    Default It's Raining The Grand Dame of "Gurly" Mags...

    http://content.usatoday.com/communit...es-at-age-90/1



    One of the biggest pioneers in magazines - Helen Gurley Brown - has died.

    Hearst announced that, "Helen passed away this morning at the McKeen Pavilion at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia after a brief hospitalization." She was 90.

    Known for bringing her Sex and the Single Girl notions into pop culture (long before Carrie Bradshaw entered the scene), Gurley Brown "was an icon," said Frank Bennack Jr., CEO of Hearst Corporation in a statement. "Her formula for honest and straightforward advice about relationships, career and beauty revolutionized the magazine industry. She lived every day of her life to the fullest and will always be remembered as the quintessential 'Cosmo girl.' She will be greatly missed."

    She was married to David Brown, who died in 2010, for 51 years. They were anchors in the New York publishing and Hollywood film communities, as he and partner Richard Zanuck produced some of the era's most memorable movies, among them, Cocoon and Driving Miss Daisy. When asked in a 2006 interview what the secret was to her long, happy marriage, she answered, "I married the right man. He is kind, compassionate and generous, not just to me, but to a lot of other people. You need to marry a decent, caring person."

    Donations may be made to The Pussycat Foundation, c/o Karen Sanborn, Hearst Corp., 300 W. 57th Street, New York, NY 10019, to fund media innovation at Columbia and Stanford Universities. A fall memorial will be announced at a later date.
