Jarnette Olsen is famous as a celebrity mother. 

She is the mother of Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, or the Olsen Twins, American fashion designers and former actresses. 

Her other daughter Elizabeth Olsen is also an actress. Olsen was a ballet dancer.

Her husband divorced her to marry his secretary 

Olsen was married to her husband, David Olsen, a real estate developer, and mortgage banker, before they divorced in 1996

They share four children, son Trent, twin daughters Ashley and Mary-Kate, and youngest daughter Elizabeth

In 1996, they announced they were divorcing because David was seeing his secretary and was planning to marry her. 

As per the sources, Mary-Kate attended her father’s wedding while Ashley remained with her mother. 

Soon after their divorce, The Star reported that the bond between the twin sisters was being threatened as Olsen and David were separating them by sharing them, Mary-Kate with their father and Ashley with their mother. 

Still, the twin sisters, on their 18th birthday, denied it, explaining that at that point in time, they were sort of busy and had many people around them who loved them where they were like, That’s Ok. 

Things will be better this way. Ashley said they were very mature for their age.

Her twin daughters have been famous since they were nine months old

Her twin daughters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, have been in the spotlight since they were nine months old. 

They stepped into the entertainment world playing Michelle Tanner on the ABC sitcom Full House. 

They were cast when they were six months and began filming when they were nine months which continued throughout the show run. 

In an interview with The Washington Post, her ex-husband David said he didn’t understand why his daughters were appealing to audiences all over the world who, according to him, are just funny and were almost like chimpanzees when they were little. 

You just dress them up, and they are funny. I guess they are just photogenic, he said. 

He also confessed to trying to pull them off the show after the first season, fearing whether it would be too disruptive to them and the rest of the family but eventually decided not to because they enjoyed being there.

They were cast together in a number of films. 

After her divorce from her ex-husband, her ex-husband became the sole manager of Mary-Kate and Ashley’s career.

However, the twin sisters decided to retire as an actress and solely focus on their careers as fashion designers.
