'Happily Divorced': Fran Discovers Unpleasant Secret About Old Boyfriend (VIDEO)

'Happily Divorced' - 'Spousal Support'It all seemed so perfect when Fran reconnected with an old high school sweetheart, Richard, on 'Happily Divorced' (Wed., 10:30PM ET on TV Land). He not only understood why she was still living with her ex-husband Peter, he helped hook Peter up with a job. More importantly, he was rich. What could go wrong?

It happened when one of Judi's best friends turned out to be his son, and Richard bolted out of there like his shoes were on fire. Turns out he's okay with "those people" if it's Peter or anyone but his son.

"Love isn't conditional," Fran said. "Love is love." Sure the message was a little heavy-handed, but we're in traditional sitcom mode. If this were the '90s, it would have been billed as a "very special episode" of 'Happily Divorced.'

So Fran reluctantly broke it off, giving up the boats, the cars, the money and everything else his wealth could have offered her. Some things are more important than material things. We will give the show credit by not going the totally old-school sitcom route of having Fran force him to reconcile with his son. It just kind of ended as it was.

At least she still has Peter. Oh, wait ...
