The Olsen Twins Were Too Good for the Full House Reunion, Of Course

From People:

It’s been 25 years since primetime viewers first got a glimpse at a different kind of all-American family on Full House, but on Saturday, Uncle Jesse, two-thirds of the Tanner trio and even Gibbler got together in L.A.

The reunion brought together the patchwork San Francisco family, including Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner), 36, Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), 56, John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), 49, Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner), 30, Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis), 48, Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibbler), 36, Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), 53, and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale), 36.

But it wasn’t quite a full house: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (who shared the role of little Michelle Tanner) missed the festivities in honor of the ABC sitcom that began in 1987.

… Bure also shared pictures from the party, which included cake and a dance party to none other than ’80s-’90s heartstrings New Kids on the Block, professionally deejayed by Sweetin’s love, Morty Coyle.

“I just danced to three NKOTB songs in a row with @candacecbure and @JohnStamos,” Barber added as the festivities ran into the evening. “Life is complete!” Coyle posted the (hilarious) evidence from his vantage point on Twitter.

So why werne’t Mary-Kate and Ashley there? Ugh, come on. They’re way too classy for something as silly and juvenile as this. I mean, dancing to New Kids on the Block DJ-ed by a dude named Morty Coyle? No doubts they’d rather shave their heads, paint their asses Baboon Red, and defecate in Times Square.


All I know is that this looked like one bomb-ass reunion, and holy crap. Can you believe that it’s the twenty-fifth anniversary of this show? FULL HOUSE FOREVER, guys.

  • I really don’t get the hate. My first thought was that the Olsen’s were probably busy at one of the several fashion weeks going on around the world this month, promoting their INSANELY successful fashion lines and just couldn’t make it to LA on this particular weekend. Head shaving or baboon asses never even crossed my mind, but maybe that’s why I’m not the blogger here.

  • Mel2- really fashion week? what adults do you see even wearing their clothes- like its in that much of a demand- what did they need to do work on their toddler line- like come on- the show that gave you your stardom- you cant even take the time to thank and appreciate- ok?! and let alone if you couldnt make it to an event that did contribute to your success- you cant issue a legit statement as to sorry we couldnt make it- etc. Inexcusable.

    • Well, they did win the CFDA award for top women’s wear designers this year for The Row, and I know quite a few people that rock Elizabeth & James clothing. I’m just saying that, I’d more likely bet that all the people that did show up live in LA anyway and had nothing better to do that weekend. I doubt that the Olsens would rather “defecate in Times Square” than attend this reunion. It just seemed like a big leap to make.
