Roommates, join us in sending prayers to the family and fans of former model and TV personality Barbara Smith, better known as B. Smith. 

Her husband Dan Gassy announced late Saturday night via Facebook that she had passed away in their Long Island home following a years-long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease, according to the Chicago Sun Times. B. Smith went public with her Alzheimer’s diagnosis in 2014. She was 70 years old.

B. Smith’s career began in the 1970s when she modeled but she was most known for being a lifestyle icon, hosting the syndicated cooking and home decor series “B. Smith With Style” in the early 2000s. She also launched her own home collection at Bed Bath and Beyond in 2001 in addition to writing three home entertaining books.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones during this difficult time.
