Rap Vixen And Houston Radio Host Tangle To The Death
Quick, who's Karinne Steffans?
You're supposed to know that. At least, according to her you are.
Steffans, massive internet research reveals, is a former model and moneymaker-shaker in videos who wrote a tell-all book about her high-flying life called Confessions of a Video Vixen. (Among the people she claimed to have had sex with: Ja Rule, Bobby Brown, Dr. Dre, Shaquille O'Neal and Usher.)
She has a new book out now, the Vixen Manual, and went on the Rod Ryan show at 94.5 The Buzz to promote it. Things did not go well.

Ryan wanted to talk about the celebrity-sex; Steffans wanted to talk about "How to Find, Seduce and Keep the Man You Want," which is the subtitle of her no-doubt weighty tome.
Sparks kinda flew, as the two talked over each other, Ryan saying he needed to introduce her to listeners and Steffans saying they already knew about the sex stuff. Other interviewers in the series of radio shows she was in the midst of weren't asking about that, she said.
"We're wasting time," she said. "People have been doing this fine all morning -- why is this so difficult for you?"
"People have been playing along the way you want them to play all morning?" Ryan asked.
"They're just being really smart and they're good at their jobs," Steffans replied.
From there it didn't quite resemble an old William F. Buckley Firing Line. (It didn't help when Ryan wrongly accused Steffans of claiming to have slept with Jay-Z, Chris Rock and Jamie Foxx.)
"I didn't bang anyone to get here today," Ryan said.
"I didn't bang anyone to get here today either," Steffans replied.
"You sure as hell did," Ryan said.
"No, I wrote books," Steffans said.
Ryan then tried to salvage things by asking about Vixen Manual, but it was too late.
"Actually, we're done," Steffans said. "I'm off." She then hung up.
Sadly, Houston has thus been deprived of learning how to find, seduce and keep the man it wants. You could buy the book, we guess, but we wouldn't advise it.
