copeland, and singer bria valenti. no other singer could ever capture his sensuality and heat. it's easy to see why the ladies were caught in his spell. >> we have never seen a star like that with the sexuality. when he first came out, who is this dude? >> he is all man. but he is very in touch with his feminine side. and that was sexy. that was sexy. i mean, he -- he was like yeah, i'm wearing eye liner. i have eye liner on. but i'm a man. and i'm going to go kill it. >> such an unbelievable loss. and sadly, not the only one to talk about. i thought i heard someone who sounded like uncle gus. >> uncle gus died eight years ago. how did he look? >> the world will always remember doris roberts as ray romano's tv mom. she won four emmys in the role and helped make the show a number one hit for years. ray romano said, quote, doris roberts had an energy and a spirit that amazed me. she did everything with such a grand love for life and people.
and i will miss her dearly. this was the last time we saw doris nearly two weeks ago. she was going see a movie. "e.t.'s" time with doris goes back decades long before raymond. nancy o'dell joined the cast just two years ago future a special reunion and saw firsthand the bond they all shared. >> well, i think we're all smitten with each other. and we believed that we were the best there was. we were. >> they were a real family. when we brought them back together, they couldn't stop chatting and gossiping with each other. doris was the matriarch. >> i do live in the now. >> doris was 55-year-old when we first met her. it was 1981, the first year "e.t." went on the air. she was long established broadway vet who was starring in an a now forgotten sitcom called maggie. >> if you worry about tomorrow, you don't know what is going to happen. you really don't know what the hell is going to happen. so it just fills you full of fear. and if you worry about what you
didn't do yesterday, you're full of regret. >> but it was in 1996 when we first embraced her into our family. we visited the set of "everybody loves raymond" in its first season. audiences were just starting to get to know know it all marie. >> i think mother-in-laws, they mean well. they do. it's not a vicious woman, you know what i'm saying? it's a woman who has nothing else to do so she busts into her son's life. >> don't let them touch you! >> doris is survived by her son michael kannana and three grandchildren. >> they're the joy of my life. they're right behind you this. is devon. this is kelsey and this is andy. and they're fabulous. >> my mother marie, doris roberts. doris roberts. >> when i go, if there is a tombstone, it will say she doesn't give in. she doesn't give up. and she never takes no for an answer. >> spoke to ray romano at a comedy fast one day after the
raymond cast got together to celebrate doris. >> she meant so much to all of us. people sometimes say hey, she is known for my show. they seem like i made her when in reality she made me. i was a nobody. >> another update, the show's madeline sweeten and mom elizabeth were with us for another loss, sawyer sweeten, jeffrey on the series who was madeline's real life brother and twin of sullivan who was also on the show. sawyer committed suicide after suffering from mental illness. >> sullivan has said since sawyer passed that when he looks in the mirror and he sees sawyer now. because they look exactly the same. and that's really touching, i think. >> we shared with them our "e.t." footage of happier times on the set. but it really struck elizabeth. >> just the timing of it to be here around the time. it's been hard the last few day, elizabeth launched a website honoring her son and raising awareness. >> his life kind of lived on and
creates a legacy for him that is super important to me. there is a lot of information on it regarding suicide. and there is numbers and hot lines. >> it's a somber time for madeline, but she is comforted by fond memories of her tv grandmother. >> she was the sassy grandma. just as funny offstage as she was on. and always had really wise words. >> she will be missed.
no question about that. now doris spent one of her last nights at a friend's house. they had dinner. they laughed, and she sang "moon river" with her. >> we'll be right back.
