Comedian and TV personality Steve Harvey was a guest on BET TV's "Sip 'n Smoke with Cam Newton."

Newton introduced Harvey as "The man, the myth, the legend himself."

Among the topics of discussion were the keys to success, relevancy, marriage and fatherhood advice.

"The thing I've learned about fatherhood," said Harvey, "ain't no manual, ain't no blueprint for raising yo' kids, and you have to allow them -- because they are going to -- so it's not you allowing them. They are going to make mistakes -- and you have to allot for those mistakes. Because, no matter what you teach them as a parent, they one day are going to make a mistakes that's completely adverse to everything you've ever taught them."

Harvey said his sons are different because he raised them to be head of a household, a husband and a father. "It's going to require toughness so I make them struggle a little bit more."

Harvey said his daughters are different. "I'm protective of them. If you attack my daughters or my wife, I'm coming for you."

He added: "Cats out here be running they mouth... You don't understand: I will die for them."

Both Cam Newton and Steve Harvey are raising (or raised) stepchildren. The superstar quarterback asked Harvey how he handled a stepchild who challenges him and says, "You ain't my daddy."

"When I married Marjorie, Marjorie had three children," said Harvey. "One time one of them said to me, 'you ain't my daddy.' And my question was, 'Ok, but where he at though?' 'Cause I get tight too. Don't step to me disrespectful. Because I'm doing the job [sic]."

Harvey went on to praise men who step up and take on another man's responsibility ("That's a different kind of man.").
