The Nanny star Fran Drescher has long been asked questions about life with her gay ex-husband, and she certainly cleared up one big question when she was being honoured for her advocacy in the gay community at the Stonewall Community Foundation Vision Awards.
Accepting the award she said, “I have a gay art dealer, a gay dermatologist — not to mention my hairdresser,” she began.
“I have a gay ex-husband! People always say to me [of her ex], ‘How did you not know?’ He loves decorating and fashion and clothes, but we actually did have sex a lot. I didn’t know at the time, though, that in his mind he was f**king the bartender at Olive Garden.”
Fran was married to Peter Marc Jacobson for 21 years and he ‘came out’ after they split. They are now best friends.
