If you’re a fan of The Steve Harvey Show you can look forward to new changes coming this fall when his TV show moves from Chi-town to Los Angeles. A memo, rumored to be leaked by a former staff member who wasn’t invited to work on the new L.A. based show, has many wondering if Steve Harvey asked any of his current staffers to join him in the cross-country move.
Good morning, everyone. Welcome back.
I’d like you all to review and adhere to the following notes and rules for Season 5 of my talk show.
There will be no meetings in my dressing room. No stopping by or popping in. NO ONE.
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.
I want all the ambushing to stop now. That includes TV staff.
You must schedule an appointment.
I have been taken advantage of by my lenient policy in the past. This ends now. NO MORE.
Do not approach me while I’m in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly. Either knock or use the doorbell.
I am seeking more free time for me throughout the day.
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.
If you’re reading this, yes, I mean you.
Everyone, do not take offense to the new way of doing business. It is for the good of my personal life and enjoyment.
Thank you all,
It’s reported that Harvey will now have an ownership stake and control over the production of his show. Now that he’ll be based in L.A. viewers can expect to see more celebrity guests given the talent pool is much bigger than Chicago’s.
Do you think Steve’s approach in the memo was too harsh or strictly business? Tell us what you think below.
