You might remember a short time ago when comedian and talk show host Steve Harvey dominated the headlines.
You know, that time he made a major mistake on national television.
We’re sure he hasn’t forgotten.
Harvey was hosting the Miss Universe pageant in December when he read the results incorrectly, and announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, as the winner. Minutes later, Harvey announced that he called the wrong name. Miss Philippines was the actual winner.

The flub spurred plenty of memes on social media, while some speculated that the mistake was a PR stunt.
Harvey denounced those claims when he had Gutierrez on his show recently.
“I was laughing because I thought you were about to make a joke,” Gutierrez said of the incident.
“That would have been the worst damn joke I’ve ever written in my life,” Harvey said.
It was an emotional reunion, with tears shed from both Gutierrez and Harvey.
“It was like a nightmare,” Gutierrez said. “I couldn’t believe that happened to me. I needed time to be with my family.”
