Denise Richards is ‘thankful to be safe’ following road rage incident in Los Angeles where her vehicle was shot down
Denise Richards expressed her gratitude over Thanksgiving weekend for friends and fans who offered their support to her family nearly two weeks after a driver shot at the vehicle she was traveling in with her husband Aaron Phypers.
“I want to sincerely thank everyone who reached out to me and Aaron during this time,” she wrote on her social media platforms. “We are both very grateful to be safe.”
Richards, 51, was sitting in the passenger seat as Phypers drove his Ford F-150 to a studio in Los Angeles when a road rage incident with a driver of another vehicle occurred.

Upon arriving at the filming location, Phypers realized that the individual had shot at the back of his truck.
Richards and Phypers were uninjured in the Nov. 14 event.
“The love and support from all of you has been overwhelming!!” Richards added in his post. “We are very grateful to reach and each of you.”
Sources told People magazine that Richards was “very shaken and terrified” on set, but filmed all day anyway.

“She didn’t want to not show up for work,” the insider added. “The production company made him feel safe, but they didn’t file a complaint with the police. They now think people were after the car itself because it’s worth a lot of money. “
A few days after the ordeal, the former ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star responded to an online troll who hoped she had “taken a low-level bullet” in the neck.
“Whatever, I hope she would’ve taken a close shot in the neck honestly,” one user wrote, according to Page Six.
“Thank you. I would never wish harm on anyone,” she expressed on Twitter. “What I went through yesterday with my husband, not that you care. It was the most terrifying situation I’ve ever been in.
“I’m sorry a shot didn’t grazed my neck…a…hole.”
Twitter later deleted the user’s tweet after “violating the Twitter rules”.
