However, she made headlines with a controversial appearance on *Dr. Phil* in 2016, where reports indicated she was struggling with mental illness. The appearance received significant criticism, and Shelley expressed regret about it afterwards. Her final acting role was in the 2023 horror film *The Forest Hills*.

Throughout her later years, she was in a relationship with musician Dan Gilroy, whom she began dating in 1989, until her passing.
