Finally, we have the real reason the Olsen twins skipped out on Fuller House and it’s way less dramatic than you might think. According to the series’ executive producer Bob Boyett, who talked with People, “Ashley said, ‘I have not been in front of a camera since I was 17 and I don’t feel comfortable acting.’ Mary-Kate said, ‘It would have to be me because Ash doesn’t want to do it, but the timing is so bad for us.'” Considering MK just got married and the sisters run two successful clothing lines, this does seem like a hectic time.
While John Stamos hasn’t been completely forgiving, Dave Coulier, or Uncle Joey, is. “They’re family members,” he explained to the magazine. “But I think they have a different perspective. When we get together and we reminisce, they were babies [at the time]. So they don’t share those same memories. I can’t really speak for them but I would understand why they don’t have the same sentiments that we all do.”
Fuller House premieres Feb. 26 on Netflix.
