It's been a scary month for Pauley Perrette.
As we reported, the NCIS actress came face-to-face in court with her alleged attacker David Merck who reportedly assaulted the actress outside of her Hollywood home last month.
The day after she was attacked, her friend and member of the Eagles of Death Metal band playing at the Bataclan theater in Paris narrowly escaped the devastating terrorist attack.

Needless to say, it's been a traumatic time for the 46-year-old.
While attending an event in El Lay on Sunday, the New Orleans native told reporters:
"I am so happy to be alive. I am happy to be here, and I am really happy to be here with all these people that are all just doing the right thing. … These are good hearts, good people."
As for how she's recovering from the incident, Pauley shared:
"A lot of faith. A lot of prayers, which I feel from all over the universe. [I am] a big time person of faith, because that certainly gets you through. I was at church this morning and there's just so much love and support there for me. And therapy, of course. Lots of therapy."
Happy to hear she's getting the support she needs!
