A spokesman for Brooke Shields has released a statement indicating that her mother Teri Shields has died in Manhattan at age 79 after suffering for many years from dementia.

As a single parent, Teri managed her daughter's career that began with an Ivory Soap ad when Brooke was 11 months old.   The stage mother later came under fire for allowing her 13-year-old to appear in a nude scene while portraying a child prostitute in the 1978 film 'Pretty Baby.'  Two years later she appeared in nude scenes while filming 'Blue Lagoon.'

A series of provocative Calvin Klein ads also caused an uproar over the tagline, "Nothing comes between me and my Calvins."

The mother-daughter duo had a stormy relationship and became estranged for many years.  In later life Brooke revealed, "I grew up in an alcoholic household."

In 2009, a tabloid reporter coerced Teri Shields to leave her nursing home and ride around with him in a car.  Brooke Shields was furious with the nursing home for allowing the stranger to walk away with her ailing parent, in a failed attempt to get her to provide salacious details for a story.

Shields has been married to television writer Chris Henchy since 2001.  They reside in New York with their daughters, Rowan, 9, and Grier, 6.

Actress Brooke Shields has been in Los Angeles preparing for her stage role in a new musical.  The former child star has been seen sporting a cast on her arm from an injury sustained while working.

Shields' rep told People magazine, "Brooke broke her hand during rehearsal for Leap of Faith.  The ensemble cast has some time off before previews on Sept. 11th.  It was a minor break and did not affect the production schedule."  According to the rep, her hand cast will be long gone by then.

Brooke will be co-starring with actor Raul Esparaza at the Ahmanson Theatre.  Opening night is slated for October 3, 2010.

Metropolitan police in London have removed a nude childhood photo of actress Brooke Shields, entitled Spiritual America, from an art exhibit called Pop Life: Art in A Material World at the Tate Modern.

Artist Richard Prince's image is of a Garry Gross photo taken in 1975, and commissioned by Teri Shields when her daughter was 10-years-old.  The shot, intended to enhance the child's career, showed her standing in a bathtub while wearing heavy makeup, with her skin oiled up and in a provocative pose.

London police were alerted by Kidscape, a group that campaigns against child abuse in the U.K.  The group feared that the exhibit could be a "magnet" for pedophiles.

Photographer Gross, 71, said he never considered the photo pornographic but acknowledges that "she was supposed to look like a sexy woman."  He went on to say, "The photo has been infamous from the day I took it and I intended it to be."

Shields career was managed by her mother, who allowed her to play a child who lived in a brothel in the 1978 film Pretty Baby, which included several nude scenes.  She was eleven when the movie was filmed.  Other provocative films included Wanda Nevada and Blue Lagoon.

Brooke was the youngest model to ever appear on the cover of Vogue at age 14 and also appeared that same year in a controversial print and TV ad for Calvin Klein jeans, with the tag line "You want to know what comes between me and my Calvin's?  Nothing."

Actress, wife and mother of two beautiful daughters, Brooke Shields became a star at a very young age and spoke about her one health regret and the pressure of self image in a recent Q&A on living.health.com website.
"Not learning to love the way I looked earlier.  And I think I would have had sex a lot earlier! (Laughs.)  I think I would have lost my virginity earlier than I did at 22.  I had the public and all this pressure, and I wish I had just gotten it over with in the beginning when it was sort of OK.  I think I would have been way more in touch with myself.  I think I wouldn't have had issues with weight --I carried this protective 20 pounds (in college).  It was all connected.  And to me, that's a health regret."

The actress has since gotten in touch with who she is.   A strong advocate on many fronts, she has taken up the cause of educating women about postpartum depression.  Based upon Brooke's early experiences and lessons learned,  she is able to be a wonderful role model for her daughters, and will likely help them to become strong and secure young women.

Shields graces the June 2009 cover of Health magazine.  Check it out below.

  • brooke shields is furious
  • 75 year old teri shields has dementia

Brooke Shields has been besieged by paparazzi for the past two weeks following her casual involvement in an altercation that landed Kiefer Sutherland in hot water with police.

Shields has reported that she happened to be near Sutherland when she was accidentally jostled by Jack McCollough.  A very inebriated Kiefer proceeded to break the famed designer's nose, in a misguided attempt to defend Brooke's honor.

Shields has since provided sound bites to numerous media outlets, expressing her disbelief that she is now being stalked by the press over something that was really never her deal to begin with.

A heartbreaking blow to the actress was the discovery that her 75 year old mother Teri Shields, who is being cared for at an Old Tarpan, New Jersey nursing home because of dementia, has now been drawn into the tabloid fray.

Old Tarpan Police Department Capt. Thomas Shine notified Shields that they were summoned to the nursing home at 3:00 p.m. Thursday to look for Teri Shields.  The home had allowed two men, reportedly freelancing for the National Enquirer, to check her out of their facility.  When she had been absent for an extended period of time, they grew concerned and phoned for police assistance in locating her.

Teri Shields was found next door at a restaurant, but Brooke has come to understand that the reporters drove her around town while trying to solicit information that they could use for a tabloid story.   Police found her in the company of one man, and walked her back to the assisted living facility.  They questioned the freelance reporter about the incident, though his photographer had already left the scene.

Brooke Shields is reportedly upset with the care facility that she entrusted with her mother's care and infuriated by the actions of the tabloid reporter.  It seems likely legal action will be forthcoming in this very unfortunate incident.

Actor Kiefer Sutherland turned himself over to authorities at 4 p.m. yesterday at the New York First Precinct, where he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault.  The arrest stemmed from an incident last weekend where he headbutted designer Jack McCollough while attending a Met Ball after party.

Kiefer was fingerprinted and photographed and then was able to leave the station around 6 p.m., after spending two hours in police custody.

Normally, a third degree assault charge is not a big deal in the eyes of the court.  However, Sutherland has other legal issues.   He is currently on probation for multiple DUI offenses, served 48 days in jail last year, and could end up serving a year behind bars and be levied a $1,000 fine if the court is not sympathetic.

As far as the headbutt goes, word is the designer bumped into, and knocked over, actress Brooke Shields.  Sutherland claims that he was just defending the actress.  Brooke's rep said nothing happened to her.   In fact, Brooke blames the fall on a combination of factors, including her six-inch heels, the late hour and the fact that it was crowded and dark at the party.

Sutherland is due back in court on June 22.

lipstick jungle still has life

NBC Entertainment co-chair Ben Silverman says that Lipstick Jungle may have new life with its recent move to the Friday night lineup.  Late last week rumors were running rampant that the show, in it's first season, had breathed its last.  Not so.

Lipstick Jungle is a comedy drama about three high powered women, played by Brooke Shields, Kim Raver and Lindsay Price.  Filmed in New York City, the network has aired nine or the first seasons 13 episodes.  The remaining four shows will definitely air, with the hope that if they see viewership growth more episodes will be ordered and the crew can go back into production.

The show actually picked up 50 percent more viewers this past Friday when delayed viewing (DVR's and other devices) was included in the measuring equation.  The network also received an outpouring of support from fans.  Both are promising 11th hour developments.

Brooke Shields had this to say when questioned over the weekend: "Our bosses are saying, 'You're not canceled, don't worry.  We're just trying to figure out how to make this make sense.'  I mean, we're basically No. 1 if you look at DVR.  And you look at all that.  So the public IS watching it."

The Lipstick Jungle premiere party was hosted by Maybelline and looking at the pictures of Brooke Shields, it's not hard to see that she's the belle of the ball.  Is it possible that she gets better looking by the minute?

The forty-three years old actress has two daughters, Rowan Frances and Grier Hammond with her television writer husband of 7 years, Chris Henchy.  Obviously being married and a mommy are a comfortable fit for Shields.

Brooke plays Wendy Healy on the hit show Lipstick Jungle.  You can catch the NBC show on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. central time.   Shields has a role in  "Hannah Montana: The Movie" which is scheduled for 2009 release.
