The Insider went behind the scenes of The View as former co-host Debbie Matenopoulos returned to visit the show that she departed from 13 years ago.
Debbie took our cameras with her as she reunited with the show's staff, including executive producer Bill Geddie, who joked about firing Matenopoulos.
"We were at the beginning of the show and we were trying to find our numbers," Geddie recounted. "We didn't want to get canceled so we thought, 'Get rid of the little Greek girl.'"
Aside from joking, Geddie expressed his love for Debbie, saying that the show's staff loved Debbie back then and still loves her now.
