A Better Side of Joyce DeWitt

Recently, Joyce DeWitt (of tv's Three's Company) made the front pages for suspicion of DUI. The news outlets seemed more interested in her less-than-flattering booking photo.
The incident occurred at roughly 4:30 a.m. I can tell you for certain that at 4:30 in the morning, whether I am under the influence or not, my mug shot wouldn't have much eye appeal either.
I do not condone DUI (although, seriously we all have driven when we shouldn't have), but it seems the news blurbs were more fascinated with her picture, than with her offense.
I don't know DeWitt, although I just met her recently at the Motor City Comic Con. She was one of the friendliest celebrities I have ever met. While my photog fumbled with the camera, she stood patiently and even started some random small talk with me.
I do feel a bit of sympathy for DeWitt about this. When/if she ever releases any statement about the incident, will she have to apologize for the mug shot as well as the alleged DUI?

It's always nice to see that the celebrities you think would be nice actually are.

She looks like she's had work done; she looks more like Marlo Thomas than Janet.

WSC-Yeah, she was very nice. There is a difference between celebs being polite and being nice. She was talkative and friendly.
L-She probably had some work done. Most do. I still think if she did, it looks pretty reasonable. She doesn't look like a 60 year old trying to look 20.
