Valentine's Day Party

Shelley at the Charlie's Angels Valentine's Day Party in 1980

Shelley attended the Charlie's Angels Valentine's Day Party at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California in Feb of 1980. According to People magazine in 1980, all the show's principals (Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd and David Doyle) "got a telegram inviting them back next year - except Shelley" and that she only found out about it the day after. Shelley told E! in 2002 that she never expected to be in the show for more than a year - which was already plenty for her. It seems Shelley was somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of attention her tenure as an Angel generated. As a very private person, her leaving the show must have been a welcome relief.
