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: Home wrecking mistress Hey Steve, Shirley, and Tommy. To try and make a long story short, my mother and my step-father have been married since 1997. They separated in about 1999 or 2000. After they separated, he ended up back at his mom’s house. Then out of nowhere comes this floozy, who was pregnant by another married man. She had no respect for me, my mother, or my little sister, who by the way is his blood child by my mom. She used to sleep in the bed with him at his mom’s house when my sister and I would come to spend the night, and he would have us sleeping on the floor. So this floozy has been living off of him for about 10 years now. I never liked her, but I got along with her for peace’s sake. She would say little slick things about me, my sister and my mom, who never liked her either for the simple fact that she is living off of her husband. My mom passed away in 2007. And since then, this floozy has really been showing her tail. I’m about two boulders away from hopping across the river and pushing her in and drowning her. So now, I just found out that my little sister has to go live with them in order to go to school this year. I told the both of them that she better not come home on the weekends and tell me anything that that woman has been doing to her or I will have to pay the both of them a visit. Help me Steve, Shirley, somebody. I’m not trying to go to jail.
