Karrine Steffans is promoting her latest book, The Vixen Manual. She recently made a stop to a Sacramento, California, morning show, "Good Day Sacramento," for what should have been a friendly chat with anchors Marianne McClary and Nick Toma. But Karrine wasn’t happy with Nick’s quick description of the book and flipped the script.
Check out the clip:
The offending line seemed to be Nick’s question: "Are these tips that you learned in all those years you did those music videos you seduced a lot of rappers and singers over the years." To which she responded with, "No, you’re wrong, 100 percent…and I’m actually a little offended, already, so early into our interview!"
Nick and Marianne gave her time to explain herself.
"As a married woman and a mother of two, I have, of course, dated, as women do in their 20s," she said. "I’m only 31 years old at this point, but I had a pretty normal 20s in dating and trying to figure out how to settle down–what kind of person to settle down with. In The Vixen Manual, it’s more so about preparing yourself as a single girl. All those lessons that no one gave me as a young child and as a young adult, I am now able to give to women who may not have the proper role models."
The meat of the book, Karrine said, was, "conversations I’ve had with women over the last four or five years."
After that, Marianne wasn’t shy about voicing her skepticism with Karrine’s version of the book, which feature the former video model’s exposed torso on the cover.
"I would say it goes a little bit further than just conversations, wouldn’t you say?" the host asked.
"First of all the book comes with a band so you can’t flip it open in the bookstore, and there’s a good reason for that. There are explicit drawings in here of sexual positions of things along those lines, so when you talk about lessons and things that you were taught as a child, where are you going with this book, seriously?"
Karrine, obviously offended, countered with, "This book is for married people! Did you read it? Because you sound like you didn’t."
The author and the anchor continued to go back and forth for a minute before Nick shut it down and said, "I’m making an executive call. Cut the interview. There you go. Bye-bye, see you. Book’s available in bookstores now." After Karrine signed off, he commented that "she was a rumpshaker in a bunch of videos, ’nuff said."
