Karrine Steffans is blabbing all of her bedroom business again in “The Vixen Diaries,” a tell-all book that continues to chronicle her trysts with famous rappers and athletes that began with her first memoir, “Confessions of a Video Vixen.” The new book purports to offer self-help advice in addition to providing details of her sexual encounters with such celebs as Mike Tyson and boxer Antonio Tarver. Steffans also denies that she was a catalyst for the divorce of Halle Berry and Eric Benet, and says she never once came between Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton Rock as rumored. The author also says she never had sex with Whitney Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown, but has always considered him a close friend – that is until he allegedly belittled their friendship. According to excerpts from “Diaries” reported in the New York Daily News, Steffans writes: “I kept Bobby close to my heart.” Meeting after a time apart, “he embraced me as I whispered, ‘I love you,’ and he returned, ‘I love you, too.'” But she says Brown later told “me I had done nothing for him, while he was sleeping in my home, eating my food, driving my car and spending my money.” After a tryst with Ray J, she told Brown that the rapper claimed he’d added Whitney’s name to his bedpost. “I could hardly wait to get the news out, to tear [Bobby’s] heart apart and hurt him the way he hurt me, I wanted him to go to bed that night with the image of his wife with another man.” Here are more excerpts from “Vixen Diaries”:


• Regarding Mike Tyson, she writes, “loves the same way he fights: hard and rough. His kisses are like uppercuts, and his lovemaking is like a title match. And as he proved against Evander Holyfield, Mike Tyson is a biter. His passion manifested through pain as … I endured the extreme force of his 200-pound frame colliding into mine, he kissed, sucked and bit me overzealously. I was in excruciating pain as we continued in this manner for several hours. At the end, I was covered in bruises and bite marks and vowed to never have sex with him again.”


• She also slept with boxer Antonio Tarver shortly before his marriage. As she watched Antonio kiss his new wife, Steffans muses, “I recalled his face and lips [exploring my body] … I wondered how I tasted to her.”


• Jamie Foxx told her, “Damn, you’re pretty!” when they met. “When Jamie Foxx offers to massage your body at four in the morning, after a bottle of Champagne and two shots of Patron, it’s hard to say no,” she writes. However, Jamie soon figured out she was “that Karrine.” Foxx ran in the other direction, leaving the author “depressed. Jamie had no idea that he made me cry all the way home and in the days that followed.”


• Comic Bill Maher delivered her greatest heartache. “In January of 2006, Bill and I split. Three days later, I suffered an emotional breakdown and was sent to the hospital for psychiatric observation. I cut my wrists and started drinking myself into an emotional tailspin. At the end of the night, the love of my life was gone and so was my son, Naiim,” taken away by Child Services.

Regina Hall, whose last television project was Fox’s “Ally McBeal,” has come aboard the untitled multicamera pilot produced by ABC Studios.

Ken Whittingham has been tapped to direct the pilot. The helmer has previously directed episodes of “Entourage,” “The Office” and “Everybody Hates Chris.”
