This Steve Harvey Story Will Make You Cry

Posted on January 23rd, 2013 at 12:32 pm

Talk show host Steve Harvey just turned 56 on January 17 and for his birthday, his staff surprised him with a satellite live shot  that make him tear up and RumorFix has the video.

"This is Rich Liss from Orlando, Florida," the man said. "Do you still love me, baby?"

Obviously moved by the surprise, Harvey  said, "Hey man, I love you."

So why did the comedian break down?

Steve explained, "I was 26 years old, struggling, I didn't have nothing and these people owned a furniture store in Cleveland and they took me in and gave me my first contract with my little carpet cleaning company.  When I became a comedian at 27, I didn't have money to travel -- they gave me an account at their travel agency and man I ran up a bill to $11,000 just trying to make it."

The birthday boy said he's been looking for Rich and his wife, Becky, for years.

"Hey man, I've got money now Rich," Steve said, "Matter of Fact, 'Hey Rich I'm going to send a plane to pick up you and Becky. I'm going to fly you out to Chicago for the show." He concluded, "You bailed me and I never forgot it."
