"When she was born Brooke looked like a beautiful doll," Teri told People magazine. "I couldn't believe she was mine."
âFortunately, Brooke was at an age where she couldnât talk back,â she told Bill Boggs a few years after Pretty Baby came out.
When The New York Times grabbed their 1994 quote about Brooke confessing her mom's alcohol, Teri said that she could not speak on her daughter's career. But then eerily said, âTalk to Brookie,â adding, âBrookie doesnât know what sheâs talking about.â
âThey see total innocence, which is totally there,â she said, as Brooke sat beside her. âAnd two, they have the sexy child too, they have the sexy person â that appeals to them.â
Mr. Boggs interrupted: âYeah, itâs the forbidden fruit.â
Teri Shields responded, âYes, and yet itâs all wrapped up in one, and that is really appetizing.â
