A former Elkin High School homecoming queen is questioning circumstances surrounding her personal relationship with her boyfriend on the “Steve Harvey” show on Monday.

According to a producer from the show, Harvey discusses “deal breakers” — things that pop up in relationships that force people to question it…and make them wonder if they should stay, or walk away.

Ashae Reagan, 28, will chime in and discuss if her boyfriend who spends 99 percent of his time with his best friend (who’s a female) is a relationship deal breaker.

Though Reagan was tight-lipped on her boyfriend’s too-close-for-comfort relationship (citing a gag by the show), she indicated that the general topic needs to be discussed.

“It’s important to me, and important to a lot of other people,” said Reagan.

“Steve Harvey” airs at 2 p.m. on WXII/Channel 12.

Reagan was born and raised in Elkin and attended Elkin High School becoming its homecoming queen in 2003.

“I’m an all-Elkin girl,” said Reagan.

Reagan graduated from Appalachian State with a degree in health promotions. She is the daughter of Virgil and Veronica of Thurmond.

Reagan didn’t make homecoming last Friday because she lives in Miami shifting between casting calls, finding being her own agent is a best fit for now.

According to Reagan, her cousin, Ellie Hooper, of Elkin was named maid of honor at Elkin High School’s homecoming held on Oct. 4.

“I’m so happy for her. It’s exciting,” said Reagan.

Reagan is an actress and model and has appeared on shows such as “Burn Notice,” “The Glades,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Little Miss Perfect,” “South Beach Tow” and “Magic City” on Starz. Reagan will appear in the movie “The Jersey Shore Massacre” coming out in 2014.

When asked if opting into the show has caused a relationship jolt with her boyfriend, Reagan said he is clueless until it airs.

“Check with me after Monday,” she said.
