One of the couples who got married are Crystal Morrison and Brandin Graham.  According to the couple:

“My husband and I just got married on the Steve Harvey show!  We talk about how we waited until we got married to have sex. I think its an interesting topic especially for young women to know that they don’t have to give up the cookie to find a good man.”

It was on November 15, 2006 when Brandin and Crystal started dating then seven years after, Brandin proposed.

Congrats to the newlyweds!

 Steve Harvey and President Obama

There are some people who do not believe that dreams can come true but not for Steve Harvey because his dream of interviewing President Obama has finally came true.  Harvey, a popular talk show host, did not discuss more on political controversies but rather he sees to it that his interview with the president is done in a light mode.  They discussed about the family’s holiday plans, fatherhood and others.  According to Harvey:

“Sitting down with the President is something I’ve always dreamt of doing, and I am honored to have the opportunity.”

“I’m grateful to President Obama for welcoming me and I’m thrilled to share this experience with all my viewers.”

When he was interviewed with NBC News, he revealed:

“I’m just a little boy from Welch, West Virginia that’s talking to the President of the United States. The greatest moment in that interview for me was when he was talking about his grandmother, who he misses. She passed in her eighties and my mom passed in her eighties and I said to the President, ‘I heard a rumor that your grandmother and my mother have met and that they are on the front row watching us right now.’ That was a really cool moment between me and the President and it meant a lot to him too so I felt pretty good about that.”

“I’ve met him before but this interview is a little different, you know. I think I talked to him the way most people don’t talk to the President. I told him I wanted a man-on-man interview. I don’t care about the politics, it’s not important to me. Look, he’s a great guy. There is a section of people that don’t agree with what he does, and then there are those of us that get it so I don’t have to go into that again. I said, let’s talk about family, let’s talk about the wives, let’s talk about Christmas, let’s talk about those girls, we’ve got girls the same age, and how he felt about fatherhood. It was pretty good.”

Isn’t it a great experience?

Porsha-Stewart--Steve-Harvey

Even if her divorce papers were not yet finalized, the star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta has already begun dating.  Porsha Stewart recently dropped by at The Steve Harvey Show in order to find her new date.  Steve, who is a great matchmaker, provided Porsha with three choices:  Le-Shawn, Ross and Kinyumba.  Each of these guys revealed some details about themselves. In order to make the right decision, Steve provided Porsha with some hints with regards to choosing the appropriate guy.

Finally, Porsha made a decision and decided to select Kinyumba.  After posting a picture of the two, Urban Diaries wrote:

Porsha-Stewart-Kinyumba

“@porshadstewart looks gorgeous and happy along side Kinyumba a young gentleman that she chose on @iamsteveharveytv Matchmaker segment. She had a choice of three men Ross Kinyumba and Le-Shawn. Porsha and Kinyumba went on their first date to Del Frisco’s. They seem to be enjoying each others time and had nothing but good things to say, but Mr. Harvey told her to take things slow and that is what she will do. He knows a thing or two about relationships and men. His two best sellers reinsures that. Match made in heaven or not?”

Is Porsha ready to enter into a new relationship?

Steve

Steve Harvey, the famous TV personality and comedian, was honored at the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  He wore a yellow suit while receiving his star.  The host of Family Feud was joined by his friends, Ellen Degeneres and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as his fans.  He also thanked Marjorie, his wife, and their children for their endless support.

DeGeneres made a joke and said, “When they asked me to come and do this today, I didn’t have to think – I said yes right away, then I realised that I wasn’t getting paid and I tried to back out, but I couldn’t, it was too late. So I’m here.”

Harvey was very happy with this recognition.  He said: “People call it luck, but what luck actually is – luck is when hard work runs up into opportunity and people describe it as luck. I do work very hard, I kid you not – but I’m also a recipient of a lot of grace and mercy.”

Congrats Steve Harvey!

Who can tell that Steve Harvey’s son, Wynton is a talented photographer?

Steve Harvey was surprised by the special phone call that he receives during his 56th birthday, yesterday.  The producers of his talk show are the ones who staged the surprise.  The man on the phone wishes a happy birthday to Steve and said:

“I just have one question, do you still love me, baby?”

Steve instantly cried as he hears the voice on the phone.  His tears became unmanageable.

Later on Steve made an explanation:

“I was 26 years old, struggling. I didn’t have nothing and these people owned a furniture store in Cleveland.  They took me in and gave me a contract with my little carpet cleaning company. When I became a comedian at 27, I didn’t have money to travel. They gave me an account at their travel agency and I ran up a bill that was $11,000 just traveling and try to make it. Those people right there, they helped me out!”
