It pays to be a Kardashian-affiliate after all! Pregnant Black Chyna is unstoppable and gracing top Magazine's. First Paper and now Elle, who would have thought. Looking stunning and baring it all, Black Chyna is spilling a thing or two about herself and her baby on the way, and yes her baby's name isn't going to start with a "K", i smell a #KardashianKhaos. See more of her pictures and hear me sound off after the cut.
I usually dont sound off on Magazine Features or spreads but when the Kardashians are involved, there is always drama or something to say. Black Chyna should definitely be having the time of her life an enjoying all the media attention she is getting right now. In a normal Kardashian style, the pregnant mother of one strips down to her lingerie for her feature on Elle magazine's latest issue. Its almost a normal thing for celebrities to strip down for a post-baby shoot so nothing new. Still, who would pass off on a chance to get featured on ELLE, not Chyna.
I must confess, she looks really pretty even at the later days of her pregnancy, and i loved the styling on both her features (Paper & Elle). But, what prompts me to sound off was reading the article and her Interview with the magazine's interviewer, the beautiful Lola Ogunnaike. During her interview, she said some things that stood out as pretty interesting for me, so keep reading and see me highlight them.
ON HER CHILDHOOD AND GROWING UP
"I always liked having my own money and buying my own stuff," she says. "I didn't want to depend on somebody to do it for me." When she was 15, she landed her first job at a local McDonald's in Charles County, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. Management put her on the cash register immediately. "Normally you start on fries or burgers, but I was never back there," she says proudly. "I guess it was because of my personality."
At least she has always been a hardworking hustler and has always known how to fend for herself. She started out great, working humble jobs at McDonald's which honestly a lot of successful people have done. So how did she end up being a stripper?
After a series of fast food gigs, she ended up waitress at Hooters (that's always the first step), and from there, she moved on to the more lucrative world of strip clubs. Her parents couldn't afford to send her to college, so she deferred admission to Johnson & Wales University in Miami and stripped at local Maryland spots for two years. By age 20, she had saved up enough money to pay for tuition. Still dont blame her, its easy to get caught up with the fast life in Miami, especially for a pretty young unsupervised girl. Now who do we blame?
"My mom used to be a stripper," Chyna says, "so she was like, if this is what you want to do, be the best at it."- Tokyo Toni
I guess where every her Dominican ex-stripper mother is, she is throwing back flips and dancing still. Her daughter made it out the hood and from the pole to being on ELLE Magazine. Lets just pray Chyna is a way better mother with better advice and guidance for her little one. She will reveal the sex of her baby on her and Rob's new show premiere on E!
ON DATING TYGA AKA KING GOLD CHAINS AKA KYLIE JENNER'S NEW MAN.
"When you don't want to be in a relationship with somebody anymore, you don't give a fuck what they're doing," she declares. "I was just like, 'thank God I'm out of that situation.' And honestly, it was the best thing that I could've done, because my life has changed so much for the better." I couldn't agree more Chyna, thank goodness!
ON CHANGING ROB KARDASHIAN'S LIFE
"When I linked up with Rob, he was at a point where nobody could really help him," Chyna says. "But I'm the type of person that likes to motivate my friends and help them figure out how they can do better. That's how we really started off." She's proceeded by giving him his space. "When I'm around Rob, I'm never all up in his business, asking questions. I let him be himself and relax," she says. "I'm not a therapist. If he opens up, and I say the wrong thing, he may shut me out. Sometimes it's just best to let people talk about it and get it off their chest. That's how I've been carrying the situation with me and Rob, and so far it's worked out."
ON THEIR FORTH-COMING SHOW.
Rob came up with the idea for their show, and she was immediately on-board. "Doing a show allows us to get our side of the story out to the world," she says. With her future husband, she says she's able to be truly authentic. "Most of the time when you're around the opposite sex, you kinda have to put on a show and not completely be yourself," she says. "Around Rob, I'm always able to speak my mind and speak freely and not care. I can do the craziest stuff or say the craziest stuff, and he doesn't judge me. Like if my stomach hurts, I don't have to pretend. I can go straight to the bathroom. It's those little things that really make a big difference. I want 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." Chyna says that her fiancé appreciates her entrepreneurial spirit. "He likes my work ethic, how I'm a hustler," she says. "I don't care if it's one dollar or a thousand dollars, I'm going to go out and get it.
"We'll bring people into our world, and then they will start rooting for us, and when you have people rooting you on … it always makes things better," she predicts. "Rob is going through his depression, but I feel like if he has the support from his fans and people from the outside, it will help. It helps to have people around to give you that confidence.
ON THE BABY ADOPTING THE FAMOUS KARDASHIAN 'K' NAME.
"You all will find out [the sex of the baby] during the premiere of our show on September 11," she teases. Will their scion have a "K" moniker, like all of his (or her) famous aunties? "No," Chyna says unequivocally. "The baby won't have a K name. We both agreed." As for what comes next for her, she's still working on it. "Once I have this baby, I will figure out what's next," she says. "I'm not focusing on anything else right now."
All said and done, Blac Chyna is really a pretty smart lady and shouldn't be judged any more or less than her media-loving in-laws or anyone else for that matter. She is definitely a product of her background, so the girl cant be completely blamed for most of her decisions or past actions or for being herself, dont you think? Reading this interview warmed my heart up for her, not like it means anything but she gets massacred on a daily on social media. i feel for her.
Still, i think she needs to be a hands-on and more responsible mother, we dont want no poles or sex-tapes in the future. Lastly, she really needs to adopt her real name Angela Renne White and get rid of Blac Chyna, its not like she is still the pole dancing mamba she used to be lol! What do you think of her pictures and her interview, i'd love to hear so feel free to sound off on your own.
