The comedian, while reflecting on the accident, told DRUM that when she returned home from the hospital, she broke down in tears and wondered if this was how she would have died before enjoying the house she was trying to build with her husband.

Yup. I’ve had rifles pointed at me, 7 months pregnant wondering how threatening I looked. Hubby in his shorts and golf shirt – in Cape Town. I see these reports and wonder if I should be grateful we weren’t hurt or pissed off we didn’t escalate the matter. No apology.
