Dancing With The Stars, Season 20

ABC/Craig Sjodin

A major regret we have after watching the Dancing With the Stars premiere: not ordering a thighmaster sooner!

Come on, did y'all see Suzanne Somers' legs? At 68, the Three's Company icon is rocking some of the best gams on TV, and she knows she looks good! "I am just putting myself out there the way I am," Suzanne tells E! News, adding that a conversation with a major fashion icon totally changed her way of thinking when it comes to aging.

"My friend Tom Ford gave me a line one day that was so liberating. He said, ‘You know, Suzanne, you would look strange without wrinkles,'" Suzanne reveals. "And I thought, here is one of the fashion icons, with the greatest artistic eye, and he liked me the way I looked. So I've decided just like, be healthy and happy and in love and keep challenging myself."

And surprisingly enough, the biggest challenge for Suzanne during the premiere was wearing tennis shoes instead of heels!

"I'm looking forward to heels," Suzanne says. "It's a little known fact, I was born in Manolo Blahniks! My first steps were in stilettos!"

After rocking sneaks for her cha cha to Olivia Newton-John's "Physical," which earned her and partner Tony Dovolani 25 points, Suzanne admits, "I have not been in tennis shoes in… I don't remember when!"

To hear more from Suzanne and Tony, including why he doesn't want her stepping on scale during the competition, watch the rest of our interview with the fun pair above!

DWTS airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
