Fran Drescher Talks About Gay Ex-Husband on 'The View' (Video)
By AOL TV Editors Posted Jun 15th 2011 02:15AM
That's the story Fran Drescher told Tuesday on 'The View' about herself and her ex-husband, Peter Jacobson. And it's also the premise of her new sitcom, 'Happily Divorced.'
Drescher said on 'The View' that she did not know her husband was gay when they were married, she just thought he was metrosexual, which was trendy at the time. In hindsight, the advice on shoes and clothes may have been a tip-off.
When TVLand came to Drescher asking for ideas for a show, she thought her own story was a natural fit. "That's easy," she remembered saying. "That's got to be the relationship between myself, my gay ex-husband and the advice he gives me on my current boyfriend."
On the show, unlike in her real life, Drescher and her husband are forced to live together when they can't sell their house. She is hoping they can't sell it for about seven years, when they would be firmly in syndication.
