STEVE HARVEY TELLS MISS COLOMBIA, “I THANK YOU FOR FORGIVENESS, I REALLY, REALLY NEEDED THAT”

While TV personality Steve Harvey has been invited back to host the Miss Universe pageant again next year after mistakenly crowning Miss Colombia as the winner, the error has had him feeling guilty, knowing it may follow him through the rest of his career. But Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutiérrez – now probably the most famous Miss Universe runner up — visited him on his talk show on Tuesday of this week to offer forgiveness, and of course a hard time. One clip from the show sees Harvey telling her, “I cast you into a spotlight, a place that I never intended to.” Gutierrez explained, “It was like a nightmare — watching the videos — I couldn’t believe that happened to me.” But then acknowledged, “I already moved on, this is our destiny, that’s why we are here.” She joked that she had been telling others of her affection for the host, but had second thoughts after the big mistake. Harvey thanked her for her forgiveness and they went on to discuss their favorite viral memes regarding the incident.

Natalie Portman, Matt Damon and Javier Bardem also appear in Internet clips.

Bom chicka wow wow. David Simon and the revered team behind The Wire are reuniting for Simon’s new series The Deuce.  HBO has ordered the series, which will star James Franco and is entrenched in the legal issues surrounding the porn industry and prostitution, the ferocity of the sweeping cocaine endemic, the rise of HIV, and the real estate market making its way to the turbulent scene in 1970s/1980s New York.  The series is inspired in part by the real life twin brothers, Vincent and Frankie Martino, who were major players in the explosive and lucrative sex industry at the time.  Mr. Franco will play the twins, and is accompanied by an all-star cast, including Maggie Gyllenhaal who plays “Candy,” a Times Square hooker.
