OVERBOOKED: Guests at the Valentino show in Paris on Tuesday included the usual flock of socialites, and more unexpectedly, U.S. comedian and syndicated talk-show host Steve Harvey, who was accompanying his wife, Marjorie Bridges.

“I’ve just come to see if maybe we can not buy everything. That’s all,” Harvey deadpanned. “It’s not going good at all. Not at all. I’m losing. Being here, I can actually watch the losses.”

Harvey, who was attending Paris Fashion Week for the second time, said he was still blown away by the scale of the catwalk shows. “We went to the Chanel show. I mean, if this was in the States, this would be like NASCAR. All these girls would have a sponsor,” he said.

The couple was enjoying a vacation before Harvey returns to juggling his hit daytime show “Steve Harvey,” game show “Family Feud,” his radio program and writing a follow-up to his bestselling self-help book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.”

“I’m debating on whether it’s going to be a relationship book or about principles of success,” he said. “My wife told me I can’t take any more jobs.”

Guests including Ciara, Olivia Palermo, Astrid Muñoz, Elettra Wiedemann and Victor Alfaro also took in the show.
