The Nanny - Fran Drescher

Fran-DrescherThe list of fascinating and awesome women over fifty is endless.  I love talking about these ladies.  They are inspiring in what they do, who they are and how they never give up in the face of adversity.  Fran Drescher is one of those ladies!  Fran Drescher, of course, is best known for playing "The Nanny".  I could watch those episodes over and over.  I hear her voice in my head saying: "Mr. Sheffield!" 
 Fran Drescher has gone through so many negatives in her life, but seems to turn all the negatives into positives.  A lot of life lessons we can learn from Fran.  I never knew that in 1985 Fran and a friend were raped at gunpoint at her Los Angeles apartment as her then husband was tied up and forced to watch the entire ordeal. 
 On June 21, 2000  Fran was diagnosed with uterine cancer after being misdiagnosed by eight doctors for two years.  On June 21, 2007, the seventh anniversary of her operation, Fran started The Cancer Schmancer Movement.   This non-profit organization is dedicated to ensuring that all women's cancers are found while they are Stage 1, when they are the most curable.

Fran Drescher lands daytime talk show

Image Credit: Jim Steinfeldt/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty ImagesThe Fran Drescher Show is happening. Long rumored to be making a foray into the chat format, Drescher will get a three-week run in six major markets beginning on Nov. 26. Debmar-Mercury and Fox Television Stations will co-produce the “preview,” which, if successful on Fox-owned stations in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Minneapolis, and Orlando, would give birth to a national debut next fall. What can we expect? The one-hour talker will feature “Drescher’s witty commentary on captivating topics, current events, pop culture and interviews,” according to the announcement. It will also boast plenty of jokes about her famous voice and puns, if Drescher’s statement is any indication: ”I’m thrilled to be able to bring The Fran Drescher Tawk Show to daytime TV, which fits me hand in glove. It will cover all of my passions, everything from pedicures to politics. America will have a chance to see the real Fran Drescher, beyond The Nanny. I’m the girl next door, a self-made woman who has been to hell and back a few times. [She's a rape and cancer survivor.] I look forward to sharing my life lessons, having fun, learning Frantastic things with women in daytime and working with the Fox stations and Debmar-Mercury to bring this exciting new project to all of my fans.”
Are you in? In addition to her daily fashion choices, you have to at least want to see/hear the theme song. May we suggest a fun, animated ditty telling her life story (“…the gabber named Fran!”).                         
Can't wait for The Fran Drescher Tawk Show!
We love you Fran!
