Steve Harvey Book Optioned, Relationships Saved

04.02.10 7 years ago 11 Comments

Because there’s nothing women need more than new and contradictive relationship advice, “King of Comedy” Steve Harvey wrote his own advice book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, which turned out much better than Bernie Mac’s book, Fine! You Win. The best-selling book, released in January 2009 and a favorite of Oprah Winfrey, has recently been optioned by Rainforest Films, with Harvey on board to produce, and Keith Merryman and David A. Newman on board to write.

According to Movie Web:

It is based on a relationship advice book, written in Harvey’s comedic voice, which has sold more than 1.4 million copies and is being printed in 26 different languages. The book sheds light on everything from why men are in the fixing business and not the talking business to why independent women should reconnect with their girlish side to make their men feel necessary.

I’m in the fixing business because Harvard had a great Bachelor’s program in Fixing. The Talking program required all these extra prerequisites, and my father’s talking company went belly up when the Internet bubble burst.

You can witness some of the author/comedian’s edgy and witty insight on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, but I don’t mind Steve Harvey. Well, other than his Original Kings of Comedy tour paving the way for the Blue Collar Diarrhea Fun Time and the Latin Kings of Please Stop Giving George Lopez Work.

Steve Harvey’s also going to be the new host of the Family Feud starting in September. His version will be packaged with People’s Court in a new morning time slot at 2 p.m.
