Suzanne Somers Wiki Biography

Suzanne Marie Mahoney, simply known as Suzanne Somers, is a famous American businesswoman, actress, author, as well as a singer. To the audiences, Suzanne Somers is perhaps best known for portraying the character of Carol Lambert in a sitcom called “Step by Step”, as well as her role of Chrissy Snow in a sitcom with John Ritter and Joyce DeWitt entitled “Three’s Company”. “Step by Step” first aired on television screens in 1991 and continued its seven season run until 1997. In the series, Suzanne Somers played the matriarch of the Foster family and was one of the main characters of the series. Prior to her role in “Step by Step”, Somers was among the primary actors in the “Three’s Company” series. The show was largely successful among its audience, and even though it was initially doomed by network observers to fail after six seasons, “Three’s Company” proved its worth by gathering a large viewership for its midseason return and became the highest-rated midseason show in the history of network television. The ratings of the show continued to rise over the years and it stayed on air for two more seasons, completing its eight season run in 1984.

As an actress, Suzanne Somers started out with minor film and television roles, including an uncredited role in “Magnum Force” with Clint Eastwood and a drama series starring James Garner entitled “The Rockford Files”. Eventually, Somers was cast as Chrissy Snow on “Three’s Company” and became a recurring face on television screens since then. During her acting career, Suzanne Somers has starred in “Keeping Secrets”, “8-Track Flashback” series, and more recently made a guest appearance in a reality series with Kathy Griffin called “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-list” and “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”.

In addition to acting, Suzanne Somers became known for her infomercials, especially since she became a spokeswoman for the “Thighmaster” product.

13Somers' former Three's Company (1976) co-star, Joyce DeWitt, reunited with Somers on her online talk show, "Breaking Trough". It was the first time, that the former friends spoke to each other since Somers' firing from Three's Company (1976) in 1981, after she demanded a hefty pay raise.
14In 1970, she auditioned for Playboy's Playmate of the Month and got as far as a test series of photos taken in the Mexican jungle. She was fully nude except for a gold chain around her waist. Playboy decided not to use her at the time, but paid her $3,000 for the test. After she became a star on Three's Company (1976), Playboy published the entire series of photos and the handwritten Data Sheet that each potential Playmate fills out (in which she gives the year of her birth as 1947). At the time of its publication, she was a popular (and for her, lucrative) spokeswoman in a series of TV commercials for Ace Hardware. Following the publication of the pictures, Ace abruptly fired her, citing the contract's morals clause.
15According to Somers' second autobiography, when she signed to do Three's Company (1976) in the spring of 1977, she was to receive $2,750 per episode - it was (and is) standard practice for a beginner on a series to get "scale plus 10 percent", the 10 percent to go to her agent at the time, Jay Bernstein. Somers says she promised Bernstein *all* of the money if he would book her into every guest appearance he could find for her, which he did.
16In January 2007, her Malibu seafront home was burned to the ground.
17Mother-in-law of Caroline Somers.
18She was the fourth actress to be hired for the "Chrissy" role on Three's Company (1976). Actress Susanne Zenor played "Samantha", a Chrissy type in the first pilot. After being rewritten as "Chrissy Snow", ABC hired then fired Denise Galik, replacing her with Suze Lanier-Bramlett. After ABC reviewed the 2nd pilot, they dropped Lanier and hired Somers.
19Received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7018 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California in January 24, 2003.
20Mother of Bruce Somers.
21Younger sister of Maureen Gilmartin and Daniel Mahoney.
22Daughter of Marion Mahoney and Frank Mahoney.
23Stepchildren (from Alan Hamel): Stephen Hamel and Leslie Hamel.
24Hired Jay Bernstein to manage her and do for her what he did for Farrah Fawcett.
25She and Joyce DeWitt did not speak for 30 years after leaving the show in 1981. Finally, in February 2012, they reunited after Suzanne invited Joyce to be a guest on her web series "Suzanne Somers: Breaking Through".
26Studied Marilyn Monroe's poses from her movies, and then copied them for media photos during her Three's Company (1976) days.
27Was arrested in 1970 for passing bad checks; the charges were dropped when she paid restitution.
28Was named Las Vegas' Female Entertainer of the Year in 1986.
29Appeared as a contestant on The Dating Game (1965) in 1973.
30She was also the brunette walking along the beach of the opening credits of the first three seasons of Three's Company (1976). She was wearing a wig.
31Announced on Larry King Live (1985) that she is battling breast cancer, and that she is undergoing homeopathic treatment against the will of her doctors. She also underwent liposuction in an effort to deal with the effects of the cancer. [March 2001]
32Initially, got the role of "Jill Munroe" in Charlie's Angels (1976), but lost it to Farrah Fawcett.
33Graduated from Capuchino High School. Was active in drama.
34At the beginning of the 1980-1981 season of Three's Company (1976), she asked for a raise from $30,000 an episode to $150,000 an episode (equivalent to $450,000 in 2014) and 10% ownership of the program. Those requests weren't met, and then boycotted the second and fourth shows of the season, claiming false excuses such as a broken rib. ABC forced her to finish out the remaining season on her contract, but decreased her character's role to 1 minute a week in taping. She was escorted by a security guard to a sound stage behind the set, where she filmed her few scenes, because she was no longer allowed on the set with John Ritter and Joyce DeWitt. Somers was then fired after her contract expired, and she sued ABC for $2 million, claiming her credibility in the business had been damaged. The suit was settled for about $30,000.
35Associated with the Thighmaster exercise device.
36While performing in Las Vegas, she had to paint one shoe red and the other black in order to learn the choreography of the dance numbers. She could not tell her right from her left because of her dyslexia. In 1990, founded the Suzanne Somers Institute for the Effects of Addictions on Families, in Palm Springs, California. In 1991, she won the Humanitarian Award from the National Council on Alcoholism.
37When she was age 16, she hit her father over the head with a tennis racket to stop his abuse during a drunken rage. He suffered a concussion, and did not speak to Suzanne for two years.
