Hi there, Really wanted to know what the name of the dress that Shelley Craft was wearing tonight on Funniest Home Videos by Rebecca Thompson? I'd like to try and find one similar but would need the style name. Really hoping you can help me. Thanks Kate
Hey Shelley I believe it's been around 15 years that I've been a fan of yours. I just like to say that you are an amazing and beautiful woman who just keeps getting better looking over the year. You have really pretty eyes and a loveley smile. You are a really good host on AFHVS. A really valued tv persanality over the years. I love you and you are just simply beyond compare. Keep up the good work and the sunshine will always be there when you smile for you are the sunshine in not only part of my tv life but all the viewers out there too. Be cool to meet you one day.

Great choice on a book. I am just a fan, keep doing what you are doing.
I've seen the show ever since I was little and have always loved it! I remember I went to see the finale last year and I absolutely loved it! I'm hoping I can go again this year (or even meet you in person). Lex
Hi there i enjoy both funniest home videos and domestic blitz. All you guys do a great job. Your smile always makes me smile which i love. I notice your super power would be strength, as a personal trainer i can get that super power for you. Chat soon Cheers.
I must say. i have watched AFHVS since the early days. (Jackie McDonald)i think was the host, and ive seen em come and go. I gotta say you'd have to be my fave. Lov the eyes, the smile, the hair, the clothes, the laugh and the knees.. Do you know what CRAFT stands for. I think it's "Forgetfulness" Hope to get to a show one day. I'll look forward to that..

Has Channel 9 got a sustainability policy at all? I had hoped Channel 9 would use its influence to make more positive choices in its giveaways - 4WDs send the wrong message
