Steve Harvey Once Talked About Losing His Talk Show in 2016 Interview
An old interview revealed that Steve Harvey had been anticipating his show's cancelation.
Steve Harvey is probably going through the most difficult week of his career, after NBC announced the cancellation of his syndicated talk show.
But in an old interview in 2016, Harvey had contemplated the possibility and revealed his fears which originated from a period of homelessness.
STEVE HARVEY IS STILL RUNNING FROM HOMELESSNESS
Harvey confessed that even though he is worth over $160 million, he still has nightmares about being homeless and living on $50 a week.
Harvey, 62, revealed that he had a plan in case his talk show ever got canceled.
“I’m running from homelessness. I can’t ever be in that position again. If my show gets canceled, I’ve got three more. I don’t have any free time, but I have 12 jobs,” said Harvey.
