Connectivity

Overachiever Mary-Kate Grant (who is indeed named after an Olsen Twin) has followed every rule to the letter to pursue her dream of working in TV programming.

MK has no time or desire for a relationship right now—she is totally focused on her career and being independent, unlike the other women in her family. But MK’s plans are run through the shredder when she […]
