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: Jerry Springer situation Hello Shirley, Steve, and the morning crew, I recently graduated from college. My youngest brother died this year (who was only 19 and married) and I decided to move in with my mother to help pay the bills and be there for emotional support. As soon as I moved in I knew it was a mistake. My mother quit her job and now stays home and smokes weed and drink all the time. To make things worse, late at night someone always picks her up. I did a little investigating and found out that she has been sleeping around with her deceased son’s wife. When I found this out I told my oldest brother and he admitted to sleeping with our brother’s wife too. He also told me that he knew our mom was sleeping with her. Now I am devastated and want to leave the house, but since I pay all the bills I have no money to get my own place. What should I do?
