    Default Brooke Shields' Mom, Teri Shields, Dead at 79

    Brooke Shields Mom Teri Shields Dead At 79 | E! Online



    Teri Shields, who, for years, managed the career of daughter Brooke Shields, passed away in Manhattan last week. She was 79.

    Her death, according to The New York Times, followed a long illness related to dementia.

    A single mom, Teri started Brooke on the path to fame when she got her an Ivory soap ad at 11 months.

    Why was Brooke Shields walking with a cane at the Met gala?


    But Teri definitely raised eyebrows when she arranged for a photographer to take nude pictures of Brooke when she was only 10 and allowed her to play a prostitute at age 11 in the 1978 film, Pretty Baby.

    As a teen, Brooke starred in a series of provocative Calvin Klein jeans commercials in which she famously said, "Nothing comes between me and my Calvins."

    Mother and daughter also appeared in three movies togetheróWanda Nevada, Endless Love and Backstreet Dreams.

    However, Teri and Brooke, now 47, eventually parted ways professionally in 1995.

    Sad, especially as Teri suffered with dementia for many years.

    Wasn't much of it alcohol and drug related?

    I'll never forget Kathy Griffin's bit on going to Brooke's wedding and interacting Teri. My ribs started aching I laughed so hard.

    Wait, I thought that in spite of her exploiting Brooke, in terms of the sexually charged roles she had her take, Terri was always with her and watching like a hawk to make sure the usual pervs and leaches didn't get to her. Which I think is a pretty big difference and maybe the reason Brooke didn't turn out like Lohan.

    I thought so.

    Me too.

    She exploited her daughter - nude pics at the age of 10, the jeans commercial and the early movies but made sure she was the only one to exploit her, I guess.

    She may have exploited her daughter to some degree, but Brooke went on to graduate from Princeton, has a successful career AND a successful marriage....also is a respected actress. RIP

    I dealt with Teri in a business environment about 20 years ago. She was a ditz and literally spinning around at the service desk. After completing the transaction, Teri grasped my hand and said "You'll have to meet Brooke someday!"

    At the adjoining station was Ossie Davis, a complete class act. I was so annoyed I hadn't stalled and gotten him instead of Teri.

    Brooke seems kind of OK, though.
