They hook each other up.

Fran Drescher is still best friends with her gay ex-husband. The Nanny star and Peter Marc Jacobson were married for over 20 years, then after their divorce he decided to come out of the closet... and the two have never been better.

In an interview with In Touch Weekly, Drescher reveals that Jacobson, whom she met in high school in Queens, New York, and married just before her 21st birthday, is gay.

And the two are still extremely close.

"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."

Married in 1978, the couple worked together on the set of Drescher's breakout sitcom The Nanny. The couple split in 1999 after 21 years of marriage, and Jacobson reportedly came out to Fran shortly after.

Now, the pair are "the best of friends" and continue to be there for each other no matter what.

"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."

Plus, they even get to set each other up with other men now!

"We have even fixed each other up!" Fran says. "I more successfully than him, by the way."
