When I saw this video of Steve Harvey's birthday tribute from his wife and kids making its rounds on Facebook, like 13 million other people I stopped and watched.
Touching stuff, isn't it? I even had to blink back a few tears. That said, sentimental or not, something just didn't sit right with me about this. I found it odd that all seven of the children had no issues with Marjorie referring to herself as their mother even though only three of the seven are Marjorie's biological kids. Just as strange, Marjorie's children, none of whom were fathered by Steve, all call the comedian "dad" while at least one of those three—Marjorie's oldest son—has taken on the Harvey last name. What were the odds of Steve's two ex-wives and Marjorie's two ex-husbands ALL walking away from their children and parental rights? Later that evening, because that "hmmm" feeling wasn't dissipating, I did a little background snooping on Steve & Marjorie.
Steve's first wife, Marcia, is impossible to find information about, but they were married for 14 years (1980-1994.) What are the odds of a woman walking away from the three children she bore Harvey after spending 14 YEARS raising them? I'm guessing the odds aren't in Steve & Marjorie's favor.
Then there is wife #2, Mary. Check out this video she posted on YouTube:
And Steve's rebuttal:
Then I see Mary was arrested in 2013. Here's why:
First off, this poor woman obviously wants her son back. My best educated guess (having seen this go down before) is Steve won't budge because of control issues. By retaining full custody of his son, he doesn't have to pay Mary a damn dime, thereby controlling her and their child. Never mind that this woman's son has been ripped away, never mind that she gave up 16 years of her life on his fool father & his ugly ass mustache. Mary has become throwaway garbage because she can't afford a lawyer to go against Steve Harvey's TEAM of lawyers.
I used to find Steve Harvey humorous; now I'm boycotting anything he has his hand in. Ditto that sentiment for Marjorie Harvey. (Not that she did anything noteworthy to begin with; judging from her Instagram she spends her days taking vanity portraits of herself and star-fucking anyone she can take a selfie with.)
Here's the thing, Steve: it's bad enough that you treat women like disposable diapers, but it is beyond the pale when you actively and aggressively keep those women separated from their children. I would love to see a bitch sit up there on television talking about she's the mother of MY children... it wouldn't end pretty. And to Marjorie's children who turned their backs on their real fathers? Karma's a bitch. Remember that when your children turn their backs on you.
No matter WHAT happens in this world your real mother is your real mother and your real father is your real father. I'm not in any way dissing stepparents because in many cases they are more active in their stepkids' lives than biological parents. Kudos to them for stepping up to the plate! But Steve and the current Mrs. Harvey aren't stepping up to shit; they are stepping ON real people they don't find useful anymore.
