EXES ARE TALKIN': Alexis Phifer Talks To VIBE About Life After Kayne & Offers Advice For Amber Rose

All ex-girlfriends of Kanye West don't crave the spotlight or go on to become tabloid fodder.  Some of them fade to the back and live their lives.  By their own choice.

Alexis Phifer, Kanye's one time fiancee and arm candy of Mr. West.  She recently sat down with VIBE to talk about life after Kanye and what she thinks about the whole Amber Rose situation. See the highlights inside....

Alexis Phifer recently sat for an interview with VIBE talking about her life post-Kanye and why you won't be seeing her half-naked in KING or in some other rapper's video.

 

Even though you were making moves pre-spotlight, many folks were introduced to you via Kanye West. How have these last years been with less media attention?


I think after experiencing being with somebody that is a celebrity, it's really nice to have your anonymity. I'm a mom so I would much rather be able to be out with my son and have nobody recognize me. I really think that's a cool thing as opposed to doing red carpets or something like that, but only if it's really pertaining to my line because that's what I'm trying to sell… I'm not really trying to sell myself.

Guess we can assume there will never be an Alexis reality show?


(Laughs) I've been approached a few times… I don't know, first and foremost I'm a mother and I just feel like it's important to be represented a certain way and it's a lot to put your image and the things you say, or how you're perceived into someone else's hand and I just haven't been comfortable with that. Now if it was something like a documentary style, maybe. But I'm not interested in fighting with some girl or talking about my ex because those relationships are personal. I mean the album [808s & Heartbreak] was bad enough at first, but a TV show, I don't know, it would have to be real tasteful.

Another one of Kanye’s exes, Amber Rose, once went on the radio and said something to the effect of "You see Kanye's other ex, he was with her for six years, took her the same places and no one even remembers her name now..." Did that sting?


I believe that you get what you want out of a situation and Kanye will tell you, that I didn't [want that attention]. It's weird. I'll get on the red carpet and over-criticize myself. I don't want that attention. She wanted that and that's what she got out of it. But if I want to go to King magazine [Ed Note: This interview was conducted prior to Amber Rose's June 2011 King cover] right now and be in a sexy bathing suit I'm sure I'd generate some type of interest. It's just the decisions you make that put you where you are. She is where she's at because that's where she wants to be and I'm where I'm at because that's where I want to be also. I was kind of like "Girl please." I just laughed that off, brushed that one right off my shoulders. She doesn't really know what she's saying, so I can't even be mad at her. She doesn't even know the half.

What was your reaction to seeing those two for the first time?

 

I think that at that point, you know sometimes you go through things and you're like "I just want to do something different" and I think that's what he was experiencing at that time so he just did something different. Not to say that she's bad and I'm good, nothing like that, but that's just what he wanted at that time.

If you had to give any type of advice to Amber since she’s now an infamous Kanye West ex, what you would tell her?


I have no comment on that. I just have no words for her. But I wish her luck in her future, everybody deserves somebody.

Has it been hard getting rid of that tag of being 'Ye's fiancée? Is that something you consciously wanted to rid yourself of?


No, it was just a part of my life, but I'm really confident in who I am and what it is I do. Anybody who meets me and gets to know me, I don't think it would sway their decision either way on whether they like me or not. Either they will or they won't.

What are the three most important lessons you've learned from being in this crazy industry?


I've learned that no matter what, you always have to be yourself and hold your head up high and have respect for yourself. I've learned that the industry can get a bad rep, but if you're able to be around certain people and experience new things, just take it as something that's good and learn from it and be inspired by it because there is definitely inspiration. And about being in a high profile relationship... just keep your business to yourself.

 

I knew I liked Alexis for a reason....

Everyone that commented on

Everyone that commented on this bashing Alexis, implying that she wanted media attention lack common knowledge. This is a excerpt from the interview, the entire interview was done to discuss her clothing line, but of course being the ex of Kanye she was asked about it. What's posted above are only the parts of the interview that were about Kanye and the Amber situation. This woman is obviously very intelligent and classy, and she didn't dish any intimate details about their relationship nor did she make brash comments about Amber. She didn't and doesn't want any media attention, like she said, she got what she wanted and Amber got what she wanted. With Kanye's starpower, she could have easily used that to promote her line, but she didn't.

They were interviewing her about her clothing line, so of course they were going to ask her about Ye. The real question is why did Amber bring her up in the first place.

The interview was tasteful,

The interview was tasteful, but I'm still wondering why it was conducted. Unless you guys only took an excerpt, it appears that she's contradicting her whole interview by talking about things that pertain to her ex.. ..On another note, call me cynical but I always am put off by those who impose some kind of self righteousness in the limelight (not to say she does, but in general). The ones who always go out of their way to construct an image of "positivity" and are over exuberant in maintaining their class by not showcasing skin or seeming like fame mongers are often times the one's who get blasted in the limelight for doing some shady stuff. (Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, Tiger Woods, Bishop Eddie Long, a slew of politicians and so on and so forth). Anytime people preach, lol I am like oh they have some mess in their closet... NEXT.

Classy, not classy, all i

Classy, not classy, all i know is this from this woman's answers, she's smart. She didn't get caught up in the hype. It's not always about what you say, your actions will disclose the REAL you. Folks need to take a que from her on the real and get their ish together but then again, like she said 'she wants what she wants and others want what they want'. If they want the shine and don't care how they get it then by all means take what you get but don't be mad when your image takes a hit.

Without knowing her, she

Without knowing her, she seems very well-adjusted and absolutely fantastic! I hope all her dreams for herself and her child come true. **Side note** I wish more AA celebs were tasteful and intelligent like this (or at least appeared so) but unfortunately, the tasteful/smart ones never like the limelight. We just need more role modelesque public figures of WIDESPREAD/MAINSTREAM celebrity status, since unfortunately, young girls and boys like to imitate the "idiot box." (-OR- parents could just do their jobs..lol)

She seems like she has more

She seems like she has more sense than Kanye, that's for sure. I believe that Kanye has been in a spiraled downfall ever since he lost his mother. He's on some whole other stuff right now. I go out my way not to listen to his devil inspired music. I feel bad for the dude it must be real lonely at the top. Amber is the same way she's the new age harlot. Both of them are trouble.

Alexis handled that just as I would. She loved Ye at one time and probably still does but she must move on with her life. Ye was a handfull I'm more than sure. Can you imagine that ego around the house? I pray she find love (if she hasn't already) The best revenge is success!
