The Riches of Marcia Harvey
How rich is Marcia Harvey? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, apparently gained largely as a consequence of her divorce from Steve, who now has an estimated net worth that is at $140 million. As she apparently continues working in some capacity, it is expected that her wealth may also continue to increase.
Early LifeWhile very little is known about Marcia’s childhood, it is known that she was interested in writing from the age of 12. However, she didn’t really pursue the craft and firstly studied Chemistry while in college. After completing her degree, she worked in various fields of clinical research, forensic science, management, and quality assurance. She later worked in a department store, but still worked on writing in the background. According to reports, she wrote a lot of poems to express success, joy, disappointments, trials, troubles and expectations. She also used her writings to express her faith, her relationship with Jesus Christ, and discovering love. Eventually, long after her relationship with Steve ended, she released a collection of poems entitled “MARCIA: Eyes to the Soul”. Reviews state that some of her poems gave an insight to her relationship with her former husband.
Steve Harvey became highly popular through hosting his own “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” and eventually starred in his own television show, called “The Steve Harvey Show”. He also became the host of various game shows, such as “Family Feud” and “Little Big Shots”. He became known for his unique comedy and his skills in improvising, especially while hosting. Eventually, he became the host of the Miss Universe pageant from 2015. He also wrote his own autobiography entitled “Act Like a Lady, “Think Like a Man” which he followed up with “Straight Talk, No Chaser: How to Find and Keep a Man”.
Steve has won numerous awards over the course of his career, including six Daytime Emmy Awards, 14 NAACP Image Awards, and two Marconi Awards, in numerous categories over the years. He’s also been surrounded with controversies too over the course of his career, due to him making jokes taken inappropriately by the intended audience; he’s apologized to the Asian community at one time for making a bad joke. He currently works as the executive producer and host of the shows “Steve”, and “Little Big Shots: Forever Young”.
Marcia and Steve married in 1980, and they have a son and twin daughters. At the time, Steve was working as an insurance salesman, and didn’t really think about pursuing a career in comedy, though he wanted to. Eventually, he left his work to pursue comedy full time, after he won first prize in a competition. Marcia disliked his decision, and the family later struggled as Steve was trying to find a break in the industry. Their relationship deteriorated and the two strayed apart. Their divorce was finalized in 1994.
Their children would be affected by their separation, and Steve later mentioned in an interview that he was supposed to provide for them, but he had to weigh taking a chance or trying for a normal job. He later reconciled with his children, and they apparently understood why he did what he did. One of their daughters married in 2015 and had a child a year later, making them grandparents. The couple move on from their marriage and go about their lives; Steve found more success in the entertainment industry, and gradually made his way to become one of the most recognized comedians in modern times.
According to reports, Steve has since married two more times. His second marriage was to Mary Shackelford and they produced a song together, but they divorced in 2004. Two years later, he married Marjorie Bridges and adopted her three children from a previous marriage; he credits Marjorie as the woman who changed his life.
For Marcia, it’s reported that Marcia has married a man named Larry Greene, but she has been mainly out of the spotlight since her divorce with Steve. As such, there is no significant evidence to confirm a lot of her current endeavors.
