There have been many woman on The View over the years, with different stars regularly coming and going. One star, who first appeared on The View back in 1997, is Debbie Matenopoulos, who was just a sweet and innocent 22-year-old at the time. Debbie was regularly criticised for her views and she has now opened about her time on the show.
Matenopoulos explained, "It has been 16 years since I was on 'The View,' -- 15 or 16 but who's counting. That was the most amazing experience of my life to date and still the most amazing job. At that time I probably didn't realize what a big deal it was because I was so young."
She added, "Did I say and do some crazy things? Yeah, I look back at that girl and I say, 'You poor thing.' I mean that poor, poor thing. It was difficult to read stuff about myself that's for sure, in the press, and to hear things about myself and -- oh my gosh, the press could be brutal. Brutal."
Debbie Matenopoulos is can now be found over in Greece, where she is currently working on her brand new cook book, which is titled It's All Greek To Me and brings us some of her favourite family recipes.
