Steve Harvey’s wife praises him after Miss Universe blunder

Los Angeles: Steve Harvey’s wife Marjorie has defended her husband and says she is proud to be his wife despite the host’s embarrassing Miss Universe debacle.

She took to Instagram one day after the incident. “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,” she captioned a red carpet photo of the twosome.

“I am so proud to be your wife! I love you,” she added. The daytime talk show host, 58, has been apologizing since naming Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez the next Miss Universe instead of the real winner, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach, during the pageant’s live telecast.
