(BLACK AMERICAWEB) Note to Karrine Steffans: Gavrilo Princip changed the world. You’re just a chick with an out-of-control ego.
Steffans does think she changed the world. She said as much on TV One’s show, “Life After.” The new season for this excellent, relatively new show started this summer. “Life After” has a documentary format that traces the lives of what celebrities did after their careers in show business or athletics were over. This season was sailing along fine with some engrossing stories about Elise Neal and Janet Hubert, former stars of, respectively, “All of Us” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
Back when ideas were being tossed around about what to do for this upcoming season, someone with no darned sense must have chimed in, “Hey, why don’t we do a show about Karrine ‘Superhead’ Steffans?’”
The correct answer, of course, would have been, “Let’s not, and just say we did.”
There may have indeed been wiser heads in that production session where topics for this season’s “Life After” were discussed, but they didn’t prevail. So, we got the show on Steffans, the former video dancer who wrote the bestselling book, “Confessions of a Video Vixen.” In the book, Steffans pretty much confessed to sleeping with just about everybody in the hip-hop world. I’m surprised some guys aren’t driving around with bumper stickers that read, “Honk if you’ve slept with Superhead.”
I can’t give the details in a BlackAmericaWeb.com column about how Steffans got that name. Editors here, unlike Steffans, do have some standards, and they do have a cut card. Steffans left a trail that might be described by one word. It’s a four-syllable word of Latin origin that starts with the letter “f.” Most women who left such a trail would neither write nor talk about it. They’d keep their darned mouths shut.
(Writer pauses now to ponder propriety and multiple meanings of that last sentence. Okay, moving on.)
On Steffans’ “Life After” segment, she felt compelled to let viewers know this: “I’m not stupid; I’m super-smart.”
Excuse me, since when does intelligence have anything to do with being a tramp? I know women who wouldn’t be considered even minimally intelligent, let alone “super-smart,” but they do know how to keep their legs – and their mouths – shut when it comes to dealing with men.
Before I make any more attacks on Steffans’ character, let me assure readers I’m by no means letting the men she had sex with off the hook. Tramps need dogs to be tramps. Am I accusing all those men – I’m not mentioning any names; you know who you are – who had sex with “Superhead” of being dogs? No, but if the flea collar fits, then wear it.
After assuring us of her mental prowess, Steffans told us just how important she’s been to the world. Why? Because she’s been on television, of course.
“First it was (Bill) O’Reilly,” she said. “Then it was Geraldo (Rivera). Nine months later, it was Oprah (Winfrey). And I realized: I changed the world.”
Someone please tell this woman, “Oh, you are straight trippin’, boo!” Steffans may have ratcheted down America’s moral values a notch or two, but that process started long before she was born. As I said at the beginning of this column, Gavrilo Princip changed the world.
Who was Princip? The guy who assassinated Archduke Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary on June 28, 1914. Princip’s act set off World War I, which led to several things:
1. The rise of communism in Russia and the birth of the Soviet Union.
2. The defeat of Germany, the rise of Hitler, the Holocaust and World War II.
3. The creation of the state of …..
