In GET IT HUNTY kinda news, Fran Drescher aka The Nanny, is apparently cougar-cuddling up on a younger guy who just-so-happened to invent that thing you check 20 times a day. Yes, that thing you check while at dinner with your friends, that makes you rudely drift off mid-conversation: Email! Via US Weekly:
The Happily Divorced actress stepped out with her new boyfriend, Shiva Ayyadurai, at the premiere of Bridegroom at the Academy Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Tuesday, Oct. 15.
Drescher, 59, and Ayyadurai, 49, were “very affectionate,” an insider revealed to Us Weekly. At one point, the former Nanny star grabbed his hand and pulled him in close. “He [gave] her a kiss,” the eyewitness added. “They [were] all smiles and [seemed] very into each other and very much in love.”
Ayyadurai developed a full-scale emulation of a mail system he called “EMAIL” as a high school student in 1978 and copyrighted it in 1982.
Drescher revealed that she loves to cook with the Indian-American scientist and they are currently throwing around ideas for a couple-themed Halloween costume. “I don’t think we’ve decided yet but we know what we’re doing. We’ve got some really good parties to go to and Iron & Wine, which is one of my favorite bands, is playing down at the Orpheum so we’re gonna be doing all that,” the Queens native added. “I can’t do anything but sexy so we gotta work along those lines.”
Drescher was married to her high school sweetheart Peter Marc Jacobson for 21 years until their divorce in 1999. In 2010, the exes confirmed that Jacobson is now an openly gay man, and the two continue to be the best of friends.
It’s kind of crazy to think that if Fran‘s new boo didn’t exist, that we would never have been blessed with Britney‘s “Email My Heart”! Think about how different the world would be today!!
