Aeron wrapped his big, strong, manly arms around my neck, placing me in a chokehold and squeezing like a boa constrictor.

I gasped for air. I clawed at his arms, face, and neck.

“I can’t breathe,” I whispered, nearly lifeless.

“Go to sleep, bitch,” he chanted, over and over, until I passed out and fell to the ground, splitting my lip and gashing the side of my face.

I came to alone. The world spun as I gasped for breath, my pink shirt red with blood. Anyone with self respect would have known this was the end and would have cut their losses and moved on.

Anyone with self respect.

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 bestselling 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 readers into the belly of the beast. Candidly, she shares the lengths she went to in her struggle to be what others demanded, her desperation to appear normal, and the price she paid for it all. She chronicles the systematic breakdown of her mind, body, and spirit at one man’s hand—and the events that propelled her back to prosperity after losing everything.

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 and reveals the inspiring details of her life-saving triumph. Vindicated will change everything you thought you knew about Karrine Steffans.
