Both of Debbie’s parents immigrated to the United States from Greece and instilled in her 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, Debbie 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 cohost 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 cohost FOX’s GOOD DAY LIVE. She then joined the E! Network family and began cohosting 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 ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT and 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.
