No one really knew to what extent Steve Harvey suffered after the December 20 Miss Universe Pageant, when the host botched the name of the winner and went on to live in meme infamy. Well, apparently becoming a national punch line really takes its toll.
In a segment for The Steve Harvey Show scheduled to air Monday, Harvey opens up about the incident and its aftermath, saying that it caused him a lot of sleepless nights. “I didn’t do any interviews until I could talk to the two people who were affected the most, Pia and Ariadna,” Harvey said. “No matter how tough it was for me, I can’t imagine how it was for these two women. This finally gives me a chance to have a moment of closure.”
But it’s only when he begins talking about the support he received from his wife that Harvey really loses it. “You gotta have somebody with you,” he said as he fought back tears.
The clip is just a tease of what promises to be an emotional couple of episodes, as Harvey will be joined by Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach. Watch above.
