Their children, Ella, 8, and Quinlin, 5, started their own lemonade stand to raise funds to give back to their community.

“They raised $120 – I think a few parents stopped by and dropped twenties. It was great, and it’s important for their self-esteem too,” Taylor, 39, told People at a New York fundraiser for Project A.L.S.

Stiller, 44, says he and his wife try to set a good example for their kids since “they pick up the good things you do and the bad things you do.”

Stiller added, “When you’re lucky enough to have things in your life and you’re brought up with that, it’s hard for kids to know what it’s like not to have that because that’s just not their reality. You just try to point it out and try to make them aware.”

Stiller also admits that he’s trying to teach his kids proper ways to express themselves. “I’m always telling them, ‘Don’t say “like.” ‘ Like, seriously, don’t do it,” he laughs.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
