It may have been Steve Harvey’s birthday Friday, but he fulfilled a single mother’s wishes.
The talk show host invited Latasha, a mother of four, to his show. She recounted to Steve Harvey and rapper TI what a bad year she had. For starters, she lost her job as a result of caring for her asthmatic son. Which had a domino effect on her living situation; her house and car were soon repossessed. Forcing Latasha to split up her four kids among family members until she got back on her feet.
Just when Latasha’s luck was starting to change, she’s attacked coming home from work. A two-hour commute on the bus, BTW.
Not one to see his Capricorn sister suffer, Steve Harvey presented her with a $10,000 check from Green Dot Reloadable Prepaid Visa Card. Still not satisfied that Latasha has to live in a dangerous neighborhood where she’s liable of getting attacked again, he hooked up with Apartments.com to give her a $15,000 check. A full year’s worth of rent for a safer place.
TI came through by getting his friends at Ford to donate a car to Latasha. No more two hour commutes on the bus.
Out of all the surprises Latasha reunited with her four kids is by far the best. Check it out in the clip below, but fair warning it’ll make you look like this.
