Showdown! Steve Harvey Breaks Into Tears During Bizarre 40-Minute Meeting With Staff
Steve Harvey broke down in tears during a meeting with staff over his memo scandal in an incredibly tense 40-minute meeting today, RadarOnline.com has learned.
As RadarOnline.com reported, an outrageous all-hands memo from Harvey to his staff was leaked last night, painting the TV host as a finicky diva who doesn’t even want to be looked at the wrong way by his staff. According to an insider, the memo leak sent shockwaves throughout his Chicago offices.
“It blew up!” the source told RadarOnline.com.
Indeed, Harvey called an all-hands meeting before Thursday’s taping to discuss the incident.
During his nearly hour-long address, “he didn’t really apologize,” the insider said. “But you could tell his ego is bruised.”
“He actually started crying at one point,” the source said, but to some it seemed like just more show business from Harvey.
“It seemed so fake, like he literally looked into the lights to get himself crying,” the insider claimed.

“At the end, he was basically like, ‘I see it in a few people’s eyes. You can think what you think, but I am being genuine.’”
Still, some staffers weren’t buying it.
“People were just standing there with their arms crossed,” said the source.
Harvey did thank the staffers – most of whom have been fired ahead of the show’s move to L.A. – for serving him in Chicago for nearly five years.
“But at least half of it was about the memo,” the source said. “He told us that everyone had told him not to even mention it, but that he couldn’t help himself!”
The memo obtained by RadarOnline.com showed Harvey warning staff, "Do not approach me in the hallways," and threatening those who dared to pop into his office, "You will be removed!"
