Life Story of Suzanne Somers

Suzanne Somers is the third of four children born to Frank and Marion Mahoney. Her father worked loading beer onto boxcars, and her mother was a homemaker. She grew up living in constant fear of being hurt or even killed at the hands of her verbally and physically abusive alcoholic father.

A single mom, she turned to modeling in San Francisco to support herself and her son. She also distanced herself from her family because her older brother and sister by then were also alcoholics.

Suzanne Somers and Ian McShane in Yesterday's Hero (1979)

At the beginning of the fifth season of Three's Company (1976), she asked for a raise from $30,000 an episode to $150,000 an episode (equivalent to $450,000 in 2014) and 10% ownership of the sitcom. Those requests were not met, and then boycotted the second and fourth shows of the season, claiming false excuses such as a broken rib. ABC forced her to finish out the remaining season on her contract, but decreased her character's role to one minute a week in taping. She was escorted by a security guard to a sound stage behind the set, where she filmed her few scenes, because she was no longer allowed on the set with John Ritter and Joyce DeWitt. Somers was then fired after her contract expired, and she sued ABC for $2 million, claiming her credibility in the business had been damaged. The suit was settled for about $30,000.

According to Somers' second autobiography, when she signed to do Three's Company (1976) in the spring of 1977, she was to receive $2,750 per episode - it was (and is) standard practice for a beginner on a series to get "scale plus 10 percent", the 10 percent to go to her agent at the time, Jay Bernstein. Somers says she promised Bernstein *all* of the money if he would book her into every guest appearance he could find for her, which he did.

Suzanne Somers in Herzbube mit zwei Damen (1976)

In 1970, she auditioned for Playboy's Playmate of the Month and got as far as a test series of photos taken in the Mexican jungle. She was fully nude except for a gold chain around her waist. Playboy decided not to use her at the time, but paid her $3,000 for the test. After she became a star on Three's Company (1976), Playboy published the entire series of photos and the handwritten Data Sheet that each potential Playmate fills out (in which she gives the year of her birth as 1947). At the time of its publication, she was a popular (and for her, lucrative) spokeswoman in a series of TV commercials for Ace Hardware. Following the publication of the pictures, Ace abruptly fired her, citing the contract's morals clause.
