Angela Rye is a fizzy character, one not to take no for an answer.

Reasons for her determination could be because of a man in her life she is hiding or perhaps she has given up on a love that makes her such a fantastic attorney. 

As we go through her personal life, we unfold the mystery of what makes her tick and to whom she has been dating recently and a particular incident that involves lawbreaking, more to read ahead.

Interestingly, it was not Angela breaking the law. Instead, it was a TSA officer misusing his right to check her on 15th December 2016.

She has said she was very upset about the fact she was humiliated during the process of the pat down. She revealed she was comfortable and relaxed before the actual pat saying;

“I'd grow Randomly selected for additional screening? Child, please -- not "Diamond on Delta" me. So when I was selected in a nearly completely empty Detroit Metropolitan Airport last night, I thought it was ridiculous. I have grown accustomed to breezing through the security screening process in five minutes or less.”

But, during the process, she walked towards the metal detector to the backscatter X-ray machine. After that, the TSA agent told her to spread her legs and asked why she had put her legs further than the suggested yellow feet imprint.

What happened next was the backscatter machine alerted to her right boot. And, the pat on started: 

“I didn't care about anything but one place on my body. I said in complete disbelief: "You know you aren't patting down my ******, right? Like that's NOT happening."

The TSA officer said that her superiors insisted on the pat-down unless stated otherwise. So, Angela had no way to get on without a pat down.

The pat-down began and was uneventful until she went down my leg, up my dress, and her hand sideways hits me right in the crack of my *****. Startled, I jump and feel a lump in my throat trying to hold back tears.

Angela added, 

She comes around to the front; I grow nervous and pull back a bit, afraid of the same thing happening -- and her sideways hand hits in the middle of my genitals again. I can no longer hold back the tears. The officer drops the phone to his waist. He tells me he is going to write up an incident report.

She had ended with a few words in mind,

“Things don't change unless we ask questions and demand answers. We do not have to do something because it's always been done -- that does not make it right. Perhaps it's time for the TSA to invest in new equipment. It is definitely time for them to keep their hands away from *******.”

Indeed, such an incident would leave no person infuriated. 

Angela Rye Dating Life

The world took notice when Angela started dating rapper Common in 2017. The pair were seen painting the town red in various red carpet ceremonies.

When her man became EGO(Emmy, Grammy, And Oscar) shy of Tony award from becoming EGOT- a talented person in Hollywood with all the major awards - the loudest cheer was from Angela.

She accompanied Common for the ceremony and wrote kind words about her man’s win on Instagram.

Things were going well for the lovebirds and fans also loved their undeniable chemistry, but the love couldn’t last. In March 2018, the journalist-rapper duo parted ways as a couple. Interestingly, they mentioned about remaining friends forever.

Parents & Net Worth

Angela - a thirty-nine-year-old attorney - comes from an extensive background of political history. More than that, she hails from a family with supportive parents. Her father is a community organizer and a small business consultant whereas her mother a retired college administrator.

She graduated from University of Washington and Seattle University School of Law. She served many publications such as Marie Claire, Ebony, Washington Post, C-Span, HBO, BET, The Root, The Grio, MSNBC and more.

Now, she holds a job at CNN as a political commentator.

Her long run career should be giving her a sizeable collective net worth, but there is no official information about her exact net worth. Angela’s salary is another mystery with no given data.

In addition to her journalistic work, she served on the boards of Congressional Black Caucus Institute, Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network, and Seattle University School of Law Alumni.
