Transcript for Steve Harvey Speaks Out on Miss Universe Mistake
Welcome back to "Good morning America." Steve Harvey finally speaking out on camera for the first time about the miss universe mistake. And coming face to face with the winner and the woman that he accidentally crowned. ABC's T.J. Holmes has all the details. Hey. Look Lara any man who has wronged a woman knows you have to face the music, sit her down and say I'm sorry. Steve is about to get that chance for the woman whose dreams he made come true and go away all within three minutes. They're about to sit down and talk it out. Ladies and gentlemen, would you please welcome the brand new 2015 miss universe from the Philippines here! This morning Steve Harvey is breaking his silence. I felt horrible for both of them. So much I want to say. But I'm truly sorry. Really I wish we all could have gotten it right that night. I want you to know that. Apologizing on camera for the first time for the gasp heard all around the world at December's miss universe pageant. Ms. Universe 2015 is Colombia! I have to apologize. The first runner-up is Colombia. Miss universe 2015 is Philippines! The talk show host faces the music head on in a two day special on the Steve Harvey show. I took it on myself to do what I thought was right for miss Philippines. I would do it again to be honest with you. He admits the emotional toll it has taken on him personally. People don't understand the damage of social media. Death threats against your family. I can't let my kids go nowhere. I was difficult. And reveals the one person who saw him through sleepless nights after the pageant. My girl got it with me. My wife got it with me. She was the best. Miss universe offers some relief after Harvey's very public fall from grace. Don't beat yourself up anymore. Let's move forward and be happy. Okay. Cool. It's not what you were waiting for. You're going to hear from miss Colombia. There was backlash against her saying that was her proud moment and I'm forever the real miss universe. He said that miss Colombia would not return his phone calls after the pageant. She said she would like to share the crown. We had miss universe on. She didn't want to. Let's not do that. Come up with something else. We also had a judge who said it was unanimous it was miss Philippines. I'm sure Steve would love to hear her say it's okay. We all would. Been wanting to move on for a while. Yeah. Please. Tomorrow powerball how about that George?
