The “so-called” funnyman, Steve Harvey sent out a memo barring staff from approaching him on set of his daytime talk show. Now that its gone public, Harvey doesn’t care. Read on…
Steve Harvey, 60, issued a memo telling staffers they should not interact with him on set unless spoken to first. Steve is claiming that his staff took advantage of him by bringing their friends around to meet him and sign autographs. This isn’t the first time Harvey has come under fire.
Here is what Steve Harvey said:
“I could not find a way to walk from the stage to my dressing room, to sit in my makeup chair, to walk from my dressing room to the stage or to just sit and have lunch without somebody just walking in,” Harvey explained. “I’ve always had a policy where, you know, you can come and talk to me — so many people are great around here, but some of them just started taking advantage of it.”
He then gave some examples:
“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.’”
“Do not come to my dressing room unless invited. Do not open my dressing room door. IF YOU OPEN MY DOOR, EXPECT TO BE REMOVED. My security team will stop everyone from standing at my door who have the intent to see or speak to me… Do not wait in any hallway to speak to me. I hate being ambushed. Please make an appointment. I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me.”
Thoughts? Like we’ve said before, not ever star is that nice person you see on camera.
