ROMANO'S GAMBLING PAST
Everybody Loves Raymond
star Ray Romano
confesses that he overcame a compulsive gambling past 11 years ago. "In a casino, you gotta give them money up front," he tells Us Weekly
. "But when you make a phone call to a bookmaker, you can say, 'Put a thousand dollars on this' even if you don't have the money on you. The good part was that I didn't have a lot to lose, so it's better that I had the habit then than now."
