Well, love is in the air, because we’ve got a second engagement announcement today, this time from Mary Kate Olsen and her French boyfriend (and half brother of the former president of France, Nicholas Sarkozy), Olivier Sarkozy. The pair have been dating a little less than two years, and now they’ve finally decided to make things official and walk down the aisle – despite rumours that this would be happening stemming back to March 2013.
There’s a 17 year age difference between the two – Mary Kate is 27 and Olivier is 44, but hey, who doesn’t love a little May/December romance? (I kid – this isn’t that bad!) I like ‘em a little older, myself, so I see where MK is coming from. And besides, they seem to be into each other, even if Olivier does seem a little creepy.
Let’s just hope MK gets that prenup!

Mary-Kate Olsen is dating some creepy-ass dude (Olivier Sarkozy), creepy because of how much older he is than she (17 year age difference) and because of how possessive he looks of her in every photo. It’s been rumored that they’ve been secretly married, or engaged, or are having a “test marriage”, whatever the hell that is. Now apparently Ms. Olsen’s family and friends are urging her to get a $500 million prenup, so it looks like marriage may be in her future after all. From the fabulous National Enquirer (grain of salt, people):
…pint-size Mary-Kate, 27, was spotted shopping for a large engagement ring at the Neil Lane boutique in Los Angeles. She’s said to have her heart set on a huge sparkler.
“All of the rings she looked at are over five carats,” a source told a reporter.
Although the bling could set 44-year-old Sarkozy back a staggering $100,000, that’s nothing compared to the gigantic sums that would be protected by a prenup.
Celebrity divorce attorney Raoul Felder told The ENQUIRER: “She’s worth a bundle and he’s got money, too.
“So this would be like two corporations merging – which is Sarkozy’s specialty…”
That’s such a weird way to think about marriage — as two corporations merging — but it also totally makes sense.
I DON’T GET THEIR RELATIONSHIP AT ALL.

Mary-Kate Olsen, 26, is often seen being cuddly and gross with her 43 year-old boyfriend, Olivier Sarkozy, but could they be engaged? OR EVEN MARRIED? Probably not, I think people just want an excuse to post these hilariously awkward photos of the seemingly mismatched couple.
Huffington Post reported the sighting of a gold ring on her left ring finger. She also has a gold ring on the other hand. Let’s take a look.
Yes, from this angle this photo is definite proof that Mary-Kate Olsen looks like she is about to make out with a warped Tom Hanks.
Before you start freaking out at the idea of Michelle Tanner getting married (!), remember that we’ve been here before: In January, photographers spotted “Markozy” shopping at a jewelry store in Paris then spied Olsen with a ring on her left-hand ring finger. Alas, her rep told The Huffington Post that the despite the bling, the couple is not engaged.
So basically, thanks for NOTHING, Huffpo.

You know, I think that sometimes we all focus way too much on the negative, and I think that the relationship between Mary-Kate Olsen and her boyfriend, Olivier Sarkozy, is a good example of that. We always talk about how creepy he is and how uncomfortable it makes us feel to look at pictures of them together. So instead of doing that whole thing over again, why don’t we stay positive about it all? Why don’t we make this glass half full?
See, Olivier is VERY GOOD at being creepy. That is a talent that he has, and it is very impressive! He must have been at this for years, which shows a lot of dedication! And in this particular outing, he even went the extra creepy mile:
So Olivier is talented, dedicated, and hardworking! Just look at all those positive aspects of his personality! I’d even go as far as to say that very few of us are as good at anything as Olivier is at being creepy. And if that’s not a compliment, then I don’t know what is.
But here’s the real story here: Mary-Kate was photographed wearing a ring on That Finger. And it looks like an engagement ring:
There’s always the chance, of course, that Mary-Kate just put a ring on for funzies and that it doesn’t mean anything, but I could definitely see this being an engagement. I think she’d marry this dude, and I don’t think she’d make any sort of announcement about it. You can see that, right?

If you’ve ever wondered what Mary-Kate Olsen was like outside of designing pill bags and killing Heath Ledger (yeah, I know, old news, that is, wearing it out and all that), this is it. This is what Mary-Kate does in all of her spare time—kiss men who could be her father at basketball games. Honestly, I’m not even sure she goes anywhere other than those damn basketball games, and judging by the ever-tousled state of her hair, she definitely doesn’t go anywhere near places that have a brush.
Isn’t love so cute, guys?

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!
