I always liked Steve Harvey for his way of behaving and he seems to have worked hard to get where he is today.
He left me with the impression that he is not like all the other comedians in circulation. It was a very difficult day when Harvey was fired from NBC where he has been doing talk shows since 2012.
Steve Harvey as a good comedian has always given us a lot of laughter and his jokes and ironies related to everyday life. This helped us a lot in a world that these days is cruel.
But Steve Harvey also has a deeper side of him that we do not know.
Like all other people he has his mistakes and secrets which came to light the moment he invited his wife to the show.
There Harvey made a revelation to the public which made her cry.
Steve Harvey was born in 1957 in Welch, West Virginia, and was named Broderic after Broderic Crawford. Despite this, he is always called Steve.
Harvey’s net worth today is $ 180 million but despite that, his life has been full of difficulties.
Since childhood, he has been prejudiced that he was from the “hood”. When he was not famous he worked as a boxer, car mechanic, carpet cleaner, and postman.
Later in the 1980s, he became interested in stand-up comedy. He made his first appearance in Ohio at the Hilarities Comedy Club. The audience loved his performance. The applauses were long.
Even though it was so successful it ended with that. Harvey was homeless for several years. He slept in the car, cleaned at the gas station and swimming pool showers.
Despite all these difficulties he did not give up and started working on his dream.
Between 1996-2002, he ran the “The Steve Harvey Show” on the WB network. The show was very popular – unfortunately, it had a hard time reaching out to the African-American community.
He is known as one of the coolest entertainers in show business and the six-time Daytime Emmy Award winner has hosted Family Feud, Celebrity, Little Big Shots, radio programs, his talk show, and written four books.
Despite all these successes he stood with his feet on the ground.
Together with his wife, they run a foundation that helps over 3,000 families each year.
“I am from the hood; I never had anything. Now that I have something, I must give back, ”Steve says.
Steve Harvey has been married to Marjorie Bridges since 2007. He had been married twice before.
With his first marriage to Marcia Harvey, he had two daughters and a son with whom he lost contact when he was trying to become a famous comedian. Children today say that they understand why he left them and he does not belong to them but the world.
With his second wife, Mary Shackelford had a son named Wynton. They separated in 2005.
He has a special history with the woman he is currently married to. They met in 1990 when he was doing a stand-up comedy and he noticed a beautiful girl who was trying to find her place in the front row. Since then he thought “I will marry this girl”
Steve invited Marjorie to his show telling her she would be helping his honor and pay tribute to some of the mothers that would be coming on the show. The surprise was for her.
Steve Harvey goes on to confess that he brought Marjorie on the show to honor her for Mother’s Day! This revelation was met with a cheerful roar from the crowd and Marjorie started tearing up saying, “Don’t make me cry.” Steve went on explaining how his love for her began to bud the second he laid eyes on her at the comedy club where they met, saying that he remembers telling her, “I’m gonna marry you one day.”
Steve started telling the public the story. In front of the eyes of the whole world, he made her feel like the happiest and most appreciated woman. He showed his love for Marjorie as a wife and mother in the most remarkable way; by professing both, his love and his gratefulness for her.
