Anna Nicole Smith's 6-year-old gets a modeling contract with Guess, meanwhile Hollywood icon Shirley MacLaine's daughter is all grown now and says her childhood was pretty screwed up thanks to her mother's selfishness and neglect.
This week's 20/20 had some fascinating stories on famous children, including a pint-sized first grader who is the offspring of the most famous blond since Marilyn Monroe, and a Hollywood icon's daughter who is finally spilling the nasty, shocking dirt. Once again, another celebrity child says it's not all as it seemed.
Larry Birkhead is a surprisingly tender and attentive single father, braiding his little girl's hair, helping her pick out pretty dresses, and kissing her goodbye before school. But did he make a huge misstep letting Dannielynn model for Guess? Birkhead said he did it so Dannielynn could do something "with" her mom, who was also a Guess model, and that every cent is being saved for her. Birkhead says little Dannielynn always asks about her mom, who died when she was a baby.
Holy what the hay?! Shirley MacLaine's daughter is throwing her under the bus big time in her new book, where she says that MacLaine was neglectful and detached and rarely around when she was growing up. No, say it ain't so! Not Cora's American mum! According to one of Parker's many appalling tales, Shirley once put 2-year-old Sachi on an airplane to Japan to go see her father. By herself. Ugh.
