The First Olsen Twin Mix-Up of 2007

Yes we know it is confusing to keep track of which Olsen is which but when dedicating your cover story to one of the twins you would think you would make sure you know the difference. Well WWD uncovered the first MK/Ashley mix-up of the year which took place inside the pages of the January 8th issue of Star. The story questions whether MK is anorexic again but uses a picture of Ashley as one of the examples of the skinny twin. Yes, it's hard to tell the two apart with all their hair dying and everything but come on people, every tabloid publication should have at least one Olsen expert on staff at all times.

I still think they're both little cuties; I remain unpersuaded by differing opinions. I think it's fairly easy to tell them apart when they're side-by-side. I have more difficulty if only one twin is shown, and there is no clear shot of her facial features.

I really don't find them very pretty anymore...maybe I'm the only one but their style, their hair, their choices in men, well, it's disgusting IMO.

What? Lordy, it's very easy to tell them apart. MK has a lot sharper features than Ashley, her face is more rounded and soft.

i don't know about that pfloydie. those must be some weird genes and one hell of a workout regimen.

i'd hide too; if it was my job to tell them apart. . . I think they are skinny because of genetics and the gym though.

You would think that if you work at a gossip magazine, somebody on staff can tell the twins apart!

What people ususally don't realize is they aren't identical twins, they're actually fraternal!

I think they are having fun with the media and continue to change hair color as it is a game. of course it is a wig. can you imagine how gross MK's natural hair is considering her terrible diet? I'm all in.

Haha, Sasha! Yeah, what a very important task. It's sad that they couldn't get it right when I can tell them apart with no problem.
