The Three's Company star from the 1970s had great success with the "ThighMaster," but Somers' business savvy didn't translate well when she moved to the kitchen. Her "Suzanne's Kitchen" make-it-yourself meal preparation franchise that provided ingredients and recipes from Somers' cookbooks for customers to make in stores failed after less than three months.
Somers' business partner, former Kentucky Gov. John Y. Brown, claimed she quickly changed the concept to use only organic ingredients. That made the project impractical and uneconomical, Brown said. She's now selling a teeth whitening system for $50. (Photo: AP)
