Richards’ toned legs her highlighted in a pair of leggings styled with knitted leg warmers.

Her bright blonde hair was swept up in a high ponytail with a black scrunchie.

She shielded her eyes with large design shades and spoke on speaker phone during the call.

Unlike her tear-filled call last Wednesday, the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen appeared to just be enjoying a casual, drama-free chat with a friend or family member.

The actress was en-route to Popsicle Studio LA in South Los Angeles on Monday, November 14 with her husband Aaron Phypers when the pair’s Ford F-150 Shelby truck was hit by gunfire in a life-threatening attack.

Both escaped injury in the incident.

Phypers, 50, was driving the truck with Richards in the passenger seat when gunfire broke out.  

Phypers was having difficulty locating the studio space which appeared to irritate a driver behind them.

A source told PEOPLE that Phypers noticed a ‘gold and maroon van’ following them and that the driver of the van was ‘obviously pissed.’

‘He could tell — he kept making rights because they were clearly being followed,’ the insider explained, adding that the couple were ‘frantic.’

Though Phypers let them pass, the driver reportedly pulled up to the left of the truck. Phypers rolled down his window down to address the driver, who was accusing him of cutting them off.

Phypers apologized and drove away from the driver, who continued to shout.

According to PEOPLE, the couple did not realize their vehicle had been shot on the back end on the driver’s side until they arrived at Popsicle Studio LA.

‘The guy had taken off by then, but when they realized the car was shot, they were really freaked out, and the production secured the scene,’ the insider explained. 

One member of the film’s production crew caught sight of the bullet hole in the truck and got ahold of 911.

Brave face: Despite the traumatic ordeal, Richards ended up working on set for 12 hours and Phypers remained on location for the duration of the shoot. The actress appeared in a snap that was shared to her co-star Korrina Rico's Instagram Story on Monday

As of now, it’s unknown if cops ever showed up though LAPD are now said to be investigating the incident.  

‘The production company made her feel safe but they didn’t file a police report. They think now that people were after the car itself because it’s worth a lot of money,’ the insider added.

No one was injured but the incident left Richards ‘unnerved’ and ‘sobbing.’ She was at the studio for a one-day shoot for her upcoming film Angels Fallen: Warriors of Peace. 

Despite being ‘very shaken up and terrified.’ Richards ended up working on set for 12 hours.

Phypers remained on location for the duration of his wife’s film shoot. 

Once the day wrapped, Phypers and Richards were escorted by an off-duty cop, who happened to be on set, and headed back to their Los Angeles home.
