Some women aspire to be the “other woman,” — that sexy, yet brainy, high maintenance jump off who breaks up a powerful man’s home and supplants herself in his wife’s place. Many notable jump offs — Kim Porter comes to mind — never make it as far as the alter.
The former Marjorie Bridges, who married Steve Harvey, 54, in 2007, claims she is not that “other woman” as alleged by Steve’s 2nd wife, Mary Shackelford. Marjorie says the scandalous allegations have left her both “shocked and dismayed” — and she’s fighting back by launching a lawsuit to save her carefully cultivated public image as a respected Atlanta socialite.
Marjorie’s defense will probably be
the same well-worn excuse that all jump offs use when confronted with evidence of their gold digging ways: Steve’s marriage was already heading for divorce court.
But not according to Mary Shackelford. Since their 2005 divorce, Shackelford claims she now has nothing, as Harvey also has full custody of their 14-year-old son, Wynton, who was born a year after the couple wed in 1996.
