Suzanne Somers is the luckiest woman in the whole, big, wide world.
The onetime "Three's Company" star, now 66, revealed Tuesday on "The Talk" that she has an active sex life. A very active sex life, with Alan Hamel, her husband of 36 years.
How active? Try twice a day, girlfriends! "He's on hormones, I'm on hormones ... ," Somers said by way of explanation.
When the roar of "The Talk" panel subsided, details were demanded. When? Back to back? Spread through the day?
With her guy, she explained, "There's some level at 4 in the morning and then I'm really awake around 8 or so. We have busy mornings."
So much for the snooze alarm.
It's not as if the info came out of nowhere — Somers, who's promoting her new book "I'm Too Young for This," told Katie Couric last month that she's having the best sex of her life.
"A healthy person is a sexual person," Somers told Couric. "You know, it's all biology. Well first of all ... I desire him, to begin with."
Second of all, she said, he showed up in every past life she touched on during a past-lives experience in Santa Fe. The couple have been together for 45 years -- and, it appears, perhaps much longer than that, if you believe in reincarnation.
Somers, a breast cancer survivor, doesn't rely on pharmaceuticals or over-the-counter drugs to stay vital, she said last week at a stop in Toronto. Instead, she uses about 60 supplements, creams and a daily injection of human growth hormone to stay feeling young, according to the Edmonton Journal.
She admits she's no scientist, and she has her critics among the medical profession. But, she says, "How I became this [self-styled health advocate] seems kind of perfect to me because I love being my own experiment."
And experiment with twice-a-day results.
