"This is Rich Liss from Orlando, Fla.," Liss said. "Do you still love me baby?"

Harvey took a few moments to gather himself. "Hey man," he said. "I love you."

Liss and his wife Becky helped get Harvey on his feet back when he was a struggling comedian, running a carpet cleaning business.

"I was struggling," Harvey said. "I didn't have nothing. And these people took me in."

Harvey first found success as the host of Showtime at the Apollo, later getting his own The Steve Harvey Show and later taking on the Family Feud role.
