Steve Harvey addresses Miss Universe mixup on air

Comments 0

Steve Harvey is discussing the Miss Universe mixup on his radio show this morning. He said he’s had a chance to talk to everyone involved except for Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutiérrez and dismissed out of hand any suggestion that the ordeal was a publicity stunt.

“Why the hell would I do that?” he said. “I’m already famous. Do you really think I wanted to be famous like this?”

He alluded to a buggy teleprompter as the culprit behind the goof but took responsibility.

“Did I make a mistake? Yes I did,” he said during this morning’s broadcast on 107.5. “I’m not in the finger pointing business and rolling other people the bus.”

He described the moments right after he announced the wrong winner as chaotic.

“All I hear is confusion back stage,” he said. “I’m standing there in the wing. I got a guy in my ear going, we gotta do something. I had to walk out there and do what I thought was the right thing.”

Miss Colombia thanked fans and saluted the true Miss Universe winner after the ordeal.

He also stressed that he did not miss any rehearsals.

“I went to more rehearsals than I’ve ever gone to for anything,” he said. “I did the whole table read. I was there for the entire dress rehearsal.”
