It’s official, this ho is never going to shut her pie hole, or her legs for that matter. She recently did an interview with PR.com and discusses various topics like not remembering what she says, being normal, calling Tyra Banks a bitch, and her son:
PR.com: When you were on Jamie Foxx’s radio show, why did you say that Ray J (Ray J is an R&B singer and younger brother of singer Brandy) was gay?
Karrine Steffans: I don’t remember the Jamie Foxx show (The Foxx Hole on Sirius Satellite Radio) to tell you the truth. I don’t remember anything I said. The Jamie Foxx radio show is one of those things where Jamie’s a good friend of mine. We spent, I think, seven hours together that day on the beach having shots of Patron and drinking champagne and having a good time. Things were said that were just said. It was just good radio. People should stop taking things so literally and so seriously. It’s only radio.
PR.com: So you were just joking around?
Karrine Steffans: I don’t know what I was doing! I was on the radio with Jamie Foxx… drinking. That’s what I was doing.
PR.com: Well take someone like Danielle Steele. She puts out a book when she puts out a book… or Sydney Sheldon… people don’t really know anything about their personal lives. They’re not gossiped about. Are you enjoying that kind of fame, and does it give you something you didn’t have before?
Karrine Steffans: I don’t think so. To me I’m just a person and I write books and everyone else sensationalizes me. I’m a normal person that just happens to write books about things that happened in my life. They may not be normal to other people, but it’s all normal to me, and I’m just a person. I don’t see myself that way. But, I do understand I’m a different kind of author, because most authors, you don’t even know what they look like and you don’t know anything about them. But when someone writes about their personal life, then of course! It’s like reality TV, but [with] books.
PR.com: In The Vixen Diaries you talked about your experiences doing the press tour for Confessions of a Video Vixen. You mentioned Tyra Banks being a hypocrite and you described her as being a female “male chauvinist,” and said that she turned on you during the interview. What did you feel that she did that was unfair, for people who didn’t see it?
Karrine Steffans: To make a very long tragic story short, when someone who is really not that different from you privately, but is publicly different from you, takes a public high road, then at some point it’s just disgusting. I think that Tyra was new in her job. We filmed my show before her first show ever aired. So, it was two months before she even hit the airwaves, so she was very new at her job. I don’t think that she understood, in her newness, how to be objective while doing the interview and not letting her personal feelings get in the way of being a talk show host, like her mentor which would be Oprah. Having been on Oprah and everyone else, it gave me a chance to see, “Ok. This is how you do it right and this is how you totally f*ck it up.” And Tyra totally f*cked it up. But she was new. So, I’m going to give her that credit. Maybe she didn’t know or understand, or maybe she’s just a giant bitch.
PR.com: What’s been your experience in raising your son as a single mother, and will you be candid with him about your past?
Karrine Steffans: There’s only one thing to tell your children and that’s the truth. And it’s nothing to be ashamed of. I’m very proud of my entire life and I think that I would feel a little differently if it didn’t end up so great. But we’re fine. And so it’s, “Mommy did all of this for you, and this is where it’s gotten us. [We’re] happy, healthy and taken care of for the rest of our lives.” We’re completely stable. And before thirty I was able to turn it around and change. Most young parents are a little confused and don’t know what to do, which is why you shouldn’t have kids when you’re eighteen or nineteen years old. It’s ridiculous! I would have waited until I was thirty-something to have my son. But I was ill informed; so was my mother and so was her mother before her. This is what happens when you don’t know how to raise your children. You have a plethora, and a cycle of mistakes. So yeah, of course you want to sit down and tell your kids all your mistakes; all of them. You have to, so that while they’re making the same mistakes, because they probably will, they can come to you and you can help soften them or make them better in some way.
