‘Three’s Company’ Star Reveals Why She Turned Down Co-Hosting ‘The View’

  • “Three’s Company” star Suzanne Somers revealed that the late Barbara Walters asked her to co-host the early days of “The View” as she explained why she walked away from that opportunity and has “never looked back.”
  • During Wednesday’s episode of the podcast, “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef,” the 76-year-old actress said Walters, who founded the show in 1997, asked her to relocate to New York to help launch the series, Page Six reported.
  • “I was originally asked to be on the original ‘View’ with Barbara Walters and whoever else, and I turned it down,” Somers said.
