Actress Fran Drescher, best known for her roles on 'The Nanny' and news series 'Happily Divorced', claims she was abducted by aliens while in junior high. Speaking to the Huffington Post, Drescher, 53, says both she and her ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson came into contact with the alien species.
Explaining the abductions, Fran said, "You know, it's funny because Peter and I both saw [aliens] before we knew each other, doing the same thing, driving on the road with our dads.We were both in junior high. A few years later, we met, and we realized that we had the same experience. I think that somehow we were programmed to meet. We both have this scar. It's the exact same scar on the exact same spot". Jacobson is a little sketchier on the incidents, claiming that Fran's scar is likely to have come from a "drill bit" or is simply a burn. Drescher said, "I said to him, that's what the aliens programmed us to think.But really, that's where the chip is". The actress's representative is yet to make an official comment on the claims. Her news series 'Happily Divorced' was officially renewed for a second season in 2011 with TV Land ordering a further 12 episodes of the comedy, scheduled to begin airing on March 7, 2012.
The show is inspired by Drescher's real-life marriage to Jacobson, who came out as gay after their divorce in 1999. The pair have since remained friends and are business partners.
