Wife Of Steve Harvey Comes To His Defense After Epic Miss Universe 2015 Fail

Marjorie Harvey, the wife of embattled Miss Universe host Steve Harvey defended her husband over the host’s mistake during the pageant’s coronation night. In a report from Hollywood.com, Marjorie said that she is proud of how he handled the royal mixed up even posting a photo of her with Steve together in Instagram.

Marjorie wrote: “You are a Stand Up Man and A True Class Act the way you went back out on the stage on live TV and took full responsibility alone. I am so proud to be your wife! I love you.”

Harvey is one of the beloved television and radio talk show host as well as a prolific comedian. He is well known as a charismatic host in the tv show Family Feud, coming up with witty remarks every time a contestant makes a funny answer. This time however, he put himself on the receiving end of the joke when he botches the announcement.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell called it “the worst mistake in TV awards show history.” Donald Trump who used to own the pageant with NBCUniversal until earlier this year, joined the bandwagon, and said “Very sad what happened last night at the Miss Universe pageant. I sold it 6 months ago for a record price. This would never have happened.”

Harvey found some consolation from Earvin “ Magic” Johnson who tweeted, “we’ve all made mistakes in our careers and lives. Keep the faith and keep going strong!”

It was not the first time however that a Miss Universe pageant crowned a winner by mistake. In May of 2013, the pageant for Miss Universe Canada declared Denise Garrido, 26, as the winner. Her reign lasted for almost 24 hours only. It turned out that there was a typographical error in the tabulation of the result thus hailing Riza Santos, 26, the eventual winner. Garrido was third runner-up.

Pageant Director Dennis Davila told Garrido that a typo occurred when the judges’ score sheets were entered into a computer program which resulted to the error. A third party audit discovered the mistake, committed by a pageant staff, according to Miss Universe Canada spokesperson Andrew Lopez, as told to today.com

Unlike the 2013 pageant however, Harvey committed the mistake while the world is watching.
