The Nanny star not only believes in aliens but she thinks that she was abducted by them. She isn’t the only person who she thinks this has happened to.

“You know, it’s funny, because Peter [Marc Jacobson] and I both saw [aliens] before we knew each other, doing the same thing, driving on the road with our dads,” she told the Huffington Post.

She then further explained, “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.”

She then continued, “I said to him, that’s what the aliens programmed us to think. But really, that’s where the chip is.” Drescher wasn’t happy when her quotes started making rounds. She later tweeted, “Must b a slow wk in huffingtonpost 2 rite an alien abduction story on me! R they goin tabloid?”

But why they would come visit here and not let themselves be known to everybody is beyond my sense of logic.”
