Shelley appeared on the July 1979 issue of Us magazine
In around June of 1979, it was announced that Shelley was definitely playing Angel no. 5 Tiffany Welles on the mega hit TV Charlie's Angels - after the mistaken announcement by the press that Bond Girl Barbara Bach was taking over Kate Jackson's slot on the show. Everyone wanted to get to know Charlie's newest Angel, so Shelley was hounded by the press even before she filmed any scene for the series. One of the first writeups about her came out on Us magazine where she said she saw the opportunity as more than a chance to smile and look pretty.
