Actress Fran Drescher told Oprah
Winfrey on Friday that she and ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson had
great sex before he announced he was gay.
Drescher and her husband created and
produced the CBS sitcom The Nanny, which starred Drescher as
Fran Fine, who creates chaos when she lands a job looking after the
children of an upper class Broadway producer in New York.
The pair met in high school and married
in 1978. In 1999, the couple divorced after Jacobson announced he
Drescher told Winfrey that they enjoyed
a healthy sex life.
“He was a very sexual man,”
Drescher said. “I had been with him since I was 15, so I really
didn't have a lot of experience.”
Jacobson said he sought therapy after
he was forced at gunpoint to witness his then-wife and a female
friend be raped in 1985 during a robbery.
“He went into therapy and at that
point he got in touch with feelings that he wanted to talk about,”
Drescher said, referring to his sexuality.
The pair added that they remain friends
and campaign together for gay rights.
