Aside from the occasional slip-up, Steve Harvey is usually a total pro on the TV screen.

But even the Family Feud host couldn't keep it together when he reunited with The Original Kings of Comedy to honor their late co-star Bernie Mac, who died in 2008 of complications from an inflammatory lung disease.

D.L. Hughley and Cedric the Entertainer joined the daytime host on his talk show Monday and had some moving surprises in store for the deceased actor's high school sweetheart Rhonda.

The comedians were visibly emotional announcing a proclamation from the city of Chicago and Mayor Rahm Emanuel that November 14 would be "Bernie Mac Day" in the Windy City.

After taking a moment to collect himself, Harvey then turned to Mike Epps via satellite from Bernie and Rhonda's alma mater in Chicago — who revealed the school would be renaming its auditorium in honor of the comedian.

Just like Harvey, Rhonda was choked up and held back tears as she thanked those responsible, saying:

Bernie Mac Street Naming Ceremony 2012

Bernie Mac now has his own street, and we couldn't be happier!

The City of Chicago honored the late Kings of Comedy legend Tuesday by naming a one-block section of West 69th street Bernie Mac Street. The area in Englewood is near where Bernie grew up and attended school.

Mac’s widow, Rhonda McCullough, his daughter Je’Niece, and Jesse Jackson were among the 200 or so to attend the dedication ceremony.

Cheerleaders from his elementary school performed a routine, and Chicago comedians Reggie Reg and Tony Sculfield shared their memories of Mac and his work.

His daughter very poignantly stated:

Bernie Mac's Widow Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

The wife of the late comedian Bernie Mac, Rhonda McCullough, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the comedian's dermatologist Rene M. Earles.

Rhonda claims that a few weeks before Mac's death in 2008, Dr. Earles failed to recognize any indications that Bernie had potential respiratory failure.

She alleges that when Bernie had gotten sick and seen his doctor, Earles kept him at the Chicago clinic for several hours, rather than calling an ambulance.

Earles denies the claims, saying that when he saw that Mac "appeared weak, had a low-grade fever and a rash," he was quick to take action.

After giving him an injection for a cold, he informed Mac's personal physician that he had been diagnosed with pneumonia and instructed Bernie to head to a hospital.

It does seem odd that he wouldn't call an ambulance for Bernie when he was THAT sick, but who knows what really happened.

We hope Bernie's widow gets some peace.
