News broke last week that Aisha Tyler and her husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, were filing for divorce. The couple were separated for around two years before they made the decision to move forward and file for divorce, and Aisha used her daytime talk show, The Talk, to express her feelings about having to deal with the split in the public eye and tell people to mind their business.
“We loved each other passionately and lived life fully and we’re trying to let each other go in the kindest way we possibly can and even though we’re separating, all I want for him is joy and fulfillment and whatever he chooses to do in his life next and whatever I can do to help him do, that I want to do that.” She continued, “He’s a wonderful person. He’s been my best friend for always my entire life. I’ll always love him. I want to say to people out there that are speculating about it, that’s what I’m going to say about the relationship and the rest of it is none of your damn business.”
In the clip, you can see Aisha get emotional and drop a few tears, so does her co-host Sheryl Underwood, but through her hurt the audience cheered her on in support of her decision. Take a look at the clip below:
