In an effort to redeem one of the biggest mistakes in the history of live television, Steve Harvey invited Miss Colombia to his daytime talk show to apologize for embarrassing her on national TV.

While they did discuss the more positive aspects and highlights of the pageant, they had to touch on the blunder that “stripped” Miss Colombia of her title.  Ariadna Gutierrez, the name of Miss Colombia, was polite in her response.

“You have to learn how to read cards,” she said, chuckling. “Because it was on the card. You wanted me to win.”

The two went on to reconcile with Steve offering another apology to the beauty queen.

Hopefully he considers taking Miss Colombia’s advice and learns to read a bit more clearly (or invest in some reading glasses), as he’s next year’s host for the Miss Universe pageant.

Check out their reunion below:
