Shelley Long: A Celebration

By Courtney Enlow | Miscellaneous | May 9, 2013 | Comments ()


Nothing is going on today, celebrity-wise. So, today, I'm taking a me-day. And what me wants is to celebrate Shelley Long. Because I do what I want and you can't stop me. For you are not my mom.

Shelley Long was and is a superb individual, responsible for some amazing performances in some amazing television programs and films (and some not-at-all amazing films, but I love them anyway). Do you not love her? WELL, YOU ARE WRONG, AND I WILL JUDGE YOU FOR YOUR WRONGNESS.

Shelley Long is good at parties.


Shelley Long knows how to tell a good story.


Shelley Long throws face shade without a single word.


But she's good with the words, too.

Finally, Shelley Long will throw the hell down.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Welldressed

    You are 99% correct. Troop Beverly Hills may be the shit but, I must inform you: Shelly Long in fact Does Not Have Back.
    Black man out.

  • The Pink Hulk

    Ya know, for years now, I've been toying with the idea of getting a Troop Beverly Hills badge tattoo on my shoulder. This just cemented that decision.

  • Melina

    I love Hello, Again like it's my job...which only makes sense because I really like my job too.

  • E-Money

    I'm glad someone else understands how important Troop Beverly Hills is. As a member of a Girl Scout troop who lasted all the way through high school and whose motto was "We love not camping" (Troop 252 represent!) Troop Beverly Hills rang more true that you'll ever know. Khaki wishes and cookie dreams ya'll.

  • e jerry powell

    Katherine Heigl makes Shelley Long look even better.

  • The Kitastrophe

    Every person who tells me how much they hated Diane just counts as another affirmation to me on how she absolutely killed that role.

  • That scene from money pit is the greatest. Hanks laugh is so wonderful and over the top.

  • miradeebz

    You've used the Diane gif I made for your post! Deeply honoured lol I love Shelley :D

  • The Freddie! Love this!

  • I desperately wanted my Brownie troop leader to go wildly off-handbook as she did in Troop Beverly Hills. And that wardrobe in Hello Again is to die for.

  • Nic

    I LOVE Shelley Long in Dont Tell Her it's Me. What an awesome movie. I feel like her every time I try to explain to my littles why they shouldn't do something.

  • Alan

    I have a memory of Shelley Long in some very serious business tv movie. She is in an attic talking to some guy, having a breakdown or something and says in the BEST way, "Light my cigarette, or I'll kill myself."

  • PDamian

    I've always thought she was the best thing about Cheers. I've heard her castmates didn't care much for her, and I always felt like she was the Jane Curtin to their Not Ready for Prime Time Players. Don't care. Curtin was underrated, and so was Long. Thanks so much for a celebration of a terrific actress and professional!

  • Kristen Mc

    Shelley Long is rockin the shit outta this mustache.

  • Sherry

    That movie was drastically underrated. It was hilarious.

  • Bothari

    "Nine years of ballet, asshole!"

  • jmd

    I love Troop Beverly Hills. Great guilty pleasure movie that I always catch when it is on TV. You guys should do a "where are they now" from that movie!

  • ShagEaredVillain

    Shelley Long: a Celebration OF A WOMAN WHO IS STILL VERY MUCH ALIVE.

    Everybody breathe.

  • I needed to check too.

  • damnitjanet

    I adore Shelley Long. Always have. Hello Again? Super-fun. Troop Beverly Hills? HILL-arious! And, best of all....THE MONEY PIT!!!! Dear God, if that movie doesn't crack you the fuck up every. damn. time. there is something horrifically fucking wrong with you.

  • John W

    I loved The Money Pit.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Shelley Long pirouettes canyons to defeat evildoers. (sorry, I'm gif incapable.)

  • lowercase_ryan

    Can't unsee the Dave Foley thing...

  • Llp

    Dave Foley made a beautiful woman. It's a FACT.

  • Guest

    Yep, sad to agree but K.I.T.H era Foley in drag made a pretty woman.

    With a passing resemblance to a young Isabella Rossellini (post pic not the one below).

  • SottoVoce

    Never noticed the resemblance before--thanks for pointing it out.

  • DarthCorleone

    That face shade shot from Cheers? Quite possibly the best episode of the show ever.

  • $27019454

    Cheers was never the same after she left. Rebecca? Ew. No one was as good as Diane Chambers. You cannot convince me otherwise. My fingers are in my ears and I CANT HEEEAAR YOU LALALALA

  • Amberlark

    Which episode is it?

  • the chaplain


  • Courtney, thanks for this. It made my day. :)

  • lonolove

    Jesus, I thought she had died when I saw the headline! Good going. Hahaha...what a relief.

  • Pnut

    Ha, I did too! I couldn't believe it. Phew!
