>> No.

>> No.

>> But we love that ride. We love it.

>> It's our favorite one.

>> Rosie: No kidding. Were you scared at all? After i went on it, i was scared.

>> When we went on, like the third or fourth time, it got stuck. So they had to --

>> bring us back down and we had to walk down the stairs.

>> So you go two or three times in a row?

>> Yes, we love it.

>> Rosie: That's got a high scare factor. How long have you been going to Disney, all your life?

>> Pretty much.

>> Swimming.

>> Hopefully get to go on the SeaDoos.

>> Rosie: I love it there. Where are you going?

>> Maui.

>> Rosie: I went there for a private vacation alone. Sitting there getting sun. I hear like this familiar voice and I'm like, what? It was Joey Lawrence and his entire family in the room next to me. Can you believe that?

>> Are you serious?

>> Rosie: I love it there. I'll tell you at the break where to go. You came back from a big signing at F.A.O. Schwarz. You must love it.

>> Yeah.

>> Rosie: From way back when I used to baby-sit my niece and I remember --

"I Am the Cute One" You remember that one?

>> Yeah.

>> Rosie: Mary-Kate and Ashley dolls. Available wherever they're sold. Would you have a lot of involvement in the process?

>> We got to choose what we looked like and what we wore

>> Also, we are designing clothes now. Our new line.

>> At Wal-Mart.

>>You mean real clothes for kids or adults?

>> For kids and you get to design these ones, too.

>> Rosie: Same head?

>> No, it's not. Different picture from different angles.

>> You did that, too, didn't you?

>> Rosie: Did you see mine, my Barbie?

>> Yeah.

>> Rosie: Here it is. Looks just like me. It even has a double chin. Did you notice? It does. I asked them to put it in. It's a time-consuming process.

>> They had to change my nose.

>> Rosie: They had to?

>> It was too big.

>> Rosie: Your nose is very cute. You guys are identical, aren't you?

>> Fraternal.

>> Rosie: You look a lot alike. Did you used to trick people when you were little?

>> No, we never did that.

>> Rosie: Isn't it true one of you has a freckle that the other one didn't have?

>> Went away. It was right here.

>> Rosie: It's totally gone?

> Uh-huh.

>> Rosie: You don't know how it happened?

>> I don't know.
