Karrine Steffans shares quite a fem gems in her latest interview with 106 KMEL. The former video vixen, who has been quite vocal about her relationship/friendship with Lil Wayne, shared some relationship advice for women interested in keeping their man. And surprisingly (or perhaps not) her main pointers focused on women maintaining a submissive role. Giving specific tips, she said:
Subservience, humility and shut-up. Shut your mouth. You talk too much. You say too much, you do too much. Be quiet. Just be quiet just say ‘yes’ to everything. Why not? Why can’t you just say, ‘okay.’
When asked by the radio personality about being ‘opinionated’, she responded:
It’s not about what you can do…I can do a lot of things; doesn’t mean I should all the time…Pick you pockets and allow a man to be a man. Let them be the head, not the tale. They run it…Let them do what they do.
Karrine practices her own relationship advice.
I just want everyone to just do what makes them happy. I like to say a lot of ‘yes’; a lot of humility. A lot of, ‘do you need anything?’, ‘Can I help you with anything?’ A lot of fetching…’do you need something?’…let me get that for you…a lot of coddling…a lot of subservience.
And while she’s been married twice, she’s open to the idea of marrying again.
I’m not opposed to it. If I did it again, it would be really real and it would be the last…and it would be with someone who was completely different…someone who appreciates my acumen…someone who is creative and who works with me to create…and is not jealous of my creativity, who is not in competition with me…I’ve always been stronger…and I’ve always taken care of the man in my life…I’ve always been the stronger, just the smartest person in the room…
Karrine also gave some insight on her Caribbean background and why she doesn’t consider herself African American. In the context of how she raises her 15-year-old son, she shares that because she doesn’t have slaves in her lineage (she was raised in Saint Thomas), she doesn’t have the same mentality and raises her son differently.
And I think people forget, I’m an islander. I’m not African American. I don’t have like African American struggles. I just don’t. I don’t have the same history. So, and I’m not even tryna be facetious…There’s a serious mind state that comes with being black in America. And being a black American. And the history that comes with that. And all things that are passed down from generation to generation…Shame. Shame sexually. Sexually shaming. Shame on the female gender. Shame just all kinds of shame. And abuse. And belittling and all those things that come from post-slavery.
I don’t have slavery in my family so and a lot of islanders don’t, so our mind state is different. We see things different and we’re not ashamed of our bodies. We have Carnival for Christ’s sake….That’s how we live our lives. We go to the beach; we swim naked. It’s just different. Island girls just do it better and that’s just a fact.
