ShopNBC’s Suzanne Somers’ Husband Tells All On Fran Drescher Show: ‘Rolling Off’ Her And Smashing Her Favorite Vase

December 4, 2010

Suzanne Somers' husband dished on her fight tactics

We’re behind on our freelance work and have to run, but here’s our quick takeaway from ex-HSN and current ShopNBC vendor Suzanne Somers appearance on HSN vendor Fran Drescher’s new talk show Friday.

There were two eye-opening moments, and pardon us for paraphrasing. One of the topics that Somers and her husband-business partner Alan Hamel were supposed to address was how you keep your business and romantic relationship separate when you work a spouse.

So Hamel started reciting a business-related chat he was having with Somers, and then said, “And then I rolled off her.”

The audience laughed at this description of business-related pillow talk, and Somers looked rather shocked by her Canadian hubby’s comment. We guess they don’t keep business and romance that separate, from what Hamel said.

Then Drescher, the host of “The Fran Drescher Tawk Show,” noted that Somers has been quite public about the fact that she is from a dysfunctional family. Then Somers and Hamel started describing their marriage, and Hamel said that his blonde wife used to throw things at him when they fought.

Not the most flattering revelation to make about your wife on TV.

But Hamel put a stop to Somers’ bad habit, he said, when during one fight he picked one of Somers’ favorite Chinese vases, threw it and broke it.

A rather sheepish Somers conceded that his husband’s smashing of the vase ended her throwing-things days.

Hmmmmm… We would have loved to have been a fly on the wall with Somers and hubby after their appearance.
