Suzanne Somers Rushed To Hospital After Falling Down Stairs

Suzanne Somers of “Three’s Company” fame was rushed to the hospital this week after falling down the stairs at her home.

Page Six reported that the 73 year-old actress had to undergo neck surgery after the fall, and the procedure was thankfully a success. She released a statement on Wednesday about her fall so that she could explain why she and her husband, Alan Hamel, have taken a break from their happy hours on Facebook Live at their home bar, “Big Al’s.”

“Thank you so much for all of your concern while Alan and I took a break from our normal schedule,” Somers said. “As most of you know, I have been struggling for the better part of the year with a fractured hip, and then Alan and I took an unfortunate fall while coming down the stairs at our home.”

“I had an intense amount of pain after the fall that was not resolving — even after having tequila! After several scans, it was determined I had two vertebrae out of place which was causing pressure on nerves and creating that tremendous pain,” she added. “The good news is that I had neck surgery to correct these issues and now I am on the mend! I need a bit more time to recover before I can join you again at the bar for our virtual cocktail parties.”

Hi Friends! Thank you so much for all of your concern while Alan and I took a break from our normal schedule. As most of you know, I have been struggling for the better part of the year with a fractured hip, and then Alan and I took an unfortunate fall while coming down the stairs at our home. I had an intense amount of pain after the fall that was not resolving – even after having tequila! After several scans, it was determined I had 2 vertebrae out of place which was causing pressure on nerves and creating that tremendous pain. The good news is that I had neck surgery to correct these issues and now I am on the mend! I need a bit more time to recover before I can join you again at the bar for our virtual cocktail parties. In the meantime, we will keep the sales going on our site. Watch for posts and special announcements on SuzanneSomers.com, and my accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. As always, I so appreciate your love and support. Be back soon! Love, Suzanne

This comes one year after Somers suffered a broken hip.

“I had to stay in bed for six weeks, no moving — but my husband went to bed with me,” she said earlier this year.

Somers and Hamel have been married since 1977, and they live in Palm Springs, California. Back in July, Somers revealed the secret behind her marriage lasting so long.

“He turns me on,” Somers told Fox News. “Since the day we met, I’m overwhelmed with the feeling that I can’t get enough of him. I love his smarts, I love his sexiness, I love the ‘bad boy’ in him. I know he loves me deeply. He is loyal. I trust him. I love who he is as a husband and father. He is a success in every arena. He is my soulmate. We laugh together all throughout the day … and he’s a great dancer!”
