Liberty revealed that despite the attack they have decided to see out the rest of their vacation, she said: "Obviously, it was a scary incident that happened on Thursday, but we didn’t want it to affect the rest of our holiday so we’ve just been continuing on as normal and living our best lives.
"Obviously it's horrible that, that happened but we're all OK and that is the main thing, that we're safe," the television personality continued.
They revealed, however, that their time in California has come to an end, Kaz said: "We're leaving LA now, our cab's downstairs to go to the airport."
