After the accident, Burke-Charvet, 42, predicted the gossip website’s interest in her mishap but assured fans she is safe – and was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
“Rough morning. Accident on my way 2 work. Tons of cops & of course photogs, TMZ will have fun with this one,” she Tweeted. “…Yes I was sober.”
“I’m totally fine tweeties. What an exaggeration TMZ. Hilarious headlines, boy-what-you-guys-will-do. Just an accident. No biggie,” Burke-Charvet added later.
“Of course officers had me do a sobriety test. Thx CHP for taking care of all of us, too bad the photogs blow it out of proportion.”
The TV personality drove her Maserati through a fence in Calabasas, Calif., according to TMZ. The site also reported that police say she passed a sobriety test.
