In reply to: She was 94 's message, "Liz Smith Has Died Finally" on Sunday, November 12, 03:32:04pm

Liz Smith, who chronicled the gossip among New York City's rich and scandalous for 60 years and played a key role in the high-profile divorce between Donald and Ivana Trump, has died, the New York Post, her former employer, said. She was 94.

Literary agent Joni Evans told The Associated Press she died in New York on Sunday of natural causes. Smith had recently suffered a stroke.

For more than a quarter-century, Smith's column - titled "Liz Smith" - was one of the most widely read in the world. Its success was due in part to Smith's own celebrity status, giving her insider access.

She started her own column at the New York Daily News in 1976. Known as the "Dame of Dish," Smith helped usher in the era of celebrity journalism in print and television.

In the Trump divorce, she chose the side of Ivana -- the wronged woman. Her coverage was so well-known that she became highest-paid columnist in the country. Mr. Trump said he would buy the Daily News just to fire her, The New York Times reported earlier this year.
