Suzanne Somers had a medical scare at her Palm Springs home that frightened her so much she called 911, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Somers told Page Six that prior to contacting 911, Hamel was taking her blood pressure reading, just like the couple does for each other every day. However, Sunday's reading returned far different numbers than usual.

"Alan got a reading on me he didn’t like, but he took it again 8 or 10 more times to be sure," Somers recalled. "For the first time ever, we 911."

An ambulance and firetruck were immediately dispatched to the star's home.

"So what was it? Our blood pressure monitor was faulty," Somers explained. Always the comedian, a healthy Somers offered a cheeky thank you to the emergency crew members who were able to calm the couple's nerves.

After nearly five decades of marriage, the couple had no need for a Life Alert button in the bedroom. In an interview on Bravo star Heather Dubrow's podcast, Somers candidly shared details on the couple's active sex life.

"At this stage of life, most people think that’s, you know, over the hill, too much information," Somers dished. "But what time is it, like noon? I’ve had sex with him three times so far today."
