Mary-Kate "Freaked Out" by Spies in Her Classroom!

8/20/2007 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

No one was the tiniest bit shocked when teeny Mary-Kate Olsen decided to ditch NYU, but she didn't drop out because of weight issues, dislike of study, or a sudden realization that she was a teenage multi-millionaire with as much use for a college education as Britney Spears has for a live mike.

The rapidly-aging celebutwin tells New York magazine this week that she bailed on NYU because she was spooked by classmates who were spying on her; selling their snitchy stories to tabs and working at glossies that were happy to receive dispatches from the classroom. "They'd have internships at the weeklies," says MK. "Learning is not fun if you're not safe."

The mag points out that the "Weeds" guest star didn't actually drop out -- she's still enrolled and has only a year-and-a-half to go for a degree. MK and Ashley are in the midst of launching a new fashion line, The Row, which will be most conspicuous for the absence of any trace of the mini twins themselves, either in face or name.

What's wrong with her face in this picture?    

I just don't understand why people are so mean to these sisters. Are you jealous of their money? They haven't done anything to cause the cruel comments. Why don't you insult Lindsey, Brittany or Paris - those who drink & drive or drive with their baby in their lap, etc.

Pick on the celebs who deserve it ..........

Mary Kate is "rapidly aging". Wait just a darn minute, do you have some kind of nuclear aging device aimed at her?? Mary Kate cannot age more than ONE year at a time. Get real, get a life, and get over it.
By the way, after railroading Paris into a longer than normal amount of jail time, now you ignore her. Where are all those creepy paparazzi shooting photos under her dress?
It must infuriate those creeps that Mary Kate won't oblige by wearing those long unattractive dresses only to mess up those creepy paparazzi's plans.
Good for her. She will be fine. She IS fine.

Yes people were paying way more attention to her than a person who was not on tv in front of the nation (or was it WORLD) for the majority of their childhood). Yes, it bothered her... and that is OKAY. She is not a NOOB for being bothered by it. Glad to know she recognized the anxiety for what it was and got out instead of went ballistic like the Virginia tech person. Anyone who makes fun of her for leaving school because there were people probably paid to spy on her is living in lala land and has no idea what it is like for a person to grow up without a standard childhood. YOu and I know the "standard" childhood isn't what it is cracked up to be... but she doesn't.. so give it a rest. A normal life for a few years is all she wants. leaave them all alone and get a life yourself!!!!!
