Beloved Actress Suzanne Somers Dies at 76 After Battling Cancer
Sad news has emerged that American actress Suzanne Somers passed away at 76 after a long fight against cancer.
Her publicist has confirmed the news, stating that her family was gathered to celebrate her 77th birthday. Still, instead, they will honor her extraordinary life and express gratitude to the millions of fans who adored her.
Somers was not just an actress but also an author and renowned fitness guru.
She began acting in the late 1960s and early 1970s, appearing in TV shows like The Love Boat and One Day at a Time. However, her role as Chrissy Snow in “Three’s Company” in 1977 put her in the spotlight. She starred in the show for five out of its eight seasons before a pay dispute led to her departure.
After a break from acting, Somers returned to the screen in the early 1990s, taking on a lead role in “Step by Step,” which enjoyed seven successful seasons.
She also co-hosted Candid Camera, hosted her talk show called “The Suzanne Show,” and even appeared on Dancing with the Stars.
In addition to her acting achievements, Somers built a multimillion-dollar fitness empire, endorsing products like the Thighmaster and ButtMaster exercise equipment.
She became a best-selling author, sharing her wellness and weight loss knowledge, and launched her beauty brand in 2019.
Somers battled breast cancer in her 50s and announced in July on social media that it had returned. But she remained optimistic, declaring herself a fighter ready to face any challenge that came her way.
A private family burial will occur next week, with a memorial scheduled for November. Somers leaves behind her husband and son.
Suzanne Somers will always be remembered for her incredible talent, resilience, and impact on the entertainment industry.
