Everyone loved tuning in to watch Suzanne Somers on Three's Company. As Chrissy Snow she didn't just have sex appeal, she completed an comedic ensemble that was perfectly balanced between herself, Joyce DeWitt, and John Ritter. Unfortunately, ABC didn't understand her worth.

Throughout her run on the show Somers made far less money than co-star John Ritter, so when her contract was up she decided to renegotiate. Unfortunately things didn't go to plan. She told Good Housekeeping:

My contract was up [for] year six and [as I] renegotiated, it became aware that the men were making 10 to 15 times more than me, and I thought, 'I'm on the number-one show, are the men on lesser shows worth 10 to 15 times more?' So, I was fired for asking, 'cause they wanted to make an example... They couldn't have done it today, but that was the climate back then.

As one of the first three cast members on Charlie's Angels, Jaclyn Smith had the uphill battle and good luck of being on the ground floor of one of the most beloved series of all time.

While the rest of her co-stars came and went over the course of five years, Smith stuck around for the entire run of the series, something that she wanted to do because of the way that the series promoted pure girl power. She told The Hollywood Reporter:

Really, Charlie's was Aaron. He liked bright, happy, popping. He said it was 'mind candy.' It wasn't meant to be Shakespeare... The lighting was not shadows and moody. Get into their faces, get into their eyes, really look at these girls... [Critics] gave us no value... [Our characters] were emotionally and financially independent. We were making our way. We were strong — we did a lot of our stunts. We had each other's backs. I never thought of it as we were exploited in any way.
