Since When Is Steve Harvey A Relationship Expert?

If Steve Harvey can get millions of women to buy his book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like  a Man“, then I really don’t see why I shouldn’t write one entitled, “Spend $24.95 So I Can Tell You Shit You Should Already Know”! Since when is Steve Harvey a relationship expert? Just a few years ago he was hanging out with Cedric the Entertainer & Lovita Alizay Jenkins Robinson and also spending time being a “King of Comedy”. So now all of a sudden he’s an expert in telling women what they should know. I’d be willing to give him half a serious listen, if he was writing a book geared towards men & telling them how they should treat women, considering that he’s a man. I have a hard time buying his newly created ‘relationship expert’ title.

So today, he was on Oprah for the 2nd time, peddling his ideologies.  I swear they must have found the dumbest women in the world to Skype in on the show. First you have a group of single black women in  NYC, asking where to find a good man? All Steve Harvey could say was that maybe their success is intimidating to men. I’m so tired of hearing that excuse when it comes to the women being successful. I’m not sure what type of man who would be intimidated by a successful woman. I haven’t met one as of yet.

Then there’s the 52 yr old woman, who feels obligated to have sex with a man, just because he took her out & bought her a few drinks. Hmmm. How can I say this. Don’t use the drinks as an excuse for why you want to have sex with him, maybe you’re just a whore, don’t blame it on the alcohol or obligation that he’s spent money on you  on the first date. I mean seriously, this woman is 52 yrs old, asking a dumb ass question. No wonder the wrinkled bag is single.

The piece de resistance was a woman from the DC area, who says she planned on not having sex until marriage, but wanted to know if oral sex was excluded from the 90 days of no sex Zoot Suit Harvey recommends. But wait. She also says it’s her religious beliefs that won’t allow her to have sex, but she feels that she can have oral, just as long as she’s on the receiving end & not giving! Yes, men, she does not reciprocate!  I’d like to know what church this heifer attends, and I’d hope her congregation did not see her on Oprah, putting her business out on front street. Also, I’d like to meet the men who have been ok with this, so I can pat them on the back myself.  If you’re going to remain a virgin until marriage, more power to you, but last time I checked, oral sex, was a form of sex. But what do I know, I’m not a sex or relationship expert (LMAO!).

Anyways, I’m sure Steve Harvey has a new fan base. He’s gotten rid of the Zoot suits, sprayed on flat-top, crocodile shoes, gained a few muscles & has appeared on Oprah twice. So now, his fan base includes more of those who lack melanin and who think Oprah is god(dess). I guess anyone nowadays can brand & market themselves as relationship experts. I wonder between which marriage he gained his expertise from? #1? #2? or #3, wh0 was actually the mistress of his 2nd marriage. How about a book about that Steve?

    I was just discussing this on Twitter with my fellow blogger and TweetTreat, Butta of Soulbounce.
    Me thinks I shall blog it out. 🙂

      Oh, I have to read that one! Yes, I was talking to Butta about it as well…I just refuse to accept his new ‘expert’ status he’s thrown upon us.

    *SNAP* for real! I agree with you Fungke and I’m willing to bet he didn’t even “write” half the content of that book. What really sucks is that these self proclaimed experts use their D-list status to milk the pockets of these impressionable hopeless romantics by giving them aimless advice as though there is a generic formula to matters of the heart, WHICH totally undermines the hardwork and scholarship of ACTUAL experts out there working hard to give real advice about REAL issues… sigh… This clearly upsets me LOL

    That pic is a bit scary and so is the book. Everytime I see the mid-age white ladies in Target clammoring for their copy, I pray to God to remove this madness from my spirit. I cant even wrap my head around why SH is a credible expert. He told some jokes and had some shows. He is also recently divorced. Why would I want his advice?

      Exactly! Ohsoluvlee1 (the comment below yours) broke it down, in regards to his new wife, who’s from her area.

    Let me give you the real low down on Steve…
    He just left his wifey of umpteen years a few years back to marry this gold diggin dope boy chaser from Memphis. This woman has dated everybody from memphis who had money from the dope boys to doctors to preachers she didnt discriminate. Then she convinced Steve’s dumbass to marry her. He ought to be writing a book called how I got got by a dope ho…
    He is obviously experiencing Tavis Smiley syndrome and thinks he can tell everyone else how to run their lives now.

      Aha!! You’re shedding more light on Mr. Harvey. I definitely think that title is more apropos for his next book..lol

    Man, I caught the beginning of that show, and only made it up to the Black women in NY part. Man, I wish hed shut up. However, I just might watch the remainder of the show later tonight, just so I can see that chickie from DC. Its ok (somewhat) to be sexually selfish, just dont use religon to justify it, lol.

      That’s where I came in on the show. Supposedly before that, women were going over their ‘lists’? I can only imagine what that included.
      Her views are so misconstrued, it’s ridiculous. Her pastor should be embarrassed to have her as part of the congregation lol

    um, i just side-eyed so hard, i knocked myself into a mini-coma. i therefore have the energy to say only this: shut up, stupid title of even stupider [sic] book. although, i should give mr. harvey reluctant props for pulling off this masterful coup. talking ish + makeover + winning over auntie O = winning the hearts [and easily accessing the wallets] of the millions of desperate people out there. that, right there, is pure genius! well played, harvey. well played.

    I saw this bs this morning on cnn.com and was blown. How the heck can he be giving away all our secrets lol…..but nah on the real most women already know what they getting into when they do get with a messed up guy so I have no sympathy and the fact that Steve Harvey is telling them all this stuff in a book is ludacris, cuz umm THEY ALREADY KNOW, THEY JUST DONT WANNA ACCEPT IT. I have lost respect for Steve now, I’d rather him say – ‘yeah I just put the book out there to make some money, not that I need it, but I like padding my bank account cuz I know I have a large female fanbase and I might as well take advantage of them like them bum azz niccas they be dating do too’ lol…………damn I wish Bernie Mac was still here.

    The sad part is that women will buy this books by the dozens (some to drool over this very pic….ugh!) to get information that I’m amazed is news. You would think Mr. Harvey just told us that Jesus was the Messiah and that E=mc2….geez!

    Damn girl..you took ALL of the words right out of my mouth..lol. You left me speechless..lol
    But I’m with you on the part that Steve needs to write a damn book about all of the fucked up shit he has done in his past 2 marriages. I’m pretty sure his 3rd(current) marriage isn’t that great either.
    What kind of man leaves his wife for his mistress then has the audacity to suddenly start giving women “relationship advice”. And to top it all off, one of his ex-wives said that Steve not only cheated on her, but he beat her ass too! This dude is horrible.
    We haven’t seen the side of Steve that his ex-wives have mentioned. But I believe everything they have said about him.

      Steve Harvey is an opportunist, plain & simple. He can stick his ‘strawberry letters’ up his ass..for all I care.

    I saw him on Oprah. He’s obnoxious and she’s obnoxious. I’m about tired of Oprah. I’m gonna need her to retire this show soon just lay in the cut. She loves to make overrated shit even more overrated. Uggggggghhhhhh. I still haven’t forgiven her for her show on “hip-hop.” Also, this one local news anchor played Steve Harvey out this morning. He was like, he’ll be on Oprah dispensing his beliefs on relationships and men, I don’t share his views but… lol. I was like, why didn’t Stan Stovall (the anchor) just say I’m not buying into his bullshit?

    Did Steve Harvey photoshop his bigass head on some other Negroes body? Ok, my bad, now I wished I saw the episode of Oprah you wrote about because I sure as hell could have used a good laugh at the expense of some dumb chick. The sad thing is that the women you spoke of are the one’s who dog the silly broads on Maury. Well, err, umm, these heffas ain’t too different in my book.
    How you gon’ be born again, not give up the coochie but yet put it in niggas faces, but refuse to suck dick?
    BTW: I’m going to blast that chick who left that comment on my blog last night. She is going to be the subject of Blog Wars pt.2.

      People are always looking for an easy solution to their problems. That’s why it’s a best seller. They’d rather listen to someone tell them what to do, what should be done, than to figure it out for themselves.

    I haven’t seen the Oprah interview, as I commonly avoid undercover lesbo man hater propaganda talk shows, but I believe that Steve’s picture is marketing Genius. How better to attract white women than to put a “Mandigo been moving cotton bails all day and want to rut on a white woman” picture like that up. I mean come on, black women want to see Boris Kodjo without a shirt, they don’t have fantasies about having animal sex with slaves, like white women on Oprah obviously do.
    Every time I look at that picture I can’t help but notice that his stomach looks like my ex’s two weeks after she had my daughter, who told him to do a shirtless picture.
    I guess this is what you have to do when they close your radio show in Los Angeles. I think I would have respected him more if he would have came out with the Steve Harvey Grill….. I sure would like Bernie Mac’s opinion on all this……..

    Steve Harvey needs to stick to telling jokes

    Obviously, Steve is looking for new ways to supplement the income… and it’s working. In this culture that is fixated on the ‘cult of personality’, him successfully being able to peddle this advise to millions suggest less about Steve Harvey than it doesn’t our culture/people i think.
    He is doing what a wise man does, observing the situation and taking advantage of it. His advise may be weak, but it’s up the the reader to discern that. Would it be better to prohibit him and others celebrities from writing about things they know not? I doubt it.
    By the way, just in case anyone is wondering – I wouldn’t read the book if it was given to me, and I don’t even think the brother is funny. He’s a non-factor to me.
    Good post!
    Namaste!

    I take offense at the comment about the 52 year old woman being a whore just because she has sex with some guy who took her out. Women have needs too! She may have been “in need”! Stop labeling women as whores just because they want sex! At her age the pickings may be slim and her libido on “fire”.

  27. January 10, 2010 - Reply

    She wasn't just having sex with 'some' guy who took her out..she was having sex with every man who took her out…sure, if you have needs, then find someone to fulfill those needs…sleeping around with multiple partners, just b/c you feel obligated to it (which is what she said she felt, since they took her out for dinner) is not only unhealthy mentally, but also phsyically.
