(Newser) – Fran Drescher has some new arm candy and his resume might surprise you. Shiva Ayyadurai, apparently the first person to hold a copyright for the electronic mail system "email" in 1982, is her newest love interest, the Huffington Post reports. The pair, who apparently just love Indian-American cooking, stepped out at the Beverly Hills premiere of Bridegroom earlier this week and a source tells Us Weekly they seemed "very into each other and very much in love." The source adds that Ayyadurai, now an MIT prof, even planted a smooch on the, er, distinctively-voiced Happily Divorced star.
