Comedian and best-selling author Steve Harvey visited Boston to promote his new daytime television show, premiering on WCVB Channel  5 at 10 a.m. on September 4.  Harvey posed with (L-R):  Darryl Settles, owner of Darryl’s Corner Bar and Kitchen, where the special VIP taping took place, “CityLine” Host Karen Holmes Ward and WCVB-TV General Manager Bill Fine.

Harvey and his wife, Marjorie, started The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation. “The Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend for Young Men” is a four-day, three-night program for young men between the ages of 13-18, who live in a single, female-head of household.

There, the boys are taught the principles of manhood. To reach young girls, Mrs. Harvey takes 100 girls for the “Girls Who Rule the World Mentoring Weekend.”

It’s a three-day, two-night program that aims to aid in the development of young girls and provide a forum to expose them to the benefits and the importance of positive self-image and responsible personal conduct.

“God has been so amazing to me,” said Harvey during the taping.

He says that he believes God blesses him so he that he can be a blessing to others. After wrapping up the show, Harvey—who claims the most dangerous thing he’s ever done was to go on safari in Africa—shares what it takes to keep a relationship fresh.

“I have this thing written on my iPad to remind myself to keep dating  [Marjorie],” he explains. “If a guy can remember to do all the things he did in the beginning, to not stop holding hands, to not stop telling her how much he’s glad to be with her, then you’ll be all right.”
