Debbie Matenopoulos

Watch TV personality Debbie Matenopoulos describing how she almost got arrested in Greece, while shooting in Acropolis for her book “It’s All Greek to Me: Transform Your Health the Mediterranean Way with My Family’s Century-Old Recipes”

During a Los Angeles signing for her book, Debbie shared the story of how she and her crew pretended to be “stupid Americans” in order to save their work from being confiscated by Greek guards.

Watch the video filmed by Philip Georgious:


  1. I see the myth of the “stupid American” is alive and ruining it for all Greek-Americans. Her story tries to gloss over one glaring fact: she DIDN’T HAVE a bloody PERMIT !!! Thank God she used words like “shit” in her book signing at Barnes & Noble to help us understand that she is an intellectual.
