Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: The truth always comes out Dear morning crew, About 24 years ago when I was out there buck wild on a Friday night drinking that crown royal and smoking on a dime bag of good weed, I went to a house party and met this lady. We danced the night away, bumping and grinding and made plans to meet at the Holiday Inn. Afterwards, I was too high to drive so I crashed the car. The next day my friends dogged me hard about how ugly she was. Two day later I meet her sober and oh!! You can fill in the blanks. she is so ugly you can use her picture to stop people from stuttering! Fast forward to now and my mom called me chewing me out like never before, yelling screaming, cursing at me. The reason was this ugly girl is now an employee for my mother and she told her about that night. Now my wife of 17 years is cracking jokes, along with the whole family. I cannot believe this is happening. It was a bad night more than 20 years ago. I know some dirt on the people who are cracking jokes, but I honor the code. However this is starting to get old. Please help. Thank you!! Sincerely, Tried to hide it
