Newest Angel

An ad for "Love Boat Angels"
a Charlie's Angels episode aired in 1979

In 1979, Shelley joined the cast of one of the biggest hit shows on TV, Charlie's Angels, as the newest Angel - joining incumbent Angels Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd. The first episode of the season was a cross-over episode between Angels and The Love Boat. The entire cast of The Love Boat appeared in the episode - which is one of the most memorable of the entire series. In fact, in 2003, the episode won the Most Amazing Cast Cross-Over award at the TV Land Awards. Other guest stars on the episode were Bert Convy, Bo Hopkins and Dick Sargent (the second Darrin Stephens on Bewitched). It was Shelley's debut episode; and it finished at number one in the Nielsen ratings.
