Is Steve Harvey struggling to recruit big-name celebrities to appear on his talk show? That’s the claim from one particularly unreliable webloid. Gossip Cop can reveal the truth. We’re told it’s “not true.”
The baseless allegation comes from RadarOnline, which blares in a brand-new headline, “Hollywood Snubs Steve! Stars Refuse To Go On Heinous Host Harvey’s L.A. Talk Show.” In the accompanying story, the often disproven outlet attempts to dupe its readers into thinking that Harvey can’t recruit a “single big-name celebrity” to “guest on his gig.” To support its premise, a so-called “source” is then quoted as saying, “It’s a disaster! Execs assumed moving Steve from Chicago to L.A. would make it easier to get stars on his show. It hasn’t worked.”
The site’s seemingly made-up “insider” goes on to contend, “Steve has zero relationships with Hollywood, and he’s hired people who tell him ‘yes’ instead of producers connected to A-list managers and publicists.” “If he’s lucky he’ll be able to book a few ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ and some celebrity chefs,” further purports the website’s alleged “source,” adding, “but that’s about the extent of the talent to expect on his show.”
Let Gossip Cop set the record straight on this untrue and manufactured tale. In the past week alone, Khloe Kardashian, Scott Disick, Howie Mandel and Jordana Brewster have all appeared as guests on Harvey’s L.A. based talk show. And rounding off the week, the cast of “Fuller House” is slated to sit down with Harvey, as well as “The Price Is Right” host Drew Carey.
Of course, if the unreliable outlet had done an ounce of research, it would have realized that Harvey isn’t struggling to get big-name celebrities to appear on his show. Despite the website’s inaccurate story, Gossip Cop still looked into the claim, and a reputable source close to the star assures us the report is “not true.” Producers of “The Steve Harvey Show” are actively booking a number of high-profile stars for the popular series, and any claims made otherwise are simply false.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
