She’s arguably one of the biggest hustlers who began as a video vixen. Karrine Steffans continues to build her brand’s business. In addition to penning a few popular books (Confessions of a Video Vixen, The Vixen Diaries and How To Make Love To A Martian, etc.) the 35 year-old St.Thomas native seems to be trying her hand in television. She recently posted the photo above, writing

Working hard to bring you the television version of Confessions of a Video Vixen. Meeting with the President and attorneys, getting closer to production. Do the work. No one can deny the work

From what we gather, her TV move had been in the works for quite some time. We interviewed her in 2012 and she shared her plans:

The president of the studio wanted me to write a show. We’ve been friends for 11-12 years now. I’m consistently turning down the president of a major studio. I don’t want to write a show because I feared that, it’s something I’ve never done. Finally, he showed me how to write a show and we started. He optioned the Vixen Manual then I wrote the script for that pilot which I just got finished after 2 years. I went through 10-12 drafts. Everyone in the studio has to agree and like everything. It took two years and ten versions before it was ready to go out. We’re deciding on the network currently for the Vixen Manual Show and I’m [going to] keep the title to myself, for now. I recently signed another development deal with FOX for Confessions and now has to be optioned for one hour long. My executive director can not be exposed quite yet, due to contract purposes but I’m super happy to have her. I have two development deals and two television shows underway. It will hit the screen but I don’t know when, television takes forever. I couldn’t work with any other writer but chances are Vixen Manual will probably come sooner because the script is complete. After development then production and we will still have to go in for pick-ups. I have no way of knowing when it will hit the screen.

No word on if the project will be greenlit soon, but are you interested in seeing  Confessions of a Video Vixen on TV? [Instagram, Karrine Steffans]
