If you didn’t spend your New Year’s Eve watching Botoxed Elf on a Shelf Ryan Seacrest and the return of Mariah Carey on ABC or the shit show on CNN, then you might have tuned into Fox. And in very old school Fox fashion, their show featured the stunt of all TV stunts: a live wedding!
Back in May, Steve Harvey sent out a memo to his staff and new employees in Los Angeles where his talk show was relocating, informing them of the do’s and do-not-do’s of working with Steve Harvey. It was a lot of words that essentially added up to: do not under any circumstances approach/ambush/talk to/make eye contact with Steve Harvey without an appointment to do so. Even if the building is burning down, let Steve Harvey figure that shit out on his own.
Steve Harvey’s staff learned in a memo that went out this week that the next time they try to talk to him at work without making an appointment, his security guards will banish their asses away from his presence. Steve’s talk show is moving to L.A. from Chicago and he threw down some new rules, like not bothering him in the hallways or his dressing room or his makeup chair or anywhere else. The memo was probably leaked by a Chicago staff member who was pissed that Steve’s not taking them to L.A. Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier talked to Steve over the phone about the memo. Like the concept of Asian men being fuckable, Steve Harvey can’t grasp why his letter went everywhere, but he’s not sorry about it. Because whenever he was in his dressing room, he felt like he needed to put on prison stripes and fight a rat for a piece of stale bread. Poor Steve felt like a prisoner in his own dressing room.
The bald bad advice-giver whose name is not Dr. Phil is moving his talk show, Steve Harvey, from Chicago to L.A. (Side note: You’re not alone if you started singing Route 66 after reading “Chicago to L.A.”) and he’ll be working with a mostly new crew once they start shooting this fall. The show’s location isn’t the only thing that’s changing, Steve Harvey has spit out a memo to his staff, telling them that if they even think of knocking on his dressing room door or coming up to him in the hallway without a scheduled appointment, they’ll find their asses flying through the air after his security guards kick them away.
Bald bag of dumb Steve Harvey is in the middle of a lawsuit from a former employee who is accusing him of telling his fans to beat up old white ladies (Steve Harvey’s side claims the former employee is just trying to shake him down for money), so it was the perfect time for him to dust off a grandpapa’s old racist jokes and spit them out during a recent episode of his talk show.
