Brooke Shields' mother, Teri Shields, has died in New York City following a long illness related to dementia, reports the New York Times. She was 79.

Theresa Anna Lillian Schmon was born on Aug. 11, 1933, in Newark. She worked as a hairstylist, a makeup artist for Lord & Taylor and a model. She married Francis Alexander Shields in 1964, and Brooke was born the next year. They divorced when Brooke was an infant.

Through Brooke's early career, her mom became was almost as well-known as she was as Teri began promoting her daughter as a child model and actress when she was a baby. Brooke's first job was an ad for Ivory soap.

When Brooke was 10, Teri arranged for a photographer to take nude photos of her. And Teri allowed her to be cast as a child prostitute in the 1978 film Pretty Baby. Teri was also behind the Calvin Klein jeans campaign that launched Brooke into greater fame at age 15.

In an interview at the time, Shields said that people who accused her of exploiting her child were jealous and said her daughter was appealing. "They see total innocence, which is totally there," she said, as Brooke sat beside her. "And two, they have the sexy child too, they have the sexy person — that appeals to them."

As Brooke grew up, their relationship became strained and Brooke took over managing her own career. She would not comment to the Times for the obit.

She was sick for a long time and alot of that early time self medicating. Brooke grew up a terriffic lady. Mental illness sucks.

Sad to lose your Mom, but it sounds like a blessing. A long slow death from dementia is very hard on family members. I lost my dad that way several years ago. He was 83.

OMG! I'm crying as I type. I don't know if I'll be able to vote. Why did this have to happen today?

It didn't happen today. It happened last Wednesday.

Was it a Whodunnit? Are there suspects?

I though it was too strange a coincidence that Brooke Shields' mother would die before election day so, like r16, I checked the date and saw she died on Halloween and that upped the strangeness factor. Brooke Shields' mother + the day before election day + Halloween. Too spooky.

News was obviously held up until now, so it would interfere with the election today. Is Karl Rove involved?

This thread is giving me toxic shock syndrome. I totally do not get it.

I wonder if Mama Rose Shields ever called Roman Polanski, and if so, why he did not want to work with Brooke? Gypsy Brooke Shields seems like she would have been his type, at least pre-Calvin jeans commercials.

Will they call off the election? First Hurricane Sandy and now this.

Gypsy Brooke Shields? That's not a bad idea...

Had they known she was on her deathbed, they would have cancelled the hurricane.

So close too. She's a T. They could have named it Hurricane Teri.
