“Expect the unexpected” isn’t just what Constance Zimmer says about her new TV show: She’s giving the same advice to fellow mom (and costar!) Shiri Appleby.
Zimmer told PEOPLE at the A+E Networks’ Upfront event on Thursday that her and Appleby share parenting tips since they both have young daughters.
“I’m five years ahead of her because mine is 7 and I feel like now I’m embarking on a girl,” Zimmer, 44, tells PEOPLE of daughter Colette Zoe. “She called me on the phone and says, ‘Mom, I think I want to buy a bikini.’ ”
