Aisha Tyler and Jeff Feitjens

Jeff Feitjens and Aisha Tyler
Aisha N. Tyler and Jeff Feitjens married in 1992. Aisha is an actress and comedian, and Jeff is an attorney.

I got this from Black Voices:
Aisha Tyler and husband Jeff Tietjens met at Dartmouth College and moved to California where Tyler began her acting career. The comedian said that Oakland was tough for the couple at times.

"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?'" Tyler has said

My Comments: It is rare that we hear the point of view of famous couples Just Like Me. Finding this quote was a treat. Also rare was being able to find a picture of her with her hubby. Of the thousands of beautiful pictures she was often with other actors or alone. Again, I believe it's a privacy issue.

My Comments (9/15): There are a lot of questions surrounding a possible pregnancy for Paula. Pictures that Getty Images has dated early September 2007 show Paula with a bump under her swishy gold dress, and dated late December 2007 show Paula in a very puffy and seemingly filled out dress. However, two months later the pouf is gone. My helpful commenter has provided some links to the two denying any pregnancy, but the pictures are hard to look past. For anyone else who has been watching this particular post "evolve" I think I'll stick with part of my original statement, that I think they want privacy and I will respect that.
