John Ritter, the late actor who starred alongside Suzanne Somers and Joyce DeWitt on Three's Company was honored by Somers last week on Dancing With the Stars.

It was week four on Dancing With the Stars when Somers--along with her pro dance partner Tony Dovolani--showcased the time she spent as Chrissy Snow on Three's Company with the late John Ritter.

“This one’s for you John,” Suzanne Somers said, with tears in her eyes. “It’s the dance that Chrissy and John never got to have.”

Fans of Three's Company will note that Suzanne Somers wore here hair in the style she was so famous for during her days on TV with both John Ritter and Joyce DeWitt.

Just a couple of days before her memorable performance, Somers posted a photo of herself with John Ritter to her Instagram account.

"A legendary comedian and even dearer friend. I love you, John," she captioned the photo.

John Ritter died suddenly at the age of 54, back in 2003. In addition to starring as Jack Tripper on Three's Company, he also starred in 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter.

Suzanne Somers should be proud of the way she honored John Ritter last week on Dancing With the Stars. Not only did she dance beautifully, she danced in memory of her beloved friend.
