Showbiz Spy reports: The actress was left devastated by the Oct. 31 death of her hard-drinking stage mom Teri Shields, 79, and is badly shaken by the way the disease ravaged someone she loved dearly.
“Brooke saw firsthand how it devastated her mother,” a source said.
“She had to care for her mom, as well as her children, and it was difficult. She eventually had to put Teri in a skilled nursing facility.
“Brooke is really shaken up and grieving over her mom. And she’s praying the same fate doesn’t befall her.”
