Steve Harvey is getting ready to leave Chicago for his new home in Los Angeles as he gets ready to start his new daytime show “Steve” but it doesn’t look like he is making friends on his way out.
An odd memo was published by Chicago blogger Robert Feder. The letter was apparently leaked by someone on Harvey’s staff and reads, “There will be no meetings in my dressing room. No stopping by or popping in. NO ONE.”
The letter also demands that employees must schedule an appointment to speak with him and calls for “all the ambushing to stop now.” It doesn’t end there. The letter also states, “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.”
“I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me,” he wrote. The letter ends by explaining that this is for “the good of my personal life and enjoyment.”
Harvey has not publicly commented on the memo. Apparently, the memo got out to on the final day of taping for “The Steve Harvey Show” but it was sent out to employees months ago before the start of this fifth and final season. That show is ending as Harvey gets ready for the premiere of his new show “Steve” on September 5. According to reports, there is speculation that an ex-staffer leaked the letter who was not invited to be part of the crew for his new show.
Harvey has a lot on his plate. In addition to the new “Steve” daytime show, he hosts ABC’s “Celebrity Family Feud,” NBC’s “Little big Shots,” and he is pegged for Fox’s “Showtime at the Apollo” revival.
The full memo is below:
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,
Eminem fires back at Machine Gun Kelly with “Killshot” diss track (listen here)
Eminem promised that he would fire back at Machine Gun Kelly and he came through on Friday with the NSFW tracked titled “Killshot.”
Your reply got the crowd yellin’ ‘Ooo’, so before you die let’s see who can out-petty who with your corny lines,” he raps. “I’m 45 and I’m still out-selling you.”
Their issues date back to 2012 when MGK tweeted that Eminem’s then-16-year-old daughter Hallie was “hot as (expletive).” MGK later said that his tweet resulted in him getting blackballed from the music industry.
The feud escalated when MGK responded in a diss track titled “Rap Devil,” days after Eminem mentioned him on the “Kamikaze” album.
We’ll see how MGK responds to this. Here is the “Killshot” track that was released today:
Norm Macdonald explains his recent #MeToo comments
Norm Macdonald is setting the record straight after the backlash he received for comments about the #MeToo movement.
Macdonald was on The View on Thursday and said that his comments about #MeToo were taken out of context. He also said that his comment about being glad that #MeToo slowing down was a reference to Chris Hardwick and that people should not automatically make a judgment on a he-said-she-said case. Macdonald acknowledged that if someone had accusations from “500 women” then “obviously the guy is guilty.”
He was also asked about his “Tonight Show” appearance being canceled in the wake of his comments. The full interview can be seen below.
