Shelley in an ad for "Homes $weet Homes"
a Charlie's Angels episode aired in 1980

In 1979, Shelley joined the cast of the biggest show on TV, Charlie's Angels, as the newest Angel - joining incumbent Angels Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd. Shelley was a Supermodel and was already known as THE Charlie Girl when she joined up, so Charlie's Angels seemed a step for her in the right direction for her (she wanted to become an actress). Her casting made headlines around the world. She became a superstar before she even filmed a scene for the series.

TV was changing then. The gritty dramas and action-oriented cop shows of the '70s were becoming passe. Glamorous nighttime soaps were coming into vogue; and Angels wasn't going to be left behind. Shelley was a certified glamour girl. She was a intellectual who could wear glamorous fashions with the best of them. Injecting style into the 4th season of the series was a priority. "We're bringing back the glamour" proclaimed executive producer Aaron Spelling; and the clothing budget for the season went through the roof. Some of the best fashions were worn on the episode "Homes $weet Homes" where the Cheryl/Kris posed as glamorous real estate agent, Jaclyn/Kelly as a glamorous socialite looking to buy a house and Shelley/Tiffany as another glamorous socialite looking to sell a house.
