Default Joyce DeWitt ("Three's Company") Arrested for Drunk Driving

Oh no! Not yet another celebrity in hot water!

See: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090707/...e_joyce_dewitt

And she played "the smart one" on that show!

Bonus Trek connection (allegation): "DeWitt dated actor LeVar Burton, but her parents did not approve of the interracial romance, and it ended after six months."

I have also droven drunk once (for the first and last time), but it seems as if people expect celebrities to have some higher moral standards or whatsoever.
There are so many far better role models in the world, religious figures, philantropists, artists, scientists, ordinary people who care about their fellow humans ... so why do people have to pick celebrities.

There is much truth in your statement...

But so little fun!

OMG! Just kidding. She looks horrible in that mugshot. Yeah, i thought she was the smart good one. She was also cute and sexy in a geeky sort of way on Three's Co. What Hollywood actors won't do for publicity! She can play the new Mrs. Roper in the reboot!

Hopefully they'll get her some help, and hopefully, she'll let herself BE helped, and learn from this mistake. Good luck Joyce.

yes, she looks horrible in that mugshot; but if you clean her up a bit in your head, then I say she looks pretty dam good for 60 years old!

Does acting in a sitcom 30 years ago still qualify a person as a "celebrity"?
