    14 Things We Learned From Blac Chyna's First In-Depth Interview

    The reality show is Rob's idea!?

    Yesterday, Elle released an exclusive interview with Blac Chyna and it’s the first time she’s given an in-depth interview since she beat the Kardashian’s at their own game. Here are some of the most important things we learned:

    1. She's an independent woman, who is all about her coin.

    "I always liked having my own money and buying my own stuff," she tells Elle. "I didn't want to depend on somebody to do it for me." She mentions later in the interview that her work ethic is something Rob loves about her.

    2. Her first job was at a McDonald's.

    And even there she strived to be the best. "Normally you start on fries or burgers, but I was never back there," she told Elle proudly. "I guess it was because of my personality."

    3. She really did start stripping to pay for college.

    Her parents couldn’t afford to send her to school, so she deferred admission to Johnson & Wales University in Miami and began stripping in Maryland. By the time she turned 20, she had enough money to pay tuition, but the Miami strip-club scene proved to be too tempting. She tried to do both but couldn't keep up the schedule. "I was falling asleep all the time in class. It wasn't working out for me," she said. She ultimately dropped out and began dancing/modeling full time.

    4. She once made $15,000 in one night at King of Diamonds.

    Can't help but wonder if that was one of the nights Drake came and saw her dance. I mean, he did say it would be "worth the flight."

    5. Tyga is "kind of cheap."

    The rapper only paid her $2,500 for co-starring in his "Rack City" music video. "I should've gotten more. He's kinda cheap," she said.

    6. She claims Kylie Jenner and Tyga's shots at her during their feud didn't affect her.

    "When you don't want to be in a relationship with somebody anymore, you don't give a fuck what they're doing," Chyna said. "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."

    7. She and Rob connected because of her desire to help him do better.

    "When I linked up with Rob, he was at a point where nobody could really help him," Chyna said. "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."

    8. Her and Rob's relationship works because she lets him be himself and relax.

    Despite what the Rob & Chyna trailer may have you thinking, she claims she isn't always in Rob's business, asking him what he's doing. She says she likes to make him feel relaxed around her, so that he can be himself. "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."

    9. The reality show was apparently Rob's idea.

    I'm just gonna leave this one here.

    10. She predicts the show will make people root for them as a couple and help Rob's battle with depression.

    "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," she said.

    11. They're not ruling out having a wedding special.

    She and Rob plan to get married later this year after their baby is born. Wouldn't be surprised if Grandma Kris is already working on a deal with E! that's similar to Rob's sister's Kim and Khloe's wedding specials.

    12. We'll find out the sex of their baby during the show's premiere.

    But it's name won't begin with a "K" either way.

    13. Everything is good between her and the Kardashians.
