Steve Harvey: Okay! Welcome back! Welcome back to “Steve Harvey”! I want to thank Nigel Tipton, real-life ghostbuster, for bringing some of his FINEST to the show! And I apologize for conducting the interview from the parking lot! I don’t mess with no ghosts! [ he chuckles ] Okay, let’s move on to Expert Tips! [ graphics ] Halloween is only a couple of days away, and I gotta confess: I don’t like it! Folks sneaking around and grabbing candy, when we got enough CRIME and DIABETES out there as it is! At my house, we do the same thing every year: Turn off all the lights, leave a bucket of Steve Harvey Pocket Squares out on the front porch, and then me and my wife go upstairs, drink Henessey, and explore each other with al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” massage oil! But I know LOTS of y’all love Halloween, so this is why we have my guest today. Here to give us some costume ideas, is the owner of Spooky city — your one-stop Halloween store — Please welcome Mr. Jake Pickler![ Jake Pickler comes out ]
