00:00
Marjorie Harvey was involved in one of Memphis's biggest drug busts.
She was married to two different drug dealers before marrying Steve Harvey.
Marjorie caught Steve Harvey's attention in 1990, but they didn't immediately get together.
Marjorie's past as a drug dealer contrasts with her current luxurious lifestyle.
Marjorie Harvey was involved in her first husband's drug dealing activities, and despite being investigated by the FBI and DEA, she refused to cooperate and potentially incriminate herself.
02:02
Marjorie was married to her first husband, Jim Townsend, who was a former drug dealer.
She participated in Jim's illegal activities and was considered the queen of Memphis's underground drug hoarding ring.
Marjorie had two children with Jim before he was sentenced to life in prison.
Despite the FBI and DEA investigating her, Marjorie refused to snitch on her husband and risk getting herself locked up.
Marjorie Harvey's second husband, Darnell Woods, was a part of Memphis Tennessee's biggest drug sting and a member of the infamous Memphis mob.
04:06
Darnell Woods was a drug dealer and part of the Memphis mob, involved in a drug sting and indicted on several charges.
Marjorie divorced her first husband, Jim Townsend, and married Darnell Woods, with whom she had a daughter named Lori.
Marjorie eventually divorced Darnell and got back together with Steve Harvey.
Marjorie Harvey's first husband, Jim Townsend, claims in his tell-all book that she was involved in illegal activities and convinced him to lie to their daughter while he was in prison.
08:12
Jim Townsend, Marjorie Harvey's ex-husband, alleges that she was involved in criminal activities.
Marjorie convinced Jim to lie to their daughter for four years about his whereabouts while he was in prison.
Jim's book reveals that Marjorie's mother thought he committed an unpardonable sin by telling their daughter the truth.
Despite the tell-all book, Jim's children, Morgan and Jason, seem unbothered and have been spending time with him recently.
00:00Marjorie they coming for you sis Steve
00:03Harvey's wife hasn't said much
00:05throughout the years allowing her
00:07position as Steve's third wife to be the
00:09center of anything Marjorie related
00:10however Marjorie Harvey's reputation as
00:13Steve's stylish arm candy has come under
00:16Fire and her Highly Questionable past
00:18has surely spun the block ready to
00:20release fire any given day now a drug
00:23hoarding cocaine dealing deceitful pass
00:25full of deception lies and betrayal
00:28hopping from one Kingpin to the next
00:31Marjorie once found herself in the midst
00:33of one of memphis's biggest drug busts
00:36to date but is now living lavishly far
00:39from the ruins of that particular
00:41lifestyle so how did the first lady of
00:44Memphis go from being Queen of the drug
00:46lords to securing Steve Harvey's bag
00:49straight from the likes of Toby Marjorie
00:51Harvey's rags to Rich's story may be an
00:54even bigger one than Steve's when Steve
00:57decided to settle down for the third
00:59time what his now wife Marjorie in 2007
01:01he surely believed he'd secure the woman
01:04of his dreams and perhaps he did but for
01:07Marjorie she surely hit the jackpot
01:10possibly for the third time just in a
01:13much different way a less incriminating
01:15way it's been about 16 years since
01:18Marjory uttered the words I do in over
01:2130 since being entwined with her first
01:23husband one of Memphis City's biggest
01:25drug dealers as well as her second his
01:29alleged cousin according to Steve
01:31Marjorie first caught his attention in
01:341990 after showing up late to one of his
01:37stand-up shows upon Landing eyes on her
01:40Steve lessened the gap between his thick
01:42lips and the mic and reportedly posted I
01:45don't know who this is but I'm gonna
01:47marry her Steve was serious serious but
01:50Marjorie was hesitant after all she was
01:53still very much married according to
01:55Marjorie she and Steve dated for a bit
01:58but the night outs and gut-filled
02:00butterflies dwindled as time went on
02:02soon enough the phone calls and
02:04Communications stopped all together and
02:06the pursuance of Marjorie came to an
02:08abrupt end with Steve citing his lack of
02:11financial stability as to why he and she
02:13were no more as Steve was getting his
02:16money up Marjorie was busy being a ride
02:18or die for Jim Townsend her first
02:21husband and former drug dealer who'd run
02:23the streets of Memphis Tennessee
02:24Marjorie right there along with him but
02:27don't be fooled or a fool Marjorie
02:30wasn't just some innocent bystander
02:32attending to her two babies while her
02:34husband made money his way let Jim tell
02:37it she was right there along with him
02:39participating in his Antics Jim Jimmy
02:42Townsend was sentenced to life in prison
02:44back in the late 90s after attempting to
02:47purchase cocaine the size of an average
02:4912 year old boy but before he'd be
02:51escorted to the human equivalent of a
02:53dog pound he and Marjorie Were King and
02:56Queen queen of memphis's underground
02:57drug hoarding ring the fancy cars and
03:00big Bank lured Marjorie right on in and
03:02before she knew it she not only married
03:05Jim but would end up conceiving two of
03:07his kids Morgan and Jason contrary to
03:10what many fans of Steve's may have
03:12believed that marjorie's three children
03:14all came from one man who isn't Steve in
03:17case you weren't aware her first two
03:19children are in fact the offsprings of
03:22her first husband Jim Townsend with Jim
03:24looking at life in the penitentiary he
03:26and his wife were in this thing for the
03:28long run and absolutely no one was going
03:31to get Marjorie to snitch on her man not
03:33the FBI or the DEA who investigated
03:36Marjory time and time again believing
03:38that she too was involved in Jim's
03:40illegal activities they even threatened
03:43him by telling him they'd arrest
03:44Marjorie if she didn't cooperate Jim
03:47wasn't about to Spill the Beans to the
03:49feds and get the mother of his children
03:50locked up right along with him opting to
03:53not give away information that could
03:54possibly get her in prison but that
03:57wouldn't last too long it'd only take a
03:59good 30 plus years or so for Jimmy to
04:01say to hell with everything imma speak
04:04my truth since you want to finesse your
04:06way into a Millionaire's heart and try
04:07to keep my kids from me but before we
04:10expose the meat of the entree we gotta
04:12talk about marjorie's second husband an
04:14alleged cousin to her first Darnell

04:20Harvey's real daddy just five years into
04:22Jim's sentence Marjorie then pregnant
04:24with baby number two got tired of
04:27sticking by her felon Bay and opted out
04:29of that marriage and into another this
04:31time what yet another Kingpin something

04:45his brothers amongst other relatives

05:08being busted and indicted on several
05:10charges including conspiracy to possess
05:12and distribute kilos of cocaine with the
05:15intent to distribute marijuana but
05:17before Darnell met the same fate as his

05:22welcomed their baby girl Lori in 1997
05:25and would end up tying the knot three
05:27years later before divorcing in 2001.
05:30hold time Marjorie was with Darnell she
05:32still kept tabs on Jim Townsend and vice

06:07financial and mental state to take care
06:09of a woman of marjorie's caliber he now
06:11was the star of his own TV show The
06:14Steve Harvey Show and decided the time

06:46divorce papers and even more blindsided
06:49when she discovered he was sneaking
06:51around with Lady heroin for Lord knows
06:53how long not only that but Mary claims
06:56that Marjorie convinced her son Winton
06:58to cut all ties with her and now has her

08:53out this excerpt the site of Morgan
08:55always brought joy to my heart she was
08:57truly the apple of my eye and the only
08:59reason I hadn't killed her mother as
09:01Morgan couldn't understand what was
09:03happening she turned her attention back
09:05to me and locked eyes with me giving me
09:07a look that said come and get me Daddy
09:09there were three things that I hated and
09:11regretted the first was the abortion
09:13issue which I will explain later the
09:16second was the fact that I allowed
09:17Marjorie to convince me to lie to Morgan
09:20for four years telling her that I was in
09:22Lewisburg working a job while I was in
09:24prison Morgan was eight when I finally
09:26said to hell with Marjorie and her
09:28mother and told her the truth Marjorie
09:30and her heartless mother thought I had
09:32committed an unpardonable sin by setting
09:34things straight with Morgan but telling
09:36her the truth was one of our most
09:37intimate and memorable phone
09:39conversations the little eight-year-old
09:41rebuked me for lying to her and she made
09:43me promise that I would never lie to her
09:45again Jim is not playing about this
09:48tell-all book and by the looks of it his
09:50kids Morgan and Jason don't give a hoot
09:52about their biological daddy spill and
09:54the beans about their mama because from
