Suzanne Somers, who was in the TV shows “Three’s Company” and “She’s the Sheriff,” has died at the age of 76.

A message from Somers’ family was sent to the news on Sunday by her longtime agent, R. Couri Hay. The actress “survived an aggressive form” of breast cancer for more than 23 years, the statement said. She “passed away peacefully at home in the early morning hours” of Sunday.

“Suzanne was surrounded by her loving husband Alan, her son Bruce, and other close family members,” the statement said. “On October 16, her family got together to celebrate her 77th birthday.” Instead, they will honor her amazing life and thank all of her millions of friends and following who loved her very much.

She was born Suzanne Marie Mahoney and would have been 77 years old on Monday. She told People magazine about her plans to celebrate her birthday before it happened. She seemed to be in a good mood.

In an interview that came out Sunday, before she died, Somers told the outlet that she was going to be with her “nearest and dearest,” such as her “beloved husband Alan (Hamel), our three children, Leslie, Stephen, and Bruce, (his wife) Caroline, and our six wonderful grandchildren.”

In honor of the people we lost, here are the 2023 celebrity deaths.

“I heard Caroline is making her famous short rib tacos and I have asked for copious amounts of cake,” Somers stated. “I really love cake.”


In July, Somers told everyone that her breast cancer had come back. “I have been living with cancer since my 20s. And every time (it) pops up, I continue to bat it back,” Somers said on “Entertainment Tonight” back then. “I try very hard not to let this sneaky illness take over my life.”

“Like anyone with cancer, you get a pit in your stomach when they say, ‘It’s back.'” After that, I put on my armor and prepare to fight. I’m very tough, and this is a situation I’m used to.”

Somers also talked about the “big upside” of her illness, which was that it had made her relationship with her husband stronger over the years. “We have not spent one day apart in over 42 years,” she stated.

The star was first told she had cancer in 2000. She had already fought skin cancer. Some people didn’t like that Somers relied on what she called a “organic” and chemical-free living to fight the cancers. In books and on TV shows like “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” she spoke out against treatment. This caused the American Cancer Society to criticize her.

In an interview that came out Sunday, Hamel told People magazine that he has been amazed by Somers’ strength since she was told she has been diagnosed with a second case of breast cancer.

“Suzanne and I just returned home from the Midwest where Suzanne had six weeks of intensive physical therapy,” Hamel, who’s 87, said. “Even after our five decades together, I still marvel at Suzanne’s amazing determination and commitment.”

It was 1946 when Somers was born in San Bruno, California. His father was a farmer and his mother was a medical secretary. She would later say that her life was very rough. Her father drank too much and was mean to her. After giving birth to her son Bruce, she married Bruce Somers when she was only 19. After three years, they got a divorce, and she started working as a model for “The Anniversary Game” to make money. She met Hamel at this time and married him in 1977.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Somers started getting small starring parts. Her first credit was in the Steve McQueen movie “Bullitt.” She played the “Blonde in the White Thunderbird” in George Lucas’s 1973 coming-of-age movie “American Graffiti.” She also had small parts in the first episode of “The Love Boat” and an episode of “One Day at a Time” in 1976.

Somers said that her part in “American Graffiti” “made her life different for good.” Later, Somers put on a one-woman Broadway show about her life called “The Blonde in the Thunderbird,” which got mostly bad reviews.

In the 1970s, she was in a lot of TV shows, like “The Rockford Files,” “Magnum Force,” and “The Six Million Dollar Man.” But it wasn’t until she played Chrissy Snow on the ABC comedy “Three’s Company” that she became famous.Somers told CBS News in 2020 that making up the part of the sassy blonde was “intelligent.” “How can I make her likeable and beautiful? Dull blondes are annoying.” I told her what was right and wrong. “I thought it was the kind of childhood I would have liked,” she said.

The show ran from 1977 to 1984, but Somers was moved out and soon fired in 1981 after going on the record to ask for a pay raise per episode. After having a setback in her starring career, Somers didn’t let it stop her from trying new things. She started a Las Vegas act, hosted a talk show, and started her own business.

She also did a lot of infomercials for the “ThighMaster” in the 1990s, when she became their spokesman. She also went back to network TV in the 1990s, most notably on “Step by Step,” which played on ABC’s TGIF lineup for teens and young adults. It also showed a biography of her life with her in the lead role, called “Keeping Secrets.”

Somers was a very talented woman who also wrote a lot. She wrote books about cancer, beauty, age, menopause, sex, and health.

People reported that Somers will be buried privately by his family this week, and Hay said that a tribute service will be held in November.
