Steve Harvey has been back in the headlines over a memo sent to members of the staff of his "Steve Harvey" show. If you've missed it, the memo goes a little something like this...
"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,
Whoa! It must be really fun to be walking those hallways at work now, huh?
We've all worked for some tough bosses, but have you ever read something like that from someone who is supposed to lead and inspire his colleagues whose jobs depend on making the boss look good?
I'd find it difficult to look forward everyday to going to work for someone who has the audacity to be so arrogant.
Harvey has confirmed the letter is authentic, but offered no apology. Can you still watch anything that Harvey hosts now and feel good about him? Not me.
Here's the actual memo his staff received....
