A WebOriginal written and performed by Elaine Carroll. It satirizes the life of actress [[MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen Mary Kate Olsen]]. Mary Kate's fictional bodyguard appears frequently in the series, and (along with Mary Kate) will occasionally co-star with Ashley. The web series is notable for [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderizing]] common media portrayals of the Olsen twins to the point of absurdity, and getting downright silly with some of its plotlines.

!!This series provides examples of the following tropes:
* ActingForTwo: Elaine Carroll plays both Mary Kate and Ashley.
* ADayInTheSpotlight: Bodyguard.
* ArbitrarilyLargeBankAccount:
** Mary Kate bought all the real estate in Louisiana and renamed it Mary Kanada so that she could write a history paper on the Lousiana Purchase about herself.
** She also spends 30 million dollars to get her cat cloned over and over again... because it keeps dying due to her not taking care of it.
* ButtMonkey: Mary Kate's unfortunate professor.
* CloudCuckoolander: Mary Kate.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Bodyguard interprets one of Mary Kate's long rants about Ashley sleeping with him to be about Ashley being somewhat literate.
-->'''Mary Kate''' ''[reading Ashley's diary]'': Dear diary, Bodyguard and me kissed. It was good and I like dresses. Smiley face, heart, outline of her hand! Then she practiced upper cased J's for a few pages! Do you know what this means?!
-->'''Bodyguard''': That she's somewhat literate?
* DawsonCasting
* DumbBlonde
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Other than [[MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen Mary Kate and Ashley]] and the occasional "celebrity" guest, the rest of the characters are known by their professions, such as Bodyguard and Professor. [[JustifiedTrope Although it could be that Mary Kate and Ashley's utter self-centeredness kept them from ever learning their names]].
* FeigningIntelligence: Mary Kate, especially when she has to give a presentation.
* {{Flanderization}}
* FormerChildStar
* HollywoodPudgy: [[invoked]] Professor. At least he thinks so.
* ImmuneToDrugs: Both Mary Kate and Ashley pop pills like there's no tomorrow. They eat nothing but pills and drink cocktails made out of various kinds of medications and anti-depressants. [[ImmuneToDrugs Instead of being dead]], they're merely kind of strung-out all the time.
* IveHeardOfThatWhatIsIt: Mary Kate tries to feign an interest in ''Music/TheBeatles'' to get Creator/ZacEfron to like her.
--> '''Zac Efron''': I'm really into this English band called Music/TheBeatles.
--> '''Mary Kate''': Oh yeah! Me too! Same as me! I'm the same!
--> '''Zac Efron''': Awesome! So what's your favourite song?
--> '''Mary Kate''': I... really like the song... that goes.. Bee...aa.... tles...
* MrFanservice: Bodyguard's body is rarely guarded by clothes.
* OnlySaneMan: Professor.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Despite wanting to steal his sperm to make a test-tube baby at one point, Mary Kate and Bodyguard are these. Ashley and Bodyguard on the other hand...
* PrettyWhiteKidsWithProblems: Pretty much the premise, but turned up to eleven.
* RecklessGunUsage: Mary Kate ends up shooting her cat.
* ReferenceOverdosed: ''WebVideo/VeryMaryKate'', being about a vastly exaggerated media portrayal of a famous pop-culture icon... is of course rife with pop culture references.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Mary Kate is the most negligent pet owner ever and keeps getting her cat, Comet, cloned because it keeps dying.
* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: The Olsen Twins. To ridiculous degrees. Mary Kate does not know what a potato looks like.
* ShaggyDogStory: A few episodes. For example, in "Draw Something," Mary Kate goes to Bodyguard's apartment in the middle of the night and tells him that he has to guess what she's drawn in the app. Bodyguard has no idea what it is, so Mary Kate begins a long, rambling story about her adventures since downloading the app (including buying an advanced package that features colors humans can't see and believing that a hot dog shape she inadvertently drew was Jesus). The story ''finally'' ends with Mary Kate just writing the word--"cup"--because she got tired. Then when Bodyguard guesses and takes a turn of his own, she says "pass." The End.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Two episodes are dubbed "Very Maggie Smith" and feature Elaine Carroll playing Maggie Smith, largely based on her ''Series/DowntonAbbey'' character; Bodyguard is her butler.
* StalkerWithACrush: Philip Seymour Hoffman.
* StraightMan: Bodyguard.
* ValleyGirl
