Profile

"We come across as a sweet, loving couple, but we're not!" Debra, 49, has two grown kids from a previous marriage. They've been married 8½ years, after meeting on a coed softball team Debra "started in order to meet single men." She holds a BA from Northeastern University, an MA from the University of Oklahoma, and is currently director of an artist's colony. Debra considers herself "bawdy, outgoing and driven," and enjoys walking, painting and traveling. She's afraid of "heights and dark waters," and sometimes has trouble with her husband/teammate's devotion to his work: she gets jealous. Debra blows off steam by cleaning the house, and admits that she can be a "controlling and dominating know-it-all." She speaks no foreign languages, but has traveled to France, Mexico and Canada. She refuses to eat fish, according to Steve. She's outgoing and pushes boundaries, while Steve is more cautious and reserved, and "always follows the rules." Says Debra, "I raised money for opera in Oklahoma. I think I can do anything."

"We can be sneaky, snide and devious," says Steve, 40, a radio news director. He jokingly claims that he met Debra through "The Great Softball Conspiracy" perpetrated by his wife, but considers their wedding the most exciting moment of his life. His wife/teammate reminds him of Bonnie Hunt. Steve holds a BA from the University of Scranton. He describes himself as "fun, smart and deceptive," but regrets that "sometimes I let opportunities slip through my hands." Steve speaks no foreign languages and has traveled to Canada, Mexico, France, Germany and Belgium. He counts "people skills" among his finer traits.
