Amber Rose is taking the next logical step in bolstering the Muva empire: a weekly talk show.
Rose will host an untitled weekly VH1 series produced by Dr. Phil and his son Jay McGraw, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Although a specific date hasn't been released, the series is slated to premiere at some point this summer. Rose did not immediately respond to Complex's request for comment.
The format will apparently borrow a page or two from the Dr. Phil playbook, with Rose conducting casual interviews with "celebrity friends," and moderating discussions on everything from pop culture to family matters. If Rose's appearances as a guest on other talks shows are any indication, VH1 (and the TV-viewing world at large) is in for quite a treat:
Rose, of course, has already seen success as both a highly emulated model and burgeoning entrepreneur. Recent headlines about Rose, however, have centered on her growing activism aimed at empowering women in the face of sexism.
Rose hosted a SlutWalk in Los Angeles last year, a march for equality she described to Complex as a natural progression in her own awakening of feminism.
"I never really thought about feminism," Rose said in October. "It wasn't even a thought until I started noticing things that weren't quite right." Rose will host another SlutWalk later this year, the location of which fellow activists can decide by casting a vote on her website.
