Tabloid Frenzy

When Shelley was cast as Charlie's newest Angel in late-May of 1979, the tabloids went into a frenzy. "The Charlie Girl Becomes A Charlie's Angel" was the headline Aaron Spelling was hoping for when he asked this Supermodel to join the Townsend Agency, and it was exactly what every tabloid (well, actually, everybody) eventually said. In those tabloids, many things were written about Shelley that were true; as well as... uh... Well, they were tabloids after all. But  publicity was publicity, and the interest in the new Angel was intense that many articles about her came out as soon as the announcement of her Angel-dom was made.
