The Steve Harvey Show

These days, Steve Harvey has plenty to be grateful for: a hit syndicated daytime talk show, Steve Harvey, multiple best sellers, a job as host of the syndicated game show Family Feud – and two luxe homes in Chicago and Atlanta where he can unwind with his wife, Marjorie, and the seven children they share between them.
But when he was first starting out as a comedian in the late 80s, Harvey, 56, knew what it was to struggle.
Living on a shoestring budget, after splitting from his first wife, Marcia, and sending the majority of his paychecks home to his two children, "one or two gigs fell through, and suddenly I was homeless," the comedian tells PEOPLE in its newest issue, on news stands Friday.

We really wish Steve Harvey's mom was around to give him a big hug.
The Daytime Emmy-nominated talk show host gives a tearful tribute to his mother during a segment titled "Things My Mom Taught Me" on Steve Harvey this Monday, and the raw emotion he displays for his mom, Eloise Harvey, who died of a stroke in 1997 at age 83, almost leaves the typically chatty host at a rare loss for words.
"When they asked me to do this I said I'd take a shot at it, but it's a difficult thing for me," he says while taking long pauses in an attempt to compose himself and letting tears stream down his face. "I can only hope that in everything that she's taught me, somehow, she's somewhere watching me."

She held court at Harpo Studios almost every weekday for a quarter-century – some 4,561 shows in all.
So, Oprah Winfrey was bound to miss some things about her daily talk show after the final episode aired on May 25, 2011.
Now, almost two years after stepping down, Winfrey reveals to Steve Harvey – on his own newly successful Chicago-based talk show – the thing she misses most about being the queen of daytime TV.
