Fran Drescher steps Behind The Rope. From the moment this chat started, one thing was clear, Fran Drescher is one busy Icon. First things first, The Nanny. Fran chats about the recent addition of The Nanny to HBO Max, the joys of having it discovered by a whole new generation and shares an update on the status of her road to bringing The Nanny to Broadway. After we wax nostalgic on all things The Nanny, we move on to one of Fran’s new passions, Mahjong. Her hobby which started with Monday night sessions with her “boys” - yes the many gay men in her life, including ex husband Peter Jacobson, and friends like Rosie O”Donnell has led her to this weeks Mahjong Tournament where you, our dear listener, can sign up and win prices, some, of course, involving our fav Legend of today, Ms. Fran Drescher. The tournament also will raise money for Fran’s Cancer Schmancer Organization, a cause near and dear to her heart having survived cancer herself. Fran also chats about her recent appointment as SAG-AFTRA President, the support she received in her candidacy from famous friends like Tom Hanks. Speaking or famous friends, we also chat with Fran about dinners, hang outs, and concerts with friend Madonna. Finally, Fran shares info on other upcoming film and TV projects from the woman who just refuses to slow down. Now can we please have a Fran Fine laugh. Thanks and thank you! #legend #icon #nowords
