Mary went on to say that she was speaking for the voiceless women out there. It, according to her, is time that SOMEONE spoke for them. In her world, no such person has ever stood up & attempted to be the mouthpiece for women. For her son's sake, as Mary went on to say, she needed to speak up because he looks to his father to be his example & basically...dude ain't cuttin' the mustard. Her awfully personal story, though not uncommon, just wasn't ringing clearly as a community issue. I waited with baited breath for her to get to the
I'm not into second guessing another woman's hardships but I have to say that as I listened, I found some holes in her story. I don't dare go so far as to say that Steve Harvey, with or without his current wife as his co-conspirator, didn't do her dirty. The ins & outs of their relationship are not my business though they've been made public by Mary's YouTube rants. It is hardly a stretch that Steve Harvey was or is pimpalicious wit' his. Why? Because he's a man...& with money. Steve Harvey, without money, couldn't possibly pull more than 1 woman to lay next to his jowls, steam clean his zoot suits, & work at his English Language Butcher Shop. Hell, the very idea that Nephew Tommy could ever be found on your sofa or at your dinner table is enough to avoid ANYONE with the initials S.H. Alas, monied Steve was out here, so he confirms & the stories go, slayin' these garden tools, as research for his relationship books. I mean, how can you possibly SAY your self help book to your writer if you haven't actually lived these follies you warn women against? Steve's womanizing was a public service. How did his ex-wife not get that?
Anyway, I don't know how the young Harvey son was able to communicate what goes on at the bottom of the stairs (a la Harry Potter & the Dursleys) if she hasn't actually seen him or spoken to him. I'm not saying it isn't possible that the boy's being held hostage in his father's house but I know teenagers will do what they want to do. If he really wanted to talk to his mom, he'd have used a friend's phone, computer, iPad, courier pigeon, or morris coder to get to his mom. See, in working with children & parents, the truth is most folks have NO CONTROL over their children
Honestly, the whole thing just sounded unnecessarily tragic, including how she hasn't had an assistant in 6 years. Tom Joyner hopes to be able to use his VJ powers [wait...what?] to make Steve Harvey do what Mary claims he refuses to do—talk to her. She keeps saying that we should believe her because she's not doing this for money. If you gon' be out here puttin' folks on Front Street, lookin' all bitter & whatnot, you may as well get a check. It's the American Way. To me, & no one actually asked, she's just upset that she's lost the ability to do this:
It ain't trickin' if you got it. But when you don't...
Anyway, I ain't mad at Marjorie for being on the come up. This is what she looks like on a chill shopping day. Her whole flava is, as Awesomely Luvvie says, 'bout that Life. Military Trapper Fresh. Did you notice the designer bag is wearing a rain coat too? & Steve's face looks like he just came to America & he's "very happy to be here." It's not my goal, but I get it.
Watch me move.
