Era magazines in Spain consistently reported that Cheryl Ladd was jealous of Shelley Hack from the get-go, because Shelley's height made her uncomfortable and she felt dwarfed by it. Ladd also wanted to be "the only blonde on the show". They further claimed that Cheryl bullied Shelley, often to tears, and constantly walked into the producers' office and demanded Shelley's lines, so as to diminish the role of Tiffany Welles. (Ladd was often the star of the episode, since her arrival.) Indeed, Tiffany incidentally had less and less to say as the show progressed. Eventually, Ladd threatened to walk unless Shelley was fired, the Spain magazines reported that she got her way: rather than deal with the drama, Shelley chose to leave on her own. However, it would appear that none of this ever made the U.S. press. It is unclear if there ever was any truth to these published facts, or from where they were obtained, but Spain fans still hold Ladd directly responsible for Shelley Hack's departure. Strangely enough, as if to expunge her mea culpa, in later interviews, Cheryl Ladd often claimed that she took one look at Tanya Roberts when she came on-board, referred to her as the "b" word and said something to the effect of: "I don't want to work with her, she is too sexy!" This was supposed to be a self-humbling declaration on Ladd's part. See more »
With hardly any exception, whenever the angels went "undercover", they always used their real first and last name. This wouldn't occur in real life. See more »
Once upon a time, there were three little girls who went to the Police Academy; and they were each assigned very hazardous duties. But I took them away from all that, and now they work for me. My name is Charlie.

OMG, I grew up watching this show! Well, at least the first 30 minutes each week as I was in elementary school and my bed time would not allow me to watch the whole episode unless it was the holidays or summer. However, this was my favorite show growing up, I loved it! There were Charlie's Angels dolls, bubble gum cards and stickers and on and on and on. We used to play Charlie's Angels in the neighborhood and at recess as I was like any other little girl in America during this period. I loved Charlie's Angels, played Charlie's Angels and wanted to be just like Jaclyn Smith when I grew up. I think it would be neat if they did a reunion at some point. Now my generation is bringing it to the big screen! Great stuff!
