Liz Smith, the iconic syndicated NY gossip columnist, died on Sunday. Denis Ferrara, her longtime assistant, confirmed the news to EW.

Explaining why Madonna had become a regular in her columns, Smith wrote in 2006: "I didn't always agree with what she said, or what she did, but the hysterical overreaction to her caused me, if not to defend her, then at least to put a more balanced perspective on her astonishing ongoing saga". Known as the "Dame of Dish", Smith helped usher in the era of celebrity journalism in print and television. Throughout her illustrious career, Smith worked for the New York Daily News, New York Post, HuffPost, CBS Radio, and others. Its success was due in part to Smith's own celebrity status, giving her insider access. Mr. Trump said he would buy the Daily News just to fire her, The New York Times reported earlier this year. She also wrote magazine articles and three books: The Mother Book, Natural Blonde and Dishing: Great Dish - And Dishes - From America's Most Beloved Gossip Columnist. "Still, I'm having a lot of fun". "Someone you never knew their name is on the front page, making millions of dollars or going broke, and you never heard of them before".

The man is described as having light brown skin, a medium build, and standing approximately 5'9 in height. The teen was walking in the 400 block of Hamilton Avenue, just north of Silver Avenue, at 9:25 a.m.

As news of Smith's death spread, the Today show's Al Roker paid tribute to her on Twitter.

Liz Smith attends the Edgar Awards of the Mystery Writers of America in NY in May 2003. During my time at WNBC she was nothing short of fabulous.
