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.”
Ebony magazine is showcasing several famous couples for Valentine’s Day and have 3 covers for the February 2014 issue. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, David and Tamela Mann, and Carmelo and La La Anthony are featured on the covers. They tell the magazine about their love stories, how they knew they had found “the one,” and what they do keep the fires burning.
“It was early on when I found out how spiritual she was, and we had conversations about kids and how to live life. For her to share these values, it instantly let me know this is the person I’ve always wanted.” -Nick Cannon
Steve Harvey ex-wife Mary Vaughn has been was arrested again for contempt of court. The former couple has been going back and forth to court for years now over various issues including custody of their son Wynton Harvey.
This time Mary has allegedly leaked sealed information to the media that Steve beat their son with a belt and then a paddle board in 2008 when he was caught lying to a teacher. The case was investigated by Texas Dept. of Family and Protective Services and later dismissed after the department found: “Based on the information obtained, the child does not appear to be at risk … the case is closed without further investigation.”
According to the police report, the cops took photos of the boy’s injuries, showing bruises on his buttocks and right thigh, as well as cuts on his leg. The boy also told cops that after beating he had trouble urinating for days.
After a hearing on Thursday over the leaked information, the judge found that Mary violated the protective order in the case and threw her in jail for 30 days.
A woman named Chrstina tells Steve Harvey during his “Is It Weird?” segment that she is really turned on by food during sex, especially Popeye’s spicy chicken.
“Food excites me and I mean it excites me. I look up cheese cakes and cupcakes, those little meringues….with the juicy cherries on top. That gets me going and get the tone set up here [points to head]. Then when i get into the bedroom, then I start thinking of my favorite food of all time, which Popeye’s chicken. It gets me so excited that I take that and put that in that special space in my mind. So if he’s not doing what he’s supposed to in there, then I start thinking Popeye’s spicy, Popeye’s spicy, Popeye’s spicy and it just gets me to where I need to be. Is it weird that just the thought of Popeye’s spicy chicken gets me to climax?”
And here I was using Idris Elba as my inspiration. The episode airs Thursday, April 11th.
