Kathy Lee Gifford

  1. Shelley Hack, Charlie’s Angels, TV, 1979-1980. When Kate Jackson quite after four seasons of jigglevision, NBC’s future Today breakfast talk show hostess (2008-2013) was a suggested replacement. But the suits said her she was no looker – just as they late told Hack she was no actress. The series was structured around Kate and utilised many of her ideas, title included – better, she insisted, than… Alley Cats! Hack was succeeded in turn by Tanya Roberts, finally helped achieving producer Aron Spelling’s first plan of a blonde, a brunette and a radhead as Charlie’s private (originally, Harry’s) private eyefuls. “When the show was #3, I figured it was our acting,” said Farrah Fawcett. “When it got to #1, it could only be because none of us wears a bra.”
