10:31 pm - Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen -- billionaires
You know, I laughed when I saw "Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen" magazine on the stands a few years ago. "Ha, that'll never work," I thought to myself. "Who would buy that tripe?"
Apparently, lot's and lot's of 11 year old girls.
Now 17, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen move about $1.5 billion in movies, magazines, makeup, and host of other products targeted at the 10 - 13 year old "tween" market. If all goes according to plan, they are expected to be billionaires by age 18.
Man, what have I done with my life?!?
