Former model Amber Rose, author of How to Be a Bad Bitch, is taking her talents to the small screen: She’s getting her own talk show, and Dr. Phil will be an executive producer.

The currently untitled series will air on VH1 and will host celebrity conversations on topics such as “pop culture, motherhood, relationships, friendships, race and entrepreneurship,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Rose is no stranger to candid interviews: She often speaks out about women’s issues in the media, like when she defended Kim Kardashian’s controversial nude selfie. “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,” said VH1 general manager Chris McCarthy. “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.”

Earlier this year, Rose wrote about how she learned to stop caring what others think for TIME and Motto. “What I’ve realized is that, when you care too much, you’re not living at your full potential,” she wrote. “When you really stop caring about what people say, that’s when you really start living. It’s such an amazing feeling. It’s about loving who you are, owning who you are and knowing that it’s O.K. to live your life how you want to live it.”

She seeks to bring this same attitude to her show: “I am very excited to be joining forces with such an amazing network to deliver a fresh perspective on the primetime talk show,” Rose told The Hollywood Reporter. “Join us as we break all the rules and redefine late-night.”

The show doesn’t yet have a premiere date, but VH1 says it will begin airing this summer.
