Q: I'd like some information on Ellen DeGeneres of "Ellen." And please tell me where I can write her.

--W.D.A: DeGeneres, a native of New Orleans, began her comedy career in 1982, when she-- very prematurely, she insists-- was named "Funniest Person in America" on a cable TV competition. That launched her career, and she hasn't stopped working since.

She has appeared on many comedy specials, and was cast in the series "Open House" on Fox, and "Laurie Hill" on ABC. She is currently writing her first book, which is scheduled for publication in October of next year.

Write to her in care of ABC, 2040 Avenue of the Stars, Century City, Calif. 90067.

Q: What happened to Ray Combs, who was hosting "The New Family Feud?" I have noticed a lot of reruns, then this new "Family Feud" with the old Richard Dawson showed up. I liked it better with Ray.


A: Last July, Combs, 38, was driving on a highway north of Los Angeles when his car was sideswiped. Combs' spinal cord was bruised, and he was temporarily paralyzed. In early October, back home in Cincinnati, Combs began walking again, and further recovery is expected.

Q: Please settle an argument. I say that Regis and Kathie Lee are married to each other. My mother says that Kathie Lee is married to a baseball player, and Regis is married to Connie Chung. Who is right? --C.H.

A: Nobody! Regis Philbin's wife is named Doris. Connie Chung is married to talk show host Maury Povich. And Kathie Lee is married to long-retired football player Frank Gifford.

Q: Could you give me an address for the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers?"

A: Write in care of Fox, Box 900, Los Angeles, Calif. 90213.
