Rose just revealed that she doesn’t believe in the existence of God or Jesus but claimed Buddhism was something more up her alley. The television personality joined Raq on the “It’s Tricky” podcast (Via TMZ) and shared her thoughts on religion.

Ms. Rose revealed that between Christianity and science, the latter’s explanation of how humans came to be made much more sense to her. The model, however, clarified that Scientology wasn’t in the books for her.

The 38-year-old revealed that she grew up in a church-going family and was constantly told by her mother to avoid several television shows linked to “the devil.” Despite how she was raised, Rose admitted that she only came up with more questions than answers, especially when looking at the religion’s Bible stories.

Since the movement began in 2015, Rose has been one of the leading faces of the SlutWalk movement. The Los Angeles match is held annually to protest rape culture, support sexual assault victims, and, of course, curb slut shaming.

Following Kim Kardashian and her ex-husband West’s split early this year, several commentators have called out the rapper for his borderline obsessive behavior toward the reality tv star post-split.

Rose also talked about the issue but reflected on the time she split from West and the public’s reaction to his comments. According to the model, during that period, she was the recipient of “a lot of punches, figuratively” in terms of how the public saw things.

She mentioned a time during the new stages of the breakup when the rapper had “bullied” her and said offensive jokes at her expense. The “Donda” artist notably said after breaking up with her, he needed to “take 30 showers.” Rose revealed that at the time, she felt like the public thought, “You didn’t deserve him; he’s much better than you.”

Still talking about the public’s reaction after her stint with West, Rose said that she saw progress concerning how people viewed toxicity and their reaction to it. They were now more willing to point out when a person was in the wrong.

After her high-flying relationship with West, Rose went on to date Wiz Khalifa and then married the rapper. The duo parted ways in 2016 but had a son together during the marriage. While talking about her fame, the model acknowledged that it initially came from her relationship with celebrities and, because of that, felt scrutinized and caricatured most of the time. She revealed this was primarily due to her past profession as a stripper.
