Karrine Steffans

Karrine “Superhead” Steffans is getting a taste of her own medicine with the release of “Kiss and Tail: The Hollywood Jump-off,” a DVD documentary featuring singer Norwood Young that reveals even more secrets about the former music video vixen than she has already told.

In the video, Young claims that Steffans admitted faking her tears during an appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to promote her 2006 best-seller, “Confessions of a Video Vixen.”

Per the New York Daily News, Young also claims in the film that Steffans secretly recorded men during sex, and threatened her boyfriend Darius McCrary with a knife.

McCrary himself appears in the documentary. Even though Steffans says he’s now her husband, he calls her a “scorpion” and alleges she “socks” her 11-year-old son.

Steffans declined to comment, except to say she’s talking with her lawyers


Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

Still dizzy from the extremes of preparing Michael Jackson’s 50-night O2 Arena stand one minute, to his televised memorial the next, AEG is currently mulling how to best present Jackson’s final work to his fans.
The company is considering a tribute concert at London’s O2 utilizing the massive production that was put together for his “This Is It” concerts, reports Billboard.

“We’re just starting to get into that now, to figure out how to unveil all the stuff we have to the world,” says Randy Phillips, CEO of AEG Live. “I think at some point we’ll show Michael’s last masterpiece, This Is It, to the world.”

This Is It intellectual property, including Jackson’s “mini-movies” produced for the shows, is “all locked up at the Staples Center in the vault. The production, staging and all that is in warehouses under lock and key,” said Phillips. “And the dancers and everyone else want to do the show for the world one time, so we kind of have them on hold, but we don’t have anything confirmed yet.”

Speculation has been that the tribute show might be staged on what would have been Jackson’s 51st birthday on Aug. 29. “That would be the ideal time, but we’re not sure we can get it together in time,” Phillips says.

Regarding the MJ This Is It merchandise, Phillips says it is selling “big time” on the Web site and will be offered at retail at some point. “I have a book of 300-plus of the most amazing items Michael designed with Bravado that are just spectacular, the best merch I’ve ever seen in my life,” he says.


Antonio Villariagosa

Antonio Villariagosa

Last week certain Los Angeles city council members and the temporary mayor were freaking out over the cost of the Michael Jackson memorial held at the Staples Center, downtown.

They went as far as to ask the public for donations to cover the approximately $1.4 million dollar tab to the city.

Well, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (Vee-ya-rai-gosa) is back from a week-long vacation in South Africa and is not with the program at all.

It seems that upon his return, the mayor shut down the website asking for donations to cover the cost of Michael Jackson’s funeral.

“This is a world-class city, and we provide fire and police protection, period,” Villaraigosa told reporters during a visit to Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. “The idea that we would charge the family for a funeral is nonsensical.”

During his absence, his office created a website on which residents could make donations to help cover the costs of the event. It is said that the website had brought in around $35,000 before it was closed down. He did not state if the donated money would be returned.

Villaraigosa said it is the city’s responsibility to provide police and fire services. He did go into the fact that this was a private event, not a city, State or Federal event.

That prompted some wags to wonder if the city of Los Angeles is willing to pay $1.4 million for Jackson’s funeral does that mean the city is willing do so for each and every person who wishes to hold a party, wedding or funeral as well?

But what we find amazing is that Mayor Villaraigosa, the king of the photo-opp & soundbyte, didn’t hop a plane back to the city for another opportunity to milk the situation to his advantage. Who knew … he wouldn’t?
