I saw this, and I LAUGHED OUT LOUD.
I get it. As a busy guy, I get it.
Think about it... Steve Harvey does a RADIO SHOW every morning, then he does 3 TV SHOWS. Steve Harvey might be busier than Ryan Seacrest, or any other TV celeb you can think of.
There is a significant amount of work that goes into a Radio Show and/or TV show. He sounds burnt out. It's so easy to think he sounds like he's not a people person. It's easy to think he is a jerk? That's not it. It sounds like he has NO PERSONAL time. If you're honest with yourself, you've felt this way at least once.
Thanks for reading this, and enjoy!
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,
