The event in question saw her and a friend repeated raped by a group of home invaders who had broke in and tied up her husband.
As Fox News reports:
EXCLUSIVE: Fran Drescher is opening up about a “traumatizing” ordeal in 1985 in which intruders broke into her home, blindfolded, and tied up her then-husband, and proceeded to rape and assault Drescher and a very close pal.
“It’s really hard. I felt like I was shattered in a million pieces,” Drescher told Fox News of the incident that occurred while she and her husband at the time, Peter Marc Jacobson, were at home with a friend of Drescher’s enjoying dinner and discussing her girlfriend’s approaching wedding.
“It took me at least a year before I even felt close to being myself,” Drescher continued. “I remember I was once in a restaurant with my manager, maybe, but we were having lunch and a busboy dropped a tray of utensils and it made a loud noise and I literally jumped out of my seat and screamed. And everybody in the restaurant looked at me as I [slinked] down back into my chair.”…
“I think that in a way, we were lucky because they were apprehended and we did get closure where a lot of victims of violent crimes don’t have that, which is unfortunate,” she said. “And I know that before the guy was arrested, every time I turned a corner and looked at someone sideways, I thought, ‘Is that him? Is that him?’ You know, and it’s just – you’re traumatized. And I don’t even think that I dealt with it when it first happened like I should have or would have today knowing what I know now about how to deal with my feelings.”
