Debbie Matenopoulos’ Shoe Scandal!!

A big tsk, tsk to former View co-host and forever airhead, Debbie Matenopoulos. The E! correspondent caused a bit of a scandal at last night’s Knocked Up premiere after shrugging off an alleged queer’s queries about her tacky shoes (pictured).

Via Open All Night:

Barbara Walters and company may want to consider bringing back long-ago The View co-host Debbie Matenopoulos to stir up controversy once outspoken Rosie O’Donnell leaves the show. When a man inquired if the stones inlaid in Matenopoulos’ shoes were tiger eyes, she looked at him and said, “Are you gay?”, and walked away. The shocked gentleman told us that he is simply a gemstone enthusiast, and felt offended by the rude remark.

That’s what you get when you talk to dumb twats E! correspondents.

    Forget the stone – who can get past those ugly toes and toe nails!!!!!

    I think she has really cute feet.

    I say we put her feet to the fire and insist that E! explain what she meant by that remark. Was she curious about the man’s sexuality? Was it meant as an insult?

    This is what you get when you spend almost all your budget on “The Simple Life” and Ryan Peecrust…you don’t have enough left over to hire decent on-air talent.

    everyone needs to relax. Debbie happens to be a very VERY good friend of mine and she is a big friend to the gays. I was at her house for thanksgiving 3 years ago and it was like 10 gays and 3 straights, she is the best – let her be.

    Hey Brendan. How are you ? Are you in town? Debbie Matenopoulos here, by the way Queerty readers. What Brendan says is SO true. I have more gay friends than I do straight. I was COMPLIMENTING the man. I apologize if he took it the wrong way. I noticed he was handsome and charming, so my stare sort of lingered on him. I told him I was impressed that he knew what tiger eyes were. Then I said, “You’re good looking and smart? Are you gay?” For those of you who know me, I was obviously paying the man a compliment.
