Two’s no longer a crowd for the stars of “Three’s Company.”
Access Hollywood reports that Suzanne Somers recently ended her estrangement from “Three’s Company” co-star Joyce Dewitt, following a falling out that spanned three decades.
The pair of actresses reunited on the set of Somers’ new web series “Suzanne’s Somers Breaking Through.” The reunion ended a rift that lasted thirty years. Somers told Access Hollywood that her issue with Dewitt stemmed from Somers being fired from the popular show after asking to be paid the same amount of money as the men. She said that Dewitt didn’t back her, so the two women parted — and haven’t spoken since!
Years later, the producers on her new web show suggested a reunion with Dewitt which prompted Somers to reconsider their estrangement.
“I thought, you know, everybody’s gone from that show. John [Ritter] is dead, Norman [Fell] is dead, Audra [Lindley] is dead, the producers are all dead…” she said. “It’s just me and Joyce, and we shared a moment in time that will never be again.”
When Dewitt finally arrived, it was a powerful moment for her.
“So she comes out and it was so emotional,” she said of the appearance on her web series. “Here I’m looking at someone who I spent such a moment in time with and I hadn’t seen her for 30 years and she looks great – you should watch!”
