Steve Harvey was once largely known as one of the Original Kings of Comedy. But with a top-rated syndicated radio show, Harvey, who is also seen daily (three to four times in some regions) as the new host of the long-running game show ‘Family Feud,’ and nightly on BET’s new Centric channel via ‘The Steve Harvey Project‘ featuring the best of what he and his radio cohorts (which is comprised of Shirley Strawberry, Carla Ferrell and Nephew Tommy), is increasingly becoming the King of All Media.

In just a few weeks, the 53-year old married father of seven will turn 54. And by the time the Welch, West Virginia native’s birthday rolls around, Harvey will most likely hit the New York Times Bestseller’s list with his brew of no-holds-barred relationship advice found in this week’s publishing of his second tome, ‘Straight Talk, No Chaser; : How to Find, Keep and Understand a Man‘ (Amistad/HarperCollinsPublishers)

The Essence magazine columnist’s first attempt at doling out valuable vittles about love was no fluke – ‘Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man’ was an overnight hit and spent 60 weeks on the coveted list. According to the book’s publisher, more than two million copies are in print.

Powerhouse movie producer Will Packer (‘Stomp The Yard,’ ‘Obsessed’) has snapped up the rights for the beloved book to become a motion picture.

During an exclusive interview with BlackVoices.com recently, the philanthropist born as Broderick Steven Harvey talked candidly about a range of topics seldom spoken about before like his humble beginnings dropping out of Kent Stage University, working at the Ford Motor Company; his first failed marriage; breaking into comedy; being homeless; the best lessons learned; launching the Kings of comedy; his third marriage to the beautiful Marjorie Bridges-Harvey; keeping the bloggers busy; being considered a ‘relationship expert’; not being a movie star and the state of black radio.
