Blac Chyna has opened up about a number of aspects of her life in a new interview with Elle USA.
Chyna, whose real name is Angela Renee, spoke about her relationship with the Kardashian family and how happy she was with Rob Kardashian.
The 28-year-old said about their show debuting on E! this September, “I wanted to show people my personality, that I’m not just a pretty face or what some people paint me out to be: this bad person, this stripper ho. I want them to see me as a mom, a business-woman, a growing being.”
The mother-of-one said she and soon-to-be husband, Rob, unanimously decided not to name their child with anything “K.” Ouch to the Kardashians if it’s a baby girl since they are all into the letter ‘K’.
We hear wedding bells ringing as she disclosed the duo will be tying the knot towards the end of the year. After the birth of their baby.
Elle USA quoted Buzzfeed writer Sylvia Obell’s essay on the ulterior motives to Chyna’s maneuvers: “Chyna was making calculated moves to close in on her own empire with a precision and finesse that not even the Kardashians saw coming…And so the Kardashians, a family often accused of stealing black men, black features, and black culture, got beat at their own game by a black woman.”
Lola Ogunnaike also for ELLE USA quoted the editor in chief of Vibe magazine who shared what millions already had in mind, “Chyna popped up, and all of sudden she’s pregnant, and now she’s got one of the most powerful pieces on the chess board,” he says, referring to Rob. As for whether or not she loves her husband-to-be: “I think she loves him,” Thomas stated. “But I think it was a power move, initially. Let’s not kid ourselves. A lot of these celebrity couples are really only business deals.”
We can relate.
