Instances that become publicly known take an awkward turn. They often draw significant media and public attention, and the recent case exemplifying this phenomenon is the situation involving Shirley Strawberry, which serves as a notable example!
The emergence of a leaked phone call between Shirley Strawberry and her ex-husband, where they discussed Steve Harvey’s wife, Marjorie, has garnered substantial headlines, putting the two under the radar of public speculation.
It was during a leaked conversation that Shirley Strawberry’s tone seemed condescending when discussing Marjorie Harvey and the couple’s opulent lifestyle with her ex-husband Ernesto Williams, who’s behind bars as of now. Acknowledging the potential repercussions of her words and the delicate nature of the situation, Shirley Strawberry subsequently issued an apology.
Recent events on ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show’ have cast a shadow over the iconic radio program. The controversy revolves around conversations between co-host Shirley Strawberry and her soon-to-be ex-husband, which were made public and caused quite a stir on the internet.
Shirley Strawberry was communicating with her incarcerated ex-partner through what was believed to be a private jail phone call. While it was known that the call would be recorded, the expectation was that the audio would remain within the confines of the correctional facility.
However, during this exposed conversation, which initially occurred late last year, Strawberry could be heard discussing Steve Harvey and his wife, Marjorie’s wealthy lifestyle. She went on to assert that her boss may not be as exemplary in his relationship with his wife as he appears to be in his public role. This unexpected revelation has stirred up quite a bit of intrigue and controversy surrounding ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show.’
Strawberry’s words were:
“Marjorie has her own Spa, her own workout room. She could go in there and get massages every day. People come to her house and work her out and all of that. I was like, ‘Oh God what a dream.’”
Adding to it, Strawberry said that Harvey is mostly scared of his wife and that even his behavior is altered when he’s around her. She added, saying it is awkward when Marjorie is around every time Harvey invites them over. She said,
“She looks at us as ‘the help’ you know… it is what it is.”
But soon enough, Strawberry issued an apology to Harvey and his wife for her words. The co-hosts’ remorse was more inclined towards Marjorie, as she even spilled tea on her apparent cheating rumors that surfaced recently.
“Right here and now, I want to apologize to you and Marjorie for what I said. As much as I wish I could, I can’t take it back. I can’t. I said it, and I want to apologize. It was definitely not me trying to add to what you and Majorie already have going on, in your lives… right now.”

Although Harvey’s reaction to the whole controversy was pretty accepting, as the author and host shared that he personally wasn’t offended by the remarks but was deeply concerned for his wife, Marjorie, and wanted to make sure she stayed steer clear of the negativity.
