Shelley Fabares


"I was painfully shy when I was a little girl," Shelley Fabares told us. "Luckily my mother did something about this. She enrolled me in acting and dancing school. I was so entranced with this wonderful world of make-believe that I overcame my shyness." Shelley adored being a child model. "It was such fun wearing pretty clothes. Clothes are still my passion," Shelley said. She considered going on a shopping spree great fun. Born in Santa Monica, Calif., Shelley (real name Michele) has been acting "for as long as I can remember." Her big break came when she became part of the Donna Reed family in the 60s. When her first recording, Johnny Angel (on the Colpix label), hit the million mark, Shelley was stunned. "That was one of the most exciting things that ever happened to me," she said. Shelley was freelancing since she left the Donna Reed Show. She was married to Lou Adler and later to his current husband, actor Mike farrell.
