Rachel Bloom experiences a ‘true Christmas miracle’ after getting stranded during a snow storm and pleading on Twitter for a warm place
It could have been an absolutely terrible night for the seven months pregnant star and her husband when they found themselves trapped by snow in Bakersfield, mid California, late on Friday night.
In desperation, Rachel Bloom took to twitter saying: ‘Hi. My husband and I are stranded in Bakersfield…does anyone have a place we could sleep?
‘We are stranded here or theoretically north of here (every highway going south is closed) and every hotel that’s open is at least a 2-hour drive away and we’re about to just sleep in our car.

‘We figured our house was a little better than a Denny’s parking lot,’ as Karen broke in saying, ‘marginally.’
‘I tweeted we have a room, there’s cats and dogs and pie and bagels. Come on down,’ Karen continued.
