That’s if you believe the actress’ dramatic story about being abducted by aliens — something she truly believes happened to her.
“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”
“We both have this scar. It’s the exact same scar on the exact same spot.”
But ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson wasn’t so convinced of the couple’s extraterrestrial pasts. He says Fran got the small scar on her hand from a a drill bit or burning herself holding a hot cup of water.
“I said to him, that’s what the aliens programmed us to think,” Fran explains. “But really, that’s where the chip is.”

Most likely, what Fran Drescher experienced is sleep paralysis, a state of mind where you body is awake but your brain is still pretty much in dreamland. This isn’t as uncommon as people think and the state can give you some serious realistic hallucinations.
And of course, no alien abduction story is good without some sort of conspiracy theory, i.e. her quote “that’s what the aliens programmed us to think, but really, that’s where the chip is.”
At least her ex-husband shows more rational, critical thinking than Drescher and even states how she got her scar. Maybe that’s why they are divorced.
