Very sad to see this happen, but if you live in Malibu you know the risks and hopefully Suzanne did get the proper insurance.

By the way, she was best known for her role on "Three's Company", yes, but she was on it from 1977-1981 and the show didn't do nearly as well after she left. I'd call it a "70s sitcom", rather than credit it to the 80s.

There are two certainties in Southern California, mud slides and fires. To say it was started by someone throwing a lit cigarette out a car window is ridiculous. California law has prohibited using the landscape as an ashtray for the past 50 years at least, the warning signs are everywhere.
It would be nice if people stuck to the facts they know and not make them up for convince sake.

Yeah it sucks but don't feel sorry for her. She'll have a new mansion in a few weeks.

Who cares?

Did they donate MILLIONS to the victims of Katrina or Rita - not hardly.

They are the "rich and [in]famous" who expect the commoners to give away their loot, but don't even ask them to fork over.

They are no different than the likes of Osama bin-Laden who tells his followers to go out and blow themselves and others up, but don't have the gonads to do what they demand their followers do.

How tragic! Suzanne and Alan, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Suzanne is a wonderful entrepeneur and works very hard for her money! She has helped millions of people. You all who are making light of this need to get a life. I think the word for ya'll would be "jealous"! Suzanne, always the optimist, WILL deal with this and get through it. They are a very very strong couple. I sympathize with the both of you as you suffer through your loss. I am so sorry to hear that this happened to everyone who sufferred a loss last night.

This is a true tragedy. I hope that no animals lost their lives and that this "suspicious" fire was not caused by an arsonist. Suzanne had a rather volatile interview recently on Larry King, discussing one of her books having to do with bio-identical hormone treatment that she chose rather than chemotherapy for her breast cancer. There were doctors on this panel and one of the points Suzanne made was about how much money the pharmaceutical industry makes on some of their drugs! Could Suzanne's research have provoked an arsonist?

This was our family home ---built by my husband and myself to house our
first baby....and eventually three more. We played on every inch of that beach,
and have such fond memories of those days 1956-1974. We faced several
fires; one in 1958 took down many close neighbors homes and ours survived
with mere smoke damage. We were often ravaged by close calls, if not from
fire, from high tides. It take guts to live along that stretch...but can also be
worth it. My heart sinks now to think of the tragedy there.
