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.
