Joyce DeWitt was raised in Speedway, Indiana. She competed in debates and speeches when at Indiana High School Forensic Association, and then Joyce attended Ball State University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in theater, later completing a Master’s degree in theatre from the University of California, where she also worked as a secretary along with going to auditions.

After an audition for ABC channel Joyce was given a choice between two shows and she had to make the choice within 24 hours; she chose, “Three’s Company” which aired from 1977 until 1984. She was then seen in an episode of “Finder of Lost Loves” in 1984. This was the real start of her rise in net worth, but she quit acting for a few years, and returned to acting on the stage in 1991, but was then cast in “Spring Fling”, a 1995 comedy film.

Joyce DeWitt had cameos and appearances in several other shows like “Pinky and The Brain”, “Cybill”,”Living Single”, “Hope Island”, “18”, “The Nick At Night Holiday Special” and “Call of the world”. Later in 2003 Joyce DeWitt hosted and co-produced “Behind The Camera: The Unauthorized Story Of Three’s Company” in which the character of Dewitt was played by Melanie Paxson. Joyce was also cast in an independent film called “Failing Better Now” in 2008. She also starred in “Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating and Marriage” in 2011, and the indie film “Failing Better,”. Overall, Joyce has been involved in well over 20 TV shows and series, and numerous stage productions which have been the mainstay of her growth in net worth.

Apart from her acting career Joyce DeWitt was also very active in charity events, she participated in the Capital Hill Forum for Hungry and homeless and also hosted International Award Ceremony for the End Hunger Awards at the White House and also hosted the World Food Day Gala. Her net worth is the cumulative result of her acting career and her involvement in the drive to make world a better and safer place for poor and homeless.

In her personal life, Joyce DeWitt has apparently never married, but has had relationships with LeVar Burton and Ray Buktenica. On the down side, Joyce was arrested for alleged DUI in 2009 in El Sugondo, California, and was sentenced to community work and a period of rehabilitation.

#Fact
1 Currently lives in California and New Mexico. [August 2003]
2 Is slowly starting to get back in show business (2003).
3 In 1979, Joyce missed one episode of Three's Company (1977) titled "Stanley's Hotline", when the network tried to take back a raise that was promised, so she called in sick, because she was "sick at heart, sick in the soul". She had a meeting with the network president, who reinstated her raise. When she told her producers she was ready to go back to work, they felt there was not enough preparation time and were already working with a reworked script with guest star Anne Schedeen getting Joyce's lines.
4 Best remembered by the public for her role as Janet Wood on Three's Company (1977).
5 DeWitt, reunited with former Three's Company (1977) co-star Suzanne Somers on her online talk show "Breaking Through". It was the first time, that the former friends spoke to each other, since Somers' termination from the sitcom in 1981 after a salary dispute.
6 (May 25, 2010) Pled no contest to misdemeanor DUI.
7 On July 4, 2009, she was arrested in El Segundo, California for DUI. According to reports, police pulled her over after she drove past a barricade near a park. An officer arrested DeWitt after he became suspicious that she had been drinking and administered a field sobriety test. She was booked at the police station, cited, and released on her own recognizance.
8 Is a member of Chi Omega women's fraternity.
9 Former high school cheerleader.
10 Is one of four children of Paul and Norma DeWitt.
11 Has Irish, Italian and Swedish ancestry.
12 Is a part of the LIFE (Love Is Feeding Everyone) organization where she, and other famous actors, are helping fight world hunger and homelessness.
13 Auditioned as Fonzie's girlfriend on Happy Days (1974) in the late 1970s, although she did not get chosen for the role (explaining she was too short and young), she was cast as Janet Wood on Three's Company (1977) just several weeks later.
14 Very active in theater since the age of 13 and prefers stage work to television.
15 When shooting Three's Company (1977), she always wore either pantyhose or tights, and refused to work bare-legged. Though this caused conflict between her and the show's producers, it endeared her to hosiery manufacturers, and she became the spokeswoman for L'eggs pantyhose in the late 1970s.
16 Received her Master's degree in Acting from the University of California, Los Angeles.
17 Received her Bachelor's degree in Acting from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.
18 After Three's Company (1977) ended, she traveled the world before settling in New Mexico. She is slowly returning to acting. She and Suzanne Somers did not speak to each other for 30 years after Suzanne left the show in 1981. Finally, in February 2012, they reunited after Suzanne invited Joyce to be a guest on her web series "Suzanne Somers: Breaking Through".

#Quote
1 [2009: on Three's Company (1977) and Hollywood] I really felt that Three's Company was a gift. When it ended, I had money in the bank and had the luxury to pursue a life that meant something, to learn and discover. Hollywood can be brutal, inhuman, the opposite of what the theater is and I had little desire to be part of it. But now, I'm excited to work again and to, at my age, be able to keep working.
2 [on Farrah Fawcett] She had a beautiful heart. She was a lovely human being and such a brave woman, right up to her final moments. She chose to share her circumstances, her illness, with the world in order that those who had similar circumstances would be enlightened and inspired, and I have a great deal of respect for the way she left this life.
3 [2009: on rumors that she spent her pre-Hollywood years as a contractor who, after painting the garage of Barney Miller (1974) co-star Abe Vigoda, became a sort of surrogate daughter to the actor] It's totally untrue. I've never even met Abe Vigoda. I never painted his house, his garage or any other thing he has. I often wonder if he thinks I'm this crazy person who made all of this up.
4 [on Suzanne Somers (2009)] I rarely talk about this, but we never actually had an argument. After her fight with the producers, as part of her publicity tour to make herself seem innocent, she made John [Ritter] and I the enemy. Several times over the past 20 years I've left messages, notes, letters, and have given her the phone number for the phone that rings right beside my bed, but she has never chosen to reach me, and, yet, publicly and in the press, she still tells people that I don't speak to her.
5 [on her stardom] Shirley MacLaine once said that she didn't want to be a big star, just a long star. That's what I want too.
6 [on the politics of Hollywood] If that's the way the game is played, I don't want to play anymore.
