His pics are in her book "Enter Whining" - he's a QT!!

Good for them for loving each other as people, regardless of gender, and good for them to realize that yes, sooner or later gender IS an issue and that everyone deserves a good and truthful sex life.

Their "weird lives" happen to be truthful ones that many people have had to suffer through, due to a culture that won't accept reality without a mind-shift. If done right, a TV series based upon their experiences would not only be timely, given the recent high profile marriage fiascos in the States, but fun as well!

Would you consider the premise of REBA, or THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE, or IT'S COMPLICATED in which baby boomers growing out of their marriage ideals learn to accept reality, to be not relevant in the current age?

Ok , whatever , the idea of her using her ex-husbands lifestyle to try to jump start her own career is "weird". You want to watch another poorly written farce , featuring a woman who couldn`t act dead three days after her own funeral go ahead , it`s a free country , I`m just saying I`ll pass.

Why don't you go away? Homophobic small minded people have no place in society. You are probably gay yourself.

THEY are pitching the show. He has a financial stake in it,
just as he did with The Nanny.

Pass on the show if you'd like. No one's forcing you to watch.

I don`t have to go away, this is America where everyone is allowed to have an opinion , mine is , I don`t care for her . I don`t care if he`s gay I never said anything bad about him being gay , go back and reread the post . No I`m not gay , but I can accept someone with a different point of view , just not another terrible tv show . Why not try getting tour facts straight before you go after somebody. Wow!

Married for 21 years myself. Have met several other gay men who were married for 20 or so years.
Wonder why so many gay stay married for 20 years.

My ex-wife and I get along fine.

Any sit-com based upon a 20 year marriage of a woman to a gay man would be hard to write.
Looking forward to seeing how they do.

Hey, isn't this the kind of marriage that the fundies WANT us to have? The kind where we conceal who we are and lead an unsuspecting spouse into an incompatible relationship? Fran Drescher could be their poster child for the practice of gay people suppressing who they are in order to propagate a doomed marriage! I'm glad she was able to turn it into an amicable friendship, instead of the messy tragedy that many such marriages disintegrate into.

"This explains a lot" was going to be my comic relief, but then I read the insane and bigoted writings of the fundies above and I just want to tell those liars to go to h*ll.

She's a FUNNY actress. And I read they made her story into a new play that's coming to Broadway, "Under My Skin". I hope Hugh Jackman gets to play her husband!:)

I read about that too. I don't think she's in it though. But Charles Shaughnessy (Mr. Sheffield) apparently did a pre-Broadway reading of the play. So maybe he plays her husband. That'd be weird. Still, I'd rather see her on Broadway than him.

The play "Under My Skin" is written by writers from "The Nanny". I did read that Charles Shaughnessy is in it. The two of them, on Broadway, in a play by writers from "The Nanny"? Sounds horrible. I don't want to see any of those people go to Broadway.

Actaully, Fran was the gay one in that marriage. It broke up because she cheated on her long-suffering heterosexual husband with Rosie O'Donnell. Drescher is a carpet-munching slut.

I dislike The Nanny, but I love Fran Drescher. I hope she and her ex-husband marry men that love them and are sexually attracted to them.

Fran is such an inspiration to me. She's been though so much in her life yet she still has an amazing smile on her face. Don't judge her without knowing about her.
