It will reportedly appear in a late night slot. “I am very excited to be joining forces with such an amazing network to deliver a fresh perspective on the prime time talk show,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “Join us as we break all the rules and redefine late-night.” Rose, 32, rose to fame after appearing in hip hop videos and dating rappers Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa, the latter of which she has a three-year-old son Sebastian Taylor Thomaz with. Since then she has been a regularly made the headlines with her connections to high-profile musicians, celebrities and sports stars. In particular, her best friend, Blac Chyna, is currently dating Rob Kardashian, the brother of West’s wife Kim Kardashian.

Speaking about the new TV show, VH1 General Manager Chris McCarthy says, “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.”
