Actor Holly Robinson was probably best known in the 1990s for her role on television’s “21 Jump Street”  and her ongoing feud with former college classmate and fellow actor Robin Givens. Rodney Peete was a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles also known for his stardom on the field with the University of Southern California. On this day in 1995, the power couple took their relationship to the next level, getting married in Los Angeles. Their marriage has been one of the longest lasting in sports history, reaching 27 years. By all accounts, the Peetes are still going strong.
