The news media has jumped all over the story of Fran Drescher having contacts with aliens. But Fran’s Twitter acknolwedges that it was just a joke.
The Huffington Post reported that Fran Drescher discussed her contacts with aliens with a HuffPo “reporter” by the name of “Naughty or Nice Rob.” She apparently told Rob with utter seriousness that she and her ex-hubby Peter Jacobson both saw aliens before they met, and that they both had the same scar on their hands which was from an alien abduction back in junior high. When Jacobson answered by saying her scar was from some other mundane cause, she said:
“That’s what the aliens programmed us to think. But really, that’s where the chip is.”
Drescher seemed very amused on her Twitter, saying:
Y the feeding frenzy? So weird. The reporter (& I use the term loosely) took a tongue & cheek told story & put it out as fact! I’m a comedian & if u don’t believe me ask my alien lol
But we bet that’s what the aliens told her to say. You know, people from Flushing, NY are a bit looney anyway [that includes myself - Bill G].
But people having strange contacts with aliens is serious business. Naughty or Nice Rob wouldn’t write something on the Huffington Post that wasn’t true, right?
Then again, HuffPo may be hard up for traffic. The New York Post recently reported that one year after AOL bought HuffPo for $315 million, it has shed over 5 million users.
“A total disaster from the beginning,” our source, who covers the market, said. “Between all the layoffs and redesign, it’s amazing anyone would want to work at HuffPo. They’re chasing the competition now rather than leading it.”
The place must be run by aliens. By the way, this web site is hard up for traffic also, but Tim Armstrong ain’t dropping by with $300 million.
