Back then, the comedian said that the key to success in their relationship was that they kept their personal and professional lives very separate. "I am not allowing him to see my stand-up comedy," she said. "I think some things are better kept secret. I don't look at his porn, he doesn't look at my stand-up. It's a very good balance."

Although Miles might have to, you shouldn't miss Whitney's newest comedy special, Jokes, now streaming on Netflix.
