Somers says part of her secret to a lasting marriage is that she hasn’t spent a night apart from Hamel in 37 years.

The actress and entrepreneur also details the first time she had sex with Hamel on their third date after enjoying champagne. She writes they made love on the floor on a ‘tatami mat’ adding that ‘within minutes we were connected, intertwined as one.’

She also shares that he was the inspiration behind her first ThighMaster commercial, giving details on how she bought her first Manolo Blahnik shoes and decided she’d try to not get in trouble with him for spending $500 by showing them off to him while wearing just underwear.

Somers said Hamel told her ‘great legs.’ She says that the ThighMaster commercial started on her Manolos and the camera pans up her legs- with her husband in a voice over saying those exact words. 

Somers says those shoes were the best $500 she had ever spent. 

She also shares that she was in a precarious situation in the 1970s while on a photo shoot in Mexico.   

‘I went down to lie by the pool, and all of a sudden a creepy guy was there.’

According to Somers, the intoxicated man (who was working there as a waiter) offered her some weed, which she refused. He then attempted to kiss her.

‘He fell all over me, and I ran into the house,’ she said. ‘I was alone with this creepy guy and I thought, ‘There’s no one here who cares about me, if I run to the ocean what’s going to happen to me down there?’ I hid in the house and he’s going ‘Suzanne.’

She recalled hiding behind a pillar in the living room, ‘trying to be as small’ as she could.

‘I’m thinking, ‘I am just so going to get raped, or killed,” she said. ‘I had no power at all.’ 

Somers said she returned to her room because she ‘just wanted to be away from all of them.’ The shoots crew members were also intoxicated.

When she woke, she realized she’d gone from a terrifying night to a disturbing morning.

‘When I woke up in the morning I [was] being photographed by photographer guy,’ she said. ‘He’s telling me, ‘Oh, you’re so beautiful, you look so beautiful, and I shoot for Playboy, you have a good body, if you shot for Playboy you could get $15,000.’ He said, ‘Let me just take some shots.” 

Somers had already agreed to the shoot in Mexico because she was being hassled by bill collectors.

She was struggling to stay on top of  the exorbitant hospital bills after her son, Bruce, was hit by a car. He survived but it was a financial disaster for the single mother.  

The photographer offered her an ‘uncomfortable’ offer, she remembered, ‘Without consenting, I consented.’

She found out she had been chosen as a playmate. As she and her husband were pulling up to the Playboy building with a full crew waiting for her arrival- however she decided right then and there not to go in for the shoot. 

Hamel had said to her ‘Just remember, as long as you live, you’re always going to be thought of first as a playmate.’

The photos she took during her shoot in Mexico as test shots for Playboy were eventually published years later without her consent, she says. 

She ended up suing Playboy and received a settlement. 

‘We are all in control of our joy,’ she writes at the end of Two’s Company. ‘Inevitably, it’s the dark times and the negatives that are our best teachers. Life is the process of learning from all of it. The lucky ones do.’

Two’s Company is on sale now.
