Fran Drescher Tells 'The View' Ladies the True Story Behind 'Happily Divorced' (VIDEO)

It's your typical American love story: boy meets girl, boy and girl get married, boy helps girl with wardrobe, boy says he's bisexual, boy and girl get divorced, boy says he is gay, boy helps girls with wardrobe and new boyfriend.
That's the story Fran Drescher told Tuesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) 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."
