Is it true that actor Peter Boyle of Everybody Loves Raymond was married to Madeline Kahn when she passed away recently?

—Jewell H., Indiana

No. The Emmy-award winning actor, who plays Frank Barone on the CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, has been married to Loraine Alterman since 1977, a show spokeswoman says. Boyle and Kahn were both in the Mel Brooks film Young Frankenstein. He actually met his wife, who was then a reporter for Rolling Stone, on the set for that film. Boyle’s most recent movie role is that of the villainous Old Man Wickles in Scooby Doo 2. His film credits include Taxi Driver, Monster’s Ball and The Candidate.
