Shields' mother criticises actress
Updated: 2008-02-20 10:09
Brooke Shields' mother has launched a scathing attack on her actress daughter for denying her access to her grandchildren.
Teri Shields is disappointed Brooke is spending so much time working on her new TV show, Lipstick Jungle, and worries she is not spending enough time with her family.
And Shields is furious she is being kept away from her two granddaughters, Frances, four, and Grier Hammond, 22 months, from Brooke's second marriage to television writer Chris Henchy.
She tells U.S. tabloid the National Enquirer, "I don't see Brooke or my granddaughters much, and if they do come over, it's only for a little while and then they're gone.
"I wish I could see Brooke, but all she does is work. But (she) always makes time to visit her friends no matter how busy she is."
Shields is also unhappy with her son-in-law Henchy, insisting he has an unhealthy influence over her daughter.
She adds, "I'm often disappointed in (Brooke), like the times she snaps: 'What do you ever do for me?' That's what her husband tells her to say. I preferred Brooke's first husband, Andre Agassi, over Chris."
Brooke Shields was married to professional tennis player Agassi for two years before their marriage was annulled in 1999. She went on to wed Henchy in 2001.
