Shelley Smith

Shelley Smith was born in Princeton, New Jersey October 25, 1952.

Smith was a popular print and runway model in the 1970s and ’80s. Smith also acted in dozens of popular TV series throughout the ”70’s and ’90’s, although her greatest success was on celebrity game shows such as: Battle of the Network Stars,” (1979), “Super Password,” (1984-1986), and The $10,000 Pyramid (1979-1988).

Shelley Smith is currently the sole founder and president of an egg donor organization.

Excerpt from: The Portland Mercury

The information accompanying Shelley Smith’s application painted Shelley Smith as a compassionate woman, a woman who “wanted to make something positive out of her own pain.” A grainy photo was attached, featuring a tall, boringly beautiful woman clasping two 3-foot children–twins. The article tells the story of Shelley Smith, the lovely blond model, who went from the pages of Vogue and Marie Claire to two failed TV series before she awoke in 1991 “from a dream knowing her mission: to start an egg-donor program.” It was during this time that Smith also found success with her own infertility problems. After countless miscarriages, Smith used donor eggs and her own brother’s sperm to carry a full-term, twin pregnancy in 1995. The personal rewards motivated her to continue facilitating the program. “I wanted to make the process personal and gentle and rewarding for both sides,” says Smith in the article.

    I think you’d be even more impressed if you knew how genuinely nice all of these women were in person! Shelly Smith and I worked together a number of times, including bookings for Bazaar and a fashion show in LA when she had just discovered she was pregnant with twins. She was ecstatic!

    I had never known of shelley Smith until I began watching old reruns of “The $25,000 Pyramid.” I was not only impressed with her beautiful, clean look, but was astonished at the intelligence and quickness she displayed as a player. She was always clam, insightful, and won a great deal of money for many people. Am happy to know she is happy.

    I agree, Shelley was always a pleasant person and great to work with. The last time I worked with her she was just at the beginning of her pregnancy, and she was never happier!
