Steve Harvey Received Death Threats Over Pageant Gaffe

Steve Harvey Received Death Threats Over Miss Universe Gaffe: 'I
It's been about a month since Steve Harvey's gaffe at the Miss Universe pageant went viral and now the entertainer is getting the chance to discuss the incident in detail with both women involved - and the rest of the world.

Harvey is hosting a two-day television special Monday, Jan. 18 and Tuesday, Jan. 19 in which he will go face-to-face with Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach and the first runner-up, Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez.

A teaser video for the special episodes of 'The Steve Harvey Show' detail the immediate aftermath of the gaffe for Harvey, including the sleepless nights he end...

Steve Harvey Made A Mistake -- Get Over It!

It was the mistake heard around the universe, and if you haven't yet seen the footage of Steve Harvey crowning Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez the new "Miss Universe" before realizing he read his cue card incorrectly and then correcting his gaffe -- having her hand over her flowers and tiara to the real winner, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach, I strongly suggest you stop everything and view it immediately.

It was an awesomely cringe-worthy event of epic proportion; and although Harvey undoubtedly failed to deliver this information in a proper manner, we have also failed him in our response....

Steve Harvey Is Laughing At Himself... Finally

Steve Harvey
Steve Harvey gets it... and he has won the internet. After his major Miss Universe fail last week (where he announced the wrong winner causing the crown to be taken off Miss Colombia and placed on the head of Miss Philippines), the jokes and the memes haven't stopped and now, Mr. Harvey is getting into it too. Since he has apologized profusely (and has already been invited back to host the Miss Universe pageant in 2016), it is time that Steve has a laugh -- by poking fun at himself.

On Christmas day, Harvey posted the following picture on Instagram. Check out the caption.

Steve Harvey Asked Back To Host Miss Universe 2016

Steve Harvey Invited Back To Host Miss Universe 2016 Despite Hug
Steve Harvey is asked back to host Miss Universe in 2016 despite convictions from critics that he'd never be back following Sunday night's huge snafu.

According to Mark Shapiro, Chief Content Officer of WME IMG, owner of Miss Universe, he announced on Tuesday's “Jim Rome Show” that Harvey is invited back to host another pageant. Deadline confirmed the report.

“It just was a flat-out mistake,” said Shaprio.

Harvey made a huge flub when he announced pageant runner-up Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner instead of Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. He made an apology shortly a...

15 Of The Funniest Clips Ever From 'Family Feud' With Steve Harvey

'What Is Cupine?' -- Steve Harvey's Funniest 'Family Feud' Momen
Comedian Steve Harvey recently came under fire for botching the announcement of the winner of the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant, which he hosted on December 20.

The 58-year-old accidentally named Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez the winner, when it was actually Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. Oops. At least Gutierrez can now add being Miss Universe to her resume, even though it was only for a couple minutes.

Harvey, whose resume includes writing a few relationship advice books, hosting a talk show (or three) and, of course, hosting hit game show Family Feud since 2010.

And we hope h...

By Far, This Is Worse Than Steve Harvey's Miss Universe Gaffe

Apparently, 'N-Word' Not Unique To 'US': Users Lob Racist Tweets
Most people agree that Steve Harvey's blunder with the 2015 Miss Universe pageant winner was painful to watch. However, Harvey's flub on Sunday night revealed something more egregious: racism is alive and well, and the N-word is not unique to the United States.

This article is less about what happened last night and more about the racist vitriol targeting the veteran comedian almost in real-time. We can all agree that the pain and humiliation Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines -- and Steve Harvey, for that matter -- experienced were immeasurable unless you've walked in their shoes.


Miss Universe Conspiracy Theory Suspected By Twitter Users

Miss Universe Conspiracy Theory: Many Suspect Steve Harvey's Scr
A Twitter storm has erupted, alleging that a Miss Universe Conspiracy was at work when Steve Harvey screwed up by announcing Miss Colombia instead of Miss Philippines as the beauty pageant winner.

It was a devastating moment when Colombia's Ariadna Gutierrez was erroneously named as Miss Universe 2015 and the real winner was corrected as Philippines' Pai Alonzo Wurtzbach. Harvey apologized profusely for the mistake and owned it.

Not everyone is convinced. There are conspiracy theories that a stage portion of Miss Universe unfolded when it came to announcing the winner.

10 Celebrities Besides Steve Harvey At Miss Universe Who Had An
The Internet is ablaze today with the news that actor Steve Harvey accidentally announced the wrong winner at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant Sunday night on live television. Harvey misread his cue card and temporarily crowned Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez when in fact it was Miss Phillippines Pia Wurtzbach who had won the title.

That made for a couple very awkward minutes of television as Harvey was forced to go back on stage and admit his mistake. The crown was then literally snatched from Miss Colombia's head and placed on Miss Phillippines instead.

Harvey's probably going to have a r...

'Family Feud' Contestant Reveals Craziest Answer Ever To Question! (Watch)

Laughter Ensues After 'Family Feud' Contestant Reveals 'Gerbil'
A Family Feud contestant managed to shock both their opponent and host Steve Harvey when she gave what had to be the dumbest answer ever to a survey question.

Steve Harvey asked contestants Darci and Manny; 'What does a doctor pull out of a person?'

Darci buzzed in immediately, and shouted out; "A gerbil."

Host Harvey stood stunned and in silence for a moment, not knowing what to say or do, while the other contestant couldn't stop laughing.

"I didn't say that," said Darci in embarassment.

Obviously, a gerbil was not one of the popular responses to the survey question.

Think Like A Man
