Fran Drescher is known for her distinctive laugh but in 1985, an incident that happened to her was certainly no laughing matter. Two men broke into her Los Angeles home. While one ransacked the place, the other one raped Drescher and a friend. Her then-husband Peter Jacobson was tied up, beaten and forced to watch the entire incident. “The Nanny” star said it took a long time for her to recover and even longer to open up about the rape to the public.
