“I’ve had to cut down on wine drinking, big time. I’d fall asleep for an hour, and then be wide awake! Every once in a while, I’d toy with the idea of, ‘I can be a cool mom: a party girl at night and a mom in the morning.’ But I’d regret it every time. Because those girls wake up at 6 a.m. no matter what time you come home! Sleep is so important. But as soon as you become a mother, you’re always a little bit awake, because your one ear is always sort of listening.” – Rebecca on motherhood.

“I’m trying to force them into the entertainment industry. My wife is a little more, ‘Let them find their way.’ I would love for them to be on the Disney Channel. Maybe with a twins show of their own. Maybe they’re the new Olsen twins!” – Jerry jokingly professing his desire for his daughters to follow in their parent’s footsteps.

Their outfits are absolutely terrible.


I believe they said once that they actually let their kids choose their own clothing, which is a great thing…so…you are judging the choices a newly turned 4 year old made. Nice.


The twins are pretty little girls. IMO they look a mess, clothes don’t match , hair isn’t brushed. If they want to pick out their own clothes then they need guidance. Get a new nanny or two. I am not criticizing the children. It is up to the parents to teach and guide their children.


I can’t believe people are saying the kids need “guidance” in their fashion choices. They dress fine and they are expressing themselves. I don’t get what the issue is.
