And I think I have a perspective about Hollywood that you don`t see very often in the press.
  • Edited the news film at NBC station Channel 5 in Cleveland, when she was in college during the summers in the 1970s.
  • Tony Shalhoub was the best man at Patty`s wedding to David Hunt. Tony knew David before Patty came into the picture.
  • In a 2006 TV Guide/Bravo poll, she was named the TV personality who would make the best real-life housewife with 72% of the vote, far surpassing runner-up Teri Hatcher from "Desperate Housewives" (2004).
  • On the old "Everybody Loves Raymond" (1996) television site, Heaton listed Gary Oldman as her favorite actor.
  • According to Ray Romano, Patricia won the role of Debra on "Everybody Loves Raymond" (1996) because she was the only actress willing to kiss him at the auditions. It actually came down to a draw between her and Jane Sibbett - CBS liked Sibbett, but Romano preferred Patricia, who was much closer to how he pictured Debra, and the producers backed him up.
