When I first interviewed her a couple of years ago, Karrine Steffans was making the transition from Hip-Hop ho to legitimate Hollywood actress. She was then enjoying her big screen debut as Larenz Tateís wife in A Man Apart, an action-adventure flick starring Vin Diesel. During that tame tete-a-tete, she never let on about the sordid, suicidal, sexually-depraved, alcohol and drug-addicted life she had been leading, despite being a single-mom. Nor did she discuss bottoming-out after an overdose which left her broke, blacklisted and living in a car with her little boy.
Because Karrine was such a shameless name-dropper, I distinctly remember repeatedly asking her about all of her famous friends. But every inquiry led to a very dull dead-end. Now, she has just published a tell-all autobiography, Confessions of a Video Vixen, which sits high atop most best seller lists. In it, she admits to sleeping with Puff Daddy, DMX, Xzibit, Jay-Z, Ja Rule, Doctor Dre, Ice-T, Bobby Brown, Usher, Shaquille OíNeal and Vin Diesel, to name a few.

So, I figured it was high time I track Karrine down again to find out why she lied to me the first go-round. Furthermore, I needed to get the lowdown on what life in the fast lane had been like for this naughty girl affectionately referred to as ďSuperheadĒ by the gangsta rappers and the rest of the long list of famous lovers who shared her bed.


KW: Why were you so very tight-lipped about the nature of your relationships with all the celebrities you knew the first time we spoke?

KS: Well, that wasnít the appropriate time. We were talking about A Man Apart. Everything has its own time and space. And there are some people that I mention in Confessions, and some that I still didnít.

KW: Yeah, like in the book, you hid the identity of a very famous lover of yours you called Papa. Care to share his name now?

KS: Iím still not going to tell you.

KW: Why not, when youíve confessed to sleeping with so many others?

KS: At this point itís inappropriate, because of a promise I made to him that he would remain anonymous.

KW: How about a hint?

KS: What I will say for my readers is that Confessions has a really big clue about who he is.

KW: What has been the reaction of the lovers you did name to the book?

KS: Thereís been no reaction. The celebrities named in the book are fine.

Itís kind of surprised me that people find what I said so amazing, because people who are inside of the industry know all the stuff that I couldíve said.

KW: But letís take someone like Ja Rule, who has a wife and kids. I would imagine that he might be very upset.

KS: Iím sure itís uncomfortable. But, no, heís not upset. This is not news to him, or his wife, or his family. Itís not like his wife just found out.

She knows her husband and that I was not the only girl. He had hundreds at that time, and Iím sure thousands over the years as he traveled the world.

So, itís not like anyoneís surprised, even if itís uncomfortable.

KW: Do you have any misgivings about tarnishing the image of so many icons?

KS: Iím surprised that people think theyíre important. To me theyíre not.

Theyíre just people you run across. The names I gave away in Vixen are throwaway names. Theyíre nobodies compared to who else I have in my phone book.

KW: Like who?

KS: There are some people who are very powerful who I will never name, because I want to be able to work in this town when Iím done. Thatís why itís easy to give you throwaway names like Jay-Z. Iím not in the music business. I donít work for Def Jam.

KW: So, you see Jay-Z as a nobody?


KS: Not that heís a nobody, just nobody special.

KW: Did you mean to imply that Puff Daddy, I mean, Diddy and Xzibit are gay when you mentioned their taking you to a gay nightclub?

KS: Iím not implying anything. That was an experience of mine. Iím just saying what happened and what was said. Any conclusions would have to be drawn by the readers.

KW: Did you really sleep with Vin Diesel? Iíve interviewed him several times, and heís always sounded like such a gentleman. He even told me he wasnít a womanizer, but that he was saving himself for the right woman.

KS: [laughs] Really? Thatís a load of [expletive]. He wasnít saving himself when I was with him. It bothers me that people find it necessary to paint pictures. Truth and honesty is my thing.

KW: Iím gonna ask him about you the next time I speak to him. Why did you put so many sexy photos of yourself scantily-clad in the book, if youíve put that lifestyle behind you?

KS: Iím not uncomfortable about anything Iíve put in the book. Itís just the truth. Those pictures are fine. Theyíre pictures from my past, of things that I have done with people I have known. Theyíre from stages of my life, and all of that is relevant to this book.

KW: The nicest picture is the one of you and your son, Naiim. Was he scarred by all the two of you went through? How is he doing?

KS: All these things happened a long time ago. My son is seven, and he doesnít remember any of that stuff. For the last four years, heís spent every day with me. Thankfully, I got my wild ways over with while he was still basically a newborn. He was two and three years-old.

KW: Is there any truth to the rumor that youíre now dating Bill Maher of Politically Incorrect?

KS: Absolutely.

KW: How is that relationship?

KS: Wonderful! Itís the best Iíve ever had?

KW: Does he have a good relationship with your son, too?

KS: Nope. They donít have one. They donít need one. Itís unnecessary. Why would I introduce my son to a man Iíve only known for four months, no matter how great the relationship is. If Bill and I are together half a year, maybe Iíll consider it. But even then, itís still dating. Thereís no need for them to meet each other.

KW: So, does your son then have a relationship with that rapper whoís his biological father?

KS: They donít have a relationship. They donít know each other. They never have.

KW: Do you consider yourself totally through with that self-destructive lifestyle?

KS: I havenít spoken to any of those people, for the most part, for over four years. There are some Iím still cool with. Weíll see each other and speak, say, ďHow you doiní?Ē and keep going.

KW: What enabled you to move on from playing the party girl?

KS: Most people grow. The person youíre reading about in that book is 21.

Iím 27 now. You would hope that I would grow and expand and change just from the natural progression of life. And thatís what Iíve done.

KW: Why kiss and tell?

KS: It was easy for me to write about it, because Iím so far removed from that character. The person I was in that book was a character. Sheís not even who I am today. People who know me, recognize a definite difference in my poise and in my personality, because Iíve grown.

KW: I agree you donít sound like the same person, but maybe you had drug problems when I spoke to you.

KS: At that time, no. I was already out of that lifestyle by the time I talked to you.

KW: Have you burned too many bridges to return to acting?

KS: No, I have no interest in it at all. It doesnít move me whatsoever.

KW: Why not?

KS: Because Iím a power fanatic. I like to own things, and have them be mine. Acting doesnít belong to you, if youíre not the writer or the director.

KW: So, what will you work on next, then?

KS: The movie version of this book. Theyíre bidding on the rights to it right now.

KW: You recently had a tiff with Tyra Banks during the taping of her new talk show. Do you care to share your side of it?

KS: There are a few things that tend to infuriate me. One is ignorance, because I have become accustomed to speaking to very intelligent people like Gore Vidal and Al Franken on a regular basis, since dating Bill Maher.

Therefore, when Iím in an interview with someone who is not intelligent, but flat-out ignorant, idiotic and stupid, or just an ass, it really gives me a headache.

KW: So, how do you deal with jerks like that?

KS: Iíve walked out on interviews, when theyíre so beneath me and what Iím trying to say. And then there are people like Tyra who are hypocrites. Women especially, who have slept their way through their whole careers. And itís not a secret within the Hollywood circle.

KW: So, Tyraís been around the block.

KS: Iíve always heard about it from men weíve both slept with.

KW: Iíd think that the two of you should have had a great conversation in that case, swapping stories.

KS: No, not 15 years later, now that she has her own talk show where sheís well-groomed, all made up, and has on a $5,000 wig. Donít get me wrong, Tyraís done well for herself. You have to applaud her for all that sheís achieved, coming from that model world, and expanding, which is wonderful.

But letís not pretend that you havenít done some of the people and things that Iíve done.

KW: So, Tyra didnít want to Ďfess up?

KS: Anyone in that position, in an interviewerís position, to do it well, should always remain objective. Thatís part of the job.

KW: So, you feel that she attacked you instead of interviewing you?

KS: When someone talks to me, and theyíre personally attacking me, because thereís someone in my book that sheís been with, because of the people that sheís slept with that we have in common. When youíre making me seem like the bad one, like only Iíve slept around, like only Iíve dated famous people, then I find it necessary to say what youíve done. We should just be honest.

KW: So, she made it personal?

KS: Yeah, and then I felt the need to get personal back.

KW: So, are you saying Tyra slept her way to the top?

KS: I have a list of names of people thatí sheís been with, including women.

Letís not go there, because I am the truth-teller. And Iíll tell it all. So, hopefully, she realizes that now, and sheíll stay clear out of my way.

KW: Do you hope your book will warn young girls of the sexual exploitation, drugs and other pitfalls of appearing in gangstaí videos which await them when they arrive in Hollywood.

KS: Yes, thatís whatís happening. Girls are getting it. Theyíre understanding that the life they thought existed in Hollywood doesnít really exist. It just doesnít. Iím not just saying that because my past is a little skewed and I had a hard time. Even now that my life is great, and Iím way better off physically, financially and emotionally, I can still look at it and say, this place is such bull-[expletive]! And it is.

KW: Where do you go from here, professionally?

KS: Iím just going to continue what Iíve been doing, which is writing. The next book is the paperback version of Confessions, which will have more information. Then, Iím writing a novel for next summer, I believe. And Iíll continue to write. I already started a book on relationships, on being a woman, and how we mess up our relationships trying to be too independent. I am a writer. Video Vixen was not a fluke. This is what I do, and itís my job now.

I actually liked this woman when I saw her on the Suze Orman show. Her honestly was downright brutal.

But her beating down Tyra?:eek: Downright balls........

If Bill Maher can find something good in her then I guess I can too.
I'm sure he admires her brutal honesty.
I don't see a reason to diss Tyra though. Tyra might have slept around but she didn't have to name names in her private affairs to the public to be where she's at today in life.
That is why Tyra can look down on "Superhead" even if she thinks she's helping girls out.

Souds like Tyra started the mess and that's why Karrine went after her.

Karrine should have known that Tyra was going to do that. It ain't no damn picnic on that show all the time. This interview we're looking at now isn't even very nice to "Superhead". She should be ready for any backlash or an assumptions about her and the book. Karrine can go after her but if she thinks she has a right to tell people about Tyra's private life then she has another thing coming.

She can make up anything and some people will believe her.:tape: Karrine has been called out several times on the radio for lying about certain instances in her book and each time she's punked out.

Tyra must of hit a nerve. :lol: Supahead tried to spin her story like she was trying to help young girls, but we all know she is in it for the MONEY. If she wanted to leave the lifestyle behind why is she hugged up on Bill Maher(#1 playa and womanizer)? Plus she's already signed on for a second book and with her xxx video with Mr. Marcus coming out pretty soon I guess she's going to extend her 15 minutes.:lol:

Are you kidding me? LOL. Bill Maher is such a perve. He sleeps with anything that walks. The fact that Karrine thinks hooking up with Bill Maher makes her look intelligent is hilarious. :lol:

Really?!? I have had a little crush on Bill for a minute, you saying he'll fuck anything that walks sadly gives me some hope.
I might download that clip of her and Mr. Marcus if it comes out.
He'll probably break her in two which will be enjoyable to watch.

You had a crush on Bill Maher?:eek: :unsure: Whatever floats your boat.;) I also saw her clip with Mr. Marcus and to my suprise Karrine put something on Mr. Marcus that he has never experienced. She actually did the technique which earned her the name Supahead. :eek: :lol:

She sucked his dick like it was a musical instrument she was playing, two hands and everything. She gives sloppy head though, but her technique seemed to be very effective, bringing a porn star to his knees in like, 1 minute. It really was a sight to behold. :eek::drool::D

And LMAo when she was introducing herself in the porno. "My name is HONEY, muthafucka!"

I don't disagree. But I digress, talk show hosts are supposed to be objective. The audience just never seems to get it though.

So in that respect, maybe Tyra deserved her own backlash.

King explained it quite well and I have to admit Supahead has some mean skills. :tape:

And what does me not liking her have to do with my analyzing her behaviour? I just don't believe in her sudden transformation. Actions speaks louder than words. I've also heard that John Singleton is interested in directing a movie about Supaheads life. When will it end?;)

Is it the "I Can't take it anymore head" Where it's literally so good that you just want it to stop? :lol:

And that movie thing is a trip. But I don't think she is lying about all the celebrities she has slept with.

She has not credibility and is about getting paid. Her new hustle is trying to expose celebs in books for money which is essentially like a prostitute sleeping with a politican and writing a book about it. As harloo said she's been exposed many times and many, including myself believe most of her book is filled with

wow. i went from not carrying one way or the other to wanting to tar and feather her.

KW: Do you have any misgivings about tarnishing the image of so many icons?

is it me or does this chickenhead think shes somebody special?

......

KS: It was easy for me to write about it, because Iím so far removed from that character. The person I was in that book was a character.

this err.. person doesnt even think of herself as real, shes a character even to herself... why do people take her seriously again.


KW: I agree you donít sound like the same person, but maybe you had drug problems when I spoke to you.

OUCH!!! KW dissed her here. "yeah your were on drugs then that explains it" ....

KS: At that time, no.

game. set. match for KW.


KS: Because Iím a power fanatic.

funny i had not noticed.... :tape: :lol:

KS: There are a few things that tend to infuriate me. One is ignorance, because I have become accustomed to speaking to very intelligent people like Gore Vidal and Al Franken on a regular basis, since dating Bill Maher.

Therefore, when Iím in an interview with someone who is not intelligent, but flat-out ignorant, idiotic and stupid, or just an ass, it really gives me a headache.

ok now i get to talk about what annoys me... when you spend a good deal of your life being a high class crack whore, not because you didnt have a way or because you didnt know better but for whatever reason. and then get clean, write about filled with lyings, go on national tv and spread those lies. when you are so stupid and blind sided that you admit to blowing hundreds of dollars on bullshit when you have no income and a son to care for. thats one thing. i can deal with that. but see when you then turn around and start talking smack about other people being stupid or ignorant or just ass, this is when you make jigglypuff angry.

KS: Letís not go there, because I am the truth-teller. And Iíll tell it all.

how you can call yourself a "truth-teller" then lie in the very next sentence, and NOT get struck by lighting is beyond me.

This lady is soooooo nasty that we can't believe a thing she said. After "sleeping" with so many people and making yourself out to be a ho why would you try to profit on letting everyone else know that you were or still are a ho? I find it funny how she only talks about the "truth" when it makes her money. On another note hanging with Al Franken or Bill Maher doesn't show how intellignt you are, but how desperate you are.
