Steve Harvey Addresses Rumors He’s Leaving Wife For Kris Jenner, Reacts To Talk Show Being Replaced By Kelly Clarkson By Some Affiliates: This Is NBC’s Decision
As Steve Harvey collects checks from “Family Feud,” his talk show “STEVE,” and his morning radio show, he talks to the AJC about persistent rumors that have plagued him recently. Including the rumor about him leaving his wife of more than 10 years, Marjorie, for Kris Jenner, with a rumored payout of $400 million,
My wife came to me and said, ‘Do we have $400 million?’ Nah. Not yet.
His thoughts on the rumors,
I’m sick of it. They act like I don’t have family. They act like my kids can’t read. They don’t care. They just go out to destroy people with no facts behind it.
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reported the comedian’s second talk show “STEVE” was not being cancelled in lieu of conflicting reports that Kelly Clarkson’s new talk show would be considered the new lead-in for Ellen DeGeneres show, essentially replacing Harvey’s time slot.
The grandfather of five spoke about the possibility of is show ending,
I’ve always been an optimistic person. This is NBC’s decision… I don’t own any TV networks but I’m not a grudge type of person. I happen to be a talent. I think people recognize that. Whatever happens with the show moving forward, I’ll be just fine.
Although “STEVE” is reportedly up 27% for their second season, if the show were to be booted out by Kelly Clarkson, Harvey’s production will still be able to shop his show around to other stations in affected markets like Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco and D.C.
