Besides meeting up for family functions, Bobby and Jaimie also work with their mother. Both boys followed her footsteps and work together to create cookbooks and run the family restaurant.

Jamie is a businessman, entrepreneur, and author. While Bobby hosts a cooking show and appears on cooking competition shows.

They've teamed up with their mother to open restaurants as well. Bobby has also made Paula a grandmother to his triplets; two girls (Olivia and Amelia) and a boy, Linton. Fans can't help but wonder if the little ones will also join the family business one day.
