Let's be honest, anyone can be pretty. But to be truly beautiful, you must be able to hit the unspoken Trifecta. That would be undeniable beauty, endless brains of deep and conversational knowledge and to have an amazing sense of humor. My latest GS&E subject of beauty is all three and more..the fabulous PATRICIA HEATON. After studying drama and graduating from Ohio State, Patricia made her Broadway debut in the chorus of "Don't Get God Started" in 1987, which came about after she and fellow students formed Stage Three, an Off-Broadway acting troupe. When Stage Three took a production to Los Angeles, Heaton caught the eye of a casting director for the TV show "Thirtysomething." The rest is sparkling gold television history. Gone were the days of this powerhouse cast in the chorus. She went on to win a leading role on "Everybody Loves Raymond" which became and remains one of the most beloved and classic television shows of all time. Her comedic genius and timing won her two Best Actress Emmy Awards for her amazing work as Raymond's wife "Debra Barone." Patricia went on to do several TV movies and became a commercial spokesperson for many amazing brands. She also produced the 2005 documentary film "The Bituminous Coal Queens of Pennsylvania" that her husband, David Hunt, directed. She wrote an insanely hysterical and honest memoir in 2002 called "Motherhood To Hollywood: How To Get A Job Like Mine" which was a hugely acclaimed hit.
Patricia is a wife and mother and still finds the time and energy to be a primetime television princess. Currently on the hysterical and successful ABC sitcom, "The Middle," there is nothing she can't do.
