Shelley is gorgeous in this promo still for Frederick Forsyth Presents A Casualty of War, 1989. The TV movie is part of a series of Forsyth thrillers released from 1989 to 1990 which are all currently available in a DVD box set.

Shelley in a 1991 article about infomercials, the newest trend at the time. Infomercials rose in popularity in the '90s and Shelley was one of the first celebrities to join the bandwagon via a David Kibbe makeover video. She would later do another one for Theracel.
Shelley joined other celebrities in the sort of campy and fun Celebrity Guide to Wine, a special/documentary/guide to everything about wine which was released in 1990. Hosted by Spago's then maître d’hôtel Bernard Erpicum, the special tackled common questions many people had about the “Do's and Don't's of wine drinking, serving, etc.
The other celebrities included the special are Dudley Moore, Kelly LeBrock, Steven Seagal, Whoopi Goldberg, Herbie Hancock, Peter Weller and Robert Loggia. It was directed by Daniel Helfgott.
The special was released on VHS and LD, but you can watch it on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXvOvd5xVYU
"Make-up should always give a woman a healthy natural look" according to Bill Blass in 1977. Shelley wore this Great New Look from Top Designer Blass for Ultima II Charles Revson in the October issue of Harper's Bazaar that year. And Shelley is gorgeous!
Shelley wore her hair in a modified Gibson bun for this poster in 1980. The Gibson Girl was illustrated by Charles Dana Gibson and was the feminine ideal in the US from the late 19th to the early 20th century. The hairdo made a brief comeback in the late '70s-early '80s. Oh, and I love Shelley's sporty outfit, so cute.
Is being a Charlie's Angel a blessing or a curse? That's what this article (from the Feb 17-23, 1980 issue of TV Times) is about. Has the show wreaked havoc on the Angels' personal lives?
The article tells us about the highs and the lows of becoming a Charlie's Angel. It tells us how Kate, Farrah, Jaclyn, Cheryl and Shelley try to balance their fame with their personal lives.
Since the article came out in 1980 (during the show's 4th season,) only five angels were included. But it's interesting that many thought Jaclyn Smith was going to quit the show and wouldn't appear on the 5th season. It's also interesting that many speculated that Priscilla Presley would take Jackie's place (Apparently, Pris was the leading contender in case Jackie did leave.)
Shelley's first foray into film was a short cameo in the 1977 Oscar Best Picture Winner Annie Hall (she was credited as Shelly Hack.) Directed by Woody Allen, the film is widely considered to be among the greatest film comedies of all time, influencing film styles as well as fashion. Shelley's hilarious and short but, oh, so memorable appearance in the film is on YouTube.

A short write up on the on the TV movie Death Car on the Freeway appeared on TV Guide in September of 1979 as one of "This Week's Movies." Shelley was then the new Charlie's Angel with just two episodes under her belt.

Charlie’s Angels Angels Go Truckin' [Television Series Episode] Season 4 Episode 2 airdate: September 19, 1979 genre: action/adventure Directed by Lawrence Dobkin Written by Richard Carr
Cast: Jaclyn Smith as Kelly Garrett Cheryl Ladd as Kris Munroe Shelley Hack as Tiffany Welles David Doyle as John Bosley John Forsythe as Charles Townsend (voice) Guests: Joanne Linville as Maggie Brill Royce D. Applegate as Bingo James Carrington as Sam Willis John Chappell as Cafe Manager James Crittenden as Bobby Lee Mickey Jones as Bo Mackey Bill Zuckert as Sherriff
Charlie assigns the angels
to investigate the mysterious robbery of pharmaceuticals worth a million
dollars. The trucks carrying the shipment went through a normal run
but discovered they were carrying sandbags when they reached their
destination. But how did the switch happen? Maggie Brill, a friend of
Charlie’s, managed the trucking company that was robbed, and she hired
only female drivers. So Kris and Tiffany were sent to trucking school,
while Kelly went to work at the truck stop where the original drivers
made their only stop. With Maggie’s consent and Charlie’s connections,
Kris and Tiff went though the same route, routine and shipment (they
even encountered the same people) the original drivers went through and
ended up with the same result, they were carrying sandbags. Kelly
pieces everything together and all three angels discover the mystery
behind the clever switch, a staged set of events to divert attention
from a very quick cargo exchange at the truck stop. And the brains
behind the robberies? No other than Maggie herself who wasn’t just
Charlie’s friend but was actually his employee as well. Because Charlie
owned the trucking company.
This episode is one of the best episodes of the season, if not the
best. In fact, this gem of an episode is at par with any 1st season
episode and is probably one of the best of the entire series. The story
was so interesting with many twists and turns, a surprise ending,
plus, a delightful epilogue (one which was very Charlie’s Angels, I must
point out.) The supporting cast is to be commended as well.
As the second episode of the 4th
season, the rapport between the three girls was coming along really
nicely. The banter between Cheryl Ladd and Shelley Hack can be likened
to the banter between Kate Jackson and Farrah Fawcett in "Hellride," the
first episode of the 1st season (you would also notice there were
scenes where Tiff was so big-sisterly to Kris.) They were so much fun
to watch and you wanted to see more. The dialogue between the three
angels was so natural and the little bit of humor and teasing between
them was delightful.
Shelley Hack did so well. She was so likable as Tiffany in this episode.
Furthermore, acting-wise we can see that she could handle the
material. I don’t know why they were saying that she couldn’t act and
why she wasn’t given much to say or do until four more episodes into the
season, but in this, she made Tiffany Welles a solid character. If
the series continued in this direction, things would have been very
And the episode definitely took
advantage of Shelley’s endlessly long legs with shots of Shelley
striding around in those super tight jeans and mile-high boots (which by
the way, was so chic.) And sorry to the late Johnny Carson. Her T may
not jiggle, but you will notice in this episode that the girl’s got
The the way the story unfolded was
so smart, and the action sequence in the end (Tiff kicks butt!!! Go,
Tiff!!!) was certified Charlie’s Angels. It was amusing to see the
classy Tiffany passing herself off as a truck driver, which could have
been played up more. The attraction between Tiff and Sam Willis was so
cute and could have been played up more too. It could have done better
with a little more reaction-to-action sequences (especially, in the
angel’s banter sequences.) But all in all, great episode.
And what I really loved about it was the epilogue. All the smiles and the funny dialogue was so reminiscent of a 1st season episode-ender. And the three girl were so so lovely, especially Shelley who, as we saw, deserved to be an angel. WE BELIEVE IT, WE BELIEVE IT!
Shelley in a spread for Vogue in 1974 called the Glamour of Gold. She shows us that "it's the year for black... and gold is the glamour way to wear it." The spread also featured Shelley in probably her sexiest editorial ever as she modeled black lingerie "to wear under black at night." Shelley never looked so chic.
