I’ve always liked Steve Harvey – he seems like a nice and sincere person who has ground his way to the top of his field.
My impression is that he doesn’t act like many other Hollywood jerks – it was a very sad day indeed when Harvey was fired from his long-running NBC daytime talk show “Steve”, which he had hosted since 2012.
Like a great comedian, Steve Harvey has blessed us with a lot of laughs and smiles over the years. His humor and common sense approach to life are much-needed, especially in a world that can be overtly cruel and depressing.
But Steve Harvey is not all laughter and jokes. In fact, he also has a deeper, personal side that many haven’t seen…
Like all people, Steve has his flaws and secrets, something that became very obvious when he invited his wife to the ”Steve Harvey Show”.
There, the famous host revealed something that made his beloved wife burst into tears …
Steve Harvey was born in 1957 in Welch, West Virginia. At birth, he was given his first name – but it wasn’t Steve. No, his parents named their boy Broderick, after the actor Broderick Crawford in the TV series Highway Patrol. Despite that, he has always gone by the name Steve.
His father, Jesse Harvey, was a coal miner and his mom, Eloise, worked at a Sunday school. After a few years living in West Virginia, the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio. This is where Steve Harvey went to high school and the first known pictures of him emerged.
