In what is either a bid for official mogul-hood or the dumbest move they could ever make, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have assumed full control over their company, Dualstar Entertainment, by buying out CEO Robert Thorne. In a prepared statement, the Olsens expressed their enthusiasm at increasing their responsibilities as co-CEOs (they're taking Econ 101 and an introductory finance class, you know). Thorne, who has run Dualstar for the past 15 years (since the girls were, um, three years old), received a handsome financial reward for steering the twins on a billion-dollar path to fame, addiction, and personal hell.
