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.

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
This wad a good book. This author sure has been through a lot. It would seem after 10 years she would have learned from her mistakes.. I sure can't wait for the son's tell all book of his life and the encounters he had with his mom.
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!!
First let me say I am a huge fan of Karrine. I've followed her career and enjoyed mostly all of her books but this one fell short. No disrespect to all she's gone through but I couldn't wait until the book finished. It lacked substance and tge concept of the book didn't seem to come alive until the last chapter. For the title to be named Vindicated, it didn't seem she learned much from past experiences that could be applied to her life 10 years later. Again, I'm not judging but I would have liked to read more about how her life changed for the better as opposed to putting herself in the same situations. On the contrary, this novel did give us more insight to her son so I look forward to hearing his side of things one day.
I'm all about the drama in my reading!
Not intended to judge her but I don't see much growth in these 10 years. I am glad that she was able to get away from people who were abusing her though.
