Yes, we know she looks like shit now, but she's full of it too. Apparently she was on The Talk recently and discussed her reconciliation with John Ritter:
"We did (reconcile). I was in a beauty salon and I hadn't talked to him in a long time. I really felt so badly because I love John Ritter and it was over a contract dispute that never should have infiltrated John and I...
"In the beauty salon, the receptionist comes over and says, 'You have a phone call... It's John Ritter.' I go over and pick up the phone and he says, 'Listen, I forgive you.' I had a little trouble with that, but I let that go, and I said, 'I love you and I've always loved you.'"
Really? Because a few years ago her story was:
"I was in the bathroom at a premiere for "Victor/Victoria" and [Amy Yasbeck] walked in and -- she's this beautiful woman. And she said, 'I am John Ritter's wife.' And I didn't know her. And, she said, 'You and John have to get together.' And she dragged me out of the bathroom and brought me to his table. And the two of us just looked at each other and hugged each other, and cried."
I usually enter bathrooms proclaiming "I am John Ritter''s wife" as well. It certainly breaks the ice.
So when John Ritter felt like forgiving Suzanne Somers, he just started calling random beauty salons, secure in the knowledge that she''d be in one of them?
It''s not a bad bet, really
Yeah, I think I heard Suzanne tell that bathroom story on Larry King.
you''ll make the ss/the talk troll''s head explode with this!
usually in the story she has Ritter tell her how beautiful and ageless she is.
I whip my hair back and forth.
Just because she gave such a brilliant performance in the "The Blonde in the Thunderbird" she thinks she can make us believe anything!
OP needs some hormone replacement therapy.
The story with Amy Yasbeck in the bathroom was what she was telling on every talk show at the time of John''s death. Never heard her tell the salon story before.%0D\
It''s not surprising - she''s exactly the type who believes her own press. I mean, she''s still telling huge lies - which she no doubt believes - about the circumstances of her firing from Three''s Company.
The telefilm of her life story revealed a range the role of Christy only hinted at. She was completely convincing as her seven year old self through to the tower of strength that finally had the courage to tell her family off.
Amy Yasbeck approached me too, except I was sweeping floors at Walgreen''s.
I''m going to have to try that R1. I guess it''s time to switch it up a bit.\
For years I''ve been entering bathrooms saying "Hello, everybody. This is Mrs. Norman Maine." \
I never have to tip the attendant.
She''s a publicity seeking ghoul. R3, she called Larry King practically seconds after Ritter had died. She basically said that when she found out he was dead, she called Larry immediately. Because when someone who you love dies, what''s the first thing you do? Call a talk show host!
According to Joyce Dewitt neither she nor Ritter ever reconciled with Somers. She said that Somers "lied to their faces" during the whole "contract dispute" and it was obvious when I saw the interview she did that she had zero interest in every seeing or speaking to Somers again.
Who are these people?
[quote]According to Joyce Dewitt neither she nor Ritter ever reconciled with Somers. She said that Somers "lied to their faces" during the whole "contract dispute" and it was obvious when I saw the interview she did that she had zero interest in every seeing or speaking to Somers again.%0D\
I remember the producers of that year''s Emmy telecast (Ritter died only a couple weeks or so prior to the awards) had wanted Somers and DeWitt to come on the broadcast together to pay tribute to him. Somers reportedly was willing but DeWitt refused due to the fact she''s never forgiven Somers for what happened between them all those years ago.
Her agent who got her fired from 3''s Company is the same agent who got Farrah fired from Charlie''s Angels. I was just thinking the other day how sad it is that MJ died at the same time and got all the attention in the press, while Farrah''s passing went ignored for the most part.
I love Farrah
Here''s an article from last year in which the author recounts a conversation with John Ritter about Suzanne Somers'' cancer scare a few years ago. Apparently Ritter said, ""I talked to Joyce and we don%E2%80%99t know if Suzanne has cancer or not, because she lies.%E2%80%9D%0D\
I would have to find a link but I''m almost positive Ritter forgave her before he died. Why is Joyce DeWitt still so bitter about shit that happened 35 years ago? I have no doubt Suzanne did some unprofessional things back then but how did it really affect Joyce in the long run? Why hold onto that for so long? I just can''t imagine being that bitter.
I saw a clip of John Ritter''s version of the reconciliatiion and he did use the words "all is forgiven" or "all is forgotten" when quoting himself.
They were all egomaniacs
The story has always been that Amy Yasbeck was the one who pushed them to reconcile. I don''t know why she''s changing it now; maybe Amy pissed her off. But she just looks like an asshole because it''s on record. And I believe John confirmed it before he died.%0D\
Also, it happened way before he died, at least a year or two. This whole "and two months later he was dead" is just her ginning up drama.
Suzanne and John were at the premiere of Victor/Victoria. Afterwards at Sardi, Suzanne was in the Ladies room and John''s wife (Amy Yasbeck) cornered Suzanne and urged her to make peace.\
Amy took Suzanne to their table, and John and Suzanne hugged and made up. \
So they reconciled PERSONALLY\
A few years later, Suzanne was at the beauty parlor in Beverly Hills when she received a phone call. It was John Ritter. They had this amazing conversation, where John asked Suzanne to guest on his show (8 Simple Rules). They were doing a ''Three''s Company'' spoof. It was to be in a dream sequence, and last 30 seconds.\
Suzanne said she would LOVE to work with John again, but not in a 30 second cameo. She felt it would cheat the audience. Plus they wouldn''t have any scene together. Suzanne felt a TV movie or a larger guest spot on his show (like Cybill Shepherd''s role) would be much better. \
That is when they reconciled PROFESSIONALLY. \
GOT IT OP?
Emmy producers were in negotiations with Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers to host an on-air tribute to John Ritter, that according to Entertainment Tonight.\
This will be the first time both ladies will be in the same room in 20 years.\
But Joyce had a few DEMANDS\
Joyce will be billed first (as in Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers); since she has longer seniority on Three%E2%80%99s Company, than Suzanne\
She will only rehearse with a stand-in\
Wants her dressing room on stage left, and Suzanne%E2%80%99s dressing room must be on stage right\
Wants Suzanne''s "People" to be informed that SHE will be wearing basic black\
Will agree to stand beside Suzanne during the tribute, but not have to look or glance Suzanne%E2%80%99s way.\
As the only original remaining cast member to appear in every episode of Three''s Company, Joyce feels justified in asking for these perks.\
As a result the whole thing fell apart.
R13 she didn''t call Larry King, he called her.\
She has said she heard about the news of John''s passing on GMA and called Amy immediately.
Amy Yasbeck put her cigarette out on me.
I''m sure Suzanne is a conniving bitch, but she has also been dominated by controlling men her entire life: her father, former manager Jay Bernstein, husband Alan Hamill. Not to forgive her, but she sounds like an adolescent.
[quote]She has said she heard about the news of John''s passing on GMA and called Amy immediately.%0D\
I remember her talking on the phone with Diane Sawyer live that morning and saying she''d just turned on GMA and heard the news. She really did sound devastated.
Actually, I thought I remembered hearing her on Entertainment Tonight that night and saying that as soon as she heard the news she ran to call them.
When I enter a bathroom, I completely empty the tampon dispenser.
She apparently ended her long relationship with HSN. She always seemed so fun and personable on there. Maybe she''s a better actress than we thought?
I used to love watching Suzanne and Colleen eat each other out on HSN!
R22: What is the definition of "if" hon?
Joyce DeWitt...now there''s a woman who knows how to hate.
r22 is telling you NOW so she doesn''t have to tell you THEN!
Have Suzanne, Jenilee, and Priscilla ever been in the same room together? That would be one catfight I''d pay good money to see.
DeWitt''s Emmy appearance demands don''t sound so outrageous. What was it that really nixed the gig?
Suzanne & Jenilee acted together in an episode of ''She''s The Sheriff'' \
Suzanne wrote in her book that Jenilee was really nervous walking on the set and immediately began to apologize to Suzanne. But Suzanne told her she had nothing to apologize about.
R36 no the final straw came when the agreement called for a full dressing room for Joyce, and a standing locker with padlock key for Suzanne.\
How can Joyce get away with this?
Joyce is a spiteful bitch. I''ve had many dealings with Suzanne and she is a fucking delight. Witty, charming, self deprecating and GORGEOUS. And believe me, she is not controlled by any man.
Jenilee and Priscilla were on Three''s Company together. Jenilee made guest appearances after Barnes became the third roomie.\
Jenilee was not too upset about being replaced. She jumped ship to Dallas almost immediately.\
Barnes loathed the male producers.
Barnes has to be one of the worst actresses of ALL time.
Jenilee was unemployed for two years before she got Dallas\
3s company 1980 - 1982\
Dallas 1984 - 1986
[quote]Barnes loathed the male producers.%0D\
Why? Did she feel they were sexist? Did Joyce feel the same way?%0D\
[quote]Jenilee was unemployed for two years before she got Dallas.%0D\
I actually thought she was a better fit in the show after Suzanne left than Priscilla, who never really clicked at all. But from what I remember hearing at the time, the producers decided against having Cindy become the permanent new roomie due to the fact she was Chrissy''s cousin and they wanted to eliminate all connections and references to the character.
Terri was a mistake in that there was nothing to her; she was, if anything, too similar to Janet, who served as a contrast to Chrissy.%0D\
Jenilee did a good job of filling Suzanne''s shoes. %0D\
What I think is ridiculous is that these NOBODIES like Suzanne or David Caruso or whoever get THE BREAK OF THEIR LIVES and, instead of enjoying it, they just want to quit and go make more money somewhere else.%0D\
Just ride the gravy trian folks; it''ll end soon enough. %0D
"Her agent who got her fired from 3''s Company is the same agent who got Farrah fired from Charlie''s Angels."%0D\
Jay Bernstein was only Suzanne''s agent for a year or so. He was neither responsible for getting her the job or getting her fired.%0D\
Her husband Alan Hamel got her fired after he demanded she get paid the same salary that Caroll O Conner and Alan Alda were making.%0D\
Her first manager was a female who got her a book deal for her poetry, several "Tonight Show" spots, the "Graffiti" film and "Three''s Company" When Hamel called the woman to say she was fired, the excuse was that she did nothing for Suzanne.
aree you nuts? She made approximately 20 million for "thigh master" alone, not to mention years as a highly paid Vegas entertainer - that paid considerably more than three''s company.
Suzanne has said she doesn''t regret a single thing in terms of her exit from Three''s Company
Jenilee has said the reason they brought in Teri was because the Cindy character had been made SO naive that she didn''t really work when the writers wanted her to make sex jokes and innuendo. Personally, I liked Teri the best of the three. But I''ve never really been a fan of the "dumb" character that so many sitcoms seem to rely on for jokes.
Suzanne did not want to get fired from 3s co. She took z gamble and lost. She was blacklisted for a while after she was sacked. Vegas was the only place that she could get work.
Joyce was just coked out and manic.
But she came out of it with a better career
"Suzanne has said she doesn''t regret a single thing in terms of her exit from Three''s Company"\
That''s because she is a sociopath.\
If she weren''t America''s most beloved Checkhov actress, she would never get away with the way she treats people.
Joyce was also angry over the fact that John didn''t personally tell her that they were doing a spin off show. She came back from vacation to find the new cast rehearsing.%0D\
She was not fond of Jenilee either. She felt that the producers were casting a Suzanne Somers replacement instead of getting an actress who, in her own words, "could actually act".
W&W for R1.
Suzanne Somers is full of pussy cheese. Just ask Audra Lindley.
I remember reading at the time that the producers of "Three''s Company," trying to capitalize on John Ritter''s budding film career (he made a few now-forgotten movies during his summer breaks from TC), were thinking of making the show more Jack-centric, even considering moving him out of the apartment altogether to his own place upstairs above the girls. Obviously, this never happened (if it was ever true to begin with) but I wonder if any of this factored into their decision to do a spinoff for Jack.
R55: Enough. It isn''t funny. In fact, it''s embarrassingly stupid. Just let it go.
I thought the Cindy character was *incredibly* dumb; I was amazed the network let her stay on the air as long as they did. Barnes was so much more interesting and gave some energy to the cast and the storylines.
I always liked there apartment, very foe.
Seems to me that the producers of Three''s Company were the guilty parties in the situation with Suzanne, she was the star and all the actors deserved a pay raise...cheap ass producers...killed her career and it really wasn''t fair.
Was I the only one who thought Richard Kline was a hottie? Used to love his tight black pants.
R57, you''re just jealous that Audra Lindley didn''t lick your pussy.
I believe Suzanne brought up her history of lying in one of her books. I believe it goes hand and hand with living in an alcoholic household and it probably goes further to explain why she kited so many NSF checks when younger.%0D\
I''m sure John and Joyce experienced multi lies thru the years and were correct in implying Suzanne''s "cancer scare" was total BS.
When I was a kid, I thought that Step by Step was enjoyable cheese. I still like it now. Who knew that a ripoff of The Brady Bunch could be entertaining and successful. I think I''ve read that Suzanne Somers is still close friends with Patrick Duffy.
She claimed in a German entertainment magazine that John''s last words were, "Ask Suzanne if she can forgive me for being such a stubborn fool! And tell her she looks amazing with blonde highlights and bangs!"
Shows how bitter DeWitt is over a TV show. Never liked her, always felt she was jealous of Suzanne, because she was a trained actress out of UCLA and Suzanne had to learn on the job, so to speak. Well in the words of the great Spencer Tracy get over yourself; acting is learning your lines and not bumping into the furniture, and I believe it was him who said, after all Shirley Temple could do it when she was 5 yrs old!!
If you saw their onscreen reconcilation, you'd know that DeWitt herself said that she was jealous of Somers for that exact reason.
Weird, but even though she said that, she seemed to have moved forward much more than Suzanne who still seems rooted in the '70s.
Hey, Suzanne, if you are reading this thread on yourself give me a call. I have an in on this new sitcom...me and you...think about the possibilities. Apparently Delta Burke and Lisa Welchel are backing out. I think we play best friends who run a craft shop or something.
Amy didn't *announce* "I am John Ritter's wife" upon entering the bathroom; she wrote it down on a section of Charmin and heaved it over the stall divider.
I always start strained conversations with "I forgive you." It's the charitable thing to do.
I think Joyce DeWitt has pussy cheese.
Joyce was mad because all she got for her commercial was a bunch of pantyhose and Suzanne kept stealing the stocking and leaving her eggs empty.
Joyce is a cunt. She is always going around saying how Priscilla Barnes is her best friend and how much they mean to each other.
If that was true than Joyce should be grateful Suzanne caused that mess because she found her best friend in the world because of it.
I watched Priscilla Barnes french kiss her dog on the old 'Hollywood Uncensored' show on E! a few years ago.
The Priscilla Barnes seasons are truly awful. Ritter and DeWitt are in full mugging mode, but as Barnes tries to keep up with them she pushes so much she looks like she's more suited for the cast of some rotten community theatre in the middle of nowhere.
Suzanne and Joyce kissed and made up on Suzanne's HSN show earlier this year. It only took 35 years to bury the hatchet!
[quote]Amy Yasbeck put her cigarette out on me.
True, but Suzanne lit the smoke.
As soon as Amy Yasbeck married John Ritter (AKA hit the jackpot) she stopped working, and hasn't worked another day since.
Who the fuck buys her overpriced crap on her website? $33 for a bottle of melatonin You can buy it at Target for $5.
Yes, R78, but you don't have the pleasure of getting a nice note with my picture on it in return.
R66, what was your agenda in bumping a dead thread from Feb, 2011? What was your reasoning? I'm interested.
r80, people bump old threads all the time.
R80, elderthreads need love, too.

They re-ran it constantly on ABC Family. They should do a TV movie reunion movie where the whole family gets together for the painfully obvious gay son's wedding to his long time partner.
I loved the episode of Three's Company where Chrissy and Jack were innocently talking and Janet overhears and thinks they are having sex.
Anyone else remember that one?
This quack never had cancer. She only pulled the cancer card after she got caught red-handed leaving a liposuction center. Oopsy daisy! She was on Larry King that night doing damage control.
I should be the one getting my lips and tits pumped up while lying on the beach in Malibu.
I've heard [bold]of[/bold] it but haven't ever seen it R84.
Boy, it sure sounds like a crazy, funny episode though.
Does Suzanne still inject female hormones into her vag?
[quote]This quack never had cancer. She only pulled the cancer card after she got caught red-handed leaving a liposuction center. Oopsy daisy! She was on Larry King that night doing damage control.
I never understood the connection if that was her story. Don't you lose weight when you are recieving cancer treatment?
Here's her Larry King damage control transcript where she pulled the cancer card:
I wanted to start a new thread but can't - Suzanne was just talking about her son pitching Huckabee to do commercials for him. Yikes! Her son is a closeted gay - common knowledge in Palm Springs though. He has a wife & kids but is a homo who is also apparently a republican! What a family of FREAKS they are. Suzanne's husband is a germophobe and they travel with 30 bathroom towels so he can cover the hotel room floors and counters with their own towels so he never has to touch anything.
I think Suzanne's face is melting.
love her or hate her, she is a great business woman.
Wait a minute, I thought it was her husband who fucked up with "3's Company." If I remember correctly, he fancied himself a manager and went in to negotiations with the show's VIPs demanding all sorts of money and perks and they laughed him right out of the office. She then was relegated to doing phone calls from another part of the studio to John and Joyce because they didn't want her ass on the set.
I think she then hired that agent who handled Farrah to try to save some face and wound up doing the Thigh Master and embarrassing herself in Las Vegas.
She's a fraud.
I'm thinking of starting a product line of 50s themed clothes; think poodle skirts and bobby sox, but with a modern twist. I think everyone would be excited to wear something from "House of Joanie"...I have this great idea to do a line of beauty products too. Would you like to get in on the ground floor?
Somers is typical Hollywood trash. She's never let the truth get in the way of a good lie. I firmly believe that for 95% of all entertainers you can't believe a word that comes out of their mouths if they're talking about themselves.
Never liked Priscilla Barnes.
I did, though, love Ann Wedgeworth as Lana.
I am John Ritter, channeling through the fingers of a senile nun in Terre Haute, Indiana, who apparently "works" in the library of the cloister and is parked in front of a computer in her wheelchair.
For the record, I NEVER forgave that conniving, bleached-out bitch, I can't wait for her to find out what's in store for her over here after the disgusting, self-serving bullshit she has spent her life dishing out. She used to stand there and rub her fingers over her tits, and it made the sound you hear when you rub a balloon. Ugh.
A perfect example of zero talent making it on nerve and knees apart. If you want an example of what zero talent is supposed to end up like, look at Joyce DeWitt.
And, for the record, I really did love to suck cock.
Somers is starting to resemble Donna Douglas. Watch her still trying to rock the side ponytail in her '80s.
"I wore my pink sweater today and smiled."
I think Somers is truly a fucking headcase. The lying about cancer thing puts her right up there with Sharon Stone as an obvious, disgusting liar.
Joyce DeWitt may be bitter but at least she doesn't go around lying about having cancer. She should be happy about that.
I have cancer.
So what I unleased AIDS on the Western World
[quote]Somers is starting to resemble Donna Douglas.
She's starting to resemble a leather Muppet.
I should have been the new Chrissy.
[quote]And, for the record, I really did love to suck cock.
It's funny you said this. Many people I know seem to think John was effeminate on Three's Compnay. Is this the general concensus?
What is so childish about the word ef-----ate? And why does it make someone bigoted if it's used to describe a man? I mean, really?
This show was on a few years ago, but most the leads in the show are all working still and are solid B- listers. It was a modest hit show which was part of a hit night for a network. Yes, a network. Not an almost network or cable, but a network. It was supposed to be good family fun, but behind the scenes were some truly nasty things going on. The object of the entire mess was this teen who has not really done anything since because she was so traumatized by what happened. When she first came to the show she got involved with one of the actors on the show who was slightly older than her. He was experienced and she was not. He was really into drugs and she was not, but she thought he was the greatest and in love and they had sex all the time. While this was going on, one of the older actors on the show also wanted the teen. She thought of him like a father figure, but he wanted to be more than a dad. Well, one day he had way too much to drink and came on to the teen. She didn't want it, but she also didn't want to get fired so went along with sex. To this day she refuses to eat the food she was eating right before this happened and has a loathing for the cologne he was wearing. When she told her "boyfriend" about it he blamed her. When she told this B- list actress on the show about it, the actress told her to never tell anyone and that kind of thing happens and it had happened to her in the past before she got too big and they couldn't take advantage of her like that anymore. Well, our teen got pregnant. When she talked to her boyfriend, he said it was not his and that she deserved what she got. When she talked to the older actor about it, he said that he was married and had a family and none of this could come out. He then had his assistant make an appointment for the teen to get an abortion and to make sure the assistant went and made sure the procedure was completed. About three days after the procedure our teen got a call from the older actor. The teen though it was to apologize or to see how she was doing. Nope. He wanted to know if she wanted to come over to his place for sex.
Show: "Step By Step"

R113, from where did that come? Now THAT is good gossip! I have a vague memory of Mitchell being married with a young kid while STEP BY STEP was airing...
Somers is also a Republican.
She recently praised Paul Ryan.
Suzanne is a marketing genius and a lovely lady!
Her house burned down and she held a press conference on a smoldering cliff in Malibu
God bless her after all she's been through
I'm going to her website right now to order some $90 protein powder
Thank you for being you
Suzie Sommers and keeping it real!
Don't forget to include the $30 bottle of melatonin, R116
Susanne and al hamel claim they met in LA at an audition she messed up and he followed her;
NOT TRUE I watch 2 of them on Toronto Canada TV show in which Hamel was the announcer if you will and was surrounded by 3 women -- 1 of who was Suanne. Hamel was very married with children and Suzanne wore tight short dresses with stilettos and thought she was pretty but a lot of the guests found her to be cheap; looking and stuP.id, My guess is Hamel's wife wanted a divorce so the 2 headed down to La;SO they did meet in LA. She was fired over wanting too mu ch money and stopped coming to reheasal which was grouns to fire heer,
My favorite Three's Company episode is the one when they have that big misunderstanding.
You know which one I'm talking about.anonymous
She is NOT a good person. Do NOT trust her. She'll only bring you pain.
R118 that was a show called 'Mantrap' and that was after they had met. They had been together at that point for about two years.
Suzanne writes in her book that she aborted Alan's child.
Suzanne is also a convicted felon having written bad checks.
Who cares about this old hag?
I can't believe anyone would say something negative about Suzanne. She is a beautiful woman, inside and out, selfless and giving.
Not like Half-Witt.
Never liked her. I didn't really care for "Three's Company" either, but it was more watchable after she was fired.
R92 I had no idea you could get cellulite on your chin.
i'm pretty sure she does a detox cleanse every week.
I remember she was on a morning talk show... trying to hawk one of her nutrition books. She claimed that she ate so healthily that she hadn't had gas in years.
That about sums up Suzanne's lie telling.
Gosh the woman is in he 60's. She looks great.
She doesn't look great. She has the "Goldie Hawn HairStyle Wig (TM)" to hide wrinkles and routinely does everything from monkey gland injections to full on whole body lifts. She is always wearing a shit load of makeup, so thick so her wrinkles don't show. If she is on tv hawking her crap, do NOT watch her on HD. YIKES
She's looking more and more like Donna Douglas doing Elly Mae. She will still be trying to rock the Chrissy side ponytail ten years from now.
She always seemed so fake. My mom rarely used profanity, but she saw Somers on some talkshow during the run of "3's Co." and exclaimed, "God, I can't stand that phony blonde bimbo cunt." I exclaimed, "Mother!" and we had a great laugh about it.
The only recommendable thing about Step by Step was the beautiful Sasha Mitchell, who's largely disappeared from view.
He allegedly had a brief thing with Madge, when he was starting out. I can believe it; she was a cougar back then.
If that's true, it's not as though there's a huge age difference between Sasha and Madonna.
Love this thread.
i thought Suzanne Somers was full of botox.
and by the way Patrick Duffy is one hot 63 year old daddy!
id finger and push him in his wheelchair and tongue him if need be.
I waited on John Ritter and Amy Yasbeck in the late 90s - super nice, lovely, lovely people. Stood behind Patrick Duffy at the AMC Theater in Woodland Hills in the late 90s....he was really handsome then...tall, like maybe 6 feet and in really good shape. That's all I got.
hey R137 i heard John Stamos used to frequent the AMC in Woodland Hills around the time he was married to Rebecca must have lived in the valley then.
The only good thing Somers ever did was 'She's the Sheriff'. LOL. Just kidding... That was awful too.
Larry's Lava Lamp
Met SS at a party a few years ago, a big celebrity filled bash (I am friendly with the woman who hosted it) and SS is a fucking bitch. Just really unpleasant, everything seemed like it was an effort for her.
I'm not old enough to remember her tv shows, all I know her from is Thighmaster and her short lived tv show, but the woman is not nice in real life. She seemed really bitter and resentful about having to be Suzanne Somers.
She's on Monday's episode of RHOBH
R138 I also waited on John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn or however you spell it...she had oatmeal, he had scrambled eggs and wheat toast. They were nice...not overly friendly like John Ritter but okay. Someone near them ordered the kipper (a whole fucking FISH on the plate, with the eyeball and it STUNK) and they both looked at me like "Seriously?" ...I said "Sooo...can I get you a side of dead fish with that?" They thought that was mildly amusing, in an "Aw, the waitress is trying to be funny" kind of a way. I did see them another time at that Woodland Hills AMC in line at the movies. I remember thinking how Rebecca R. has the weirdest body in person, like a 12 year old boy stretched out to 5' 10" tall, with smaller boobs than you'd think from photos. Kind of a plain face too. Stamos was handsome but not dreamy. Not short either.
I also saw Alec Baldwin & Kim Basinger with their daughter in that mall too...(late 90s when I lived there)...he seemed really nice, kind of pampering the kid. She never took her sunglasses off in the mall.
Kim never took her glasses off, I mean. Not the kid.
Pacific Coast Magazine proclaimed Priscilla Barnes the "Lucille Ball of the 80's". I wish I was kidding.
She was the Lucille Ball of the 80s. Lucy and Priscilla both barely had a career in the 80s.
Somers is full of shit and she's still better than all of you.
She's good friends with Kathy Griffin. That tells me all I need to know aboot her.
R147 That's actually kind of surprising. She seems like the type of person who'd be one of Kathy's main targets.
Whatever happened to Ann Wedgeworth, Sasha Mitchell, Priscilla Barnes and even Joyce DeWitt? All of them seem to have disappeared from public view. I wonder what actors and actresses like them do when they don't have TV shows.
Joyce DeWitt may have saved and invested, but the rest probably never made enough money to be set for life.
[quote]all I need to know aboot her.
what makes you think she is good friends with kathy griffin?
R132 = Joyce DeWitt's mystery child
She wasn't good as an actress at all!!!
Everything about that Somers woman is so phony and contrived. The most self-absorbed woman on Earth. Can't stand her.
R23 is verbatim a classic post from years ago. I remember it well. Thank you for posting it.
Suzanne Somers has done alot of research on the subect of diet and health. She's just as much and expert as anyone else.
[quote]Whatever happened to Ann Wedgeworth, Sasha Mitchell, Priscilla Barnes and even Joyce DeWitt?
Priscilla Barnes and Joyce DeWitt will be at an autograph show in VA in May. (scroll down, all the way down)
Why don't interviewers ever ask her about being a convicted felon for fraud?
You all are some bitter queens. Who cares what the distinction is btwn the 2 stories? Why are you so pissed at her evn if both stories conflict with each other? Get a life. Personally, I think anyone who makes more than anyone on datalounge gets ripped to shreds on DL. Try not to be so jealous, bitches.
What about her fraud conviction R160
She did plead guilty to that?

Oh for heaven's sake she has talked about it. It was over forty years ago. She was a broke single Mother and wrote a check she knew was bad. Don't make it sound like she worked Wall Street who ruined lives. What's to talk about now? She's written about and even talked about it in her Broadway show.
But it goes to her credibility
I had no idea she had written books about nutrition until I worked with a woman who lost a lot of weight following her diet plan.
She lost it fast and she looked good the entire time. She never got that walking corpse look a lot of dieters get. She's kept it off too.
I'm no fan of Suzanne Somers, but all of that was surprising to me.
She is still a con artist.
All this BS about "all you need are vitamins" to look like you've had a facelift from someone with several facelifts.
Does anyone else remember that TV movie made in 2001 or 2002 about the Three's Company behind the scenes drama?
Yes, R166. In terms of laughs it's not as great as the DIFFRENT STROKES behind the scenes, but I appreciate the nods to BOOGIE NIGHTS in terms of style.
"Okay FINE--you caught me coming out of a liposuction clinic. But it was only because I have CANCER! Someone fetch me my cancer card!"
Anyone hawking something on TV is a con artist. What makes her any different?
Does anyone know if Amy Yasbeck still promqueens into bathrooms proclaiming "I am John Ritter's wife" before dragging someone off the shitter and to her table? That I'd pay to see.
R170 I'm not sure.
How does one go about getting a thread here deleted?
that Step by Step story sounds like a pile of horse shit.
I miss having her craziness on HSN. If she was on, hawking exercise equipment, processed but not the "bad" kind of processed crap diet food, bad CZ jewelry and plastic clothes it was like a performance piece. Everything, food to clothes, made in China. And SS trying to be a dewy 22 year old.
She is clearly a sociopath. Why do these mental defectives never get called out?
R174 Isn't she on ShopNBC or one of those other lesser shopping channels now?
Wasn't she on some show bragging about awards she didn't have? Like her costars were jealous of them?
And always saying she should have gotten that raise like she was on par with Carroll O'Connor and not a non actress who lucked into that part.
The idea though of Patrick Duffy knocking up his TV teenage daughter is so ridiculous.
when she reunited with DeWitt she seemed so tense.
She is the only actress I can think of who played out her real life abortion on screen.
she got nominated for a daytime Emmy a few weeks ago.
so she is still relevant, haters!
Does Suzanne care to comment about Angelina Jolie' revelation? Suzanne cured her own breast cancer with pine cone extract, you know.
She's a switch-hitter. When I worked at ABC and she tried to blackmail a big contract out of corporate, they lined up a few of her female lovers and threatened to start leaking to the press. Game, set and match.
Former Playmate Ellen Michaels was one of her lovers.
Suzanne likes the pot-purri?
R149 Not sure about what those actors you mentioned are doing now but Jenilee Harrison who was mentioned several times upthread married Cybill Shepherd's second husband after their divorce. I read she spotted a mole on Cybill's shoulder which turned out to be skin cancer and had to be removed. So that's what Jenilee is doing :p
Perhaps John Ritter was the one who had a problem - getting his wife to retrieve SS from bathrooms so he could hug her; tracking her down in beauty salons to tell her he loved her. Maybe he was obsessed with her.
Should you be mean to a woman whose home burned down?
This is the funniest thread I have read in a long time.
What matches and lighter fluid r187 ?
[quote]Whatever happened to Ann Wedgeworth, Sasha Mitchell, Priscilla Barnes and even Joyce DeWitt? All of them seem to have disappeared from public view. I wonder what actors and actresses like them do when they don't have TV shows.
Sasha Mitchell is now my gardener. I pay him with moisturizer.
Is that moisturizer from your clammy cooter, Vicki?
[quote]Is that moisturizer from your clammy cooter, Vicki?
I don't care for such crudeness.
Bullshit, Vicki. You used fuck 4 guys at once in your Dallas dressing room, screaming out cuss words the entire time.
Charlene, you're fat.
I agree R188. I read this thread awhile back and just saw the newer comments on this last page.
Most responses 181 thru 189 have me giggling. Especially 181.
ummm, Charlene died.
Charlene's career died, r196, but she's still alive herself.
All you people are haters! SS is a lovely 75 year old with the body and the yoni of a 22 year old due to her special Somersize (TM, copyright 2013) diet, exercise regime, food, nutrition supplements, clothing and the finest fashion jewelry.
R183, Somers has been in an extra-marital relationship with Fran Drescher dating to the '80s.
With my pine-cone infused anti-carcinogenic facial moisturizer, you too cn look like a dewy, nubile 22-year old goddess!

I noticed you made a little spelling mistake there, Suzanne. Don't worry, not all of us can be perfect. I'll correct it for you:
[quote]With my pine-cone infused anti-carcinogenic facial moisturizer, you too can't look like a dewy, nubile 22-year old goddess! But with Principal Secret(TM) you can!
Why did anybody ever pay any attention to this woman in the first place? She's a plastic celebrity from a forgettable era of pop culture.
I see what you did there, Vicky P. I'm rich, healthy and rich. And you are a shriveled prune faced hag with no prospects. Go look up Joyce, she needs a roommate for her 4th floor walk-up in Fresno. First and last are needed, utilities are included.
And no pets!
Joyce, waiting for her big break
Suzanne is a convicted felon
Anybody wanna buy a trailer? It's going dirt cheap.
I can't decide on a name for my new miracle product. I've narrowed it down to three possibilities:
Any suggestions, loyal fans?
Suzanne, how much did that product placement in "Sex and the City 2" cost you?
Suzanne's Vagisizer is brilliant though. Who else thinks of these things?! She's amazing
I believe I was first to market with a vagine exercise routine.
But my pine-cone infused miracle serum is the ultimate in vagine rejuvenation! Do you want tight, youthful, and firm vagine lips, or blown out, saggy beef curtains like Victoria Principal? I thought not.
You haven't lived til you try my new all organic, all natural vagine wash and douching mist! I make it myself in my manufacturing facility behind the trailer park. "Always Fresh by Erin Moran (tm)" You want your coochi to be clean for your Chachi!
I wash my parts in the sink with vinegar and epsom salts.
Joyce, still bitter
As part of my naturalistic "Forever Dewy" rejuvenation program, I will include a free booklet on the "PRINCIPAL of Rapid Aging and General Decrepitude" that outlines the negative lifestyle choices that have cost a certain washed up 80s soap "actress" her looks and overall happiness. If you follow the "Somers Method" as clearly detailed in the booklet, you can have the face, ass, and vagine of a taut, hardbodied 22-year old goddess!
Oh, and Joyce, you can have 20% off your first bottle of my pine-cone infused anti-aging elixir. You know, because we're now friends and everything ...
Goodness! This thread has been hijacked by a bunch of has-been celebrities!
In a marketing course, I learned that some years ago Lancome sold an anti-cellulite lotion called Durable Minceur (in English, "Long-lasting Slenderness").
They voluntarily withdrew the product in the US after pressure from the FDA. But the name is available now...
Thank you for the suggestion, but I have officially branded my line of naturopathic anti-carcinogenic and age-defying products as "Forever Dewy" in recognition of my own ageless, dew-like appearance.
Perhaps Victoria wants to use that Lancome castoff for her own line of beauty *snort* products aka rendered animal sludge. Poor thing looks like a hundred-year old shitstain.
Is Suzanne still claiming, as she did last year, that she and her husband have sex every single day? Was that part of the vagicize promotion?
You have to give her her props as an actress. In her sit-com roles, she managed to play, week-after-week, someone much more intelligent than herself.
She was the Kelsey Grammar of the 70s
Jesus, at this rate the entire cast of the Facts of Life will show up shilling for some diet/exercise/hair care/fashion jewelry line.
Come to think of it, Edna's Unmentionables would be a great brand for some 80s inspired lingerie...
[quote]Poor thing looks like a hundred-year old shitstain.
Why do you think she refused to appear on the new Dallas? It wasn't salary.
I suspect it was irrelevance.
Suzanne is a goddess.
Go home you washed up white ho!!!
Wait - did she actually have a "vagisizer" on the market?
That would be really weird.
She has definitely had work done, but she still looks good for a woman of her age.
I am glad the public doesn't see her face anymore. She's so washed up.
she will outlive Cher and the cockroaches.
This cray bitch was on WWHL tonight. One fucking product plug after another. She could barely move, her skin was so leathery & her neck seems to have disappeared. Gross!
She's the best. Suzanne somers
She really derailed her career back then. She was in her 30's by the time she hit big with that sitcom. She should have left the show on a high note and made big money elsewhere. She spent years practically blacklisted in Gollywood.
She was always a self-serving phony. I never could stand her. I remember watching the first episode of "Three's Company" in the mid-seventies and thinking it was "kind of a funny show but I can't stand that phony, stuck-up looking blonde." I rarely, if ever, watched the show again. I really loathed her in interviews. She was like Tom Cruise. Everything out of her mouth sounds scripted, rehearsed, and not genuine at all. Like I said, a phony.
Loved her on Three's Company.
Hate her on everything else since then.
Actually am john ritter's wife we got married, and am a ghost :)
Former prostitute. Casting couch whore. Bisexual - slept with Liz Smith and Carol Burnett.
Was John Ritter gay, straight, or bi? I hear all kinds of rumors.
I AM JOHN RITTER'S WIFE!
R238 I hear all kinds of rumors too and I've never heard the gay or bi...except maybe on here which doesn't count. I think he was a bit of a hot dog, actually. What was that book he was in with the hooker?
The press also always sweeps under the rug that his affair with Yasbeck began well before he divorced wife #1. I guess because everyone liked working with him the media feels an obligation to keep his image squeaky clean.
Both very pretty women, though. And he really did seem like one of the few "nice" guys in Hollywood even if he couldn't keep his dick in his pants (maybe). I met him, actually - in Vail.
"horn dog " damn auto correct.
I heart Suzie!
Day and night, commercials are running on local television about her. She's giving a talk about aging or some such.
I guess that's how you know, despite all the supposed hip around here, our town (Seattle) really is still the boondocks.
Yes, she is full of shit. Krisy Snow was far from a virgin when she showed up to start with and has lied about everything in life. She even burned her own house down then blamed Janet.
Full of shit, yes. But does SHE have fleas in her cunt?
Being rejected by the flea population is not an advertisement.
You Yanks got it wrong. In the UK version, Chrissy was the brunette. Jo was the blond.
The must make 3Way Poncho in some other fabulous colors! I think they should make a 3way Kaftan as well.
Has anyone actually ever lost weight on that diet plan of hers?
Amy Yasbeck ate my pussy through the gloryhole in the lady's room at Sardi's once.
I wanted to be paid what the men were being paid.
Now she's doing commercials for actual physicians who prescribe her stupid fake hormone treatments. Quack, quack, quack!
what happened to her acting career?
[quote]what happened to her acting career?
Have you not seen "She's The Sheriff"?
Her acting career? What do you think she's doing when she makes those TV commercials and personal appearances?
Liz Smith is semi-retired now and isn't available to give Suzy the assistance she needs.
She is going to be on Dancing With the Stars this season.
I'm rooting for Suzanne all the way!
Does she still get her period?
Please, I used to see her dance at The Regal Beagle.
R260 I had no idea that the Regal Beagle had a pole!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
