Karrine Steffans Is Still Hopelessly In Love With Lil Wayne, Pens Essay About Why She’ll Never Leave Him
If you thought Karrine “Superhead” Steffans’ latest memoir How to Make Love to a Martian was the last you’d hear about her unwavering love for YMCMB rapper Lil Wayne, you are sadly mistaken. The New York Times Best-selling author recently took to her personal blog to express that not even four children, four baby mamas, disrespectful song lyrics or marriage can keep them apart. Her post, titled “It Just Is” which was accompanied by a photo she and Weezy reads:
“It’s hard to explain.
Even though I wrote a whole book about it, I’ll never be able to explain it. For years, no matter what, he’s been there. Even when he was gone, he was there.
Other people come and go but he always, no matter what, stays.
He may not be all mine, he may not be the best, but he’s here even whenI’m not at my best. We say things, we do things, we hurt one another, other people hurt us but they don’t matter and our wounds heal when we’re together.
Our wounds heal when we’re together.
People always ask me why I don’t just leave him. He’ll never be with me. I’d never be with him. I’m married. He’s everywhere. He said this about me inthat song and this song.
Why am I still here?
Because no matter what we’ve done, no matter where we’ve been, no matter where we’ll end up, we are connected by one thing and one thing only.
I depend on that love when someone breaks my heart. It is to him I run. And I know he depends on me and, when he does, I am there.
Never a question, never a denial.
I don’t care where he’s been and he cares nothing of where I was the second before I fall into his arms. I don’t share in his world and he doesn’t participate in mine. We create our own where only we live, love, and know.
And when I am broken into a million pieces, it is he who makes me whole, who picks me up from the floor and reminds me he provides a greater love than that of any other man.
He never leaves me.
He never leaves me.
So, the world doesn’t have to understand as long as I understand and he knows that there are no amount of miles, no amount of arguments, lovers, or lies that could make me turn my back on him or force him to walk away from me.
It’s not easy.
It’s not perfect.
It just is.
Meanwhile on the other side of town, Weezy celebrated 4/20.
A little over one month ago, we told you about an upcoming book release from Karrine “Superhead” Steffans, which she described as an “interpersonal literary project”. The memoir, which is accurately titled, How To Make Love To A Martian, provides an account of the six year relationship shared with Hip Hop heavyweight, Lil Wayne. Sure we already know that Karrine is no stranger to celebrity rendezvous, but what made this story particularly interesting is the fact that during the course of their six year relationship, Karrine has been married, Dwayne has been engaged (several times) and fathered multiple children. A description of the book found on Karrine’s website reads:
“How To Make Love To A Martian is the fifth title from Karrine Steffans and part of a digi-trilogy. It is the true story of the unorthodox relationship between, New York Times best selling author, Karrine Steffans and multi-platinum rap super star Lil’ Wayne. Martian explores the idea of an impossible love and the transposition of power that often occurs when the love of your life is so out of reach, no matter how close they may seem. It explores the concept of unconditional love, even to one’s detriment, and the loss of life that occurs all in the name of holding on to something and someone so completely unobtainable. How To Make Love To A Martian is grossly interpersonal, introspective and riddled with secrets from a woman who dares to love a Martian, against all odds. “
Since the January announcement of her latest composition, Karrine has utilized her website to release a series of home videos in which she reveals juicy tidbits pertaining to her relationship with Wayne, including the fact that she was once pregnant by him. While she doesn’t reveal in the video what became of that pregnancy, I’m sure the tea gets spilled in the actual book. Unlike some of her previously published works, which were available in print and backed by major publishing houses, this memoir is self-published and only available in e-book format at the low price of $2.99.
Do you think this project will be as successful as her previously released books?

In case you were actually waiting around for Karrine Steffans to finish composing her super emotional and most likely über explicit memoir about her relationship with Lil Wayne, it looks like there will be another Hip Hop tell-all book hitting the streets soon to hold you over. At least until Karrine is done pouring out her soul on the pages of How To Make Love To A Martian. It seems that “Love and Hip Hop” star Winter Ramos, whom we will learn more about during tonight’s episode, is planning to release a tell-all book of her own entitled Game Over: My Love for Hip Hop. If you’re having a hard time recalling which one Winter is, she’s the one who made a couple of cameos last season as the assistant of rapper Fabolous.
The memoir is said to shed light on what it was like for her working in the music industry and of course, expose a few of her famous former lovers. The book’s description reads:
In Game Over, Winter puts all of her emotions on the page leaving no experience, emotional abuse, or former lover uncovered. From her days as assistant to rapper, Fabolous and friend to Jadakiss, to appearing on Love and Hip Hop and being Creative Costume Designer for Flavor unit Films, Winter delivers a tell-all book on her famous ex-lovers and experiences in the music industry. As the chick that was always in the mix and cool with everyone, Winter was privy to the cray beyond the videos, private flights, and limos that the cameras caught for us. Her reality and theirs was no game. Game Over is Winter’s cautionary tale for the next generation of young women who believe that the fabulous lives of celebrities unveiled in blogs and on reality television shows are all FIRE! Stay tuned, because this GAME is about to get real.
During tonight’s episode, she introduces herself in a rather questionable way that somewhat implies that she plans on spilling a lot of tea.
“I’m Winter Ramos. You guys may know me as Fab’s assistant, but I’ve been in the music industry for a really long time. I’ve worked with Puff Daddy, Biggie Smalls, Junior Mafia, DMX, Eve, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Irv Gotti… I’ve dated these guys, I’ve slept with them, I’ve worked for them. I know the girlfriend, I know the baby mother, I know the wife. I even know the side chick.”
She also revealed that her “friend” Jadakiss, who is also a rather large part of the book is actually the one who suggested that she pen the tell-all. The book’s release date is April 2nd.
Many feel that the whole concept of women coming out and exposing industry insiders is completely played. But I believe that for every tell-all, there’s a nosy person who will buy it.

Some Things Never Change: Karrine Steffans Drops Trailer Announcing New Book About Her Relationship With Lil Wayne
Exactly one month ago we reported on New York Times bestselling author Karrine Steffans openly expressing her undying love for rapper Lil Wayne and how their relationship has been ongoing through two of her marriages, the birth of three of his children, three engagements and a few other major life events.”We are indestructible and I find it fascinating,” she gushed to Vibe Vixen in a November interview. Yeah, she finds their relationship fascinating all right. So fascinating that she’s writing an entire book or what she refers to as an “interpersonal literary project” about their relationship. But catch this, the title of the book is How To Make Love To A Martian.
The former video vixen released a dramatic video trailer that announced she would be starting the writing process for the book via her Vimeo page. What’s even more interesting is that prior to her release of the video, many of her Twitter followers witnessed her have a complete meltdown in the form of a Twitter rant, which came as a result of Wayne mentioning her name in his new song “Kush and Alcohol”. “No makeup she a 10 and she the best with the head, even better then Karrine,” he rhythmically spits at some point in the song. One can’t say for sure which aspect of the quote set her off, the fact that he referenced her giving sexual favors in a song or that he’s saying that there’s someone better at it than her. But, whichever it was, Karrine certainly was not happy as she went into this whole brokenhearted spiel that gave the world a peek into their highly dysfunctional relationship.
“The morning after, where everything you said to each other plays over and over in your head.”
“When you’re trying to get over it and you know you never will and sh*t will never be the same.”
“Knowing someone meant to hurt you back and did it for everyone to see, though the day you hurt them, you did it in private.”
“When he says there’s nothing in the world he wouldn’t do for you, but, still, he couldn’t manage to not hurt you.”
And so on… I can’t say for sure what Karrine is expecting from Lil Wayne, but if these tweets serve as any indication as to what her book is going to be like, something tells me we are in for a ride.
Check out the video trailer for Karrine’s book on the next page. Be honest, are you at least a tiny bit interested in seeing what she has to say in her book? We won’t judge, I promise!
Leave That Lil’ Boy Alone! Karrine Steffans Releases Video Of Her And Bow Wow Spending ‘Quality Time’
So Karrine “Superhead” Steffans has been making headlines lately for all sorts of reasons. First, she was alleged to be the newest cast member of “Basketball Wives LA”, then for professing her undying love for Lil Wayne and now, for releasing a photo and a video of she and 106 and Park host, Bow Wow spending time together. Before your mind even goes there, it is not the type of video most would expect from the confessing video vixen — they both have their clothes on.
While the point of the video is unclear, it seems that the two were spending some “quality time” together after watching a football game at what looks like Bow Wow’s hotel room before he left town. The video opens with both Bow Wow and Karrine starring into a bathroom mirror and his first words were “It’s not what you think it is, okay?” I guess he knew exactly where our minds would go once we saw the two of them together. But who could blame us considering the fact that the two have been intimate before and that Karrine is known for laying down with famous rappers and getting up to talking about it. But anyway, Bow Wow proceeded to say all nice things about the former video girl stating that she is his “homie” and that he’ll “vouch” for her. He seemed very adamant about letting it be know that the visit was strictly platonic and there was nothing sexual going in his little “disclaimer”.
“Just in case this goes somewhere this is my people. You already know you see a n***a on camera and you already know how yall n***as be thinking. Oh what they do? What they do before the video? What they do after they stopped it? Listen, no bulls**t, this is my peoples and y’all know I’m a good motherf***ing person so if I vouch for somebody it mean that they gotta be a good person,so unless y’all know her personally, y’all really can’t say nothing. She taught me how to wash clothes though. That’s all I gotta say.”
On the other hand, Karrine seemed as if she was trying to set him up for us to think otherwise by playfully asking him for a kiss and telling him how “cute” he looks. Guess he didn’t learn the first time she kiss and told on him and every other rapper in the industry.

‘I’m Not Me Without Him:’ Karrine Steffans Speaks On Strange Relationship With Lil Wayne And Leaving Her Husband
Karrine “Superhead” Steffans, the notorious video vixen who has had no qualms about publicly discussing her former relationships with high profile rappers since the release of her 2005 tell-all, Confessions of a Video Vixen, seems to have no issues with discussing her current ones either. In a recent interview with Vibe Vixen, the three-time New York Times bestselling author held nothing back as she discussed her multiple marriages, her divorce, and her ongoing relationship and love for Lil Wayne.
On still being in a relationship with Lil Wayne although she’s a married woman:
We were together up until a couple of months ago, while I’m still married to my second husband, while I’m still in Vegas with Lil Wayne. All this is going on at the same time.
On remarrying her current husband to get away from her ex-hubby, Darius McCrary:
My first husband [Darius McCrary] and I were good friends for like eight years before we started dating, then we got married and that marriage was tumultuous. It ended in divorce but we were still living together after our divorce, then all of a sudden I up and married someone last year unbeknownst to [Darius], just so I could end that relationship. The person that I’m married to now, I don’t even know this person. It was really just for show… It was very difficult to break those ties. But that didn’t even work because my first husband came back.I can’t shake Darius to save my f***ing life. Wayne has been in my life this whole time.
On the status of she and Wayne’s current relationship:
Wayne and I have kept a relationship through my two husbands, his three kids, three additional baby mamas, three of his albums, three of my books, three of his arrests, one year in prison and three engagements on his part. We are indestructible and I find it fascinating. I’m in constant contact with this person every day, every other day. He is a part of my being. I’m not me without him. He makes me very happy, [but] I couldn’t be with Wayne. I couldn’t live Wayne’s life… That relationship is everything to me, but it’s not what people think it is. It’s not sexual and it’s not financial. It is very spiritual and he’s like my battery pack. When I’m down, when I’m in a really rough space, he always pulls me out of that and he has no idea what he’s done for me.
Although the reformed video vixen says she couldn’t “be with Wayne” it is interesting that she left her husband and not long ago, Lil Wayne told MTV‘s Sway that he plans on seeing himself “happily married in the near future.” I wonder how his alleged girlfriend/fiancee feels about this “spiritual” relationship Karrine has with Wayne.
What do you think about Karrine talking about Wayne all the time?

Remember the days when people would handle their business in the bedroom (or the living room, the bathroom, the car…you get my drift) and you never heard about? Or if you did, it was kind of by happenstance? Yep, those days are long gone and the celebs are the ones that seem to talk the most since they have the spotlight. Let’s check out the blabbermouths!
Is it just me, or have the past few years of reality TV and tell-all books allowed people who embody all things shady get to the top and gain celebrity? Seriously, these days young women are seeing that while an education is nice, if you do something scandalous and talk about it for all to hear, you can get book deals, TV shows, roles in movies, endorsements, advertising for your business ventures and more. Decorum is out for dollars folks, and if you don’t believe me, check out the following individuals. I don’t like to say “Hoes be winning,” so I’ll just say these seven “fools” were (and currently are) winning for all the wrong reasons.
Karrine “Superhead” Steffans
Nobody gained so much notoriety for discussing lewd behavior as Karrine Steffans did after she revealed a who’s who list of famous (and often, VERY married) rappers she rolled in the sack with or went down on in “Confessions of a Video Vixen.” The chick was on “Oprah” for goodness sake! While the book was interesting, and you could also feel for her a little bit as a woman who was sexually assaulted and had it change her in path in life, it also left a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe the whole kissing and telling culture just bothers me, but she didn’t seem that apologetic to the wives of the women she slept with, and spent more time either lauding the men and their packages or dissing their stroke. And after the fact she jumped on the media blitz getting her name out there, still dissing or running after men she claimed to be in love with (like Lil’ Wayne) and signed contracts to put out more of these kinds of books, and more. In the end, I think Steffans just exposed herself most over the years as an all-around sloppy individual, airing out everyone she ran into, including her ex-husband Darius McCrary, Bobby Brown and her current husband via Twitter. She made millions off of being messy.
