PHOTOS! Here again is a picture of Aisha Tyler and her husband Jeff Tetjens. Aisha Tyler and husband Jeff Tietjens, profiled on LALATE in February, met at Dartmouth.
They’ve been in love ever since.
But after their Dartmouth meeting, Los Angeles was not the next stop for the adorable couple. Tyler’s next stop this year is to an ABC talk show of her own. In May reports that ABC has given the green line for a pilot taping of the Aisha Tyler Show. The program produced by ABC Media would mix comedy and political chatter like the Daily Show.
Tyler and Tietjens headed west after graduation, but Los Angeles was not the next stop.
Together they moved to Oakland after graduation into a mostly African American section of town. Tyler describes that experience:
“We had to ride the bus be-cause we didn’t have a car and it was like the gauntlet every day. It was exhausting because we could not walk down the street without brothers yelling and catcalling lame, tired old lines like, ‘Once you go black, you never go back!’ or asking ‘Why are you with that white boy?’”
Shortly after that ,the two moved to San Francisco. But by the late 1990s, they had moved to Los Angeles. By 2001, Tyler was hosting E!’s Live Countdown to the Academy Awards. Jeff is reportedly a lawyer in Los Angeles.
