Actress Rebecca Romijn, 40, plays a private eye on TNT’s King & Maxwell, and chatted this week with PEOPLE about “one last thing” …

Last sport I played
My character is a former Olympic rower, and I used to row, so I was like, “I’ll show them how it’s done.” At my first training session, the boat was only about a foot wide and very tippy. I was in the lake in about two minutes.

Last great discovery
Zulily, a kids’ sale website. They had a big sale on inflatable pool toys and the kids [twin daughters Charlie and Dolly, 4] were so excited. I just had my first weekend at home in two months, and I blew up inflatables the entire time.

Last reality TV I watched
House Hunters International. I love when people move to a foreign place, especially one I’ve never been to, on a budget. It’s really interesting.

Last time I cursed
I curse all the time. Of course we try to watch what we say at home, but as parents, when you’re rushing to find your keys, sometimes words slip out. We don’t have a swear jar. They would clean up if we did!
