PETA is at it again, using famous names to get attention for their already over-hyped “cause.” They’ve named their Worst-Dressed Celebrities of 2009, and the six “winners” are Madonna, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kanye West, Elizabeth Hurley and PETA’s favorite objects of scorn, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Stealing their material from Mr. Blackwell, PETA said of the Material Matron, “When you see Madonna in fur, you realize why nobody has copied her style since 1984. We know that she’s on the prowl for a young cub, but someone needs to tell Madge that wearing fur doesn’t make you a cougar.”
As usual, their worst barbs were saved for the Olsens. “Since fur adds 20 years and 20 pounds, maybe Mary-Kate and Ashley think their matronly wardrobe will deflect the gossip about bulimia. Somewhere, someone is missing a matching pair of Bigfoot bobblehead dolls.”
Ouch! So when they’re not ragging on celebs, what does PETA actually do for animals? Their silly campaign to stop us from eating fish by naming them “Sea Kittens” just made me think, “Yum! Kittens of the Sea.”

While many of us are struggling financially this Christmas, Mary-Kate Olsen is enjoying the plight of retailers. Page Six reports that the tiny twin commented on the great bargains she was finding at Barneys New York. ”It’s really sad – the recession is everywhere. But at least they are having good sales. That’s where I got this! The recession!”
Somehow it seems like poetic justice that no matter how much money this overpaid, brainless brat spends, she still looks like a bag lady.

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen made a rare joint public appearance last night at Borders bookstore in Westwood, CA,to sign copies of their coffee-table book “Influence” and attracted a large crowd of fans. They also attracted several protesters from PETA carrying signs saying “Trollsens: Fur Hags From Hell” and “Hairy-Kate and Trashley Olsen: Fur Tramps. PETA has been targeting the twins over their frequent public appearances in fur and animal skins, like the dead rat jacket Mary-Kate wears in the photo here.
I seriously doubt PETA will convince the twins to lay off the skins but then, I doubt they can really write a book.

Mary Kate Olsen has decided not to talk to federal investigators who are looking into Heath Ledger’s accidental death in February. The New York Post is reporting that MK refuses to talk to feds unless she receives immunity from prosecution. Mary Kate was the first person called after her masseuse (also there for an appointment with Heath) discovered the actor’s body at his Broome Street apartment in NYC. MK, instead of calling 911, called her bodyguards and sent them to Heath’s apartment to check on the actor. Probers have talked to everyone connected to Heath and his death, including his ex-fiance, actress Michelle Williams. One of the Post’s source explained that MK would be the final witness they need to conclude their investigation into where he got his drugs and medicines.

No, I’m not calling Ashley (or Mary Kate) Olsen prune face. That would just be mean. And just in case you were wondering, Ashley’s the top pic and Mary Kate is below. I think. Your guess is as good as mine. Okay, back to prunes. Well, according to OK! magazine and their “source”, the Olsens get their signature grins by saying the word prune before each photo. I tried this technique and although I wasn’t looking in the mirror, I didn’t feel a smile when I said prune. I know what I would get if I ate prunes, though, and it wouldn’t be a smile. But that’s another story. Oh, and to help you tell them apart, the source had this tip – Mary-Kate has slightly thinner lips and more of a playful grin, while Ashley tends to go for a full-on pout. Yeah, I looked at the pictures again and still can’t tell. Oh, well, I’ll try again next time.
