Do Not Approach Steve Harvey, OR ELSE!

If you want to work with Steve Harvey on his talk show, or Family Feud, you’re going to have to follow the rules.

An email that was allegedly sent to the staff of The Steve Harvey Show was published online this morning.  The memo surprisingly reveals the “comedian” doesn’t have the time or patience to socialize with other people who aren’t as important as he is.

According to, the memo reads in part:

“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.

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.

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.”

It seems the changes are coming ahead of his talk show moving from Chicago to Los Angeles.  When taping continues the show will just be called Steve.  Maybe they could just call it “Rude.”

Sorry, never thought you were funny, and don’t think I’ll be watching your new show.
