Keck's Exclusives: First Look at a Three's Company Reunion
Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers
Three decades after Suzanne Somers was escorted off the set of Three's Company (she asked for a salary hike producers found unreasonable), the former Chrissy Snow has hugged it out with her long-estranged cast mate Joyce DeWitt (Janet). In the February 2 episode of Suzanne's CafeMom.com digital talk show, "Suzanne Somers Breaking Through," the actresses share an emotional reunion. "It had been 31 years since I'd seen Joyce," Suzanne says. "It was very emotional, teary and a little nervous-making."
Sounding regretful that previous reunion attempts fell through, Suzanne explains, "We almost had a reunion a few years before John [Ritter] died, [but] the business aspect was complicated and it never happened." After John passed, Suzanne says she pitched a reunion idea to the Emmy Awards producers with her, Joyce and a photo of John. "They didn't like my idea and instead had Henry Winkler say a few words about John. Too bad... it would have been a memorable TV moment."
