Suzanne Somers has been relevant for more than three decades. She spent 21 years on network television, starring on such shows as “Three’s Company,” “Step by Step,” “Candid Camera,” “She’s the Sheriff,” “The Suzanne Show” (receiving an Emmy nomination), and “Suzanne Somers Breaking Through” on the Café Mom YouTube channel. She’s also been involved in electronic marketing, both in direct response television and home shopping, for more than 20 years, after introducing the Thighmaster in 1990, which has sold more than 10 million units. She followed that with several successful DR fitness products. “Suzanne Organics” recently launched in retail for the first time — a line of skincare, haircare and color cosmetics, all organic and certified toxic-free. Her DR products for 2014 include fitness products, DVDs, the Facemaster and an unusual fashion item. Somers presides over 13 divisions of her business, working daily with her development team to create, manufacture and market a menu of health and beauty products, apparel, organic food, books, DVDs and more.
Somers has also written 24 books on health and wellness — most are New York Times bestsellers. She lectures globally on “a new way to age” — to crowds of thousands in North America and Europe. Her website, www.suzannesomers.com, and several satellite websites attract a powerful demographic between 30 and 60 years of age. Somers is also partnered in Lifewave Nanotechnology, one of the creators of www.foreverhealth.com, a national network of integrative physicians, and is establishing a chain of breast health centers utilizing new analytical technologies. Personally, she has spent 46 years with husband Alan Hamel. They are partners in life and business. They have three children, six grandchildren and have not spent a night apart in more than 35 years.
