Vixen Chat: Karrine Steffans Clears Up ‘Basketball Wives’ Rumors, Talks Two Marriages and Lil’ Wayne

Immediately, it’s apparent: Karrine Steffans likes to talk, and her beef today is with source-less media, specifically Rolling Out. The urban entertainment site has offended the LA resident by blasting a list of her alleged ex-lovers, sex game ratings included.

“Half the list I don’t even know,” she states in frustration. “It’s so gauche, it’s so pedestrian. There are so many things that are beneath me. I am a three-time New York Times bestseller, I sold a bunch of books all around the world and I’ve been on Oprah. I do things that other people can’t do; I’m over here working. What I’m not over here doing is [going] online making lists.”

Or joining the cast of Basketball Wives LA, she says.

Rumors flew recently that the Drink, Fuck, Sleep writer would become the newest victim of reality TV lenses, maybe even adding some much needed excitement for the West Coast clique. Although, she stalled the rumor mill (for now), Vixen snatched up an hour with her to discuss the popular VH1 show, her objections to female friends, the 10-year anniversary of Confessions of a Video Vixen and how she reacted to Lil Wayne’s seizure news.–Niki McGloster
