Comedy Divas Dish

Former Three's Company stars Suzanne Somers and Joyce DeWitt have buried the hatchet. After 30-plus years, the comedy icons are clearing the air. It's the reunion we've all been waiting for: Chrissy Snow and Janet Wood.

Suzanne SomersThree's Company is arguably one of the funniest sitcoms in TV history. The series ran for an impressive eight seasons and introduced us to the comedic stylings of John Ritter, Suzanne Somers and Joyce DeWitt.

But in the early '80s, Somers left Company after a highly-publicized salary dispute. During the fifth season, she was temporarily replaced by Jenilee Harrison, followed by Priscilla Barnes who permanently filled her shoes.

Because of the circumstances surrounding Somers' exit, many assumed she cut ties with her castmates, specifically Joyce DeWitt. As time passed, the actresses kept their distance, which fueled rumors of a bitter rivalry. Now 30 years later, Chrissy and Janet are together again.

DeWitt recently made a guest appearance on Somers' web series Breaking Through. It was the first time in three decades that the former co-stars had a heart-to-heart. "I'm glad we're going to do this," admitted DeWitt.

During their time apart, the actresses have taken very different career paths. DeWitt has returned to theater, while Somers went on to star in another ABC sitcom called Step by Step. She's also become an advocate for healthy eating and exercise. Do you remember those Thigh Master commercials? We do!

You can watch Somers and DeWitt's long-awaited reunion below:

Three's Company ran on ABC from 1976-1984. It earned two Golden Globes (for John Ritter and Norman Fell) and one Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (also Ritter).
