Steve Harvey: His New Wife is the Woman Who Changed His Life


Steve Harvey: His New Wife Is the Woman That Changed His Life
Steve Harvey
is a changed man – and that's largely due to the new lady in his life.

But when it comes to his third wife, Marjorie Bridges Harvey, whom he married in June 2007, she's not new at all. The pair met 17 years ago and dated briefly. And although the popular comedian, top-rated radio personality and best-selling author first saw the hazel-eyed beauty during a comedy club appearance in Memphis, where he declared that she would be his wife, both parties went on to build separate families.

But they didn't live happily ever after with their respective former spouses.

Steve and Marjorie open up to best-selling author Denene Milner about their rekindled love and newfound happiness in the December edition of Essence magazine, which officially arrives on newsstands Nov. 12.

"You're looking at two people who were messing up for real and making bad decisions without conferring with God," he shared. "But the fact that you can mess up that many times and still come out okay is a testament to just the grace and mercy of God, man. He took us all the way around the block, halfway around the world, and we got back to each other." The missus, who has three children from her previous marriage, told a candid story about how one of 'The Original Kings of Comedy' almost let her slip through his fingers after reconnecting; one night, he accepted a phone call from another woman in front of her.

"I was just at a point where I was like, 'If what you want is the same thing as what I want, then great. But if it's not, it doesn't make you wrong and me right or vice versa. It just means we're not in the same place,'" she recalled. "What I'm not going to do is sit here and be in something where I'm not happy and not getting what I want. I wasn't afraid to walk away."

Harvey snapped into shape in short order. He made a commitment and rose to the occasion.

Two years later, the two are still going strong.

"I mean, there's not two days that go by when one of us doesn't look at the other and say, 'Man, you're the best thing that ever happened to me in my entire life,'" he said.
