Suzanne Somers began her career as a model and actress in the late 1960s. She gained recognition in the early 1970s when she appeared on various TV shows like “The F.B.I.” and “The Six Million Dollar Man.” Her role as the funny but adorable Chrissy Snow on the hit comedy series “Three’s Company” brought her to fame. Her portrayal of Chrissy won her popularity and several award nominations.
During her time on “Three’s Company,” Somers was involved in a contract dispute with the show’s producers, which resulted in the show’s cancellation in 1981. Despite the difficulties she faced, she went on to have a successful career in film and television, including a recurring role on “Step by Step” in the 1990s.
Beyond acting, Suzanne Somers had a diverse career. She gained fame as a writer of popular self-help books on wellness, fitness, and health. The best-selling “The ThighMaster Cookbook,” one of her most well-known works, showed her passion for physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

She received a lot of negative feedback for her 2006 book Ageless: The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones, which discussed the controversial Wiley protocol and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. The American Cancer Society criticized her book Knockout (2009), which supported alternative cancer treatments.
Her business ventures also included the “ThighMaster,” a popular exercise device that became a cultural phenomenon in the late 1980s and 1990s. The success of the ThighMaster contributed to her status as a fitness and wellness guru.
In the early 2000s, Somers’ career took off again after she joined the cast of the hit TV show “Dancing with the Stars.” Her participation helped re-establish her as an iconic name and re-introduce her to a new generation of viewers.
