SUZANNE SOMERS

Chrissy Snow, Three’s Com­pany

Toronto Sun - - SHOWBIZ ENT -

Suzanne Somers played the beloved dumb blond Chrissy on ABC’s Three’s

Com­pany. But as the sit­com was en­ter­ing its fifth sea­son in 1980, Somers sought a raise on par with her co-star John Rit­ter (from $30,000 to $150,000 per episode, plus 10% of the show’s prof­its). Af­ter she skipped sev­eral tap­ings, her on­screen time was re­duced and she was re­placed by Priscilla Barnes. The show con­tin­ued on for an­other four sea­sons, in­clud­ing a spinoff. “Life isn’t fair,” Somers told The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter in 2015. “Get­ting fired for ask­ing for a raise wasn’t fair, but I landed on my feet and I’ve done OK.”
