On Wednesday, an email that Steve Harvey sent to the staff of The Steve Harvey Show, telling them not to "ambush" him in the hallways, was leaked.
It quickly began making rounds on the internet, and soon everyone was aware of the talk show host's diva-like demands. Now Steve Harvey is speaking out about the controversial email.
On a phone call with Entertainment Tonight, Harvey clarified what he meant by the comments in the memo. His response can best be boiled down as, "Sorry not sorry."
Harvey told Entertainment Tonight that he wrote the memo because he had become overwhelmed with staff members trying to talk to him.
"I could not find a way to walk from the stage to my dressing room, to sit in my makeup chair, to walk from my dressing room to the stage or to just sit and have lunch without somebody just walking in," Harvey said. "I've always had a policy where, you know, you can come and talk to me -- so many people are great around here, but some of them just started taking advantage of it."
