Steve Harvey Regrets His Choice of Words with Mo'nique


Last week Steve Harvey told comedian Mo'Nique that she owed it to her family to choose money over her integrity in a discussion about her being blackballed from the filmmaking industry [click here if you missed that].

Steve clarifies his remarks...
 
Steve Harvey tells People Magazine
“I take full responsibility for it, it came out my mouth, so I can’t say that I didn’t say it. But to people that really know me, I have lived my whole life as a man of integrity. So when I was referring to ‘integrity’ in that interview, I was talking about the method in which things were being done, and that is all it was.”
“I never questioned anybody’s principles or anybody’s causes. I was merely questioning, for the 50-minute interview, the method that she chose going about doing it — and I regret that looking back at it now, because that was a bad choice of words.”
“I shouted out and it happened, I regret it, but I want young people, the kids that come to my camps, the young people that I mentor, the fans that really respect me, to know to just charge that one to my head and not to my heart. Because in my heart, that is not what I have asked anyone to do. I have lived my whole life as a man of integrity, and I will stand on that, but I was really just talking about the method that they went about doing what they did, and that was it.”

I heard what was said and knew what he meant. Monique will take you is hard to deal with, but she knew what he meant also.

STEVE HARVEY, MENT JUST WHAT HE SAID. HE THREW HIS INTEGRITY OUT THE WAY, WHEN HE TRIED TO UNDER BID BERNIE MAC ON THE OCEANS ELEVEN MOVIE DEAL AND LETS NOT FORGET HOW HE TREATED HIS EX-WIFE MARY OR HIS EMPLOYEES FROM HIS SHOW IN CHICAGO.

He meant exactly what he said. I knew he lacked integrity after that standup where he talked about how he would act like a monkey for 4 mil.

Steve said what he meant. Had he not received backlash he wouldn't be clarifying anything. Steve need to go back to the big house and wash Massa feet.

Steve has to keep the money pouring in for Marjorie because when he worked comedy clubs she didn't want him. She comes at a high price. Steve is typical of all fraternity knee grows who sell out their race just so that a few of the "bruhs" move up. They only help their inner circle of masons and frats and to hell with dignity. I do think Steve was trying to rope Monique back in to the stable, pop her hand, and tell her to be good. Monique went to his show to get revenge because she is so mad the Black Boule treated her like crap that she has a vendetta. However, she's wasting energy. MOVE ON AND LIVE. Vengeance is the Lord's.

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. He said exactly what he meant.
