Fran Drescher to spend Thanksgiving with her ex-husband

She may be the flashy girl from Flushing, but this year Fran Drescher is keeping the holidays dim out of necessity.

“I’ve thrown some pretty decent bashes in my day, but that is not on the menu in the forthcoming months,” Drescher, 63, told Page Six over Zoom on Tuesday. “Hopefully, we’ll be able to turn back to a time when we didn’t have to worry about such a highly contagious virus.”

After filming “The Christmas Setup,” which is Lifetime’s first LGBTQ-centric holiday film, the “Nanny” star is back at her Malibu, Calif. compound and is preparing to host only her gay ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, for Thanksgiving. For the December holidays, she is considering having a celebration with a few people who are close to her.

“I’ll create my little COVID-free bubble again with some of my nearest and dearest,” she said. “I might end up having a little tree-trimming party or Hanukkah dinner for maybe a total of six guests and I think that’s more than enough and something to look forward to and be together and not go overboard.

“… I think keeping it small and simple with a few loved ones who are likeminded is the way to go.”

“The Christmas Setup” will air on Dec. 12 on Lifetime.
