David Almost Ruined His Daughter’s Career

They thought that they would feel disrupted in their life. But eventually, they realized their daughters were really happy in the show and enjoyed playing their parts.

David Called Their Daughters Chimpanzees

David has gotten himself in the limelight because of her daughters, Ashley and Mary-Kate, who are world-famous actresses. 

But at the beginning of their acting career, when they didn’t even sense anything, David couldn’t figure out why people adored her daughters. 

He revealed that her daughter looked close to chimpanzees. He said they looked funny when dressed, which might have been why people liked them.

David also assumed that his daughter had a photogenic face, which made them look good.

David Almost Lost His Home

David initially managed all the business of her daughters Ashley and Kate, but they eventually started differences. 

So, as soon as the sisters turned 18, they named the business in their name. The business was worth $100 Million

And giving away all the business to the twin was a huge blow for David and their family. 

The condition got so worst that David almost lost his home as well. Not just David but the twin even disowned their mother from the business as well. 

Kate felt bad for all these harsh decisions even though she didn’t have a great relationship with her parents.

Ashley Was Sexually Assaulted

A video got viral on media a few years ago where Full House’s Bob Saget was talking about having a sexual desire with the doll replaced in place of Kate-Mary and Ashley

The late comedian was just making fun and joking around with people over there when someone shot it. 

The video was posted in a quite misleading way in the media. But later, the doubts and the assault upon the late actor were cleared. 

Ashley and Kate also revealed that they were never treated unsafely, and they respected Bob as he was very nice to them and was like a senior figure.
