The Maury Show has been known to reach out to celebrities on social media, but this takes the cake. Maury Povich has been hosting his talk show, or some variation of it, for nearly 30 years. His topics have evolved throughout the seasons, but Povich is internationally known for his signature lines, “You are the father” or “You are NOT the father” to his guests seeking paternity tests. The 80-year-old is a cultural icon who still gets millions of viewers who still tune into his tabloid-style talk show, but off-camera the host has a social media team that keeps tongues wagging.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is preparing for the birth of her first child, an event that she’s been wanting for quite some time. The 37-year-old will be welcoming her little one, “JP,” into the world very soon, and Maury wanted to help celebrate by sending Williams’ fiancé Dennis McKinley a special gift.
McKinley shared a photo of a baby onesie that featured Maury Povich’s face on it with the words, “You are the father.” They also included a note that reads, “Porsha and Dennis, I wanted to celebrate the upcoming arrival of your baby girl with a small gift from The Maury Show. 🙂 Best, Maury Povich.” McKinley seemed to enjoy the present and captioned the photo, “@officialmauryshow Maury man you petty 😂😂”
Recently, when Cardi B. and Offset broke up because of his rumored infidelities, the show reached out to the rapper on Twitter to offer up their services. “.@iamcardib if you ever need a Lie Detector Test or have more relationship drama…you know you can always call Uncle Maury!”
