On the anniversary of iconic model, actress and reality star Anna Nicole Smith’s death, “20/20” exclusively features her now 14-year-old daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, as she visits the most influential places in Anna Nicole’s life for the first time with her father, Larry Birkhead. On the journey they travel to Mexia, Texas, where Anna Nicole spent part of her childhood. They meet her high school friend and see the places she frequented before becoming famous.
While in Los Angeles, they visit several sentimental locations, and Dannielynn sees for the first time some of Anna Nicole’s memorabilia from her life and career, tucked away in a storage locker following her death.
