1[Denying Three's Company (1976) producers' assertion that she wanted her character Janet to be Jack(John Ritter)'s love interest in the spin-off Three's a Crowd (1984), which was canceled after one season] Well, then they should have asked me if I wanted to be one. Perhaps my diplomatic side would have dropped for once, and I would have been frank about what a nightmare the idea of doing another project with them would be. I think they made two big mistakes when they did the spin-off. First and foremost, they utterly underestimated the importance of the affection and intimacy of the relationship of the audience with the other characters. Secondly, they grossly underestimated the relationship between Jack and Janet. She was the burr under his saddle-the voice of his conscience, if you will. Without that element of consistent friction, a lot of comedy is lost. It didn't have to be Janet, and the role didn't have to played by me. Nor can I imagine I would have agreed to work with these producers again. But some version of that relationship needed to be in the new show.
2[2009: on Three's Company (1976) 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.
3[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.
4[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.
5[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.
6[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.
7[on the politics of Hollywood] If that's the way the game is played, I don't want to play anymore.
1Currently lives in California and New Mexico. [August 2003]
2Is slowly starting to get back in show business (2003).
3In 1979, Joyce missed one episode of Three's Company (1976) 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.
4Best remembered by the public for her role as Janet Wood on Three's Company (1976).
5DeWitt, reunited with former Three's Company (1976) 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.
