Meneses is best known to Americans as Stefania the gelato girl from Everybody Loves Raymond, but when she filmed her latest comedy, Funny Money, in Romania, she discovered she had a large fan base in that country.
She laughs: Apparently, Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman which I was on for one season is still big there, so I was recognized everywhere.
Pretty heady stuff, considering her co-star in the movie was Chevy Chase.
Although Meneses enjoyed her brief stint as a Romanian superstar, she says the best part about filming the movie was working with actor Christopher McDonald, who plays her husband in the comedy.
As she puts it, Were both from poor Catholic families, so I can smack him and its okay.
Funny Money hits DVD stores today (Mar. 27).
