The star and creator of '30 Rock' reveals that she and husband Jeff Richmond ended up standing by a lifeboat when the cruise ship they were sailing home to New York from Bermuda caught on fire.
Comedienne Tina Fey will always remember her honeymoon for all the wrong reasons - the cruise ship she and her husband were sailing home to New York from Bermuda caught on fire. The actress/writer admits the voyage had been a lot of fun until she found herself standing by a lifeboat about to abandon ship.
Fey recalls, "The ship was on fire, so we had to go and stand by our lifeboats... and we really had to stand women and children in the front, men in the back, and I remember holding hands with my husband, thinking like, 'Oh my gosh, we're gonna be one of those people on the news that died on their honeymoon...' "
"And he said he was thinking... 'It's gonna be so hard for her when they bring the lifeboats down and she stays with me'. I was thinking, 'It's gonna be so hard for him when I get on that lifeboat'. But it all worked out."
