Former 'View' Host Debbie Matenopoulos -- I LOVE the New Panel... With ONE Exception

EXCLUSIVE

Original "View" co-host Debbie Matenopoulos doesn't need an umbrella, because she has plenty of shade ... which she happily threw at one of the show's new panelists.

A very pregnant Matenopoulos was hanging out at Craig's in West Hollywood and had glowing reviews for 3 members of the new foursome -- Rosie PerezNicole Wallace ... along with Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell. Debbie laid out her issues with one of them. 

Debbie -- who's now repped by Wendy Feldman -- doesn't have hard feelings though about getting canned in '99, and replaced by Lisa Ling. Last night she told our photog she'd be down for a return, and she's even cooked up a ploy to score ratings.
