Everyone’s favorite nanny – after Mary Poppins, Fran Drescher, may in fact not be from Flushing but from outer space.
“You know, it’s funny because Peter (Fran’s ex-husband) and I both saw [aliens] before we knew each other, doing the same thing, driving on the road with our dads,” Fran tells me, in all seriousness. “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,” Fran tells Naughty But Nice Rob when we met up for drinks.
Her ex-husband wasn’t so convinced and says Fran got the scar on her hand from a drill bit or burning herself holding a hot cup of water. But Fran insists – it was aliens.
“I said to him, that’s what the aliens programmed us to think. But really, that’s where the chip is.”
