Suzanne Somers has died at the age of 76 according to Page Six. The site noted that her longtime publicist R. Couri Hay confirmed her death saying, “Suzanne Somers passed away peacefully at home in the early morning hours of October 15th. She survived an aggressive form of breast cancer for over 23 years. Suzanne was surrounded by her loving husband Alan, her son Bruce, and her immediate family.”
Somers has lost her 50-year battle with cancer, just one day before her 77th birthday.
