Marcia Harvey is an African American woman who got into the limelight by virtue of being married to TV personality Steve Harvey – the famous host of The Steve Harvey Morning Show, Family Feud, Miss Universe among others.
She was born on January 22, 1955, almost exactly two years before her future husband.
Marcia and Steve Harvey got married in 1980, after meeting each other at a mutual friend’s reception party. At the time, Steve was an insurance salesman. They ended up having 3 children – twin daughters Karli and Brandi in 1982, and son Broderick Harvey Jr in 1991.
It was in late 1990 when Marcia was pregnant with Broderick that the couple separated. This coincided with a period when Steve got into show business, and had started finding success initially as a stand-up comic.
Their divorce was formalized in 1994, amidst accusations of infidelity and Steve abandoning his family. The entertainer refused to pay alimony and child support, prompting Marcia to take legal remedies.
Even before the completion of their divorce, Steve was already in a relationship with his second wife Mary Lee.
