Suzanne Somers may be making a return to television as she and her husband, Alan Hamel, have reported that they are in the “earliest stage” of creating their very own reality television series.

“At the moment, this is just an idea that is in development,” the former Three’s Company star tells People magazine in a recent interview.

“We have been doing our Facebook Live and IGTV shows Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the past few years,” Somers adds. “Which has evolved into the possibility of a reality show.” 

The seventy-five-year-old actress went on to note that, while excited about this new venture, even she is surprised about her impending return to television.

“After five years on Three’s Company and seven years on Step by Step, and a couple of years on Candid Camera and 14 movies and a couple of music specials, I thought ‘I’ve done it,'” Suzanne Somers explains.

Somers has even turned down a few opportunities along the way.

But, Somers notes, there was something about the idea of an unscripted reality series that appealed to the actress.

‘Threes Company’ Star Likes The Idea Of Reality TV

“The idea of doing an unscripted show and flying by the seat of my pants is an attractive concept,” she explains. “And exactly what we have been doing for the past few years online, so we will see.” 

Suzanne Somers and eighty-five-year-old Alan Hamel will be celebrating their forty-fifth wedding anniversary next month. And, the couple is not new to working with each other on a variety of projects.

Hamel, a former television executive even works with his wife’s own Suzanne Somers beauty brand, which focuses on organic skincare and makeup.

Over the years, Suzanne Somers has been candid about her long-lasting relationship with her husband. And how the two manage to keep the romance alive after all this time.

“I’ve never enjoyed anybody in my whole life the way I enjoy Al,” the Three’s Company star has said about her husband.

The star even notes that as they have kept things exciting in the relationship, even as they age.

“There is juice and zest in this chapter!” Somers says of her golden years with her husband.

Of course, Somers notes, as with any relationship, it takes work to keep things going over time.

“We worked hard to get to this place where we’re comfortable,” Somers says of her long-lasting marriage. “And we are so content together,” she adds.

One secret to their relationship, notes Somers, is the focus they put on spending time together.

“We dance together, and we have a cocktail together at night,” Somers notes. “It’s romantic and sexy. And it’s not old people romantic. It’s cool!”

While focusing on spending quality time together is key to their lasting relationship, Somers also notes that the secret to their successful marriage starts each morning, when the couple gets out of bed.

“We don’t fight and we don’t have moody days,” she says. “I wake up in the morning with a spring in my step.”
