Suzanne Somers is such a consummate comedy pro, even her health crises are funny.
Page Six hears that fire trucks and an ambulance came screeching into the driveway of the “Three’s Company” star’s Palm Spring home over the weekend — only to find her in perfect health.
The 76-year-old star told us that she and husband of 46 years, Alan Hamel, diligently take each other’s blood pressure reading every day.
But on Sunday, “Alan got a reading on me he didn’t like, but he took it again 8 or 10 more times to be sure. For the first time ever, we 911,” she said.
“Within a few minutes two teams arrived, one from the fire department and one with the ambulance,” she told us, “They hooked me up with their gear… and said I’m fine.”
“So what was it? Our blood pressure monitor was faulty,” she told us.
“A big kiss and big hugs to our incredible fire department,” added the eternally amorous Somers, adding characteristically, “Plus, they were all movie star handsome.”
A couple of years ago the former ThighMaster spokesmodel said that she and Hamel, who is ten years her senior, have sex “three times before noon.”
“At this stage of life, most people think that’s, you know, over the hill, too much information,” she explained on Heather Dubrow’s World podcast. “But what time is it, like noon? I’ve had sex with him three times so far today. What is it about 4:30 in the morning that suddenly, there he is? I’m going, ‘Could you just wait until the sun comes up?’”
They’ve been married since 1977.
She’s had longstanding struggles with cancer.
