After the most epic TV blunder of his life, Steve Harvey had Miss Colombia on his talk show to reconcile with her. It turns out that it’s all good on the friendship front!
Steve Harvey, 59, and Miss Colombia (AKA Ariadna Gutierrez, 22), have had a rocky relationship to say the least, and in the Jan. 19 episode of Steve Harvey — titled “Miss Universe: The Truth, Part II” — Steve finally broke his silence about the incident. He was beside himself with emotion as he tearfully embraced Ariadna, and the pair discussed that heartbreaking moment when she thought she had become Miss Universe.
Steve was extremely nervous to have Ariadna on his show, and this was his chance to make things right with her. “I want to make sure she’s OK,” he said to his audience before she came on. “I hated what happened for her. I do need this, though. I really need to see her. I really, really do. I need her to hear it from me. I hope she’s forgiving. If she’s not, I’ll stay in the mist a little while longer. I’m tired of it really.” Fortunately, they hugged it out as Steve had tears in his eyes, and she forgave him. “I already forgave you the same night,” Ariadna told Steve. “I spent time with my family and I calmed down. I have moved on,” she added.
This episode of Steve’s show wasn’t all sunshine and daisies. Ariadna gave him a piece of her mind before she was ready to forgive him: “You have to learn how to read cards, because it was on the card…You wanted me to win, you know?” she half-joked. Steve laughed and told her he was glad to be “off the hook”, but still! Awkward!
HollywoodLifers, are you happy Ariadna forgave Steve?
