But in her new VH1 talk show, the model, entrepreneur, and activist showcases a different side of her public persona.
Don’t be mistaken—the Amber Rose Show is not holding back. The former stripper and author of self-help book, How to Be a Bad Bitch, is edgier than ever. VH1 promises Rose’s show has the power to reinvent late night talk shows, and after watching her pilot, I agree.
Rose offered her distinct brand of social commentary. She prefaced this in her sardonic, alluring cadence before the show got started.
“We’re going to talk about what’s going on in the world,” said Rose, “But because it’s me, we’re also going to talk about sex.”

Her first news story covered rapper Iggy Azalea’s breakup with Los Angeles Lakers player Nick Young.
“She caught him on the security cameras in their home with another girl,” exclaimed Rose. Rose offered guidance to Azalea—to follow her heart in the wake of a brutal breakup. Upon reflecting, Rose realized her advice might be misguided.
“What’s unfortunate is that whenever I follow my heart,” said Rose, “I end up taking a baseball bat to a man’s car.”
Muva Rose wants to “Netflix and chill” with Justin Bieber…
In a later segment, Rose addressed Justin Bieber’s recent pledge to uphold his high relationship standards. “They have to be awesome, otherwise I’m going to stay home and Netflix and chill,” quoted Rose.
Rose thinks they’d be a perfect match. The diva believes they share a mutual affinity for watching Netflix’s Orange is the New Black—as well as certain adult-themed activities.
Rose hosted a Q&A segment for her fans. Her advice on sexting? Don’t do it. “Just keep it all verbal,” said Rose. “It actually stimulates the mind more.”
Special guest, rapper French Montana, spilled a secret from his past.
Rose’s displayed some serious journalistic chops in her interview with French Montana. She made the rapper feel comfortable, easing into the conversation with an innocuous question. “What’s your number one turn-off in a woman?” asked Rose.
While his answer is too salacious to print here, you can find out for yourself. The full first episode is available on VH1.com.
Viacom is a frontrunner in the media industry when it comes to late night talk shows. It’s rare to find a network that provides a platform for brutally honest, sex-positive commentary. Comedy Central’s Not Safe with Nikki Glaser started the trend, and now VH1 has its own twist with the Amber Rose Show.
