Steve Harvey Doesn’t Want His Staff To Approach Him
We’ve all had those days at work when you don’t feel like dealing with your coworkers. But, Steve Harvey allegedly straight up told his talk show staff not to approach him. Point blank. Period.
In a scathing blog post written by Chicagoan Robert Feder, he dragged Harvey, who is taking his talk show to Los Angeles for greener pastures leaving the majority of his 80 employees without a job.
Radar Online reports:
He didn’t offer interviews to many people who have been with him since beginning, and hurt lots of people who would move on their own to L.A. to be part of the new show.
Steve never even addressed the staff about it. He never said a word about them all losing their jobs.
Feder went on to post a memo that Steve Harvey allegedly sent his staff at the beginning of the current season.
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,
