Steve Harvey took to his nationally syndicated radio show yesterday to address salacious allegations that his ex-wife, Mary Shackelford, posted via YouTube. In her videos Shackelford claims that the King of Comedy was a serial cheater who left her for his current wife, Marjorie Bridges Harvey.

Since their 2005 divorce, Shackelford claimed that she now has nothing, as Harvey also has full custody of their 15-year-old son, Wynton.

Now, the New York Times best-selling author's current wife has retained an attorney to fight the allegations that she was the other woman, something that she said has left her both "shocked and dismayed."

Marjorie is pursuing a lawsuit against Shackelford.

"As a wife and a mother, I cannot stand back and allow the defamation of my character or actions that will malign my family," the philanthropist said in a statement released through her attorney C. Anthony Mulrain, exclusively released to BlackVoices.com.

"So, I will do what I need to do to the greatest extent of the law."

Shackelford claimed she found e-mails and text messages between her 'Family Feud' talk show host ex-husband and Marjorie and that after she expressed a desire to get a divorce, he left and fled to New York City to be with Marjorie.


  1. She needs to be careful with that. The only defense to defamation is TRUTH. If any part of it is true, she won't win. Remember that Eddie Murphy on Sunset Strip story, way back when, and the National Enquirer released the story. He decided to sue for them for defamation. Then all of a sudden he dropped the suit. Hmmmmm....

  2. Ah, the classic defamation suit by the ex. Maybe everyone thinking of filing this suit should just hire a class action lawyer to file a suit to save time.

  3. Marjorie Bridges's character was defamed before Mary Schackelford ever heard of her. She has a less than admirable past. All one has to do is google "Memphis Drug Kingpins" and her name comes up as both a girlfriend of one and the wife of two. She has been nicknamed "Hustle Bunny." She needs to sit down and hush.
