NEW YORK -- Model, restaurateur and lifestyle guru Barbara "B." Smith has died at her Long Island home, her family announced in a statement on social media.

The 70-year-old died Saturday evening after battling early onset Alzheimer's disease, which she was diagnosed with in 2013.

Her husband, Dan, said “heaven is shining even brighter now” in a lengthy Facebook post honoring her life.
