How do you make Steve Harvey’s homemade BBQ sauce?

 

The Steve Harvey Morning Show has been part of my wake-up ritual for over a decade. It’s like a favorite podcast, but in reality, it’s a syndicated radio show with a cast of six funny personalities, including that of Steve Harvey!

I set my calendar link not to schedule appointments until after I’ve laughed out-loud at Shirley Strawberry’s write-in advice column called The Strawberry Letter. You can probably guess that I’m also extremely annoyed when someone calls me while Shirley’s reading the letter!

The Strawberry Letter

You should hear the types of things listeners write in about for advice. From family secrets to dating a man older than their father. A sister and brother finding out they’re dating the same man. A wife finding secret photos of her husband’s foot fetish, and this week there was even a part two of a previous letter— meaning the person wrote back in again for a sequel!

Who even needs Bravo and The Real Housewives?

Well, never mind that question because, on Thursdays, Carla Ferrell on TSHMS does her reality TV segment, which recaps popular reality shows, including The Real Housewives Of Atlanta!

The Mister told me that The Strawberry Letter is on podcast now. He listens to the podcast show, and he can rewind the knee-slapping hilarious parts of the letters! I’m still old-school and like to listen to the segment live.
