Penguin Preem Reprise: Olsens Giggle for Swarthy Inquisitor

Back in the House: (L-R) Mary-Kate Olsen with Bob Saget and sister Ashley (Photo: Radar Online)

Maybe I should have gone to this party after all: There's all kinds of stuff going on at Radar in Neel Shah's report from the Farce of the Penguins premiere bash Tuesday night. I noted a few odds and ends in today's Screening Gotham, but I had no idea Tracy Morgan would be so forthright about all the "cussin' and fuckin' and all that type of shit" or that Gilbert Gottfried would go on the record about his career being "over." Mostly, though, I regret missing my opportunity to sneak in with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen after Shah flamed out:

"We're not doing interviews," they chirped in unison. One was wearing a red frock and looked sickly skinny. The other had her hair pulled back and looked regular skinny. I was unsure which was which.

"Right. So, you guys just here to support Bob (Saget, Farce's director and primary creative force)?"

"We're not doing interviews."

I shifted gears.

"So, what's Kimmy Gibbler up to these days?"

Red frock called me a jackass with her eyes.

"Oh, come on. This isn't an interview anymore," I said. "I'm just trying to be your friend!"

They looked at each other, then back at me, but said nothing.

"It's 'cause I'm brown, isn't it? Do you guys not befriend brown people? 'The Olsens: From Full House to Full-Fledged Racists.' I'm taking this to the press tomorrow!"

Finally, a giggle.

You're goddamned right "a giggle" -- in other words, "Sure, asshole, and what was John Stamos?"
