Fran Drescher and Peter Jacobson
Over the past 25 years, 1,492 couples have appeared on The Oprah Show. From a man who placed a detailed personal ad to find love to a woman who may be the most controlling wife in America—what ever happened to these couples? We're taking a trip down memory lane to find out.

When Oprah first talked with actress Fran Drescher, star of the '90s sitcom The Nanny, and her doting husband Peter Jacobson in 1996, their chemistry was undeniable. Fran and Peter had been together since they were just 15 years old. These high school sweethearts eventually grew into business partners, creating and producing The Nanny together.

Just three years after that interview, their seemingly perfect relationship was over. Fran and Peter didn't speak publicly about their divorce for years, leaving their fans wondering what happened. Then, in 2010, a tabloid reporter confronted them and the ex-couple confirmed the truth—Peter is now an openly gay man.
