Steve And Marjorie Harvey Cover Essence February 2014 Issue

Steve Marjorie Harvey Essence February 2014

Steve and Marjorie Harvey nabbed their second Essence magazine cover with the February 2014 issue. The comedian turned media mogul hosts three hit shows: his syndicated radio show, The Steve Harvey Morning Show; Family Feud; and his daytime TV talk show, The Steve Harvey Show. He tells the magazine that the secret to his success is his wife. “Everything I have,” he says and points to his wife of seven years, “is because of this girl right here.”

He says it was love at first sight in 1990 when he saw Marjorie walk into a Memphis comedy club he was playing, and he let his feelings be known right then and there. He stood onstage and announced to her, “I don’t know who you are but I’m going to marry you.” Marjorie’s says she knew a few weeks later. “I knew he was The One shortly after I started dated him…but then he just left. Disappeared.”

The two reconnected in 2005:

“Before a man can be of use to a woman…he’s got to know who he is, what he does and how much he’s going to make.” His second marriage just ended, as did his six-year run as star of the sitcom The Steve Harvey Show, and it was a whole new ballgame. Two years later—17 years after his powerful onstage prediction that he’d one day marry her—and the two were wed.
“Every great man has a woman… I didn’t say successful man, I said great man. Yeah, maybe you’re successful if you sign a $16 million NBA contract. But greatness is when you’re the husband and father you’re supposed to be. When everyone surrounding you looks up to you, depends on you, and you come through for them. That’s greatness…Do you think Dr. Martin Luther King was anything without Coretta? You take Michelle out of Barack Obama’s equation, and he is a whole other dude out there.”

The couple faced money problems as soon as they got married: Read more
