“Thank you for creating this opportunity, babe,” DeWitt said to Somers, who called the moment “very emotional.”
The women hadn’t spoken since Somers was fired from “Three’s Company” in 1981 after a bitter contract dispute. “There's been ick in the air,” Somers said of the falling out, after explaining that she was a single mother who really needed money. DeWitt commiserated with Somers over the “chauvinism” of the show’s producers who “could not respect the feminine contribution.”
DeWitt and Somers quickly put aside any bad feelings to talk about show, remember the late John Ritter and sing the “Three’s Company” theme song. Watch these moments below.
