THE LEGEND OF GOSSIP LIZ SMITH DIES AT AGE 94

NEW YORK LOSES ANOTHER ICON

A never-before-seen interview with Liz Smith



It is very sad that Gossip Legend Liz Smith has passed away. Having known her for almost 30 years, she was a legend and a lady with class.


Before the Internet and before cell phones and faxes, you knew you made it in NYC if you had Liz Smith's phone number to give her a juicy item or to just chat. I would often call and do both.


In the early days in my career in the 80's, I would be at so many events with Liz Smith.  Liz was always laughing, always happy and always the toast of the party. I really like her.

The last time I saw Liz Smith was on second ave a few months ago. She was using a walker and heading to dinner. How I wish I went to dinner with her to talk about the 'good old times'. 


The above video from the NY Times is great. Also the history of Liz Smith in the New York Times is very interesting reading.  New York City has lost another icon!
