Suzanne Somers - Sexy, Silly, Savvy & A Survivor: Three’s Company, Chrissy Snow, The Ditz, Demand For Equal Pay, Step By Step, ThighMaster, Fitness, Diet, Divorce, Alan Hamel, Cancer Advocate & Photos
Where the kisses are hers and hers and his on Three’s Company, the breezy, innuendo-filled sitcom that became a smash hit in the late 1970s, Chrissy Snow stood out. But whatever naïveté she may have brought to the delightfully ditzy Chrissy, actor Suzanne Somers doubled down in smarts and savvy in her own life. Fueled by the love of her son, Bruce, and her longtime husband and manager, Alan Hamel, Somers became an enduring comedy star, a pioneer for equal pay in Hollywood and a multimillionaire entrepreneur with products like the ThighMaster and her namesake beauty line. Already a successful fitness and diet author by the mid-1990s, she then turned her battles against cancer into a series of wellness books, further establishing herself as an influencer before that term came into fashion. In this special, photo-filled tribute issue, we look back at the incredible life and career of a woman who thrived by defying expectations.
