body into shape. She has a post-workout snack. Welcome Suzanne somers. We always have to talk sex when you're here. I know. I was the most reluctant sex sim bomb, but here I am at this age going -- You were reluctant? Why? I was young and you don't feel worthy. When I look back, I was like you looked good. I didn't think of her as sexy, but she was. She didn't know it. I talk about her like she's not a real person, but she actually is. D sometimes have dinner with her? Sometimes. All of a sudden the eyes went like and then the hands and -- I didn't think that was sexy. T outfits, the shorts. She was all sex appeal. Every girl I've receiver does that. Their posture is like this and -- and a couple that -- We can an interview yesterday and I guess she had a bad experience with sex in the beginning of her life. As a guy raising daughters, you want to make sure they have a healthy view of love and everything that comes with it. Did your parents talk to you about sex? No. Was your first encounter good? No one talked about it really. Here is my sex talk. I was helping my mother in the about 12 or 13, and she said, oh, you have hair under your arms. She said do you have it down there, too? Were you embarrassed? That was my sex talk. That was it. Down there. And I just knew down there -- I should look, nobody should look, we shouldn't talk about it, because it's down there. If about it was good, it would be up there, but this was down there. Someplace bad. Now with the internet, I'm really sorry for you to have to go through this. So you never talked it out with your parents? No. I got pregnant when I was 17, so we probably should have talked it out. That your first love? No. Two years later, I met Hammel. And I've been with Alan since I was 19. Whoa. Honestly, it's something special what we have. Right place, right time. What is the key through all those years? I'm sure looking back there had to be -- You fight for the first ten years. We really did. And I can't remember what we were fighting about. I think we were fighting about a level playing field but neither of us knew that. We finally had to find that groove. And then we were blending families which is really hard. And nowworks because we take care of each other. Is there ever a time that you threw in the towel or got close? During the blending families time, I really think both of us had those thoughts. There is no child who wants a new parent. So there is a built-in resistance. And I understand it. I wouldn't want new parents. So that was -- but we made it. Do you think most couples should try to stick it out longer? I think so. We never fight any more. In my tone raises a bit, it hurt his feelings and vice versa. We're just -- I don't know what this is at this stage of life, but it's the best thing I've ever experienced. I said to him the other night, we were driving home, now, I'd had two tequilas, but we were driving home from the restaurant and I said to Alan, I think this year is the happiest year of our lives. And it's all been happy. What did he say? Yes, dear. Right. We date two or three times a week. That's key. A date could be -- I write all day and he'll buzz the intercom do you want a date? That means let's meet in the bar in the dining room. We sound like alcoholics. But -- So my next question, can do you hormone therapy and still do a few cocktails. Obviously you can. Because you're not drugged. You you made an appearance on the real how wives of Beverly hills. I did. That's next.real how wives of Beverly hills.
