Ordinarily, celebrity mothers enjoy spending as much time in the spotlight as their children. However, the case appears to be different with Doris Bridges. The septuagenarian is one of the few celebrity family members who we know to be very camera-shy.

In a bid to keep away from the paparazzi as much as she can, Doris has purposefully kept almost all details of her private life away from the public.

Meet Doris Bridges’ Daughter Marjorie Harvey

Marjorie Elaine Bridges-Woods, otherwise known as Marjorie Harvey is a famous American designer, internet personality, and fashion blogger who stepped into the limelight after her marriage to one of the world’s leading American comedian, producer, actor, and television host, Steve Harvey.

She was born on October 10, 1964, and is currently 59 years old. Marjorie spent the bulk of her childhood in Memphis where she attended the University of Memphis, Tennessee. However, she could not finish her education and dropped out of college to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer. She toured around the world, attending different fashion shows to improve her skills.

Although most people believe her fame to have come after her marriage to Steve, Marjorie was already well-established before then. She is the founder of The Lady Loves Culture, a fashion and lifestyle brand. She also owns an online fashion store that sells exotic handbags. And after her marriage to Steve, they both co-founded the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation, a charity organization that provides young people with educational and empowerment skills.

She Has Been Married Two Times Before

Before Marjorie met and married Steve she had already been married twice to two different men. Her first marriage was to Jimmy L. Townsend, a young man who was 23 years younger than her. The marriage between the duo was going quite well until Townsend was arrested for drug dealing and sentenced to life imprisonment. While he was in prison, Marjorie filed for a divorce and moved on to her second marriage.

A while after her first marriage ended, Marjorie got married a second time to a man named Darnel Woods. Although this second marriage lasted a bit longer and even resulted in the birth of their three kids, it ended in a manner quite similar to the first. Just like Townsend, Marjorie’s second husband was charged with several drug cases. He was imprisoned and his properties were frozen.

Marjorie is currently in her third marriage and judging by the look of things, this promises to be her final marriage. She and Steve Harvey met in 2007 at one of Steve’s comedy shows. Steve admitted that it was love at first sight for him, and their relationship kicked off almost immediately.

About 6 years down the line (in 2014) Steve revealed to his fans that he had popped the big question while they were vacationing in Mexico, and 3 years afterward they tied the knot in a low-key ceremony attended by close friends and relatives. The two families came together and became one big, blended family.
