“I often marvel that we made it through.”

Suzanne Somers. The name alone evokes memories of her role as Chrissy – the lovable, intellectually-challenged, blonde bombshell – on the 1970s TV sitcom “Three’s Company.” Or maybe you caught her more recent performance on the hit reality show “Dancing with the Stars.” She is an actress, comedienne, singer, entrepreneur, alternative medicine advocate and best-selling author.

Yet, she’s also a stepmom … and has been for 38 years!

One thought on “Suzanne Somers Says Blended Family Life Was ‘Hell’”

  1. I am thrilled that Suzanne Somers shared her story. One commenter on the site with the story wrote something along the lines of, “Who cares? It’s not like blended families are new!” And more… I so disagree with that. Yes, of course, blended families are not new, But. for some reason, no one shares the challenges, the struggles, the heartbreak. Especially in Hollywood, where there are so many. I am so happy she took the time to tell her story- the real story. That it wasn’t all roses and happy times. Thank you Suzanne! I wish more celebrities would share… It may help all of us “regular” stepmoms.
