Who Is Steve Harvey's Wife? 7 New Details On Marjorie Harvey

Who is Steve Harvey's wife? While we’re all familiar with Steve Harvey as a stand-up comedian, newest host of Family Feud, and also a host of his own talk show, we may also recall his epic screw up at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant. But even though we might be interested in the life of this funny guy, even more interesting is his wife, Marjorie Harvey (née Bridges).

The two have been married since 2007, but what do we really know about this beauty? Here are 7 things everyone should know about Marjorie Harvey.

1. She’s been married twice before.

In fact, both she and Steve have been married twice before they said “I do.” Her first husband is in jail on drug-related charges, serving a life sentence. Her second husband was also arrested on drug charges. It's safe to say she upgraded when she married Steve.

2. They’ve known each other since the 90s.

The two met when she walked into the Memphis Comedy Club where Steve was performing a set. According to him, it was love at first sight. He announced on stage, “I don’t know who you are, but I’m going to marry you.”

But things weren’t always so smooth for the couple. When the two met, he was not yet settled in life, in both his career and financially. “Before a man can be of use to a woman... he’s got to know who he is, what he does, and how much he’s going to make,” he said.

Everything changed when he was hired for The Steve Harvey Show, allowing him to finally have some stability. Though the two were in an on-again/off-again relationship, they married in 2007.

3. They have a big blended family.

Marjorie has three children from her previous marriages: Morgan, Jason, and Lorie. Steve has four children from his. The two joined forces to create a blended family that worked for everyone.

In an interview with People Magazine, Marjorie said, “When you’re dealing with a blended family, everyone is coming from a place of broken. We knew this was right. But I just told them, ‘Everyone is included. Everyone has access to their parents. Whatever you didn’t have before, don’t let that interfere with what you can have now.'”

4. She’s a fashionista.

Marjorie has her very own fashion blog called The Lady Loves Couture, where she discusses fashion and etiquette. According to the website's bio, “the site chronicles her exciting fashion excursions as well as provides exclusive tips for living lavishly on any budget.” The site also features an “under $100” section, giving readers a look into where to shop on a budget.

In addition to her blog, she also runs her own online shopping businesses: Marjorie Harvey Handbags and Marjorie Harvey’s Closet.

5. She dropped out of college.

Though not much is known about the specifics, Marjorie went to the University of Memphis, dropping out due to poor grades. But that hasn’t stopped her from being successful.

6. She made all her money herself.

Some might think she gained success through Steve, but that’s simply not true. She has built her net worth from her business ventures. And we all love a successful, go-getting woman who doesn’t rely on men for finances.

7. Steve credits Marjorie with changing his life.

When the two reunited before marrying in 2007, Steve called it a “second chance… It was like being reborn. I messed up so many times in my life. She made all the difference. When you’re happy at home, you can make a lot of things happen.”
