Do not disturb

I wasn't going to write about the Great Memo Rumpus concerning Family Feud's Steve Harvey. But then I wasn't going to start a game show blog, either, and it's been seven years now.

Anyhoo, if you glance at the entertainment news at all, you know that media mogul Steve got trashed for a memo he sent to his staff. He's tired of getting interrupted all the time, and he's gonna get really p.o.ed when it happens.

To be honest, the memo could have been worded a little better. There will be no meetings in my dressing room. No stopping by or popping in. NO ONE. Do not come to my dressing room unless invited. Do not open my dressing room door. IF YOU OPEN MY DOOR, EXPECT TO BE REMOVED.

Okay, removed to where? Death row? Harvey got mocked and slammed for his imperious attitude toward the people he employs. There have been some counter-arguments, though, expressing tepid support for the put-upon Steve.

This all sounds like the diva drama that Richard Dawson used to generate on Feud. Maybe there's just something about that show which makes the host a little touchy.


  1. I read about this whole charade and it did remind me of the whole Dawson drama in the 80s. I do agree that he could have worded it better. Except I don't think Dawson wrote a memo telling people to screw off. I still like the guy because he does a lot of good. But hopefully Steve can at least clear the air of this whole thing.

  2. Maybe Steve is the Dawson of this generation for all we know.
