Reimagine That! Talks To Richard Kline About the Joyce DeWitt/Suzanne Somers Reunion; Just My Show Interviews Cosby Show's Geoffrey Owens

Richard Kline
It's an all-podcast blog today! On the eve of pop culture's historic Joyce DeWitt-Suzanne Somers peace summit, er, YouTube reunion following their legendary 31-year estrangement, Three's Company co-star Richard Kline -- TV's lovably libidinous Larry Dallas -- breaks his silence on Chris Mann's Reimagine That! about their reconciliation and offers his insights into Suzanne's contentiou$ 1981 exit from their hit 1977-84 sitcom. The accomplished stage and screen actor/director/acting coach also reveals how he's coped with the loss of his dear friend, Three's Company star John Ritter, who tragically passed away in 2003. As the breakthrough sitcom reaches its 35th anniversary this spring, Kline reveals his previous plans for a stage version of the wacky roommate farce and describes his experience as James Franco's special guest last year during the Oscar-nominated actor's bizzare Sundance presentation Three's Company: The Drama. Finally, find out the hysterical comment Richard made to a PerezHilton.com story quoting Suzanne as saying that "everybody's gone from that show."
Also, host and Three's Company tell-all author Chris Mann offers an exclusive, in-depth historical analysis of Suzanne and Joyce's separation -- including Joyce's repeated efforts to reconcile in the last 15 years -- as well as failed attempts at/missed opportunities for Three's Company reunions from the mid-'90s onward. You won't get this detailed backstory anywhere else, folks! Finally, Reimagine That! resident dream weaver Yvonne Ryba shares fascinating insights about inspirational dreams. So go listen to this MUST-LISTEN podcast from the great Chris Mann! And stay with us tomorrow for the highly anticipated reunion between Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers, as it goes viral! What a birthday present for me (Pavan) as today's my birthday.
(Back in July, we at SitcomsOnline.com also interviewed Richard Kline, so you might want to check that out as well!)
