Steve Harvey is ready to tell ‘the truth’ about his Miss Universe flub. In a preview for a two-episode special airing on Jan. 18 and 19, the host welcomes Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and the woman he mistakenly crowned, Ariadna Gutiérrez, to ‘The Steve Harvey Show.’ And he cries. Watch here!
Steve Harvey came face-to-face with Miss Universe‘s true winner, Pia Wurtzbach, and the first runner-up, Ariadna Gutiérrez, during a two-day Steve Harvey special, following that embarrassing mistake he made at the 2015 pageant. Apparently, he hadn’t seem them since the whole mishap and he just wanted to get some closure. The experience, which will be broadcast on Jan. 18 and 19, was an emotional one. Watch here!
“This has caused a lot of sleepless nights for me,” Steve says in the promo clip above. “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.”
Sadly, Steve, 58, also mentioned his family received death threats after his infamous flub, so now he’s totally afraid to let his children go out in public. That’s so heartbreaking.
Thankfully, Pia forgives him. “Don’t beat yourself up for this anymore. Let’s move forward, let’s just be happy,” the-26-year-old says. To see if Ariadna also forgives him, we’ll have to wait and see.
