Amber Rose Has a New Talk Show and a Bad Attitude
Can someone remind Amber Rose that she’s supposed to be an adult? She’s raising a child, after all, so you’d expect her to have some level of maturity, right? Just when it seems like she’s got her act together, demonstrating that co-parenting with an ex (in her case, Wiz Khalifa) is entirely possible, she takes yet another opportunity to take shots at Kim Kardashian.
Rose was with Kanye West for a while and it’s understandable that she might have some feelings about his current wife but she needs to let it go. Unfortunately, she doesn’t seem to know how to do that.
In a recent interview with New York Daily News, Rose said (of Kim’s sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie): “Let’s face it. The only reason these girls have a career is because their older sister had a little fun on tape.”
Sure, back in 2007, footage of Kim getting down with her then-boyfriend, Ray J, got out and, yes, it definitely gave her some fame but let’s remember two things. First, a lot of people have sex tapes floating around but it hasn’t truly made them famous. Second, 32-year-old Rose is a former stripper herself so… Plus, more than one person has suggested that the only reason we even know the name Amber Rose is because she dated Kanye. Enough said!
It’s commendable that she has become involved with SlutWalks in an effort to promote female empowerment while ending slut-shaming but then she’ll turn around and bring up Kim’s sex tape!
Of course, she uses Kanye as an example of the type of behavior she’s fighting to stop. “I deal with talk like that every day,” she said. “I recently dealt with that when my ex [West] said he had to take 30 showers after he’d been with me. We were happy when we were together and now I’m getting slut-shamed because we’re not anymore … and it’s unfair. I’m sick of it and I’m here for my girls.”
Let’s not naively assume, however, that Amber Rose is just doing this to be a good person. It’s just as plausible to assume that she’s just drumming up a little publicity for her upcoming VH1 talk show, The Amber Rose Show, which is being produced by Dr. Phil. Sounds like a trainwreck already!
The exotic dancer says she hopes to create a “sex-positive” platform, where guests can feel comfortable talking about modern issues. “I want to be like Wendy [Williams], but tell people how it really is … because I live there,” she explained. “We’ll have in-studio guests, and I’ll go out on the street to get opinions from people on topics like how long before you should have sex with a guy, how long before you let him meet your kids.”
She’s certainly not suffering for self-confidence, either. She claims that she got the deal because the producers “loved” her and that Dr. Phil was “blown away by the pilot.” Sigh.
When asked if she’d be parading her frenemies and exes in front of her audience for our entertainment, Rose simply said: “We are not going there.” We’ll see…
