There are reports that Debbie Matenopoulos may be on tap to fill the slot vacated by Meghan McCain on the ABC TV show The View. Matenopoulos had been on the show for two years when she was in her 20s.
“A spokesperson for the TV host and journalist said Friday in a statement to EW, ‘Debbie will always have a fond place in her heart for The View, the show that launched her career as a 21-year-old straight out of NYU,” according to Entertainment Weekly (EW), which added, “the spokesperson also said Matenopoulos' camp has been in touch with ABC. ‘Her rep has in fact been having conversations with senior executives at ABC News over the past few months about many things, including her participation in celebrating the 25th season of The View, and she appreciates all the interest in her returning.’”
The spokesperson noted that, "currently, she is in development on two food shows and her own lifestyle show, but she'd never say never to returning to her first television home."
Matenopoulos was a View cohost for two seasons with Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Star Jones, and Meredith Vieira.
