loved her in coach. Also in Fantasy Island. She seems like a sweet person.

I like Shelly. From the time I watched her in `Donna Reed`, to the Elvis movies, and `Johnnie Angel`, she just aleays seemed to personify the American teen-girl, romantic figure that guys go for. I hope she has recovered from her liver transplant all-right.


I just discovered what a curvaceous bod Shelley had when I viewd her bikini pics on this site. I met her on a local Tampa Bay, Fl TV show in 1989. She has a very sweet nature. Hubby Mike Farrell is one lucky guy.
