Suzanne Somers biography
Suzanne was born in San Bruno, California, into a working-class Irish-American Catholic family, where she was the third of four children. Her mother, Marion Elizabeth, held the position of medical secretary, while her father, Francis Mahoney, worked as a labourer and gardener.
Unfortunately, when Suzanne was just six years old, her father developed an alcohol addiction, leading to a tumultuous environment where he would subject her to verbal abuse and public humiliation. Later in life, Somers emerged as a renowned author, focusing primarily on self-help literature.
Notably, she authored a series of books, including the well-known “Ageless: The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones” in 2006, which delves into the topic of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Additionally, she has published two autobiographies, four diet books, and even a collection of poetry.
However, it is important to note that Somers has faced criticism for her perspectives on certain medical subjects, as well as her endorsement of the Wiley Protocol, which has been deemed “scientifically unproven and dangerous.” Her advocacy for alternative cancer treatments has also drawn scrutiny from the American Cancer Society.

However, it was her portrayal of the ditzy blonde character “Chrissy Snow” on the ABC sitcom Three’s Company in 1977 that brought her the most recognition. In the same year, she also served as a celebrity panelist on Match Game and appeared alongside her husband Alan Hamel on Tattletales.
