The mother-daughter duo is currently appearing together in the Lifetime reality series Growing Up Supermodel, centered around young, aspiring models who also have famous parents. Atiana’s father is professional boxer Oscar De La Hoya, and her stepfather is Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker.
“A long time ago, I tried getting her into the entertainment industry, and she was kind of like, 'You know what, Mom? It's just not my thing, I’m not into it,’ so we stopped. And as she got a little bit older, she said, 'You know what? I think I want to give it another go.' So, it’s been really fun the chance to do it together, it's very special,” Shanna gushed.
Growing Up Supermodel documents Atiana’s rise to fame as a model, with Shanna guiding her along the way, as the former Dancing With the Stars contestant is hopeful her daughter will learn from her career missteps.
“I don't think you have enough time on this program to hear all the mistakes that I made,” Shanna laughed.
“I think I put a lot out there on social media and I shared probably more than I should have,” she added. “My ex [Barker] and I would breakup and we would have arguments on Myspace. It's just things that you just don't do. You don't need to air your dirty laundry, you don’t need to trust everyone. Make sure you set yourself up properly.”
