"We always write about what we know," Fran told Good Morning America. "So our own personal story inspired the series."

So, how did Fran not know?

"First of all, we met when we were 15," she explained. "So we really didn't have a whole lot of experience. We love each other. We had a good marriage. The metrosexual was really coming into vogue, so I thought that was it!"

Happily Divorced stars John Michael Higgins as Fran's former husband and airs Wednesday night on TV Land at 10:30 p.m. ET!
