One of the biggest blonde bombshells of the 1970s, we all adored her in the sitcom Three’s Company.
Yet, Suzanne Somers has dealt with significant health problems, loss, and unpleasant ups and downs recently.
She is real, hilarious, and encouraging, which is why I have always adored Suzanne Somers. The well-known actress, singer, novelist, businessperson, and health advocate has demonstrated her ability to think creatively and act boldly.
She began playing in game shows, movies, and sitcoms in the late 1960s and early 1970s, which is when her acting career began. Following her role in Three’s Company, one of the greatest TV sitcoms ever, where she played sassy blonde Chrissy Snow, the 76-year-old actress was propelled to celebrity.
Suzanne was a character on the show who played the traditional dumb blonde. She will always be Chrissie from Three’s company to many of us.
Sadly, her departure from the series was contentious. All of the explanations for why Suzanne Somers was forced to leave Three’s Company involve money. Some claim that her issue was wanting to be paid the same as John Ritter, the show’s “true” star.
After four seasons on the Emmy-winning TV show, Suzanne demanded a significant pay increase in late 1980. The fact that the men on the show were paid more infuriated her. The accomplished actress made the decision to stand up for what she believed in and made a demand for between $30,000 and $150,000 per episode. So what was ABC’s answer? They told her to walk.
