[UPDATE:] Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier spoke with Steve Harvey about the leaked letter demanding employees not to approach him. According to Steve, he was sick of being stuck in his dressing room, which he calls “prison.” The talk show host revealed to Frazier that he didn’t “want to be in prison anymore where I had to be in this little room scared to go out.”
Steve Harvey seems like a pretty approachable guy, right?! Too bad he doesn’t want to be approached.
An old letter has been leaked from Harvey to his old staff in Chicago, listing some stern rules, specifically, pertaining to his personal space.
Blogger Robert Feder got his hands on Harvey’s letter, which HipHollywood can confirm is more than a year old. Feder released the memo in it’s entirety and here are some of the requests.
1. “Do not come to my dressing room unless invited.” 2. “Do not approach me while I’m in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly.” 3. “You must schedule an appointment.” 4. “I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me.”
The note also suggested that these rules were so that he can seek “more free time for me throughout the day.”
Harvey has not responded to the leaked memo, but if we know Steve, he will be speaking out in no time.
The talk show host, by the way, is in the process of moving his daytime talk show from Chicago to Los Angeles.
Read the full letter 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,
Could There Be A “Black Panther” and “Luke Cage” Crossover In The Works?
With all the hype over Black Panther (and it breaking box office records) fans are craving more of the Marvel superhero and crafting ways to intertwine him across the MCU. One theory is to have T’Challa and Luke Cage on screen together for an epic crossover episode during Cage’s sophomore season on Netflix.
The idea isn’t farfetched to Luke Cage star Simone Missick.
“I would love that,” Missick who plays Misty Knight told HipHollywood. “I mean doesn’t Black Panther come to New York, Misty Knight could travel to Wakanda. Maybe she takes a vacation and winds up in Wakanda.”
But while Missick was only speaking hypothetically, she said LC showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and BP director Ryan Coogler are good pals so it’s not out of the question. “They already know each other. Cheo is working on Creed 2 writing the script and that was Ryan’s movie, so that would be awesome.”
Meanwhile when asked about a Black Panther and Luke Cage meeting on screen, Coker was enthusiastic. “I would love that, I really would!,” he told Comicbook.com. “I mean, because it would be, like, OK. T’Challa could definitely get on Pop’s free haircut list.”
In an interview with BET, Coogler was asked about three MCU characters coming together – Blade, T’Challa, and Luke Cage.
“I don’t control that stuff. I know that stuff’s all complicated. I wish Kevin [Feige] was here to see if you could talk to him, because he knows more about it. But I think it would be awesome. I loved those characters. [Blade] paved the way for what we’re doing now…And what Cheo [Hodari Coker] is doing with Netflix is just incredible, putting African-American culture on the screen like that and seeing people react to it that aren’t from that culture…the same way they react to a black basketball player or a black musician. It works for film, too. It’s universal.”
