What would Bob Saget say about this? Mary-Kate Olsen, who shared the role of Michelle with her twin sister, Ashley, on the '80s comedy "Full House," has dropped out of college, early in her sophomore year, according to a published report.

"Mary-Kate Olsen has taken an approved leave of absence from New York University to focus on her increasing responsibilities as co-president of Dualstar Entertainment Group and to pursue personal interests," her publicist, Michael Pagnotta, was quoted on People magazine's Web site Friday.

Olsen's twin sister, Ashley, also co-president of Dualstar, will remain at NYU.

A message to the publicist from The Associated Press wasn't immediately returned Friday.

Mary-Kate, 19, spent six weeks at a treatment center for an eating disorder in summer 2004.

Since starting out as babies on "Full House" Saget played their father the twins have created a multimedia empire with a clothing line, feature films, direct-to-video movies and other merchandise.

Mary-Kate, a brunette, and Ashley, who is blond, became co-presidents of Dualstar when they turned 18. Each is estimated to be worth more than $150 million.

It's such a shame to see how her life seems to be falling apart. I used to watch Full House, and saw them grow up. I didn't see the eating disorder thing coming, and I don't think anyone else did. Now this dropping out of college thing... It's pretty sad. :(

I really feel sorry for the two of them...living in a glasshouse must be dreadfully hard, especially when you're a teen. I hope she can be happy.
