8. “Money Honey”
In the late 1990’s, Maria was nicknamed, “Money Honey.” There were two reasons for this nickname. First, Maria is a very beautiful woman, which gave her the ‘honey’ part of the nickname. She got the money part of the nickname because she was the first woman to ever report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Not long after, she also earned the nickname, “Econo Babe” for the same reasons as Money Honey.
