On tonight’s episode of Dancing With The Stars, contestant Suzanne Somers pays tribute to her role as Chrissy on the TV show Three’s Company, opposite the late John Ritter. At one point in her career, Somers said she was thought to be the dumbest woman in America, based on her role as the naive and air-headed Chrissy. She also had a falling out with fellow cast member John Ritter for many years. Despite this, the show was what put her on the map. With the help of dance pro Tony Dovolani, Somers brings back Chrissy’s spirit and relives her role as part of the team “Two’s Company.” This is the team name Somers and Dovolani have adopted.
It was 1977 when Somers’ life changed, starring on the number one show in the country. On DWTS, Somers talked about the connection she had with John Ritter and that she was dedicating her dance to him. Of course, the routine takes place on a mock set of Three’s Company and it carried out to the theme song of the show.
After her falling out with Ritter, Somers set that years later, Ritter’s wife actually got them together and they were able to bury the hatchet. Not long after, Ritter passed away and Somers said in a radio interview that she will always cherish that moment.
