Aisha Tyler Divorce: ‘The Talk’ Host Thanks Fans For Support (VIDEO)
Aisha Tyler thanked all of the fans who’ve been supporting her following her divorce from Jeff Tietjens on Tuesday’s “The Talk.” Watch the video below.
As Gossip Cop reported, Tietjens filed for divorce from Tyler earlier this month after more than 20 years of marriage. And as we also noted, Tyler cried on “The Talk” on Monday while publicly addressing her split for the first time. On Tuesday’s show, the co-host took a moment to express gratitude for all the support she’s received from fans on social media.
“It was extraordinary how many people posted online… on Twitter, on ‘The Talk’ Facebook page,” said Tyler. She continued, “And typically when you look on those pages, it’s a lot of very snarky and unkind comments. But I’ve never seen so much kindness come out of the Internet in my entire adult life. I want to thank everybody. I’m very grateful.”
Tyler and Tietjens initially separated in January 2015, but the TV personality never discussed her relationship difficulties during that time. She explained on Monday’s episode of the show, “We were really fighting to try and stay together… There was no reason to talk about it until we figured out what we were doing.” Tyler also expressed she still loves her ex-husband, and the two intend to remain friends.
