Oh how the tawdry weasel turns. ( WE ARE WAITING ON UPDATES IN THAT Kelly WIlliams-Bolar CASE IN OHIO.. UNTIL THEN, more Steve Harvey.)
So on Monday, we reported that the Golden boy of ESSENCE magazine, Steve Harvey was called out via YouTube by his ex wife for his ALLEGED lying, cheating and child-stealing ways. Well now the backdraft has begun.
Occupational hazard, anytime someone threatens to "sue" my eyes instantly roll back into my head. It ain't all that hard, if your case is so strong trot your lil' self right down to the courthouse.
EXHBIT A- According to Blackvoices, Marjorie Harvey is now claiming SHE is going to sue the ex Mrs. Steve Harvey (2nd) for defamation. If you recall Mrs. Harvey (2nd) said Mrs. Harvey (3rd) was a home wrecker!
"As a wife and a mother, I cannot stand back and allow the defamation of my character or actions that will malign my family," the philanthropist said in a statement released through her attorney C. Anthony Mulrain, exclusively released to BlackVoices.com.
Philanthropist? Really? Is that what its called these days? Oh yeah, by the way C. Anthony Mulrain is promoting the fact that Gabrielle Union hired him to beat down her boyfriend's ex wife.
Among Mr. Mulrain's publicly reported favorable decisions are the defense of actress Gabrielle Union in Siohvaughn Wade v. Gabrielle Union, and the representation of basketball player Dwight Howard in Dwight Howard v. Royce Reed. C. Anthony Mulrain
He's a class act ain't he though.
A few small problems....
FIRST, Marjorie is a "public figure" on account of her never seeing a red carpet she didn't want to stroll down. Therefore she faces a higher standard.
SECOND, Marjorie would have to prove that her "reputation" in the community has been harmed. Well the problem with that is that Majorie's "reputation" ain't all that great. FOR YEARS folks have been reporting that Majorie has made some interesting choices in mates.
So which is worse, being called a home-wrecking paramour or THIS allegation from The YBF in 2008? I'd repeat it here, but I don't want C. Anthony Mulrain coming for me... he likes displaying Black women's heads on his legal platter apparently. *shivers*
THIRD, and my personal favorite, is something called DISCOVERY. It means that if Majorie is saying this woman runined her "reputation" then the accused gets to go in search of just what Majorie's reputation was. And if THIS is true, then I'm going be FRONT and CENTER at the clerk's office to order up my copies of the transcripts of the depositions in this case. Heck I can't wait until Mrs. Harvey ( 2nd)'s attorneys go to federal prison to interview the alleged spouses of Mrs. Harvey (3rd) to ask about reputation and what not.
FOURTH, Steve Harvey appears to be a control freak and a bully. He has that Chris Brown disease of poor impulse control and lack of self awareness.
THIS is not how you handle a scandal, running up to any blogger that will listen threatening to sue a woman who has nothing.
Marjorie, you won. You got the woman's husband. You got her son. You got her fame, what else do you want? her organs?
A major pet peeve is when the powerful ABUSE the judicial process to threaten and intimidate the weak. Maybe Mary Harvey is lying through her teeth, if that's the case shut up and sue, but don't send me a press release about it, just do it.
PS. The one great thing about this is that Steve Harvey's method of damage control is doing more damage than Mary ever could.
PPS. If Steve Harvey is ESSENCE magazine's golden cover boy, why didn't they get this exclusive from Marjorie.... #justsaying.
PPPS Apparently it was STEVE who trashed his ex-wife in ESSENCE that set this off.
It’s hard to put something behind you that keeps popping up in your life. When I seen the Essence magazine for January ’11 to keep seeing my name referenced when talking about his life that part I don’t understand, I really don’t. For as much as I tried to put all this behind me as I sit and talk and speak right now there’s a lawsuit that’s been filed against me in Texas because in Steve’s opinion I was responsible when Oprah did not give him a TV show. I’m being sued for that as I sit here on this sofa today. So as much as I’m trying to move forward, I keep getting pulled back into a situation I don’t want to be apart of. That is why I’m saying what I have to say.

PPPPS. I reserve the right to be wrong. These two megalomaniacs might actually be dumb enough to move forward with this foolishness. My assumptions are based on logic and reason.
