just one role–and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen aren’t little kids like they were when they played Michelle Tanner.
