Karrine Steffans Confesses She’s Ended Her Marriage, Hints Jackie Chrisite Started Reality Rumors + Still Loving Lil Wayne

As one of the most open and controversial chicks in the game, we love it when Karrine Steffans gives an interview. This time, she sat down with Vibe Vixen and talked about the rumors that she would be joining the “Basketball Wives: LA” cast, her relationship with Lil Wayne, her confusing marriage/relationship status, and taking over TV.  Peep the excerpts:

On rumors she’s joining Basketball Wives:

“No, I’m not going to be on the show… Someone told me that a cast member went to MediaTakeout and told them I was going to be on the show as a ploy to boost ratings because it was losing so much hype. So I called a particular cast member who I heard spread the rumor and she’s been dodging me which is weird.”

On BBWLA cast member Jackie Christie started the rumor:

[Laughs] “I’m not going to say, but I called a particular cast member to ask. This is the second time that they’ve done that. The first time was for the first season. When I call her, no answer. Text message, no answer. Called her again, no answer.”

On her relationship with Lil Wayne:

“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… It’s an awesome relationship and and it’s something I do want to explore more in my life.”

On her reaction when she heard about him having seizures:

“I woke up in the middle of the night and I felt weird. I looked at my phone and had all these missed calls and messages. Some of them were from people that were in Wayne’s camp. My whole body started shaking because I didn’t know what happened yet. I had to go online and read it because no one was getting back to me right away, of course. I [remember] standing in the bathroom reading about him being sick online and me being really scared. I was in the bathroom pacing until I got the text message back from him, and I just started crying. I got one message back from him and he says, ‘Babe, I’m OK.’ Everyday after that we’ve been a little closer. 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.”

On “Confessions Of A Video Vixen” becoming televised:

“We’ve been actually talking to Queen Latifah and Shakim [Compere] about them producing the one-hour scripted version of Confessions for cable with me. This is the space I’m in, so when you talk to me about Basketball Wives, I’m like, I’m executive producing my own shows based on two of my books.”

On her two marriages:

“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.”
