      You are so right he is flying high but it going to come back and won’t belong. He’s not perfect he makes mistakes he made a big one the way he did his wife who stood by him sleeping in cars then he married a family that is reaping what she struggle 2 get him where he is showing him he’s not above making mistakes n a couple years watch what karma got 4 him.

    He got upset about being asked if he rehearsed. That should have been rehearsed just like everything else. I didn’t see the card, but if it wasn’t listed properly, that’s on the entire show. Including Steve.

    Seriously people! HE MADE A MISTAKE!! I don’t think he can forget working again! It’s absolutely ridiculous and very sad that people have had to make this such an issue! Yes, it was horrible for miss Columbia and I know how terrible she must feel but she WILL be okay! Leave Steve Harvey alone! My Lord! I totally see how the mistake was made. They should’ve put 2nd runner up 1st runner up then WINNER! It was an honest mistake. Let it GO already and leave the poor man alone. He feels bad enough already!

    I am thoroughly enjoying the roasting of this bamma! It’s karma for what he did to Bernie Mac!

    What’s with all the sympathy for Steve “Choppers” Harvey, he gets paid for this sh*t. F*ck him if he can’t deal with some spearing and jabs. Beeeyaach Phulleeezzz!!! I met he at an event, dude treated folks like a real a**hole. He signed up for this sh*t, he knew the game going in. Celebrity is a double edged sword.

    Wow! She is beautiful congrats to her and congrats to the other contestants!!! But why crucify Steve, he realized his mistake made it right and feels horrible. Leave him alone! Not perfect and why bring his past up? It has no bearing on this issue. People get a grip and get over it!!! Steve said it hasn’t happen before yet it has in 2006 universe pageant, oops I made a mistake I didn’t say it right”Miss Universe Pageant” he said it right but crowned the wrong one? Hmmmmm
    Y’all need to get off Steve, at least he didn’t crown a man for woman of the year Now that’s a big huge mistake
