American actress Debra Jo Rupp, popular for her role as Kitty Forman in both That ’70s Show and That ’90s Show, hasn’t had a spouse for as long as many can remember, as she has never tied a knot with anyone.

That being said, Rupp has stated that she used to date before she started her acting career.

She said, “The most shocking thing I did in the ’70s was going to Italy with my Italian boyfriend without telling anyone. It’s the same year that Elvis died.”

In That ’70s Show, Debra Jo Rupp had an on-screen spouse played by Kurtwood Smith. Given their excellent on-screen chemistry, both of them always compliment each other at every chance they get, with Kurtwood once saying Rupp is his favorite acting partner.
