Restaurateur, former model, B. Smith reveals Alzheimer's battle

Restaurant owner and former model B. Smith battles Alzheimer's. 

More than five million Americans have Alzheimer's disease. There is no cure, and many patients suffer in silence. Now, a public figure has revealed to CBS News that she is one of them: B. Smith, the restaurant owner, designer and decorator. Asked what her Alzheimer's diagnosis meant to her, B. said, "It meant something bad — really bad to me."



Barbara Smith was one of the first African-American models on the cover of Mademoiselle. In 1986, she opened her first B. Smith restaurant in New York City, and two more followed. She hosted a TV program, wrote books and was called the Black Martha Stewart.
