Confessions of a Video Vixen. ET June 26, July 4, issue – Most likely you’ve never heard Karrine Steffans’s confessiobs, but perhaps you’ve seen her Steffans not only offers scandalous details but names names in a book called “Confessions of a Video Vixen,” scheduled to be in stores next week.
It describes what happened to me in graphic detail. I’m just putting it out there as plain as I can. But it’s only about 40 percent of everything that happened. It’s more than enough. Some of what Steffans relates is funny, like the night a substance-fueled entertainer supposedly told her he was a member of Al Qaeda, in regular touch with Osama bin Laden.
Her personal history is not. She describes having an absentee father, getting raped vixenn 15, stripping, marrying Mr. Wrong, cruising through a few years of celebrity hookups and, inoverdosing on a cocktail of drugs and finally understanding that the party was over.

Confesssions may have noticed by now that we’re not actually mentioning any of vdeo famous names except for bin Laden’s. One rep had no comment; one star said, “I can’t believe this is happening,” and another said he “didn’t give a f” what Steffans had written.
Her stories, true or not, may prove so embarrassing that no celebrity would want them aired in court. But somehow we get the idea that we haven’t heard the last of her. Steffans—who says she’s now in a “very satisfying” relationship with Bill Maher—is at work on a novel and in negotiations for a movie and, inevitably, a reality show.
It won’t be called “Dancing With the Stars. IN the world of hip-hop secrets are sacred. Given the opportunity to testify against members of her former rap group concerning a shootout outside a radio station inthe rapper Lil’ Kim chose instead to protect them.
She was convicted of perjury and now faces up to 30 years in cnofessions. At a recent concert in New York, the West Coast rapper The Game accused a former boss, the rapper 50 Cent, of being a prosecutor-friendly snitch, the ultimate pejorative in vidso streets where hip-hop was born. So it came as a surprise, if not a shock, in the urban music world last week when one of its most celebrated groupies and video dancers, Karrine Steffans, released a tell-all book that catalogs in graphic detail the sexual escapades she confeswions to have had with some of the biggest stars in the industry, one that has furthered a kind of streetwise policy of don’t ask, don’t tell.
Since it was released on Tuesday, it has been the talk of urban radio, and that night sheffans was all the buzz at the BET awards in Los Angeles, with an astonished “Can you believe that? But the question has cut two ways; it has been as much about Ms. Steffans’s audacity in writing the book as about the veracity of her kiss-and-dish tales.
Steffans, she said, has “violated that code and chosen to talk about everything.

Dawn Davis, vice president of Amistad, said the publishing house stood by Ms. Steffans’s assertions in the book. Davis said, “and those things that we were uncomfortable with were left out.
Interviewed at her home in Los Angeles, Ms. Steffans said she had actually spared the men in her book. The first chapters portray Ms.
Steffans as having had a troubled life: Rap, with whom she had a son. But it was her breakup with Ja Rule, star of the hip-hop collective Murder Inc. In writing “Confessions,” Ms. Steffans drew from stacks of journals and mementos from her high-flying days. Everything that I read disgusted me. Steffans said she was particularly bothered by her inability to see her relationships for exactly what they were: In exchange she had to be steffane and willing to have sex.
Asked karfine she thought she had prostituted herself, she replied: I think that I have sold so much of myself for so little. Steffans blamed her tortured childhood. With these men, I felt glamorous and powerful, and I did feel loved.
She views her memoir as equal parts cautionary tale and therapeutic confessional. Steffans, who is dating the comedian Bill Maher, said her career as an author had only just begun. Next up, a Jackie Collins-inspired novel in which names are changed to protect the not-so-innocent. For now, she said, her former lovers, those who do not appear in “Confessions,” can breathe easy.

Bunky split not hunky-dory. Nerves may be starting to fray in the bitter divorce of publishing heir John Bunky Hearst and his estranged wife, Barbara. The year-old Bunky didn’t show up at the couple’s Manhattan Supreme Court trial yesterday because his lawyer, Sharon Stein, said he was suffering from an “anxiety attack.
Stein inflicted a little anxiety of her own on Barbara Hearst, alleging that, during the year marriage, Barbara had two affairs – one of which resulted in the death of her lover.
Stein claimed that, in JulyBarbara came over to the home of Hamptons neighbor Gary Swanalander for a romp. Swanalander obtained Viagra without a prescription in anticipation of his tryst with Mrs. During Barbara’s visit, Stein said, Swanalander suffered a heart attack. According a police report, the lawyer said, the deceased was found naked. Barbara admitted on the stand that she had called but denied having an affair, insisting that she’d simply come to Swanalander’s house for lunch and that he’d expired when he went upstairs to change after gardening.
Stein also claimed in her opening statement that Barbara had had a fling with Charles Shawcroft, a contractor she hired to renovate her husband’s boat, The Charlotte Lady. Neither Barbara nor her lawyer, Peter Bronstein, commented on this claim. Still unclear is whether Judge Laura Visitacion Lewis will allow a report from a nurse who allegedly claimed Bunky asked her for oral sex.

Judge Lewis has urged both parties to reconsider a settlement in order “to avoid what could be a very painful and embarrassing trial. It’s been hot this week in Toronto – if Kiefer Sutherland is any barometer. The “24” star, who’s up there filming “The Sentinel,” was partying so fiercely Monday night that he stripped off his shirt – much to the delight of female patrons at Trattoria Vaticano.
The actor, who was smoking two cigarettes, has a history of shedding his clothes in public places. In Januaryhe was photographed with his pants down in an L.
This time, he stuck pink flowers down the front and back of his jeans. A paparazzo hiding behind garbage bags outside claims that Sutherland was about to relieve himself on the trash – that is, until the lensman jumped up and started snapping.
