Fran drescher dating
There she met and began dating classmate Peter Marc Jacobson.
She took home second place, but viewed the competition as a calling card; Drescher told local talent agents she'd won the pageant, and used the fibbed victory to pitch herself as a potential client.
The actress kept the same names for her "on-air" parents (Mort and Silvia), as well as her character's Queens upbringing.
For her portrayal of a jubilant standout in a buttoned-up world, she heightened her already outrageous accent and splashy sense of fashion.
The couple sought counseling and looked to close friends (and former co-stars) Dan Aykroyd and Donna Dixon for support.
The relentlessly positive Drescher soon returned to her acting career and entrepreneurial ventures.
