Does Ashley Olsen Have Lyme Disease?

ashley olsen

When I think of Lyme disease, for some reason what I generally think of – or who I generally think of, I should say – is Irene from The Real World Seattle season since she had it. Of course, I know that probably sounds weird as hell, considering, but the human brain is strange. There are so many other millions of people suffer from the awful disease… including Avril Lavigne and it seems… Ashley Olsen?

From The London Evening Standard:

Ashley Olsen has reportedly been diagnosed with Lyme Disease, just a few weeks after Avril Lavigne revealed that she was battling the same illness.

The fashion designer, 28, is thought to be in the later stages of the bacterial disease, which is usually contracted through tick bites.

Although the former child star is yet to speak out about the illness herself, a source close to the twins apparently told America’s OK Magazine: “She’s really sick. It’s gotten worse. She was diagnosed in the very late stages so early detection measures weren’t options for her. She’s really going through it.”

They added: “When she does come to work, she looks haggard and dishevelled. And she’s often moody. Ashley’s having a very rough time right now.”

Olsen, who runs successful fashion label, The Row, has reportedly been finding it difficult to carry on at work.

The insider added: “When she does come to work, she looks haggard and dishevelled. And she’s often moody. Ashley’s having a very rough time right now.”

Not to be an asshole or anything, but hasn’t “moody” and “haggard and dishevelled” sorta like… Mary-Kate and Ashley’s whole “thing” for years? Obviously if she’s seriously ill, that’s one thing, but this just sounds like tabloid fodder, for now. Hope she’s okay! Wouldn’t wish Lyme disease (or any illness, obviously) on anybody.

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen are bringing back socks with sandals

I love me some Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I grew up with them as Michelle on Full House and think they’re excellent for having built an empire without becoming like Lindsay Lohan and squandering it all. I also sorta love that despite being billionaires, they continue to dress like homeless people. It’s mind-boggling and sort of hilarious.

However, socks with sandals? Ladies, really? First of all, they’re awful Jesus sandals. Second of all, those socks look thick enough to wear in the Arctic. Considering that these two are CFDA-nominated fashion designers, I’m a little concerned. However, apparently the Birkenstock-style sandal was all the rage in all the recent Fashion Week shows, so now that they’re wearing them, expect to see this ugly shit everywhere you go, I guess.

Stars Go Punk At The Met Gala: See The Best And Worst

anne hathaway met gala punk

Anne Hathaway actually blew me away with her punk transformation for the Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum (or Met Gala for short). Doesn’t she look great as a blonde? Every year celebs dress to the hilt for the event for whatever the theme is. This year, it’s punk. So keep that in mind when looking at these photos — these looks are supposed to be crazy and over the top.

BEST: Anne Hathaway, January Jones, Sienna Miller

WORST: Almost everyone else, but especially Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kim Kardashian and honestly there were so many more I couldn’t even deal with.

The Olsen Twins Would Like to Sell You A Backpack

A photo of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Christmas is coming up quick, you guys. In just a few short weeks, it’ll be time to hang out with your loved ones and sing fun songs and eat baked goods and be happy. Doesn’t that just sound lovely? I think so. But even though that is, really and truly, my very favorite thing about Christmas, there’s no denying that presents are going to be given, and presents are going to be received. You can’t control what presents you receive (ugh, so lame!), but you can write a very pointed list to give to your mom or your significant other or your crazy rich aunt or whoever. And I’m about to tell you the very first thing that you’re going to put on this list.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen designed a backpack, friends! I know, Olsen twin fashion is always exciting, especially when you can get it for yourself. So without making you wait any longer, I’m going to show you this work of art, all right? Here we go:

What you are seeing is a backpack “created out of black patent leather from Nile crocodiles.” It’s a collaboration between Mary Kate and Ashley’s label, The Row, and artist Damien Hirst. This one is adorned with prescription pills (probably not real, sorry), but you can get ones that are just plain black, or ones with polka dots. There are only 12 of these lovelies available, and for just $55,000, one of them can be yours!

So start writing those wishlists! First, obviously, would be this $55,000 backpack (the pill one is my fave!). Then second could be an iPad or a house or whatever. Then for the third thing, you could probably just write “a clue.”

It’s going to be a great Christmas!

Ashley Olsen. On the Beach. In a Bikini. SWIMMING.

I know. I had to take a breath and regroup for a minute, too, because I almost died from the shock I went into when I saw that Ashley Olsen wasn’t wearing Grandma’s sweater while smoking a cigarette, sucking down a half-caff capp, and trudging down the streets of New York City with sunglasses that make her look like a large praying mantis.

Also, have you ever really seen her smile beyond that insipid, knowing, coy, and downright condescending little smirk that she normally gives during photo shoots and interviews? Because this is unbelievable! She looks cute and approachable … and much, much like Michelle a la ‘Full House’. Which I am, of course, loving.

While Ashley’s not doing things like hooking up with Johnny Depp (disappointing), she is doing normal, real-person things like swimming. In the ocean. Where, you know, fish pee and stuff. BOURGEOIS fish who would probably clothes shop somewhere fourth-rate if they were people and not fish, because I hear that fish are POOR and NOT AT ALL IN-THE-KNOW about things like fashionable labels and creepy twin designers and the $3,900 backpacks created by said twin designers that are apparently a necessity for some people like Jessica Biel. Scuzzy, scrubby fish. Ugh. How do they even function in life?

Apparently Johnny Depp is Messing Around With an Olsen Twin Now

Didn’t you hear? In Touch has all of the details, all of which are pretty ostentatious and semi-unbelievable, but hey. It’s a story about Johnny Depp and I’m RUNNING WITH IT.

Ahem. As you know, Johnny Depp and his long-term, live-in girlfriend Vanessa Paradis (someone who’s way, way more famous than all of the Olsens put together, really, and that’s saying a lot) have been having domestic issues, and even though they were together for fourteen years and have two children together, sources are saying that they’re done. Old news. Moving on.

In Touch is now saying that Johnny was photographed leaving Ashley’s New York City apartment in the wee hours of the morning, and also claim to have photos to prove it. From In Touch:

In Touch can exclusively reveal that on February 27, Johnny was spotted making a hasty exit from an office building connected to Ashley’s apartment building “looking like he didn’t want to be seen,” a witness tells In Touch. In fact, an office worker confirms, “An e-mail went around to the employees saying Johnny Depp was using our building to try to avoid paparazzi.”

It turns out the star, 48, was secretly leaving 23-years younger Ashley’s loft after a sneak slumber party. Arriving in the afternoon of February 26, Johnny hunkered down in Ashley’s Tribeca digs until noon the next day — nearly 24 hours later. “It was quiet in her apartment, like it was just the two of them in there,” an insider recalls, and though no one outside can know what happened, “It didn’t seem like it was just a visit between friends.”

Whatever the twosome were up to during their overnighter, it certainly left Johnny exhausted. When the star finally left the next day, “he looked like he was out of it,” an onlooker said.

Do I believe it? Ha! No. Seriously, unless I see photos of Johnny’s penis, face, and social security card actually entering the vagina of any of the Olsen girls (or, actually, anyone with the last name of Olsen the world over), then I’m not going to believe it. Come on! Please! This is Johnny Depp we’re talking about here. He doesn’t hook up with just anyone, you know. In order for Johnny Depp to issue an up-close and personal genital talking to, lady’s got to be epic. And unless you’re one of the folks who think the word “epic” is synonymous with “bitches killed Heath Ledger,” then we’re just not talking epic, guys. Not really, really epic in the sense that it means, you know, epic.

Nice try, though, In Touch.

Stars Without Makeup: Ashley Olsen on a Smoke Break

Wow, Ashley Olsen.  Looking good.  I mean, the “no yesterday’s eyeliner” look really suits you – you look fresh-faced, young, and approachable, not to mention clean. That’s probably the best part of this entire thing. The cigarette, though? Hm. I bet that hair of yours smells just great, girl.
