Slut shaming?

Cant believe this episode and audience talk about being a strong woman and stripped to provide for a child....seriously? Stripping is a job for a bitch who aint got credentials, so you are saying your only option was to show everyone your temple for a dollar$! How is that strong? That is weak, you proved u are not worthy of nothing more than being naked for a few bucks....go get an education and a real job! !! Thats not slut shaming and if you feel shamed for your did That, noone else did! Gtfoh

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

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.
