Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Debbie: My favorite show, hands down, is Sex and the City. I can't think of one show that sums up single life and Manhattan more than that show. That's my girlfriends and I.

    • Debbie: I've got to say, if it wasn't for my critics, I probably would be on a beach somewhere serving drinks in Greece.

    • Stepping Out Magazine Article

      Chaunce Hayden: Did Playboy ever offer you money to pose nude?

      Debbie: Oh, God! Yes, about three times. It got the point where my agent called and said, "Debbie, it's Playboy again. What do you want to do?" And I told him, " I don't even want to know how much, because I might say yes." I started to think, "Why should I be ashamed of what God gave me?"

      Chaunce Hayden: What stopped you?

      Debbie: My father. I know that sounds like I'm such a little girl, but I couldn't do it. I don't have a problem with nudity at all. I mean, I grew up in Greece, where there's nude beaches everywhere. But the thought of my father and mother having to face their friends made me sick to my stomach.

    • Debbie: Star was very demanding. When I said she was a diva I meant she felt she needed to be treated like a superstar.

    • Debbie: When people ask me about the "View" it doesn't annoy me because it was a great amount of my life and I don't want to deny it or forget about it. That experience made me who I am today.

  • Great TV host

    Debbie Matenopoulos, in my opinion, is one of the funniest TV personalities in Hollywood. Her quirky personality on the View and TV guide Channel may have annoyed some people, but has always been a fan favorite. Good Day Live was probably on of her best projects.The whole viewing audience loved her and its a shame the show was cancelled. I hope to see her in the near future with hopefully, her own talk show.moreless
  • Very funny

    I loved watching her on TV Guide Channel in 2003 with Ken Taylor. She was always funny. She was also good on The View, even though the other over 40 hosts didnt think so. My favorite project of her was Good Day Live. She was loved by the hosts and by millions of viewers. I certainly hope to see her more in the near future.
