Steve Harvey Breaks His Silence In A Special Two-Day TV Event, "Miss Universe: The Truth" On His Syndicated Daytime Talk Show, Airing January 18 & 19
January 15, 2016 - Steve Harvey puts it all on the table in a revealing two-day television event “Miss Universe: The Truth,” on his syndicated daytime talk show “Steve Harvey,” airing Monday, January 18 and Tuesday, January 19. Joined by the newly crowned Miss Universe from the Philippines, PIA WURTZBACH and first runner-up from Colombia, ARIADNA GUTIERREZ, Harvey addresses his stint as host of the Miss Universe pageant where he mistakenly announced the wrong woman as the pageant winner. He has kept silent and not done any interviews about the incident, but now he’s ready to let viewers in on the story and answer every question that comes his way.
"This has caused a lot of sleepless nights for me," says Steve Harvey. "I didn't do any interviews until I could talk to the two people who were affected the most, Pia and Ariadna. No matter how tough it was for me, I can’t imagine how it was for these two women. This finally gives me a chance to have a moment of closure," he adds.
In part one of the special airing Monday, January 18, nothing is off limits during a special “Ask Steve” segment in which audience members ask the tough questions people around the world have wanted answers to. Steve welcomes the newly crowned Miss Universe from the Philippines, PIA WURTZBACH, for an honest and unfiltered one-on-one conversation, revealing what it was like to go through the incident, her reaction to winning the crown, how much contact she’s had with Miss Colombia and more. Miss USA, OLIVIA JORDAN, who was named the second runner-up in the pageant, also joins the conversation.
On Tuesday, January 19, the two-day event continues as Steve sits down with first runner-up, Miss Colombia ARIADNA GUTIERREZ, the woman that Steve mistakenly announced had won the Miss Universe pageant, only to be told a few minutes later, that there had been an error. In their emotional first conversation since the pageant, Steve will have a chance to talk forgiveness with Ariadna, and she will have the opportunity to let Steve Harvey know exactly how she feels. Tune-in to hear Ariadna speak candidly about her emotions as the ordeal unraveled, the reactions of her family and fellow Colombians, how she handled the aftermath on social media and instant fame and more importantly, if she is ready to forgive Steve Harvey.
