Maybe too much sex has addled Suzanne Somers' brain. In a much-mocked essay published by the Wall Street Journal on Monday, the 67-year-old self-help author and  star of the 1970s TV show “Three's Company” held forth on what she believes are the evils of Obamacare and the terrible effects it will have on retirees. She didn't really use facts, as such, or even logic, as such. Instead, using personal anecdotes about relatives and friends in Canada, a misremembered newsmagazine headline and apparently fabricated quotes by Stalin and Churchill, she maintained that Obamacare is a “socialist Ponzi scheme.” Here's a bit of what she wrote: “Affordable care will allow for preexisting conditions.

Face it -- celebrities take a lot of heat, particularly when it comes to their faces. And now it appears to be Suzanne Somers' turn. It started with a sensational "plastic surgery run amok" story in the National Enquirer. That led to this column by Toronto Sun writer Mike Strobel who declares "my only scare during Snowmageddon/Snowbigdeal was in the supermarket checkout line" when he saw the "Three's Company" star's face on the cover of the tabloid. The Enquirer story alleges that Somers, 64, might have had a stem cell face-lift.

When Suzanne Somers blurted out this week on TV that she and her husband are having sex several times a day, squeamish viewers might have cringed. But to students of the Somers ouevre, this was just another example of her pop-cultural brilliance.  The 66-year-old former "Three's Company" star told CBS' "The Talk" this week that she visits funky town a couple of times a day. This directly contradicted the theories of human sexuality advanced by a certain side-shaved pop star named Miley Cyrus, who told "Today" that after 40, people really don't get any action.

Suzanne Somers' life story is an inspiration for all those girls who may have had a rough start in life but who have a dream and the determination to make it come true ("The Unsinkable Suzanne Somers," by Gina Piccalo, Feb. 4). She is literally a modern-day Cinderella who started out lowly but transformed herself into a beautiful and talented princess. She has reinvented herself innumerable times, often overcoming tragedy, adversity and disappointment to do so. Nothing seems to faze her and keep her down for long.
