​The Nanny's Fran Drescher opens up about her friend with benefits: “It keeps me going”

Fran Drescher has opened up about being single and happy, and a main contributor to this is a sex partner that keeps her company whenever she needs.

Former The Nanny star told Page Six at a NBC Universal Press Junket that she is currently “dating herself and it’s going quite well.”

“I have my gay ex-husband who I love and he fulfils a lot of needs. I have someone on the side who is a friend with benefits.”

Drescher admitted that due to her extremely tight travel schedule, she sees her casual sex partner about twice a month and said it’s “more than enough”.

“It’s delightful and delicious but I’ve got a big life,” she revealed.

“(We’re) very comfortable with each other and we have our routine.

“It’s always the same experience. We really don’t go out, we don’t go to restaurants, we don’t date. What we do, we do great.”

The actress also said when her and her partner are united, she pulls out all the stops.

“He comes over, we hang out and we do the hot tub and I make us some food and we lay in bed and maybe we’ll watch tennis together, whatever it is or a movie,” she said.

“We talk, we have good conversations.”

She added with a giggle: “Of course we have sex, and it’s delightful and it keeps me going.”

Drescher chose to keep the identity of the lucky man to herself.

The actress was also married to Dr Shiva Ayyadurai from 2014 to 2016.
