Angels Article

The pic of Shelley used for the article was from a set

Shelley - along with Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd and Tanya Roberts - was the subject of a 1991 article that looked back on the '70s mega-hit Charlie's Angels. It had been ten years after the show's demise, but the Angels were still very much alive in everyone's psyche - although some memories about the show seem to have been muddled. For example, the ratings were stunning, but the series had already left TV's Top Ten shows by season 3. Season 1 finished at #5, season 2 at #4, season 3 at #12, season 4 at #18 (tied with Chips) and season 5 at #59. And when Cheryl came in, the ratings went up a notch higher. But Spelling's hairbrushes anecdote was quite funny, and it's interesting to know that an Angels reunion (meaning all 6 girls) had always been on his mind.
