Former “The View” co-host Debbie Matenopoulos dropped quite a bomb — or rather two — on a recent episode of Hallmark’s “Home & Family:” The Virginia native eloped in Greece last year and is now pregnant with her first child!
While promoting her new cookbook, “It’s All Greek to Me: Transform Your Health the Mediterranean Way with My Family’s Century-Old Recipes,” on the Thursday, April 17 episode of the daytime show, Matenopoulos announced the up-until-now-secret wedding and baby news during a cooking segment with host Christina Ferrare. To get the details, watch her surprising “Home & Family” clip after the jump!
Hot on the heels of the news that Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) will be appearing on Hallmark’s “Home & Family” on Tuesday, April 1 comes news that two additional soap stars will be dropping by the talk show this week: “Days of our Lives’” Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) and “All My Children’s” J.R. Martinez (ex-Brot Monroe)!
You might want to buckle up, because it looks as if “The Young and the Restless’” Chelsea Newman won’t soon be getting off this roller coaster she’s been calling life — and her portrayer, Melissa Claire Egan, is spilling some of the dirty details!
The busy actress will be stopping by The Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family” on Tuesday, April 1 to discuss the latest twists and turns in Chelsea’s more-than-complicated life. “Trophy Wife’s” Malin Akerman and The Dancing Scientist, Jeffrey Vinokur, will also appear.

Deidre Hall has been keeping busy as Marlena Evans on the NBC sudser “Days of our Lives,” but the busy actress took a break from the soapy shenanigans yesterday to film a special appearance on Hallmark’s lifestyle series, “Home & Family!”
In the episode, set to air Tuesday, January 28 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM EST/PST on Hallmark Channel, Hall will share secrets to healthy eating and make Red Pepper Soup with “Home and Family” co-host Cristina Ferrare. In addition to the healthy living initiative and how she became a proponent of healthy eating, Hall will also share details on the new “DAYS” oriented book “Days of our Lives Better Living: Cast Secrets for a Healthier, Balanced Life.”
