Steve Harvey got very emotional when the producers of his show gave him a surprise for his birthday.
Happy birthday, Steve Harvey! The comedian-turned-TV host burst into tears when a mystery guest from Orlando called into the show. Initially, Steve was not thrilled at the news that he was getting surprise, but that all changed when he found out what it was.
The first thing the guest, Rich, said to Steve was, “I just have one question, do you still love me, baby?”
At first Steve was so overcome with emotion that he couldn’t speak. Eventually, he got himself together; through the tears, Steve explained that their bond went back 30 years to the days when he was still trying to figure out what he wanted to do with his life.
"I was 26 years old, struggling. I didn’t have nothing and these people owned a furniture store in Cleveland. They took me in and gave me a contract with my little carpet cleaning company," Steve shared.
But that’s not all that Rich and his wife did for Steve. "When I became a comedian at 27, I didn’t have money to travel. They gave me an account at their travel agency," said Steve. "Man, I ran up a bill like $11,000 just traveling and try to make it."
He added, "Them people right there, they helped me out!"
Before Steve’s friends signed off, he pledged to fly them to Chicago for the show and to spend time with him because Steve had been searching for them for years.
