Suzanne Somers dies at 76: Barry Manilow, Viola Davis, Khloe Kardashian mourn 'Step by Step' actress

The late Suzanne Somers, who played the bubbly blonde Chrissy Snow on the TV sitcom "Three's Company," was loved by many. Tributes kept pouring in on social media following her death on Sunday.

The actress, best-selling author and entrepreneur died early morning Sunday surrounded by her family, Somers' longtime publicist, R. Couri Hay, said in a statement announcing her death. She was 76.

News of her passing came one day before her 77th birthday on Oct. 16th. Her family was set to gather and celebrate her birthday and now will continue to honor her legacy. "They will celebrate her extraordinary life, and want to thank her millions of fans and followers who loved her dearly," her publicist said.

Singer-songwriter Barry Manilow paid tribute to his longtime friend Somers in a statement to People magazine on Sunday.

"Suzanne and I were friends for decades. She was the sister I never had and my close confidant forever," the 80-year-old told the outlet. "We shared triumphs and heartaches. Her fame in so many fields overshadowed her real talent as one of our greatest comedic actors, a loving mother, an amazing homemaker, and one of the world’s best cooks. I will miss her dearly and hope that she is now out of pain and at peace."

The two were friends for more than 40 years and were neighbors in the Palm Springs area. Of her relationship with Manilow, Somers once told People magazine that she "instantly felt comfortable with him and could let my guard down and just be."

"Sad so sad," Goldie Hawn commented on an Instagram post.

Actress Morgan Fairchild remembered her friend Somers fondly. "She was a friend & supportive when I was diagnosed with black mold," she wrote on X, formerly Twitter. "When we ran into each other, she would lean over & whisper, 'We're survivors!'"

Caitlyn Jenner shared on Instagram that "we lost a true American Icon today" alongside a photo of the two from the 70s in Southern California.

"You will be missed," Jenner wrote. "It was always a pleasure and a riot working with you over the years!"

Viola Davis shared that she grew up watching Somers on "Three's Company." "You were a joy and forever young," Davis wrote. "Rest well."

On her Instagram Stories, Khloe Kardashian wrote that hearing of Somers' death "hurts my heart." She continued: "I'll never forget your positive looking outlook on life. Your sweet heart and gentle spirit! Rest, dance, smile in paradise..."

TV personality Bethenny Frankel shared a video reaction to her Instagram Story and said, "Suzanne Somers has passed away, which is such tragic news. I had the pleasure of getting to know her. She is a force, she is groundbreaking, she is love."

In the 1990s, Suzanne Somers returned to network television. Most famously on "Step by Step," which aired on ABC's youth-targeted TGIF lineup.

She continued, "She was married to her soulmate (and) best friend … She's a family person. She's about research and fighting for what she believes in when that takes tremendous courage and it's not popular. Wow. I really, really, really had so much respect for her."

"What a wonderful person," Frankel concluded. "I'm so, so sorry. Sorry to Suzanne's family. What a tremendous loss on such a week of tremendous loss."

Somers battled cancer for over 23 years, and in July, she revealed that her breast cancer had returned. "I have been living with cancer since my 20s. And every time (it) pops up, I continue to bat it back," Somers told "Entertainment Tonight" at the time. "I do my best not to let this insidious disease control me."

The actress was first diagnosed in 2000, and had previously battled skin cancer.

Somers began landing small acting roles in the late 1960s and early 1970s, earning her first credit in the Steve McQueen film "Bullitt." She appeared as the "Blonde in the white Thunderbird" in "American Graffiti," the 1973 coming-of-age drama film directed by George Lucas, as well as brief roles in the first episode of "The Love Boat" and a 1976 episode of "One Day at a Time."

While she appeared in many television shows in the 1970s, including "The Rockford Files," "Magnum Force" and "The Six Million Dollar Man," her most famous part didn't come until she landed the role of Chrissy Snow on the ABC sitcom "Three's Company."

Somers is survived by her husband, her son Bruce, her stepchildren Stephen and Leslie, and her six grandchildren. According to her publicist, a private family burial for Somers will take place this week and a memorial will be held in
