Publisher's Summary

For a decade, Confessions of a Video Vixen author Karrine Steffans and the details of her private life have been the subject of debate and scrutiny. But, as gossipmongers and critics speculated, assumed, and manufactured tall tales about the New York Times best-selling author, Karrine hid herself and her truth from the world, imprisoned by an abusive marriage and the judgments of society.

In Vindicated: Confessions of a Video Vixen, Ten Years Later, Karrine takes listeners into the belly of the beast as she harrowingly chronicles the systematic breakdown of her mind, body, and spirit at the hand of one man and the events that propelled her back to prosperity after losing everything. She candidly shares her struggle to be what others demand, her obsession with the American dream, her desperation to appear normal, the lengths to which she went, and the price she paid for it all.

This dark, long journey into the life of an abused and tormented woman, wife, and mother uncovers a long-guarded set of painful personal truths, reveals the inspiring details of her life-saving triumph, and will change everything you thought you knew about Karrine Steffans.

It was okay

I get the point of the story. But I feel that she told a story that showed no real growth. I read the first book and this one. Nothing in between. This book feel like not much changed

Not what I expected!

The narration was pretty good, the story not so much! it was a long drawn out story of essentially being a doormat and a women who after all she has been through really has not learned from them at all! Through every chapter As I hoped this would be the one where she would get it. I also could not help to wonder where her son's head was watching his mom go from man to man trying to find something that was within all along! I kept on wondering what his confessions would be! I hurt for him, I felt pain for him. I don't feel like I gained anything from experiencing this book!

Terrible

I can't finish listening to this book. This grown woman keeps making the same mistakes over and over with men. If I have to listen to her say "and I was reborn" or "I was refreshed" after every meeting with a new man, I'm gonna scream until she hears me all the way in LA. She's going to continue living like this into her 60s if she don't WTFU. And her poor son. Lord Jesus. What kind of mother takes their child thru such turmoil. He will never have a healthy relationship with a woman. And we all know who Aaron is. We all knew Eddie Winslow was a POS. Why couldn't she see it.

Skin

Great story! I did not appreciate how whenever she discribed someone as "unattractive" she immediately talked about them being dark skinned. I now wish I had used my credit for a diffrent author to late now.

I liked the audible version

I liked the audible version, because I love hearing her talk!! Hearing the book made it more entertaining, if I would have read it on my own, I don't know if I would have felt the same!! Overall, I am glad I heard it!! :) P.S. It did have a lot of similarities to How to Make Love to A Martian tho', but if you have not read that book, then this one will give you a lot of new stories!!

Interesting Story Telling. A World Class Muse.

Karrine Steffans has millions of peers. In a world full of abused children where whipping and beating were part of our culture until a few years ago, she gallantly refuses to justify it. In a world full of runaways she manages to own it, and not apologize. In a world full of abusive parents, she refuses to normalize it. She has a rare innate sense of Integrity that is old spirit. Even somewhat holy. She is without a doubt one of the most beautiful women in the world, probably in the top ten. She is resourceful, cunning, brilliant, and talented. With remarkable insight and communication skills. If you wonder why she is not parked in a mansion on Lake Cuomo as a world-class celebrity, swimming in affluence, she simply has the world's worst taste in men. I even researched some of her partners and the one she (tries to describe anonymously as "Aaron",) made me cringe back from my monitor screen after seeing him in two short video clips. With all of her assets, good company should be easy to find but becomes impossible. One for one, they have Sadistic Personality Disorder or they are too gullible to hold her interest. Unintelligent losers that float in the grey areas appear easy to dominate. "Danger" becomes her "Normal". But they are mercurial. And set her up for more losses. Nevertheless, as she teeters on the brink of survival and destruction, she can transport the reader into the moments with her. And make you want to say or do something, to befriend her and help her. At the end of the day, she is a come back kid.

Waste of time

Im really disappointed. This book is annoying. I just want to just shake her and slap her. The book will have u going in circles. She obviously didn’t learn anything and i can’t read anymore of her books. There’s no point.

Not her greatest work.

I’m 2 hours in and it’s just her complaining of her getting herself into her first marriage from being vulnerable. And wanting normalcy away from Wayne. This isn’t it chief.
