Confessions of a Video Vixen is the widely anticipated memoir of Karrine Steffans, the once-sought-after sexy siren who appeared in the music videos of multiplatinum hip hop artists such as Jay-Z, R. Kelly, and LL Cool J. A top-paid video dancer, Karrine transitioned to film when acclaimed director F. Gary Gray picked her to costar in his film A Man Apart, starring Vin Diesel. But the movie and music video sets, swanky Miami and New York restaurants, and trysts with the celebrities featured in the pages of People and In Touch magazines only skim the surface of Karrine's life.

This memoir -- part tell-all, part cautionary tale -- shows how Karrine came to be the confidante of so many, why she kept their secrets, and how she found herself in Hollywood after a life marked by physical abuse, rape, and drugs -- all before she was twenty-six. By sharing her emotionally charged story, she hopes to shed light on an otherwise romanticized industry.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 2/20/2014

    " Funny, surprising, fastest thing I've ever read. If you like gossipy news and rap music, this is great. She doesn't give out all the names, which made me think a lot about who it could be. Basically, it's a tell-all about anyone and rarely about her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Hurbi | 2/6/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. The autobiography of a troubled girl who looks for acceptance in all the wrong ways, coupled with an inside look at the music industry and the eccentric lifestyles of the people in it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vasilka | 2/5/2014

    " This book was good and was definitely an easy read. It was interesting to learn about this chick's relationships w/ a lot of A list rappers, etc. I got this book done in about 3 days because like I said, it was an easy read and I love gossip books :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nora | 2/4/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/29/2014

    " I read this without purchasing it (I know, not the right thing to do) but I become engulfed with this easy read due to the racy nature. Karrine mentioned a lot of "hot names" in today's celebrity reality circle and left me wondering if it was really all true or not! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolina | 1/27/2014

    " It was a pretty scandolous read. It was a fun though and a bit informing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 1/17/2014

    " Slut. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Sumpter | 1/8/2014

    " This book was ok, you feel some sympathy for her at some points. But her next book made me so sick that I could not finish it just ridiculous with ego ugh "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer T | 1/5/2014

    " Kinda Sleazy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ikimacooper | 12/28/2013

    " This book was good but i think that she was a very horible and nasty person, she says she lived this life for her son and that is really ridiculous, it should've been a better way to take of your child. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 11/28/2013

    " I found this book interesting in the fact that she was so real about her past .She really told her story and these young girls looking up to these entertainers now in days need to read this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda Smolenski | 11/14/2013

    " A poor exuse of a memoir with no satisfactory ending, seeminly no lessons learned and filled with delusions of a woman who can't see herself for what she trully is "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Porcha Maten | 10/24/2013

    " It was pretty cool until basically the end. I felt really sorry about her childhood once she left her grandma. Poor parenting caused her lifestyle but it just seemed out of hand toward the end. "

    " All I can say is to just read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Treyonna | 11/27/2012

    " This book was okay, but I expected more. It was a simple book, but I feel that she didn't tell her whole story. Simply something was missing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yolanda | 9/23/2012

    " I thought the writing was immature. I was expecting more sluttery too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasha | 6/1/2012

    " hmmm, this was a very interesting book. Who knows if all she said happened actually did, you never really know. But she sure as hell got around. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keena Murray | 1/20/2012

    " If I hadn't spent $25 on this, I would've given it away to the girl at the salon who inquired about it. Too many moments in the book where I had a strong suspicion that she was completely full of it. Total waste of money. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sy | 5/27/2011

    " This book was good. Took me one day to read it. I liked guessing what celebrity she was talking about in certain situations. The woman is a hoe but at least she was hoeing with people that were sometimes worth it. I love gossip. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 5/22/2011

    " The writing and story were alright, but I couldn't get past how easily she described herself as a whore skewed things to make them seem acceptable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doneisha | 4/16/2011

    " This book was pretty interesting as well as informing. It felt as if I were given permission to read someone's personal diary. I think my peers would love reading this because the author tells all about her personal and secret sexual encounters with numerous male celeberities. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany | 3/2/2011

    " If you like to read about celebrity gossip you will most likely enjoy this book. Although I am not a huge celeb gossip queen, I did enjoy parts of this book. It does have an okay story to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isiah | 1/22/2011

    " This book is good.
    I couldn't put it down.
    The only reason why i bought her second book
    Was because her first book was good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 11/18/2010

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amar | 10/19/2010

    " This book was really bad. "Self-pitying ho" is how I would describe the author.

    Here is a partial list of dudes she slept with:

    Shaquille O'Neal
    DMX
    Ja Rule
    Puff Daddy
    Irv Gotti
    Usher
    ah who cares "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yuska | 10/18/2010

    " shocking. Great story.but i think the title should've changed to "Confessions of a hip hop ho" coz she gave only a few details about her being a video vixen. "
