Suzanne Somers, 75, has been fighting cancer again




Suzanne Somers‘ husband Alan Hamel shared some heartbreaking news on Monday.

The 87-year-old producer said that his wife, the star of the 70s sitcom Three’s Company, has been keeping a low profile these days because she has been busy fighting cancer.

‘She has now dealt with her cancer once again. On June 6, she got an all-clear, but cancer is tricky and we will now closely monitor everything going forward,’ he told Page Six.

Hamel then said: ‘All her doctors said if she didn’t lead a chemical-free, organic life supported by bioidentical hormones, she wouldn’t be with us.’

Alan added: ‘Suzanne has lived with cancer all her life. In her 20s, she’d also dealt with two hyperplasia… which is the waiting room for cancer.’

Alan did not specify what type of cancer Suzanne, 76, experienced recently.

Sad turn: Suzanne Somers’ husband Alan Hamel shared some heartbreaking news on Monday. The 87-year-old producer said that his wife, the star of the 70s sitcom Three’s Company, has been keeping a low profile these days because she has been busy fighting cancer. Seen in 2018
Her health is better now: ‘She has now dealt with her cancer once again. On June 6, she got an all-clear, but cancer is tricky and we will now closely monitor everything going forward,’ he told Page Six

In her thirties she battled skin cancer and in her fifties she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Though she is now cancer-free, Hamel said, ‘We decided to put work on the back burner for now and focus on her health.’

Hamel said, ‘Cancer is a huge epidemic. A few years ago, she dedicated one of her books to 20-plus people in our lives who died of cancer.’

She also told CBS Los Angeles in 2020: ‘Even when I was Chrissy on Three’s Company, I had had cancer three times… They call it severe hyperplasia in your uterus. I didn’t make a big deal about it. In my 30s, I got a malignant melanoma in my back.’

Her daughter-in-law Caroline and Caroline’s daughters and Hamel’s daughter, Leslie Hamel, have been stepping in to help with Suzanne’s career.

‘It’s turned into this really wonderful family affair,’ Hamel said.

A hit! She came to fame with John Ritter on Three’s Company which debuted in 1976; also seen here are Joyce DeWitt, Norman Fell, Richard Kline and Audra Lindley

She has kept her looks over the decades.

The Step By Step actress shared to Park magazine in 2022 that she eats only organic and also used fresh herbs that are like ‘medicine.’

‘It’s as though nature knew we’d be bombarded with free radicals and chemicals coming into our bodies all the time,’ she explained.

‘Bringing these antioxidants into your food helps eliminate free radicals.’

Somers likes fresh herbs and spices, like rosemary, thyme, tarragon, mint, turmeric, chives, cayenne, cumin and cinnamon.

And she said to ingest omega-3 oils like olive, flax, or coconut oil, to help keep cell membranes pliable, ‘allowing air and water to flow through and flush chemicals that enter the body from food or the environment.’

Her rock: Hamel then said: ‘All her doctors said if she didn’t lead a chemical-free, organic life supported by bioidentical hormones, she wouldn’t be with us,’ he said; she is now 76
A OK: Alan added: ‘Suzanne has lived with cancer all her life. In her 20s, she’d also dealt with two hyperplasia¿ which is the waiting room for cancer.’ Alan did not specify what type of cancer she experienced recently. Seen in 2022

One of her favorite dishes is organic chicken with olive oil, rosemary and thyme. She adds sea salt.

‘When I eat this meal, I think it’s like healthy medicine I’m eating,’ she said. ‘It’s just so delicious.’

In her fifties she was diagnosed with breast cancer and that made her turn to clean eating.

‘I have to say that since I embraced health, I have never enjoyed life more,’ the northern California native shared.

‘I like the way I look. I like the way I feel. I like my energy. I have wisdom. I have perspective, and I can tell you that aging can be so incredible if you know how to approach it.’

The ThighMaster queen added it takes work. 

‘Aging is amazing,’ she said. ‘Aging is something you should aspire to and look forward to and want.’ 

But a healthy life is crucial. 

‘It’s about health; about shifting your thinking and understanding what it is that’s making us sick and how we can combat it.’ 

And when women over 50 feel achy, Suzanne said listen and heal it. 

‘We have to learn the language of our bodies: Itching, b***ing, lack of sleep, sweating, bloating, forgetfulness, being dried up; that’s the body talking.

‘Listen to your body. You can’t sleep unless you balance your hormones. When you don’t have hormones, you don’t care about sex. I mean, you can do it, but you’d rather have a smoothie. I didn’t like being there. I used to really like it, and I had three miserable years.’ 

The cover feature includes exclusive images from celebrity photographer Ron Galella, from her nights at Studio 54, her stints on Broadway as well as candid shots with husband Alan.

She told Park that between 1977 and 1980, she and Alan were regulars at Studio 54.

‘Even when it was happening, we knew that this was going to be historic, which of course it is,’ said the American Graffiti star.

‘We always stayed at the Morgan Hotel in the penthouse suite, which was filled with large bouquets of fragrant red roses. 

‘We would sit on the outdoor terrace and on beautiful nights, having a glass of wine while mesmerized by the spires of Manhattan.’

Her favorite NYC restaurant was Rao’s! ‘The first time we were there, many, many, years ago, the waiter came to the table, and I requested the wine list. He looked at me, and with a heavy New York accent, he said, ‘I am the wine list. Do you want red or white?’

‘Another evening, our dear, dear, old friend Don Rickles was at Rao’s and two wise guys walked in, impeccably dressed in gray silk suits with just enough cuff, the perfect Windsor knot, and every hair in place. Plus, they were not smiling.

‘Don got everyone there to loudly hum the Godfather theme. We thought they were going to ‘take care of’ Don, but instead they broke up, their posture changed, they were laughing hysterically, and it was Don Rickles’ night.’

Park Magazine is the ‘newest premier luxury publication for Manhattanites.’ 

Somers’ most recent book is A New Way to Age: The Most Cutting-Edge Advances in Antiaging.
