‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Cast Reunites to Remember the Late Doris Roberts
Doris Roberts was loved by everybody.
Ray Romano reunited with his Everybody Loves Raymond cast to pay tribute to their late co-star and TV mom. The actor opened up about the emotional reunion to Entertainment Tonight while attending the Keep It Clean Comedy Benefit in Hollywood, Calif. on Thursday (Apr. 21, 2016).
“I hadn’t seen these people in a while. It was sad to see them on that kind of an occasion, but she meant so much to all of us,” he said. The show’s creator, Phil Rosenthal, tweeted a picture of the cast and crew who attended. “Last night some old friends got together to raise a glass, and a plate of pasta, to #DorisRoberts. Lots of love,” he wrote.
