Besides a singer and star on the 1960′s Batman TV series, Kitt was also a dancer, Broadway and cabaret star. She also did voice-over for Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove and its TV version, The Emperor’s New School.
Kitt was born as Eartha Mae Keith on a cotton plantation in “North”, a town in South Carolina. Kitt’s mother was of Cherokee and African-American descent, though it’s unconfirmed. Kitt didn’t live with her mother at first, although she thought Anna Mae Riley was her mother until about age 8. When Riley passed away, Kitt went to live with her biological mother, Mamie Kitt in New York City.
Kitt never knew her father. It has been reported that he was of German descent and either a local doctor named Daniel Sturkie or a son of the owner of the cotton farm where she had been born.

Ricci has played in many movies since the Addams Family.
Ricci identifies as mostly Scotch-Irish, but also with Italian heritage 5 or 6 generations back. Scotch-Irish is an Americanism. Most Scotch-Irish have little or no Scottish ancestry. The term Scotch-Irish came into use because the area where these immigrants arrived from, Northeastern Ireland, had a Scottish cultural influence.
