Suzanne Somers lost her Malibu home when fire raged through the area.

Now, the actress is opening up to Access Hollywood about coping with the loss of her home and those who have helped her through the tough times.

Access caught up with Somers in Los Angeles at the 18th Annual Producers Guild Awards where she opened up about maintaining her composure and grace after losing her home.

"That was really my soul speaking … I just kept looking at these ashes thinking nobody died, we didn't die, we should have died. That house blew up in 15 minutes, so we should have died and we just left two and a half hours before that not knowing we would never see it again, so it's pretty shocking, but I am so grateful to be alive," Somers told Access.

She also said that many of her celebrity friends have reached out to her to help.

"People have been so unbelievably kind and thoughtful … everybody from Barry Manilow, who took me to Madison Square Garden this week and people call, like Rosie O' Donnell and Ellen DeGeneres. And Jackie Collins sent me a necklace because all of my jewelry burned up, that is why I am not in any diamonds. I don't have anything left, but it was the gesture, it is just so beautiful," Somers added. "That's what made me cry."

Somers has also received a helping hand from more than just her famous friends.

"There was a guy at a Mexican restaurant who wouldn't let me pay for my soup," she said. "I started crying and he goes, 'It was just soup.'"
