In an email memo that was leaked from Steve Harvey's office earlier today on Robert Feder's media blog, the celebrity host was quoted as telling his office staff "do not approach me."

"Do not come to my dressing room unless invited," the memo says. "Do not open my dressing room door. IF YOU OPEN MY DOOR, EXPECT TO BE REMOVED. I want all the ambushing to stop now. That includes TV staff." Such harsh words from Harvey come as a surprising contrast to his typical on-screen persona, which is typically inviting and joking.

The memo goes on to note that Harvey will only be talking to his staff members if he so chooses to, saying "do not approach me while I'm in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly. Do not wait in any hallway to speak to me. I hate being ambushed." Appointments are also mentioned to be an option.

The memo even goes a step further saying that previously "I have been taken advantage of by my lenient policy in the past. This ends now. NO MORE." Contrasting the email's tone, an office source who spoke with ET says that "he's very polite, very respectful. He's not rude to anyone." The source goes on to say that "We tape so long in a day. We go so many hours. And you often see him walking in the hallway to and from the stage and it's not really the time to stop him to have a conversation."

Harvey has since commented on the entire situation, saying that "Look man, I'm in my makeup chair, they walk in the room. I'm having lunch, they walk in, they don't knock. I'm in the hallway, I'm getting ambushed by people with friends that come to the show and having me sign this and do this. I just said, 'Wait a minute.' And in hindsight, I probably should've handled it a little bit differently."

What do you think about this whole mess? Whose side do you think is in the wrong? Let us know in the comments below.
