Fran Drescher Describes Getting Relationship Advice From Her Gay Ex-Husband (VIDEO)

Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson on 'Access Hollywood Live'When Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson divorced in 1999, it was because Jacobson realized he was gay. Now Drescher depends on her ex-husband for relationship advice, as she explained Wednesday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC). She based her new sitcom, 'Happily Divorced,' on their relationship, and there are times when she really needs his help.

It took a while for Drescher and Jacobson to get comfortable enough to start talking about their new personal lives with each other. But once they did, they became closer than ever. "I was in a relationship for a while that was, you know, very volatile and complicated, and that kind of dimensionalized our relationship on a new level," she said. Drescher could hardly find someone who knows her better to ask for advice.

Drescher's gaydar still hasn't improved much, though. "She went to a bar and she liked this guy," said Jacobson, "and she was, like, flirting with him, and the girl said, you know, 'Stop, he's gay.' She said, 'Oh, okay, well, I have an ex-husband for you...'"

I would turn gay too if I was married to Drescher. Is there a more annoying women than her?
