No Bumb Blonde

an article about Shelley from TV Week, July 1979

Many articles about Shelley came out upon the announcement of her casting on Charlie's Angels. She was already a supermodel by then - famous for her Charlie perfume commercials and print ads. But as many found out, this blonde was no dumb blonde. She obtained a degree in history from prestigious Smith College and studied archeology in Sydney, Australia. And not only was she well-educated, she was smart with her money as well. She bought a 224-acre farm in a rural part of New York State with her earnings, using it as a weekend retreat - away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It seems Charlie got lucky with this one.
