Yesterday actress Fran Drescher revealed that her ex-husband is gay. The pair divorced in 1999 after more than 20 years of marriage.
“Peter and I met when we were 15,” Fran tells In Touch. “We were just kids and didn’t know who we truly were. We went through a lot together.” The couple split for good in 1999, and according to an insider, Peter later came out of the closet to Fran. They continue to collaborate and are still “the best of friends. We love each other dearly,” she says. “We have even fixed each other up! I more successfully than him, by the way.” They’re even working together on a new sitcom based on their relationship. “Peter and I feel so blessed to have met each other and to still have a caring, loving relationship,” Fran says. “Love is what we’re all about.”
Drescher has been a vocal ally for LGBT rights for at least a decade. In 2008 she and her ex-husband hosted an anti-Prop 8 party in Los Angeles.
