Suzanne Somers: Where's the Thighmaster queen now?
In the late '70s, Suzanne Somers became a household name. Starring opposite the late John Ritter and Joyce DeWitt in Three's Company, she received big laughs from audiences. According to Somers herself, after starring in five seasons of the successful sitcom, she requested pay equal to that of her male costar, Ritter. Instead, she was let go.
That wasn't the end of her career, however. In 1991, Somers went on to play TV mom Carol in Step by Step for a total of 160 episodes. And besides being a sitcom staple, Somers also popularized the iconic Thighmaster, cementing her status as a pop culture icon. Still, that was in the '90s. You probably haven't heard much else about Somers or her career recently, and here's why.
