On her hit TV Land show 'Happily Divorced' (Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m.), Fran Drescher plays Fran Lovett, a Los Angeles florist whose husband of 18 years comes out as a gay man. Drescher didn't need to do much research for her role - she lived it.

Drescher's real-life former husband, writer and producer Peter Marc Jacobson, came out in the 1990s while the pair were in the midst of producing new episodes of 'The Nanny' for CBS. After the couple divorced in 1999, they remained close and eventually decided that their story made a promising premise for a new series.

Checking in with Hotel Transylvania'

Animated film has thin plot, but plenty of laughs

As a rule, I don't tend to have particularly high expectations going into a kids' movie (Pixar being the exception, of course). So when I started seeing trailers for the new movie 'Hotel Transylvania,' I was on the fence as to whether I would even bother. I mean, Adam Sandler stars how good could it be?

But then I received a vital piece of information. Game-changing information. You see, it turns out that 'Hotel Transylvania' is the feature film directorial debut of Genndy Tartakovsky, the man behind the subversive brilliance of an assortment of wonderful animated series. This is the guy who unleashed 'The Powerpuff Girls,' 'Dexter's Laboratory' and 'Samurai Jack' on the world.
