13 Reasons Why is Netflix's newest hit -- but also maybe its most controversial ever.
What do YOU think of 13 Reasons Why??
Revenge of the interns!
As we reported in 2015, Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen were slapped with a class action lawsuit organized by former intern Shahista Lalani who claimed the pint-sized divas did not pay or offer college credit to the youngsters who worked exhausting 50 hour work weeks.
According to Lalani, their label — The Row — made the poor trainees work under mean, demanding bosses in an unbearably hot office.
Fast forward to Wednesday, the famous twins have settled the suit and will pay the disgruntled employees for their free labor.
According to docs, the high fashion house has agreed to cough up $140,000 to a group of 185 interns, which comes out to $530 per person after lawyer fees. The agreement has yet to be approved by a judge.
The plaintiffs' attorney LaDonna Lusher said:
These two are the epitome of what movie stars should look like!
While the hunk wore a slick navy suit, the sexy redhead wore a brown The Row dress with black heels.
While their movie is expected to win several accolades this awards season, this isn't the first time the pair have worked together. In case you forgot, they starred in 2011's Crazy, Stupid, Love.

What's REALLY going on between Ashley Olsen and artist George Condo??
Over the weekend, the Full House alum was seen supposedly getting cozy with the 59-year-old while at New York hotspot Balthazar. Color us intrigued!
According to Page Six, the twosome were "holding hands and snuggling" during their outing on Sunday. A source dished to the publication:
It's an Olsen trifecta!
However, the famous twins made quite the splash on the red carpet when they showed up with sister Elizabeth Olsen! This is such a rare occasion to see the THREE famous Olsens in one photo!
The fashionistas were nominated for Womenswear Designer of the Year and Accessories Designer of the Year for their label, The Row.
Not surprisingly, the former child stars wore their own brand to the gala along with Sidney Garber jewels.
Earlier this week, Elizabeth couldn't help but gush about her older sisters and their fashion success!
The premiere season of Fuller House will bring back the entire cast from the original series — except for Michelle Tanner!
John Stamos revealed that he reached out to the famous sisters in hopes they would reprise the role that shot them to super stardom, but explained that they "don't consider themselves actresses" anymore.
But according to executive producer Bob Boyett, the 29-year-olds aren't returning to the spinoff series for a few different reasons!
Speaking to People, Boyett explained:
The Olsen Twins are SO over the lawsuit filed against them from a former intern!
On Friday, it was reported that Mary-Kate and Ashley are seeking to have the legal case brought about by Shahista Lalani thrown out. Whoa!
According to DailyMail, the former tween superstars have shot down Miz Lalani's claims that they took advantage of at least 40 interns by working them to the bone and paying them NOTHING.
In fact, they've since called the now designer a liar and have stated they in no way acted in a
Uh-oh, what would Danny Tanner think about this?!
On Tuesday, reports surfaced that the Olsen Twins are being sued by a former intern at the moguls' fashion house, The Row. The intern, Shahista Lalani, has organized a class action lawsuit with 40 other interns that are demanding compensation for 50 hour work weeks they endured without pay or college credit. Not to mention the interns allege they worked under horrible and excruciating conditions!
"It was like 100 degrees outside. I'd just be sweating to death. I probably carried like 50 pounds worth of trench coats. I'd be inputting data into spreadsheets, making tech sheets, running personal errands for paid employees, organizing materials, photocopying, sewing, pattern cutting, among other related duties."
While those tasks sound like the common duties of an intern, the now designer claims paid employees should have taken on some of these duties. Not to mention it's illegal to hire an intern without some form of compensation, whether it be monetary or educational.
"The head technical designer was very demanding. I was doing the work of three interns. I was talking to her all day, all night. E-mails at nighttime for the next day, like 10 p.m. at night. She was like, ‘Go get my Advil. I need this and this because I'm feeling sick and I have this meeting."
Unsurprisingly, Mary-Kate and Ashley's company rep shot back, saying:
"As an initial matter, Dualstar is an organization that is committed to treating all individuals fairly and in accordance with all applicable laws. The allegations in the complaint filed against Dualstar are groundless, and Dualstar will vigorously defend itself against plaintiff's claims in court, not before the media. Dualstar is confident that once the true facts of this case are revealed, the lawsuit will be dismissed in its entirety."
Sounds like this is about to get contentious! We just wonder why Shahista waited so long to file the lawsuit…
So, whose side are U on?
