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.").

Steve Harvey ripped into Kirk Franklin's ungrateful son for publicly embarrassing his father by posting an audio clip of their argument.

Harvey shared his opinion on the controversy surrounding Franklin after his son, Kerrion Franklin, released audio of the gospel singer shouting and cursing at him.

The 33-year-old also alleges that his father was verbally and physically abusive toward him.

Harvey said he called Franklin before going in on Kerrion.

"Kirk Franklin has always been there for me. So I called him. And I told Kirk -- Kirk say, 'Unc, I'm having a tough day today.' And I just called him to lift him up, to tell him, 'Nah, man, get your head up out the dirt. Because you didn't do nothing wrong.'"

He added:

"The pain that Kirk Franklin was in was for twofold. First of all, the betrayal of his son. That had to be devastating. That you would think so little of me. That you would take me in one of my rawest moments and try to destroy me by posting something that was purely between me and you."

Harvey then addressed Kerrion directly:

"And his son knew exactly what he was doing. That's why he posted it. But his son only posted the part that he thought could hurt Kirk. He didn't post the part of what he was asking of Kirk. He didn't post the part of what led up to Kirk's anger.

"He ain't posted none of the years -- like Kirk was telling y'all about the therapy. But I'm telling you for a fact -- [Kerrion] didn't post and tell you about none of the years that he's tried to make Kirk feel guilty and drag him through the mud and expect more Kirk's new family was getting this and he didn't feel like he getting that..."

Harvey continued:

"This young man -- this boy is thirty three years old. How you 33-years-old and posting something your father said. That don't make no sense. That shows you the lack of manhood that this man has."

Harvey went on to chastise the church "wit y'all righteous self" for criticizing Franklin for using profanity.

"Y'all get off Kirk's back! 'Cause I tell you right now, you're making a mistake. You come over here, you gon' get cussed smoove out!"

Harvey added: Kirk don't owe none of y'all no apology."

Steve and Marjorie Harvey and Slutty Vegan CEO Pinky Cole teamed up to restore power to 100 Atlanta families with past-due power bills.

More than 100 struggling families were without power or gas when utility companies cut off their power for overdue bills.

The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation along with The Pinky Cole Foundation partnered with Georgia Power to turn the power back on by bringing the past due bills up-to-date.

"With millions of Americans at risk of losing power as massive unpaid bills pile up, it was necessary for us to work with the Pinky Cole Foundation and Georgia Power to pay the turn-off notices for some struggling Georgia Power customers to give some relief," said Sharon Page, Executive Director of the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation.

"With Mr. and Mrs. Harvey relocating back to Atlanta, Georgia, their goal is to be a blessing and continue to help those in need, especially during these unprecedented times."

Not everyone is so lucky. Despite the generosity of Harvey and Cole, thousands of families are still without power.

Pro-Trump supporters Kanye West and Steve Harvey bonded over lunch at Kanye's favorite fast food restaurant Chik-Fil-A.

Kanye and Steve grabbed lunch at a Chik-Fil-A location in Atlanta on Tuesday, Aug. 18. Kanye posted a snap of Steve on Twitter.com. He captioned the image: "Me and Steve Harvey was hungry."

Steve’s career was nearly canceled 4 years ago when he expressed his support for newly-elected President Donald Trump.

Steve, 63, previously joked about supporting Kanye for president on The Steve Harvey Show. "If Donald Trump wins, I'll go on the ticket with Kanye," he said. "But I gotta tell you, I'm just going for vice president. I'm gonna let Kanye be president."

He continued: "I don't want to b going to all the meetings and everything. I want to be the Joe Biden. I just wanna fire off, just say stuff, just be out there talking. You know Joe Biden just say whatever he wants to say. 'Mr. Harvey?' 'Hell, no!'"

If you recall, I told you Perry lost a boatload of money when he sold the same home for $17.5 million - a steep drop from his "firm" asking price of $25 million.

The buyer, according to RhymeswithSnitch, was mega-preacher David Turner.

The house, on the 4100 block of Paces Ferry Rd, is located near the prestigious and absurdly expensive Lovett School, which is closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Harvey, who is married to Lori's mother, Marjorie Bridges Harvey, expressed surprise when the paparazzi stopped him on the street and asked him about his stepdaughter's latest sexual conquest.

"I don't know nothing about that," he said.

His smile faded when he was asked if he approved of Future. "I don't know nothing about that," the radio host repeated.

Harvey commented on fellow comedian George Lopez catching heat for saying he would take half of Iran's $80 million bounty to kill President Trump, a close friend of Harvey's.

"George is a comedian. But you know, the climate now, you can't tell jokes no more," Harvey said.

He also commented on the controversy surrounding fellow comedian Mark Curry who accused Harvey of stealing his jokes.

"I'm getting sick of this," he said before adding that Curry "needs to grow up." The Family Feud host said Curry confronted him years ago about the allegations, but Curry couldn't remember which jokes Harvey allegedly stole.
