If there are any veteran female stars who have managed to maintain a lasting impression in people's hearts, Debrah Farentino ranks at the top of the list. Her transition from a model to one of the highly admired and loved actress is surely an example to many up and coming actors. Remembered for playing in hit series' like Capitol, Hooperman, Equal Justice, Get Real, Eureka, she has worked in a couple of movies too.
Debrah Farentino's Personal Life
The American actor, Debrah Farentino is likely single currently as she seems to be neither dating nor married to anyone. It has also been a while since she last appeared on-screen, so her current activities are a mystery to many.
Off the screen as well, Debrah lives a closed up life, and due to her minimum social media presence, there is relatively little information about her.
From her Instagram, we found out that she is currently residing in her farmyard in Easton, Connecticut. On top of her Instagram account, she has written "Filming and Farming." Let's hope she is doing well!
Though the actress might be single right now, it is not that the "Eureka" star was never in any serious relationship, she was, in fact, a married woman, and not just once or twice but four times.
Four Times Married and Divorced
Debrah's first marriage was with Scott Staples and the two became man and wife on June 09, 1979. They could only stay as married couples for about four years as they officially split in 1983.
On June 15, 1985, two years after that, she tied the knot with the actor James Farentino who was more than twenty years older than her. They say when you truly love someone, age does not matter, but, in this case, it could not be so. Her second marriage could not even last longer than the first, and they separated three years after tying the knot in 1988.
Farentino's search for the right partner continued, and she walked down the aisle with her boyfriend, Tony Adams, on June 16, 1990. From her marriage with the Irish filmmaker, she gave birth to a daughter Molly Adams on June 16, 1991. However, only three years after their child's birth, their relationship ended in divorce in 1994.
The exact reasons for Tony and Debrah's separation are not disclosed, but it is believed that her extra marital affairs with Director Gregory Hoblit to be the main factor. Moreover, less than three months after officially parting ways with Adams, she exchanged wedding vows with the Hoblit on September 10, 1994.
Less than a year later, the former model gave birth to her second child, Sophie Hoblit, in 1995. Sophie walked on the footsteps of her mother and is now an actress.
Strangely enough, Debrah's fourth marriage lasted longer than her previous ones. Just when people thought that the duo was getting along well, unfortunately, it seems they were also not meant to be, and after 14 years living as partners, they called it a day. The celebrity duo separated on January 04, 2009.
In a sense, the "Eureka" star has had a bizarre love life, and no matter how successful she has been in her career, a lasting marriage does not seem to be her forte. That is why she might preferably plan to remain single from now on.
