Gossip columnist Liz Smith has died. The 94 year old passed away at her Manhattan home yesterday.
She chronicled the lives of celebrities for more than 3o years. Her “Liz Smith” column ran in several newspapers, including the New York Daily News and the New York Post from 1976 to 2009 before continuing online.
Smith was best known for using a kinder, gentler writing style to showcase movie stars, politicians and other famous figures.
Although Liz was married and divorced twice, she never had any children and leaves no immediate survivors, though it’s presumed that the philanthropy she engaged in while alive will continue in her passing.
