As we already know, Steve Harvey's interview with Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach and who he thought was Miss Universe, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, was an emotional one.

It really tugged at our hearts, and you'll see why soon enough.

But, it wasn't all tears. There were some laughs, too, and this time, it wasn't the funnyman delivering all the jokes. 

"How do you feel about the way I handled the situation?" the host asked Miss Colombia in a sneak peek of part two of his interview, airing tomorrow.

"What were your thoughts? Because it happened to you. Genuinely, how did you feel I handled the situation?"

Seeming a little flustered by the question at first, Gutierrez decided to respond with a crack that no one could help but laugh at.

"You have to learn how to read cards, because it was on the card," she joked, drawing chuckles from the crowd. The brunette beauty then added, "You wanted me to win."

Harvey yelled, "Yes! I wanted you to win. I can leave it at that."

Gutierrez continued, "I was laughing. If you see the videos, I was laughing, because I thought you were about to make a joke," which Harvey noted would've been the "worst damn joke I ever written in my life."


Their sit-down had an emotional start, with Harvey getting choked up while apologizing to the beauty pageant contestant for his flub remembered around the world.

"You're the one person that I really wanted to talk to," he began to tell her with tears in his eyes.

"Because of a mistake I've made, I cast you into a spotlight, a place, that I never intended to, that I would not want happen to anybody. I just want to say how sorry I am. I really am. I'm beyond sorry for what happened that night and that it was you. At the end of the day, I hope we walk away from this with something special."  

Don't forget to catch part two of "Miss Universe: The Truth" on Steve Harvey tomorrow.
