Her daughter Stella, 11, and son, Nolan, 10, with husband, artist Fritz Chesnut, especially appreciate their mom’s talent while playing with their friends.
“I play Truth or Dare [with them] and they love it,” Shannon tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “My dad was really wild and silly when we were little so it’s just so much fun.”
Shannon, 50, says the dares can take place anywhere from a street in their neighborhood to a local Coffee Bean. “I’ll say, ‘I dare you to go in and ask for an application,’ ” she explains. “Or go into an exercise place and ask if they have a gentleman’s workout. Or like I dared one of my daughter’s friends to go up to a stranger and say, ‘Isabelle? Isabelle?’ ”
