In 1989, Newsome launched the Debbie Newsome show, produced by Dee Lampe, initially partnering with New Zealand singer Lou Pihama at the North Sydney Leagues Club with Derek Williams as arranger and musical director, before touring New South Wales with Williams and his 8 piece showband. This marked her transition from the screen to the stage, and she now works as a singer, performing a Janis Joplin tribute show. Newsome also appeared in the James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only. On 13 May 2015 UK media reported an unnamed Australian media source in a story that appeared in the Daily Mail and on Mail Online in October 2014, eventually resulting in a damages claim that Roger Moore successfully settled, disputing allegations he groped the 21-year-old Newsome during production. Moore received an apology and his legal costs.
In July 2017, Newsome was interviewed by Craig Bennett on Network Ten in a recap of her Perfect Match Australia days. Her daughter, Tara has appeared on many Reality TV shows like Bachelor in Paridise, The Bachelor and All Star Family Feud
