Stephanie Opal Weinstein (born 1973) is an American musician. She is the ex-wife of Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo. They were married on the 31st of October 2001, on Anselmo's property in Louisiana. That same year they created an acoustic band called Southern Isolation, releasing a self-titled EP. The original EP contained four songs, with the re-release containing a fifth song, "Southern Man I Am" in which Anselmo joined Weinstein on vocals. Before Southern Isolation, Weinstein was in a New Orleans based band called Virago. They released one album called Transition on St. Rock records. Weinstein sang and wrote/co-wrote several of their songs. During her time with Anselmo, Weinstein joined several of his side projects including Viking Crown, the unreleased Body and Blood, and the death metal band Necrophagia. She appeared in Necrophagia's DVD release "Through the Eyes of the Dead", and sang back up vocals along with Anselmo's sister on Down's song "Landing on the Mountains of Meggido" from Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow. In 2004, Weinstein and Anselmo divorced. Later that year she auctioned off some items she was given by Anselmo during the time they were together.[1] The comment on the auctions said:

"To all of you who question my motives for putting items on eBay — RELAX — these are things that will mean more to you than me. I simply am keeping those possessions and memories that I wanted. There's nothing more to it. Thanks & enjoy!"

Weinstein took a hiatus from the music scene after her divorce with Anselmo, but has since reunited with Necrophagia but has yet to be on any of their new material.
