How Steve Harvey Left His First Wife & Kids Homeless and Hungry

It’s ridiculous! And here’s something Tony Rock forgot to mention about Steve Harvey. His second wife was the mistress to his first wife, Marcia and he straight-up abandoned his first wife with three children! Chile, I have all the messy details!


Steve Harvey is one of the most successful stand-up comedians of all time, but for all of his professional achievements, his personal life has arguably been a little bumpier. The good news? After weathering the ups and downs of marriage and divorce, the 67-year-old radio host, game show host, talk show host and beauty pageant host has finally found his Mrs. Right. Here’s what we know about Steve Harvey’s wife and his previous marriages.

Steve Harvey’s time on daytime appears to be coming to an end. His syndicated talk show, Steve, will end its run in June, multiple outlets reported Friday.

The show, distributed by NBCUniversal Television, followed Harvey’s first foray into the format, Steve Harvey, which was produced in Chicago and began airing in 2012. It followed more in the mold of shows like Dr. Phil and won several Emmys in the Informative Talk Show category.

In 2017, Harvey relocated to Los Angeles to produce a new version of the show, now called Steve, with more creative control and a revamped format. The new incarnation focused more on comedy segments and celebrity guests.

According to Variety, the move angered NBCUniversal executives, as it cost the company its ownership stake in the show, and is the probable reason for its end. Steve’s producers are reportedly trying to shop the show to other outlets. Harvey will remain on the air in his longtime gig hosting Family Feud. Meanwhile, NBC-owned stations will fill Steve’s time slot with Kelly Clarkson’s new talk show.

Steve Harvey wasn’t always the successful comedian fans have grown to love – he had to make some tough choices along the way to get to where he is now.

One thing is for sure, the best-selling author knew he belonged on TV, but he just didn’t know how to actually get there.

Growing up, “I had a stuttering problem, and I was from the ‘hood.’ ” the Little Big Shots host tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. He was a 28-year-old college dropout who was working as an insurance salesman, but that didn’t stop him from trying standup for the first time.

“I had never even heard of a comedy club,” he said. “I didn’t even know they existed.”

Harvey won the $50 first prize during his first shot at performing, and he quit his job the next day. That decision did not go over well with his wife and the mother of his two daughters, Marcia.
