Amber Rose’s journey to cementing herself as an independent celebrity has been nothing short of surprising as she’s done everything from writing a self-help book, to directing the famous pro-feminist Slut Walk, and making her mark in the world of emojis. Now, Rose is expanding her brand, once again, with the news that she’s going to have her own talk show.
According to media reports, Rose just inked a deal with Vh1 to launch an as-yet-untitled weekly talk show this summer. The talk show will be produced by talk-show titan Dr. Phil and his son Jay McGraw’s Stage 29 Productions. Reality TV titan Mona Scott-Young will serve as a consulting executive producer.
As expected, the series will reportedly focus on Rose having candid conversations with celebrity friends about “pop culture, motherhood, relationships, friendships, race and entrepreneurship.”
Rose, who will share executive producer credits alongside her business partner, Walter Mosley, spoke on her new TV deal with Vh1 and explained how excited she is to become a talk-show queen.
“I am very excited to be joining forces with such an amazing network to deliver a fresh perspective on the prime-time talk show. Join us as we break all the rules and redefine late-night. Watch out Fallon, here comes Muva!”
Vh1 General Manager Chris McCarthy also spoke about the deal and explained why the network decided to give Rose a shot.
“Amber has inspired millions of young women by overcoming homelessness to become a wildly successful entrepreneur,” McCarthy said. “A true multihyphenate, she is a devoted mother, a strong advocate for women’s rights and a celebrated author — all of which make her an ideal host. Amber is a perfect addition to the Vh1 family because our audience is interested in hearing unique perspectives from those who are unapologetically themselves and not afraid to take a stand on issues they are passionate about.”
Congratulations to Rose on her new show and we’re interested to see how audiences receive it this summer.
