“Smith, 64, began her career as a model and was one of the first African Americans to grace the cover of Mademoiselle…She went on to become a pioneer in the lifestyle area, an expert in food and home entertaining. Around four years ago, Smith noticed that she was repeating herself and forgetting things.” http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2014/06/06/b-smith-reveals-she-has-alzheimers/10056007/
B. Smith is such a classy woman.
I have never understood why she wasn’t more popular with mainstream audiences. I mean if I know the names of racist Paula Deen and foul-mouthed Gordon Ramesy (he does crack me the %^&*! up), folks should know more about B. Smith.
Smith hosts the show “B. Smith With Style” on the Food Network. She has also appeared on several TV shows.
