Case #9 on the original "Deal Or No Deal" series from 2005–2009 and from the daytime "Deal or No Deal" series from 2008–2010.
I love dancing and am a big foodie, which caused me to launch my blog "Dish with Trish."
I rode a donkey to my wedding ceremony in Mykonos!
I admire my mom the most. She is a very strong woman! She was a single mother with three kids, no family and barely spoke English.
My favorite memory is all the people I worked with on both primetime and the daytime shows. It changed my life personally and professionally! I really love watching the contestants' lives change for the better!
I speak fluent Greek.
It would have to be my maternal grandparents who passed away before I was born. I would love to learn more about my family history and more about my mom's childhood. She is one of 20 children growing up in a small village in Greece. The third person would be my mom in a better state of mind because she is battling dementia.
I'd like to trade places with Howie Mandel for the day. I would host "Deal or No Deal," which means he would have to wear a dress and heels for a day!
It becomes a sisterhood. You become "Lifers" (lifelong friends)! I love all the different personalities coming together and how supportive everyone is of each other.
I consult with entertainers and help manage their careers. Over my 30 years in the entertainment business, I have developed very strong and reliable contacts in all different facets of the industry. I realized over time that there was a significant amount of value I could provide to people through my experience and those relationships. All of my years of doing these things for myself have helped me understand how valuable mentorship and networking guidance can be for people at any level of the entertainment business.
When I moved to New York. It was the most peaceful time in my life. I learned a lot about myself living there. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. I've always felt a strong connection to New York and how it launched my career!
