Legendary Gossip Columnist Liz Smith Dies at Age 94

Gossip columnist Liz Smith, who began writing for the New York Daily News since 1976, has died at the age of 94. Known famously as “the Grand Dame of Dish,” stories were consistently front-page news, including her coverage of Donald and Ivana’s divorce. Her column then became syndicated in over 70 newspapers.

According to CNN: “But it was her sharp writing at Cosmopolitan — namely the salacious details of the romance between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton — that led to her break at the Daily News.

Her clever barbs and scathing commentary elevated her to the level of notoriety shared by the A-listers she covered — many of whom are now remembering her fondly.”
