The best way to describe John Stamos' relationship with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen these past few days is, "it's complicated."
When "Fuller House" was announced last week, the number one question on everyone's minds was would Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen reprise their role as Michelle Tanner? And more importantly, which Olsen would it be?
Initially, Mary-Kate told Women's Wear Daily that she and her sister had "just found out" about the "Full House" reboot after Stamos himself confirmed the news on Jimmy Kimmel Live! "I guess we're going to talk to the creators and see what's happening," she said.
"I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn't even talk about it," Ashley added. She said she planned to call him to "get his perspective."
This rubbed Stamos, who is also producing the Netflix revival series, the wrong way. He tweeted on Monday (April 27), "I call bulls--t." Of course, everyone then proceeded to freak out because how could Uncle Jesse and Michelle be fighting?!
But "Full House" fans can now breathe a sigh of relief. Yesterday (April 28), Stamos tweeted that he and Mary-Kate had a "sweet talk." Wait, so does this mean Mary-Kate might actually show up on "Fuller House" as Michelle? Have mercy on our nostalgia-loving hearts!
Of course, this wouldn't be the first time Stamos and the Olsen twins have been at odds. During the sitcom's first season, Stamos, displeased with the Olsen babies' incessant crying, had them fired from the show. Lucky for us, the replacement babies weren't much better, so Mary-Kate and Ashley were hired back.
Stamos made up for his past transgression a few years later when he saved Ashley's job. By the time season six started production, Mary-Kate and Ashley started to look so different that audiences could actually tell them apart. Producers considered giving Mary-Kate the role of Michelle Tanner full-time, until Stamos, put his foot down. He didn't want Ashley to leave the show because of the Olsen twins' growing popularity.
Seeing as the Olsen twins are just as popular today among '90s kids, we bet Stamos is working on a way to bring them onboard the project. It would be a shame to bring most of the cast back and not include Mary-Kate and Ashley. (But mostly Ashley, tbh.)
"Fuller House" is set to feature former cast members and centers on Candace Cameron Bure as a recently widowed DJ Tanner-Fuller. Andrea Barber (Kimmy) and Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) will also star alongside Bure.
