Guest Bio: Debbie Matenopoulos, author
Both of Debbie Matenopoulos's parents immigrated to the United States from Greece and instilled in Debbie the concept of philoxenia, a passion for bringing friends, family, and even strangers together over the dinner table for meals made with love.

A two-time Emmy nominee, Matenopoulos has sustained her career as a compelling journalist and talk show host for more than a decade. After starting out on The View as the youngest person in daytime history to hold a permanent co-host position on network television, she went on to launch the TV Guide Channel, host the TBS hit series He's a Lady, write and sell a movie to Oxygen Network, and co-host FOX's Good Day Live. She then joined the E! Network family and began co-hosting red carpet events, The Daily 10, and also hosted Fashion Police and Style Network's Instant Beauty Pageant. After E!, Debbie joined CBS Television's ET/THE INSIDER, where she covered everything from pop culture trends to the latest hard-hitting news.

Debbie is currently a cast member on Hallmark's Home & Family.
