The show follows a couple that splits up after the husband realizes that he is gay. This situation somewhat mirrors Drescher's own marriage with Jacobson. In an interview with the Huffington Post, she explained that 'On the show, they split because he’s gay. In real life, Peter came out after the divorce; we split because I kind of had a midlife crisis, and I couldn’t find myself within the relationship."
While her show was canceled after its second season in 2013,
Drescher appeared to have found happiness off-screen that fall. She went public with her romance with technology pioneer Shiva Ayyadurai, who is sometimes credited with creating email.
