It’s happy news that 16-year-old Breanna Bunevacz, daughter of David Bunevacz and Jessica Rodriguez-Bunevacz, has been given a huge break in the modeling world in the US.
Breanna and her Mom landed a role on the reality TV show “Making A Model” produced and hosted by Yolanda Hadid, mother of the two biggest supermodels in the world, Bella and Gigi Hadid. Both Bella and Gigi are featured in the show as well.
“Making A Model With Yolanda Hadid” premieres Jan. 11, 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on LifeTimeTV. The show was filmed entirely in New York City middle of this year.
Jessica is so happy with the development. She told us just how blessed and grateful she feels for this wonderful opportunity. “Working with Yolanda Hadid is just amazing. I have learned so much about the modeling industry. It was truly a most enriching experience to be included in this show,” she said.
Breanna is a rising star in her own right. An accomplished equestrienne, this beautiful young lady juggles her studies and her sport quite successfully as she has been bringing home medals every time much to the delight of her doting parents.
Both mother and daughter say that this stint already brought them a lot of wonderful experiences that they already feel like winners. “To be mentored by the best in the industry is a prize in itself,” they said.
The eight-episode series features six young ladies (all teenagers) alongside their mothers who also act as their managers, living in one roof, and going through an intensive training program for models under the tutelage of Yolanda, herself a former supermodel.
Winner of this reality TV show will earn a place in Yolanda’s stable of talents as well as the opportunity to be represented by IMG management.
