What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the Amber Rose Show is a talk show that features some explicit conversations about sex and related topics. There are some crude references and humor, lighthearted references to women fighting, and partially nude pictures (bare backside) of the host. But the show also contains messages about being sexually responsible and having a positive body image. The language is strong (curses bleeped), and there are references to social media sites such as Twitter.

What's the story?

Produced by Dr. Phil McGraw, the AMBER ROSE SHOW is a talk show hosted by model and actress Amber Rose. From discussing the latest celebrity breakups and shake-ups to answering questions about how to flirt, Rose offers her thoughts about everything in her own unique way. With the help of therapist Chris Donahue, she dispenses sex and relationship advice. Guest celebs such as rapper French Montana join her, while street interviews and occasional prerecorded spoofs are also featured.

Is it any good?

This series offers the opportunity to hear Amber Rose unapologetically offer her own unique thoughts about the world around her. She's likable and forthright, but, like most talk shows, this one is extremely host-centered, and much of what is discussed centers on her. The conversations often feel superficial. Her street interviews can be crude, too.

However, during these conversations, Rose also offers some empowering messages, including being comfortable with one's own sexuality and the importance of not taking certain risks. This includes having safe sex, going to the doctor, and not posting explicit pictures on the internet. She takes a tough stand against body shaming, too. It's not for everyone, but Amber Rose fans will find it appealing.
