Steve Harvey Defends Staff Letter: ‘I Didn’t Want to Be In This Prison Anymore’

steve harvey responds staff letter

Steve Harvey is finally responding to the email he sent to his staff of his talk show, asking them not to approach him.

In the leaked memo, Steve told everyone to leave him TF alone. Don’t open his dressing room door, don’t speak to him directly, don’t stop him in the hallway, and on and on.

staff letter

He’s finally defended the letter in an interview with Entertainment Tonight:

“Look, man, I’m in my makeup chair, they walk in the room. I’m having lunch, they walk in, they don’t knock. I’m in the hallway, I’m getting ambushed by people with friends that come to the show and having me sign this and do this. I just said, ‘Wait a minute.’ And in hindsight, I probably should’ve handled it a little bit differently.”

He said all he’s asking for is respect for his personal space.

“If you come out your house, you don’t want anybody on your porch waiting on you. You walk to your car, you don’t want people bothering you on your way to your car. Everybody wants the freedom to be able to move around,”

He then compared his dressing room to a prison.

“I just didn’t want to be in this prison anymore where I had to be in this little room, scared to go out and take a breath of fresh air without somebody approaching me, so I wrote the letter. I don’t apologize about the letter, but it’s kind of crazy what people who took this thing and ran, man.”


  1. Why Steve on the verge of a nervous breakdown?
    Why Steve on the verge of a divorce?
    Why Steve in over his head?
    Why Steve wish he could go into seclusion, but still be famous?

    • Good enough for that coondog steve…and you can add these other whys to the list too.

      Why haven’t steve havery paid his second ex-wife what’s rightfully her?

      Why haven’t steve let his ex-wife see her own son in over 6 years, even though they both have joint custody?

      Why did steve commit forgery and fraud in his divorce proceedings?

      • If she has joint custody he could not prevent her from seeing their child. Something’s not right with your premise.

        • Well it happened, according to the Mother. Anything can happen here in America. Wynton’s mother side of his family will speak out soon.

      • His ex wife can get a job if she is poor, that’s called equality. Black sons need to be with dad, you BW turn black boys int flaming homosexuals and you know it. More Steve Harveys raising sons and the next generation of BW may have some decent men to choose from instead of an army of RuPauls!!!!

        • I don’t have a problem with sons staying with their dads, but it’s not fair to infringe on anybody rights…man or woman. Also, Mary harvey was right there working with steve when he didn’t have nothing; Sleeping in cars and shit. She deserves her half out of the 17 years they’ve been married. I mean come on, She help build this man’s brand. She put her life and career behind, so steve can get ahead. So she deserves what’s rightfully hers…which she will get in due time.

        • So you think it is women and not grown ass men coming out of prison and so forth raping these little boys turning them into fags, really?

  2. He’s feeling pressure from somewhere. He knows people get killed or have their reputations destroyed. He knows he’s on the crosshairs of nefarious folks and is suffocating. He’s gone into a rebellion mode and doing his thing.
