Jacobson wrote, “THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT WITH HAPPILY DIVORCED. UNFORTUNATELY TVLAND HAS DECIDED NOT TO PICK US UP. BUT THANK YOU GUYS FOR UR LOVE N SUPPORT!”

Based on the real-life marriage of Fran Drescher and Jacobson, Happily Divorced follows a Los Angeles florist (Drescher) whose husband comes out of the closet after 18-years of marriage. Unable to sell their house, she and her gay ex-husband (John Michael Higgins) continue to live together. Still friends and now “happily divorced,” they both re-enter the dating world.

    OKAY WE GET IT !!!!
    First it was the show about her real life experience with a younger man.
    Now it the show about her real life marriage to a gay man .
    As much as I like FD I wish she would go back to a oringinal scripts
    Also I wish she should find a sitcom that didnt include her parents

    I was a huge fan of the show, I wish that FD could fine a show that would be a huge hit for her. Living with Fran and this where both great shows. I wish they could have found a audience. She is a great actress. I will miss this show and FD.
