: Steve Harvey's got a strange way of saying thanks to his female fans. According to one of MediaTakeOut.com's faithful readers, the top-rated morning radio personality has his security team do his dirty work.
Here's what our reader said happened:
This weekend I saw Steve Harvey & wife in the lobby of the Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda being mobbed by women. After refusing to take any photos unless his wife was in the picture with him, his body guard passed a card to each of the groupies that stated:
"Looking for Closure in your life? Start by closing your legs."
We love Steve, but that right there is extra tacky
His body guard is also an author of a book by the same title, if you listen to the show you would know what that was about. that was not steve being rude, that was his body guard trying to promote his project. MTO SUCKS.
Ok, it says his BODYGUARD handed out the card...not Steve. Why is he being held responsible? Secondly, I don't blame Steve for wanting his wife in the picture. Hell, show that woman respect! Thirdly, I wouldn't be surprised if this admiring fan was really an employee for MTO. MTO sent her out to take a picture with Steve, so that they can post it on here saying, "Steve Harvey cheats on wifey."
Am I the only one that dosen't think any of that is wrong. All those chicks wanted to do was get at him anyway and he respects his wife too much to let that happen. I think its good will make people acknowledge he has a wife and not disrespect her. KUDOS
HE DIDNT GIVE IT TO THEM SO WHY IS STEVE BLAMED?! HIS BODYGUARD IS THE ONE TO BLAME! BUT I DID HEAR ON THE RADIO THAT HE WASNT TAKING ANY PICTURES UNLESS HIS WIFE WAS IN THEM.
I FOR ONE AM GLAD HE DID THAT...DUMB CHICKS BE ACTIN LIKE THEY CANT GET ON WITH THEY LIFE CAUSE THEY SEEN A CELEBRITY...LMAOOOOOOO...CLOSE YA LEGS HEFFERS...LMAOOOOOOO...I CANT WAIT TO HEAR YA RESPONSE...ACKNOWLEDGE THE MAN AND SHOW YA RESPECT BUT DONT DISRESPECT HIM..HE HAS A LIFE AND A WIFE...HE WASNT PERFORMING HE WAS WITH HIS COMPANION...BITCHES ALWAYS GOTTA BE ALL OVER GROPING AND SHIZ...OUT OF POCKET...OUT OF LINE...SAME FOR YOU MALE GROUPIES TOO...MAN UP!
I live in Bermuda and we are a small island(21 miles) so this doesn't surprise me because when famous people come here they act like they can treat us however they feel and nobody will find out about it.
BUT WHAT IS SO TACKY ABOUT THAT? HE TOLD THEM ON THE RADIO THAT HE WAS NOT TAKING PICTURES WITHOUT HIS WIFE. SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? HE'S ALLOWED TO DO WHAT HE WANTS TO DO WHEN HE'S ON VACTION WOULD YOU WANT PEOPLE BOTHERING YOU WHILE YOU ON VACATION?
IF THIS IS TRUE. . . I think it's funny. But honestly some of these women could have really JUST WANTED A PICTURE. Note to Steve Harvey, you aint all that not every woman is tryna lay up with you ol'Grecian-dark-rinse-lemme-cover-my-grays-azz
why would anyone need a picture with his wife, who exactly is she. does she have a radio show or tv career. The card is I think a promo 4 Tommys new book. thats the name of it.
Who was to say they were groupies if they just wanted a picture and his ass wasn't on vacation he was here to host the Bermuda Music Festival and he was doing his radio show from here.
Trust me Bermudians could care less about celebrities especially a Z-lister like Steve Harvey!! F uckin Michael Douglas lives here and goes grocery shopping with regular folks and drives a peugeot!! Ain't nobody down in Bermy have time to be worrying about theses z-listers!
Steve is an A-list all the way. I dont believe this at all. I met Steve in Miami and we had no problem taking pictures with him. Well my friends didnt I went there to get my hair done and it was not done yet so of course I didnt get in the picture but he was really nice
Why is this man famous? Why is the black community supporting him? Because he hosted Apollo? He's not funny. His jokes are very hateful towards black people. Particularly anyone whose fat, gay, very dark skinned or looks a little odd or ugly in his eyes. Politically incorrect jokes are supposed to be funny not hateful. Especially with the person standing right next to you.
When he hosted the Apollo he would make sure those fat, gay, very dark skinned, ugly people would stand at arms length away from him. If it was a light skinned, good looking man or woman he would hug them and pull them right next to him. I don't know how black people can laugh at his obviously hate based jokes.
LOL okay he is addressing the issue now on his show. He said that he will take pictures but if his wife is with him and people don't want her to be in the picture that he will not do it because that is disrespectful for her. THAT WOMAN ARE ALWAYS CRYING ABOUT HOW MEN ARE SO DISRESPECTFUL AND HERE HE IS BEING RESPECTFUL AND WE STILL COMPLAINING. He said that some women took the picture with his wife....He wants people to respect him and his wife he is not pushing his wife to the side for anyone.
ALL I CAN SAY IS GO AHEAD STEVE.
He said the card is a book that is bodyguard has written and that is like a "promotional" thing. He didn't tell him to do it he did that on his own.
Can't stand this Deputy Dawg looking thing. He is so UNFUNNY (Unfurry as the crackhead on my block said). I haven't liked him since I saw him on the Kings of Comedy Tour and he told us that we were Bougie and stuck up. Huh??? Then got a nerve to tell us we were gonna laugh at his jokes cuz he was funny. Within 5 minutes of his act, there were only 1/4 of the audience left. He's a boob.
WHAT PEOPLE DON'T KNOW IS THAT STEVE'S SECURITY, WHOSE KNOWN AS "BOOM" IS ALSO AN AUTHOR OF A BOOK THAT HELPS WOMEN DEAL WITH RELATIONSHIPS...THE NAME OF THE BOOK IS "IF YOU WANT CLOSURE, START WITH YOUR LEGS". THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH STEVE BEING RUDE. STEVE IS A GREAT COUNSELOR TO FEMALES FANS. MTO, AND THE PERSON THAT SENT THIS IS NOT A FAN AND DON'T LISTEN TO THE SHOW TO KNOW THAT STEVE IS THE GREATEST VOICE TO HELP WOMEN WITH SORRY ASS DUDES. STEVE IS A REAL MAN...AND ANYONE THAT THINKS OTHERWISE DON'T KNOW THE VALUE OF A REAL MAN.....
Steve did not want to disrespect his wife. Groupies somethime get a little overzealous and thirsty. He is just a man, Steve hasd to go home with his wife not you! Boomerrange is an author and was advertising his book"If you want closesure in your relationship start withyour legs"! That's all! Lets not hate but celebrate!
He just addressed this on his show. I do not blame people for not wanting her in the picture. nobody knows her she is not famous. He has issues and is nervous about people putting pictures on the internet of him and some woman so he figures if she is in the pic it wont look bad.
I can believe it!! We went to meet Mr Harvey at a meet & greet the first time he came to Chicago to do radio a few years back. We use to really enjoy watching him on TV and listening to him on the radio. But after witnessing and experiencing his poor attitude we quickly turned him off!! His attitude is truly STANK!!! To this day we no longer watch his shows or listen to him on the radio!!!
it was a marketing ploy for his book folks. he talks about it on his morning show.
the reason for him taking the pics w/ his wife included is he's smart. this cuts down a lot of drama in celeb marriages. she doesn't have to worry about random pics of her husband on mto and sites like it claiming the woman to be a new fling etc. he's learned something from his past marriages.
So he tells women to respect his wife by DISREPECTING HIS FANS telling them to close their legs. They didn't want to f*ck him. THEY ONLY WANTED A PICTURE.
STEVE HARVEY IS FULL OF SH!T!!!!
Hey Steve. SUCK MY MUTHASUCKIN DILDO. B!tch!!!!!!!!
There are few celebrities I feel this strongly about. He is at the top of this list.
Ya know people who are mad at this man for standing up for his wife should just be ashamed of yourselves. If it were you, would you shove your wife aside just to please a stranger? I don't think so. Let that man live.
I don't believe that sh!t. He all up on the radio talking about respect his wife but handing out promotional cards that tells women to close their legs WITHOUT EXPLAINING to them what it's about.
WHAT DID HE EXPECT THEM TO THINK?
"Oh, Steve Harvey gave me a card telling me to close my legs and stop f*cking. He must think highly of me"!
He can lie all he want but those women know what he intended by his action and those cards.
I just listened to his show & this is his explanation:
A woman asked to take a pic with him so he put his arm around her and his wife was on the other side. The woman "pushed" his wife to get her out of the picture.
That was down right rude of this woman & this is the reason why celebs are cold at times toward fans.
I heard his show this morning and he made reference to this incident.I agree with Steve that he's not pushing his wife to the side for some rude fan to take a picture, even if he's a celebrity.Celebrities still have their own lives to live, not to be at the fans beckon and call because they want a picture.Stop being so star struck and get a life.
I think we gotta cut this man some slack. He's had a few failed marrages. I think this time he wants to do the right thing. If his wife is with him, out of respect for her, he should have her in the pictures. There's nothing wrong with that.
whats the problem? sounds like a smart cat to me, he doesnt want to get a call from his wife cussin' him out because she logged on to MTO and saw a pic of him and his "pregnant mistress on a secret vacation"
Steve commented on this today and I agree with him. Like he said, how would that woman feel if she was his wife and he told her to step aside so he could take a picture with another woman? If I was married to a celebrity, I wouldn't be stepping aside for anyone and if my husband told me to, he would be in trouble. He was on vacation chillin with his wife. He doesn't have to take pictures with anyone. If she really didn't want his wife in the picture, she could just crop her out later.
Steve also said that the guard his bodyguard was passing out was a promotion for his book.
I absolutely agree with Steve. The nerve of some of these women. I would never say "I want a picture with you, but not your wife" I mean, what's the big deal? The man is married and he ain't pushing his wife aside for no damn body. You go, Steve. And while I don't know anything about this book, the quote was right on point. A lot of women do need to keep their damn legs closed.
OHHHH THAT WAS HIS BODYGUARD ON THE RADIO DOWN HERE IN BERMUDA?! PUH-LEASE HE SOUNDED SO STUPID I CAN'T STAND WHEN PEOPLE WRITE THOSE STUPID RELATIONSHIP ADVICE BOOKS, HIS BODYGUARD HAS NERVE! I WAS LIKE WHO IS THIS CORNY ASS OLD MAN TRYNA GIVE PEOPLE ADVICE!!
F uck STEVE HARVEY AND HIS WIFE!! WHY WOULD THEY WANT HER IN THEIR PICTURE? HE AINT FUNNY WITH HIS HORSE TEETH AND AINT NO WAY IN HELL WERE THEY TRYNA SLEEP WITH HIS UGLY MUG ASS!! PLEASE HE IS FEELING HIMSELF WAYYY TO MUCH! HE BETTA NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT COMING BACK BERMUDA NEXT YEAR!
ALL THOSE GROUPIES ATTACK CELBS LIKE THEY ARE'NT PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU AND I. IF HE DON'T WANT TO DO SOMETHING WHY SHOULD HE? AND I DON'T BELIEVE HE WOULD MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT THAT DISREPECTFUL UNLESS HE WAS BEING A COMEDIAN. BUT I LISTEN TO STEVE HARVEY EVERY MORNING AND HIS SHOW IS FUNNY AND TASTEFUL. HE SAID THESE WOMEN WERE TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF HIM IN THE CASINO AND YOU CAN'T TAKE PICTURES OF ANYKIND IN A CASINO. IF PEOPLE WAKE UP AND GET SOME SENSE AND STOP LISTENING TO GOSSIP LIKE THIS BULLSHIT OM HERE BEFORE YOU COMMENT AND SOUND DUMB. AND MY SON FATHER SAID HE SEEN FOXY BROWN IN JAMACIA AND SHE SAID SHE DID'NT WANT NO ONE TO TAKE PICTURES BECAUSE PEOPLE HACK THEM UP AND DO CHOP JOBS LIKE THE BITCH DID OSCAR DE LA HOYA. SO I DON'T BLAME HIM FOR SAYING PUT HIS WIFE IN IT,NEXT THING YOU KNOW HE BE RUNNING WITH A MAN OR SOME OTHER CHICK BESIDES HIS WIFE!!! THIS MAN IS NO DUMMY, HE'S BEEN THERE AND DONE IT AGAIN!
STEVE IS COOL WITH ME!
AND HE ALSO SAID PEOPLE CAN TAKE ALL THE PICTURES THEY WANT AT THE HOODIE AWARDS!
AND BY THE WWAY HE IS PROUD OF HIS WIFE LIKE A CHRISTIAN MAN SHOULD,IT'S WRITTEN!
That's sad because he specifically said on his show that if anyone wanted to take pictures do so that day and he would stay and take as many pictures as people wanted to talk, in return, he asked that people allowed him to spend one day with his wife without having to stop and do the picture thing, he warned that if someone still wanted to take a pic it would have to be with his wife. Some women are ridiculous, here's one brother trying to show some respect for his wife, you would think the groupies would back off for one day...damnn
@ whatwhat read my statement again....he did not pass those out his body guard is writing a book and that is the title of the book. Steve Harvey had nothing to do with that.
People get mad when a black man disrespects his wife and now they get mad because he respects his damn yall need to stop being so damn bipolar and pick if your for or against respecting your mate.
I understand exactly what he is saying. Why should he let a fan push his woman out of the picture and tell his woman to her face that "I don't want you in my picture!" That is disrespectful to him and her.
Thank you ladytee35! I listened to Steve Harvey on WGCI, in Chicago this morning! He spoke very candidly about it. He stated he had absolutely no problem with taking pictures. He clearly stated, he takes pictures with his wife.
He's not going to push her aside for no one. He respects and honors her! They are one! He basically stated that many of the female fans are very rude, and on one incident his wife was pushed aside by a fan and they were like..."naw, I don't want her in the picture." Steve, kindly told her "then you don't want a picture!" These women are insane!
That is his wife! You wouldn't do that to any one else's spouse, so why would you do it to a man you don't even know? Steve stated that many of the women, like to do this as if they are with him! I can truly believe how star-struck some women behave! I'm truly a fan now more than ever!
His body guard is writing a book, and was promoting himself. Those cards, "Want Closure Close Your Legs, had nothing to do with Steve. Therefore, he stated take it up with his bodyguard.
I was about to say the same thing. I listen to Steve Every morning on KDAY in Cali and he was on Vacation. What's wrong if he doesn't want to take a pic with a female fan without his wife?? HE IS SMART!! HE don't want that ISH floatin around saying I have an Affair with STEVE!!! And his Bodyguard Boomerang was promoting his book that's the title. You can find it on Steve's website or google it.
I don't believe this story, but if I did, the women were probably acting like the typical groupie and Steve had to let them know, it's not even going down like that, you want a pix include my wife or keep it moving, that's what's up, before you know it, some trick is hollering rape.....He did the right thing!!!!!
I definitely believe it because he has said that on his morning show on several occasions when women write in about relationships, and I have to agree with him. You want the relationship to be over, stop giving him your goods!!!!
MTO , in your quest for a sensational story ,you seem to be so irresponsible. Don't anyone over there fact check these stories????? It seems as though anyone can make up s/h/i/t, and feed it to ya'll. Its a good thing most of these people up in here don't buy the bulls**t.
MTO you should check your info before you put it on your site. Steve addressed this, this morning on his radio show. he said he does not take pictures without his wife so that they cannot be doctored for ex "Steve cheats on wife". furthermore the bodyguard (Big Boom) is promoting his own book "If you want closure in your relationship, start with your legs", which has been out about 1 yr now. Get you facts STRAIGHT!!!!!
I think he is very rude I saw him at the casino in New Orleans during the Essence festival and he walked through there like he owned the place. The body guards was telling people to stand back and don't take his pictures. Hell, who want to.
What's the big deal, he was willing to take the picture as long as it included his wife, and if the person was a real fan she would have known that the body guard was actually pushing the book he wrote.
I'm no Steve Harvey fan but he did the right thing by respecting his wife.He's gotta live with that chick. Some of these chicks out here are real aggresive and can't take no for an answer.I've had female coworkers(white/black) beg me to hang out after work repeatedly.I always say no I'm going home to MY GIRL and their like, you gotta go out without her sometimes. Yeah right!I should file a sexual harrassment suit.Damn psychos.
@pimpenk what you put that 1 up there for? you thought you were first? well you weren't so therefore you're a DUMB A.S.S. anyway steve has the most annoying flat accent i have ever heard. he got his format from the THW WILLIS JOHNSON SHOW out here in dallas!
At first I LAUGHED MY AZZ OFF. But then it bothered me. That's rather presumptuous of Steve to assume our legs are in fact open. But..... that IS a part of his morning show. Listeners send in letters about their exes and how they want it to be over, truly over, yet they are still sleeping with them. That's when he came up with the "if you want closure close your legs". I aint mad at 'em. It's like Adelle Givens having a card that reads "I'm such a fvkkin lady" or Monique with "skinny b1tchez are evil".
I don't think it went down like that at all....Steve Harvey had said once on his show that he had a pregnant fan wanting to take a picture, and that he said "someone else need to get in this pic, because I don't want it all over the internet like I am the baby's daddy!" Thats why he is doing that, to avoid the lies that people would start, and yall know MTO would be saying it too. And as far as his guard passing out cards telling women to close their legs, he had a former bodyguard name Big Boom, and that may have been him, that has a book currently out, and the title is "If you want closure, start with your legs". Look it up.
I'm going to give Steve the benefit of the doubt here. This man is a celebrity and HAS to protect himself. He's well aware of the devious lengths groupies will go to to hook a celeb. Look at the lying woman who took pictures of the boxer then lied about it. Someone could take pictures of Steve and sell their fake story to a tabloid saying they were lovers. Steve is using common sense and if these girls are innocent, they can thank the groupies who came before them for the attitude. I would be the same way!
On The View, Whoopee Goldberg said she's watching what she says all the time so she doesn't end up on YouTube. Just like the Jena 6, Bill O'Reilly story, Genarlow Wilson, etc., people will edit a story and make you believe it, even though they left out some very important pieces of information!
Steve told this story himself on his radio show last Friday! He said the woman was rude; because she didn't want Marjorie in the pictures. Take the package, or nothing at all...he's a married man. Whatever book his bodyguard has written isn't a reflection of Steve's choice to keep his wife inclusive when they're out together. Get over it, or check your motives Lady.
Black women cant stand REJECTION. Steve is a real brotha..and alot of black women dont respect men who tell the truth about them. His statement is truth...close and lock your goods up women...and men can respect you more..no man respects a woman giving it away to everybody.
I wonder if the lady was a visitor to the island because Bermudian women don't trip like that over celebrities..Your coolthe first time they met you but Steve has been coming to Bermuda for 3 years now..He is like family so people won't be acting crazy trying to get a pic of him.When Steve hosted the show on Saturday he was a bit pissed that bermudians did not clap or scream when he came on stage but that just how we are We don't trip
MTO, You are really reaching with this one.. I know Steve Harvey and his HUGE EGO can be a bit much at times, (This man acts as if he is the only person in the world that has some money!) In his defense, the card that was passed out refers to his bodyguards' lame ass book!
fuk dat big teef and i do mean teef, big lip black hair spray for the side burns wearing a$$ bastard, if it was not for the money his wife would left his ass alone he is a very ugly bastard..............
COME ON... I cant believe it but if its true his wife needs a grip sounds like she is insecure.. no pics unless she is in them... yea that request is straight from an insecure womans mouth...
Yup. agree! I'm not insecure at all so I wouldn't be shaking if a chick wanted a pic. But if she knew I was in his life and she was up to no good..welll..thats another story. But regardless a man shall do what he wants to. Moving on so funny but true what he said. I f he pushes the groupie hoez aside thats respect better him cheat right?
STEVE HARVEY...you are SMART. That's what you have to do....otherwise you'll be like Akon and someone will claim you took advantage of them or sexually harassed them....BE RUDE all you need too. Keep you wife by your side...so no one else can lie and say you were with them. You're damned if you don't and damned if you do. YOu made the right CHOICE HARVEY...SMART MAN
Good for him,if he's out and about and if someone wants a picture,and if he doesn't want his wife to step aside,then so be it.
But,I can say that he has a big ego from what I'VE seen.He hosted the Bermuda Music Festival this year and last year,both for one day each.And he was getting a bit upset because we weren't laughing loud or hard enough at his jokes.I thought he was kidding at first but he kept at it.
And he walked right by me,and from what I could see there weren't people running after him for his autograph or to get pictures taken.We lot don't really trip like that over here.
But like I said before,good for him if he wants to keep his wife in the photos,it's his choice.
Givepeace is absolutely correct. People who are listeners of his show would know that about his body guard's book.
And so what if he wants his wife to be in the pics. I would say thats pretty honorable on his part.
STEVE IS STILL ADDRESSING THIS ISSUE. TO ME IT IS NOT THAT DEEP. I MET HIM IN PHILLY AFTER HE HAD BEEN ON THE ROAD FOR THREE WEEKS. HE WAS VERY CORDIAL AND POLITE, BUT THEN AGAIN I AM NOT STAR STRUCK SO HE DIDN'T STRIKE ME AS BEING NOTHING OTHER THAN HISSELF. HE IS FUNNY TO ME AND I ENJOY HIM.BUT YALL GOT TO REMEMBER THAT HE GOT A LIFE TO THAT HE MUST DEAL WITH AS WELL AS HIS FANS.AND WE ALL KNOW ABOUT PHOTO SHOP AND MTO.
He has to deal with "stans" all the damn time! I appreciate him respecting his wife over all those rude chicken heads! He just said happy birthday to his wife on his show today (10/10/07), so he's showing her love and I think that's the way it should be. After God, she should be above all the other stuff in his life along with his kids.
I don't know about the "passing out the cards" thing, but I do remember hearing him on his show about a year ago that he said that he does not take pictures by himself with any famales. He stated that he once went through an airport and a female fan approached him for a photo opportunity. He posed with the lady, and next thing he knew, that photo was circulating around in the media that he was having an affair on his "then" wife with this lady. He went on to say that the rumor connected with the photo was that the image was of them returning from a secret rendezvous trip. This was the days before "photoshop" when fake pictures were easily detecable. But the image was real and but the rumor was not. This caused many issues in his marriage. So after that he vowed that he no longer takes photos with females unless someone else is in the photo with them. While i can understand that, he must not realize that now with photoshop, those photos can be altered to look as if his wife was never there. But I guess by putting her in the photo, if it ever popped up without her, he can easily say "well you were there". Great way to to cover your A$$ Steve!
FOR YOUR INFORMATION MEDIAFAKEOUT.COM..... STEVE HARVEY'S BODYGAURD BIG BOOM... HAS WRITTEN A BOOK CALLED IF YOU WANT CLOSURE IN YOUR LIFE; START WITH YOUR LEGS... NOT THAT HE WAS BEING RUDE.. IT WAS JUST SIMPLE PROMOTING THAT WAS TAKEN THE WRONG WAY.. CHECK YOUR INFO BEFORE YOU PRINT!!!
If you know Steve Harvey you'll know his bodyguard Big Boom is the author of the book "If You Want Closure in Your Life, Start With Your Legs" It was simply a card with Boom's title on it. Plus Steve has said time and time again, if he wife is with him and someone wants to take a picture she will be in the picture. Some of the ladies don't want to take the picture with his wife in there. Show the man respect. He wants his wife in the picture, and if you don't want to take the picture with her in it, then just move on. Stop trying to make Steve sound bad. I look up to him, and what he did is no where near wrong.
Ok, so what? You're not star struck. Well, that's you. Some people are. Some people like to see celebrities even if you don't. I'm sure if this were someone that YOU liked, you wouldn't be speaking so negetively towards the people who do like Steve. I'm neither here nor there with him. So you have celebrities living where you live. LOL You think Bermuda is the ONLY place celebrities live? Typically, they buy houses there to escape to cold of winter. Celebrities live all over the world. Big deal that they live in Bermuda too. Bermuda ain't Heaven. And quit counting folks money. So what, you think he's a "Z-Lister." When it comes to celebrity, and/or financial status, you don't even make the list at all. I think I'd much rather earn what Steve's makes, over someone doing nothing but offering lip service via the internet.
Ok, I'm all the hell done with this story. It's time for me to find some other idiot to pick on.
In a way I don't blame him. There are so many chickens out here that would use that picture against him (lying and claiming to be a mistress) it's happened to famous people before.
If wifey is in it, they'll have a harder time photoshopping. LOL
He was not being rude...That statement is from Boomerang's book...Stop trying to find reasons to hate on Steve...and show some respect..you don't know what kind of things the women fans were saying for him to say that he will only take pics with his wife included...LEAVE HIM ALONE...DANG..!!!
