Brooke Shields to National Enquirer: Shame On You!

Brooke Shields to National Enquirer: Shame On You!

Brooke Shields‘s 75-year-old mother, Teri Shields, suffers from dementia and was reportedly checked out of a New Jersey nursing home Thursday by a journalist from the National Enquirer seeking a “tabloid story.”

Brooke, 43, said via a statement to People: “I intend to take every lawful action against all who were involved or who authorized this despicable act. My mother Teri Shields has been diagnosed with dementia. For her safety, she has temporarily been in a senior living facility, a very difficult decision for me.”

The statement continued, “Late Thursday afternoon, I was alerted by Old Tappan Police that my mother had been signed out of the facility by two reporters of the National Enquirer … who falsely claimed they were friends of hers. They then drove my 75-year-old mother around looking for a tabloid story. As anyone knows who has a parent who suffers from dementia or Alzheimer’s, it is one of the most difficult experiences you can go through as a son or daughter. The idea that the National Enquirer took advantage of her state is reprehensible and disgusting.”

Teri was later found unharmed at a restaurant next door to an assisted living center. No arrests have been made yet but that the case remains under investigation.

Good on Brooke! She basically just said what everyone thinks about that joke of a tabloid ‘magazine’.

# 3

This story makes me sad. Poor Teri!

I hope Brooke Shields sues the pants off National Enquirer. The tabloid’s behavior goes beyond human decency.

boy, her publicists have sure been trying to get her in the news lately!

# 8

That’s right, Brooke. Go get’em girl. It’s reprehensible what they did.

Farrah Fawsett said, the Natl Enquirer paid a UCLA Medical Center employee to give them information on Farrah’s medical records.

OMG ! if anyone did that too my mum i would actually fight them
thats such a disgusting fing to do, don’t their have mother’s imagine how they would feel if someone did the exact same thing to them
then again, no one cares about their private life, so thats pretty unlikely , NO OFFENCE
and its not even that they were looking for a story, its the fact that they took ADVANTAGE of such a mentally distressing condition
completely heartless
Brooke should definitely sue
poor Terri !

#7..I was wondering when the first person would come on her with a stupid comment. You win.

wow, that’s a new low for them
i really hope they get their asses sued with a hefty fine
i mean seriously….

Teri Shields is the mother of a well known actress. What if those who checked her out were kidnappers for ransom.

Therefore, Brooke should go after the nursing home.

this is bottom of the barrel disgusting. If anyone watched Farrah Fawcett’s documentary last night, you’d see that the national enquire is known for low blows ….
Sick

some one should post their pics on the net and let them get a taste of fame after someone beats the sh!t out of them.

LIFE #10 WHY IS THAT STUPID… NO YOU WIN …!!! HANDS DOWN….
HER PUBLICIST IS BUSY…

.SO IS RIHANNA AND THE WHOLE WHO STOLE THE PHOTO CASE HOW IS THAT GOING DID THEY FIND THE PERSON WHO DID IT.. NO ..!! PLEASE AS IF THE RETIREMENT HOME WOULD DO THAT
I DOUBT AND THEY NEW IT WAS THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER…

SO WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU PEOPLE…

Uh…is this considered kidnapping?
And why hasn’t the state police and the FBI been notified?
Just dropping her off at a restaurant isn’t good enuf.
And had this been a child EVERYONE would have gone nuts.
And what if she’d wandered out into the street and been struck by a car?
Jackasses…the National Enquirer ‘reporters’. Maybe this will kill them completely, and forever.

UGH how terrible…may they *********** for this

Paps have gotten so disgusting. They need to be held accountable for the **** the pull and the lies they tell. More stars need to sue them.

BROOKE JUST TAKE MOM HOME @

I hope English is your second language because if it isn’t–you need to go back to school and learn how to write and speak the English language. What an illiterate post.

WTF kind of nursing home is that?! No reputable nursing home will let anyone take a patient out of the facility except a family member, a legal guardian, a staff member or medical personnel (ambulance etc).
.
Coming from the NE, however, nothing surprises me any more. They have absolutely no sense of common decencey whatsoever.

Enquirer says that the reporter was a 10 year long friend of Brooke’s mom and went to visit her in the facility. The mother asked the reporter/friend to take her out for a drive to run errands and he did. then they went out to lunch. all of this was cleared with the nursing home.

looks like brooke’s publicists are working overtime to keep her in the news. we”ll see if she really sues. or if this is just another attempt to keep her relevant. wonder if she’s pitching a reality show somewhere.

I hope she sues the H*&^ out of the National Enquirer! This is unbelievable but do we expect anything less from them?

This is disgusting and low, I hope she sues and ruin that magazine and ‘reporter’ (if you can call it that…)
