KS: I think the ongoing misconception, and it has been for almost ten years, is that I live some sort of wild, sex-crazed life (laughs), whereas the truth of the matter is that in the last 7 or 8 years I've been married several times and have done very little dating. It took me 33 years to teach myself a new language and so, being brought up in an abusive household--never feeling loved, always feeling put upon, being abused sexually as a child, being raped--all of those things formulated the woman I was, who I am, and who I am becoming. My writing is innate, I've been writing since I was 5, so even when I was a child, it was how I let things go and gave them back to the universe.
So, I loved that he was dominant and that I couldn't be dominate when I was around him. I loved that he was a gentleman, that he would always make sure I was okay. The thing about loving someone is that you have to love them the way they need to be loved and not the way you want to love them. The way I love Wayne is the way he needs to be loved by me. So, you have to be able to put that person in the right kind of love and have a different language with them. Whatever the issues are or were, if there were women in his life that have felt or do feel some kind of way because of whatever relationship we may have had in the past, I've never seen all of that. KS: Wayne was the first person, other than my son, who I loved unconditionally. I don't care if you're my mother, father, sister, I will cut you off and not talk to you. If my mother had been honest about one thing, she would have a better life today and better relationships with her children and grandchildren. I never wanted my son to feel like I lied or even hid anything.
If he was out all day doing something and I was stuck at home, he would send somebody back to the house to make sure I had food and whatever I needed. He was very loving and trusting of me and very open and honest with me at times. So, the way I love my son is not the way I love Wayne. We're just people who have known each other for a long time. So, Wayne was the first person who taught me how to love unconditionally. As the child of a woman who never answered anything honestly if at all, I knew I didn't want to be that way, especially with my kid. I want women, especially, to talk, answer questions, and be honest.
I am only attracted to powerful men because I am a very powerful woman. People think that just because you love someone, that means you have to be with them, but that is ridiculous. So, there's nothing to deal with because I don't see you, therefore, I don't have to deal. Everyone should be that way and not define themselves. KS: The number one example I wish to set is I want women to talk about things, no matter what it is, even if you don't come out looking good in the story.
I tend to dominate men who aren't powerful and I don't like that. According to Greek philosophy, there are six different kinds of love and we love everyone differently. I don't recognize hate, I don't recognize bitterness, I don't recognize jealousy, I don't recognize greed. I am able to live a prosperous, blessed life because I don't give power to certain things. If you are a bad person to me, you're a bad person. When you start defining yourself, you put yourself in boxes and I don't want to be trapped in anything because I will always evolve--I will always change. Everyone is so afraid of making themselves look bad and of judgement. The blatant lying and never wanting to admit things created the disrespect.
It is my sincerest hope that @officialcshort gets the professional help he needs and I will be there to support him when or if he does. As embarrassing and humiliating as this time is, it may be necessary. There are photos, audio and police records that point to the truth, all of which I keep closely guarded. But even the greatest of men lose their way when substances are involved. "I just want to move on with my life and get back to work," he added.
My hope is that I never feel the need to defend myself publicly against his public rants, accusations, half truths, and lies, for these are the traits of an addict and those dealing with mental illness.
Although the media continues to vilify her and put her in a box, there are always two sides to a story and Karrine is finally ready to tell hers. I think regrets are things people make up in their heads. Everything turned out exactly the way it was supposed to. So, there's nothing there to regret and there's nothing to regret about sharing.
A highly sought after speaker, interior stylist, and book publisher, Karrine is teaching women how to be the masters of their minds, bodies, and souls. Never regret sharing your journey because that helps other people in theirs, so no one should regret that. People who have always known me and who have loved me have seen me this way.
After getting kicked out for allegedly cheating on his wife, Karrine Steffans, actor Columbus Short revealed during a radio interview that he and the former video vixen never legally married.
