In her memoir "Cocoon of Blackness," the comedian shared the story of the time she had gone out dancing with her friend Keisha.

On their way back to campus, they went to a Mexican restaurant, and she was put in handcuffs after filling a water cup with soda. She said,

"He put handcuffs on me. And that was my introduction to the justice system."

The Emmy winner went on to say that she was separated from her friend, and put in a cell with a woman that had been beaten by the cops for speeding.

Luckily, Love was bailed out by her sorority sister in the morning, before she was transferred to central booking.

She revealed that it was the first time she was in an interracial relationship having previously only dated black or Hispanic men. She said,

"Everybody is so surprised and I'm surprised myself. But it really doesn't matter. I'm the first African American woman he's dated and he said he just didn't think about it."

While the couple does not have any children, Love had once been pregnant but tragically suffered a miscarriage.

Speaking during an episode of "The Real" she opened up about losing her child at eight weeks and deciding to never have children.

Last year the host was appointed an ambassador for Weight Watchers, joining other celebrities, including Kate Hudson and Oprah Winfrey.

Love, who attended Prairie A&M University in Texas, is an active alumnus and is passionate about providing opportunities for underprivileged kids to pursue higher education.
