If you have been an avid fan of hip-hop over the past decade, the name Karrine ‘Superhead’ Steffans is sure to raise an eyebrow or two. This has-been video vixen has been through most (maybe all) the major movers and shakers in the industry, bed-hopping from one rap megastar to the next. In her debut New York Times bestseller Confessions of a Video Vixen, Steffans recounts her life as the wife/mistress of countless emcees and DJ’s, her fabulous status as a flagship video model, and the depressing lows as an addict, struggling to find her voice and peace of mind. Eventually she settled down and focused on her family life, but recent tumults with Darius McCrary (aka “Eddie Winslow”) landed her back with the brow-raising question of whether or not her life was together.
…and now you can raise your brows even higher, because despite her rocky relationships and “glutton for punishment” love life, Steffans keeps it truckin’ in the industry by now offering couple’s therapy sessions. How is she doing it, you ask? Why, by publishing another book, of course! Her new book, titled SatisFaction is a step-by-step guide on how to “spice up” your bland relationships and get what you completely want out of your love life.
Now I’m not one to completely knock someone’s hustle; in fact, I’m kind of optimistic that her advice will be well-received and quite valid, based on her decorated past, but, of course, in the back of your head, you’re still thinking, “isn’t this the woman that all the rap stars used to call ‘Superhead’?” I mean, how serious can you take a woman who’s been in the romantic company of Bobby Brown? [insert “yuck” face here] I’m not being hateful at all, in fact, I wish her the best with this upcoming book SatisFaction but given Steffans’ current and past love life, perhaps she should be ATTENDING a couple of therapy sessions herself, as opposed to advising.
