A sad day for rock star groupies and skanks all around the world as Bret Michaels is officially off the market!
It all went down on Monday night’s finale of his VH1 reality show, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It, during which he got down on one knee and proposed to his on-off girlfriend of 16 years Kristi Gibson.
“Please say yes or the rejection will kill me right now,” pleaded Brett and she said yes! “She’s the one who put up with me all these years,” Michaels tells UsWeekly of his bride-to-be.
Immediately following the proposal, Bret and Kristi broke the happy news to their little girls. Bret said, “[I told them] ‘I did it! We’ll all be together forever! Family hug!’”
Bret and Kristi have two daughters together — Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BRET’S ENGAGEMENT?
There’s finally some good news regarding Bret Michael’s health. According to his reps, Brett is responding well to tests and treatments.
“Michaels remains under 24-hour observation in the ICU and is in positive spirits. He is responding well to tests and treatments,” says his reps in a statement. “Even though today was a minor setback, doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery.”
Bret is now beginning what some say will be a slow and painful recovery from a brain hemorrhage. The 47 year-old rocker and former Rock of Lovestar is however having to deal with a minor setback as he was diagnosed with a side effect that leads to seizures, according to his reps. Also complicating his recovery is the fact that Bret had an emergency appendectomy earlier this month, and also suffers from Type 1 diabetes.
Bret is however conscious and in critical but stable condition. There is also some speculation that Bret’s head injury is a result of the injury he suffered last year at the Tony Awards when from a prop struck him at the show. It is however possible the cause of Bret’s injury may never be found as is often the case with many patients with this condition.
Donald Trump, Bret’s boss on Celebrity Apprentice, sent Bret some well wishes over the weekend. “I am deeply saddened to hear about Bret Michaels and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time. He’s a great competitor and champion and I hope he will be fine,” said Donald to UsWeekly.
According to PEOPLE, Bret, 47, was rushed to an undisclosed hospital Thursday night after complaining of excruciating headaches. A source says, “After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation.”
And just how serious is Bret’s condition? Well according to TMZ, those not receiving proper medical treatment after suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage have a 20% to 30% chance of experiencing a second bleed within the first month, and that second bleed yields a 70% mortality rate.
The good news for now is Bret is said to be “awake, in good spirits and talking.” Rock of Love season 2 winner Ambre Laketells TMZ she’s spoken with people who are close to Bret who say he’s stabilized and conscious. However the next 24 to 48 hours are said to be critical, and Bret will be closely monitored.
Also speaking out is ROL season 3 winner, Taya Parker. Taya, who is no longer with Bret, spoke to RadarOnline, giving them the following statement: “It’s been a very difficult time. Between his appendectomy and this current situation, everyone that cares for him has been vigilant with their prayers and hopes for a full recovery. My heart and thoughts are with him always. Bret’s determination and drive have always been one of his most endearing qualities. His love for his family and his fans makes his heart a heart that’s larger than life. Bret has overcome many adversities and struggles in his life, and he always handles himself with dignity. I could not be more proud of him, the person he is, and the loves that drive his life.”
Megan Hauserman’s new show, Megan Wants A Millionaire, is set to premier tonight on VH1 at 9/8c. Megan, who is arguably one of the more infamous famous VH1 reality stars, is set on finding true love as long as there’s millions involved.
Megan recently spoke to the Jacksonville Observer about her new show and getting over Bret Michaels. Megan appeared on the 2nd season of Rock of Love.
“I really was heartbroken over him for a long time,” Megan admitted about Bret. “I went on there and I did fall in love with him, but we remain friends.”
And how did her new dating show come about? “It was something that I happened to say on Charm School– that I wanted to be a trophy wife,” Megan explained. “The next thing I knew, there were hundreds and thousands of men applying for the job. You have to be careful what you wish for, but it could be a lot worse.”

A lot of VH1 fans are wondering if Bret Michaels is still with Rock of Love Bus winner – Taya Parker. Well the answer seems to depend on who you ask. Bret said in a recent interview with amNewYork that he is seeing Taya in a “fun way” and says he is still dating other women. The full quote is below -
‘It should be called Rock of Dating,’ he said at the Lipton Gift Lounge backstage at the Tony Awards…Michaels still sees recent winner Taya Parker, but only in a ‘fun’ way — and goes out with other ladies, too.
Bret also says he might be open to doing a 4th season of Rock of Love. Taya however says she and Bret are in a relationship and are both happy. She has herself listed as being in a relationship on her myspace. She also blogged about her relationship with Bret saying -
Bret and I are doing great! We have been taking a much needed break from the spotlight and cameras to get to know each other. We are having a blast! He’s adorable to cuddle and watch movies with… he just makes me laugh and laugh! You should see him watching “Role Models!” It’s honestly the most precious display of boyish behavior… I’m definitely soooo addicted to his smile! We will see each other again soon… I am counting down the days.
Interesting, something tells me Rock of Love 4 will be in the works soon.
Peopleis also reporting that Bret’s tour bus suffered an accident recently, but fortunately no injuries were reported. Bret and his crew were “released from the scene” after an investigation.
Rock of Love star, Bret Michaels may have suffered a fractured nose and a busted lip after injuring himself during an opening number at the 63rd annual Tony Awardswhich took place Sunday night, his rep announced Monday.
During the elaborate musical number that featured Dolly Parton, Elton John and Liza Minnelli, the reality star was knocked to the ground after running into a piece of scenery. He had hit the stage to perform “Nothin’ But a Good Time” with his band Poison and the cast of Broadway’s Rock of Ages.
Bret informed Usmagazine before the accident, “I came here for one reason – to put on the show and then go party. I’m ready to go party and have a good time.” Following the accident, Michaels went to the hospitals to get his X-rays.
Despite the accident, his publicist says that Michaels had a blast performing at the awards.
In an all new interview with VH1, Brittaney “Jasmineva” Starr talks about her time on Charm School. She talks about being ostracized, being empowered from porn, bathroom imprisonment and how she’s actually “a pretty normal person at home.”
Below are excepts from her new interview -
Your time on the show seemed tumultuous.
Yeah, it was OK. I was disappointed not to see Sharon Osbourne. I know how 51 Minds edits and the role they insist on making me play into, and I’d never have agreed to go on another show for them had I known the headmistress wasn’t going to be Sharon. I think she’s an amazing woman and I have the highest respect for her and her family.
But not Ricki Lake?
I have respect for Ricki, but I don’t follow her. Sharon’s the coolest. I was really excited to meet her. Ricki seemed nice until I saw the show and what she said about me, which wasn’t nice of her.
Are you talking about her comment about porn not being empowering?
No! She’d barely met me for five minutes and she called me a kook.
During your exit interview, though, you did admit to being “a little psycho.”
(Laughs) You know when I was wearing the pink DJ headphones and Stryker asked me about them? I replied that I wanted to represent that I was a DJ so the world would know what I did, since the show kept making me out as the crazy ex-porn star. So they of course edited that out and just showed my “wicka-wicka” dance, when I was emulating scratching records. Watching that, I totally laughed at myself. I thought it was funny how they edited all the silly stuff together. What’s life without laughter, right?
This season of Charm School 3 has been filled with some major drama. Evidently mixing the Rock of Love Busgirls with the Real Chance of Lovegirls was a bad idea, or perhaps a genius idea? Depends on who you ask.
Two girls – one from each show- ended up quiting during the last episode. In this new interview with VH1, Farrah talks about her reasons for quitting and defends her “ghetto” comments. Below are excerpts from her interview plus more pictures of Farrah below -
I didn’t really understand why you were getting so upset at the elimination that led to your dropping out.
I was so pissed, I was actually pacing back and forth. Whenever they were up there, the girls from Real Chance of Love were standing there acting like they were total angels, and that’s fine. When I do stuff that’s wrong, like locking Brittaney Starr in the bathroom, I try to act like an angel, too. But they were making little comments. I don’t remember what they were, but it was just pissing me off. They were that mad that one of the Real Chance of Love girls was up there. Two of the Rock of Love girls were up there. Hello? Two Rock of Love girls already got sent home. It was hard to stand there and listen to all their comments, and it was frustrating that Ricki couldn’t hear them.
So it was just comments that bothered you enough to want to leave?
I knew that as soon as one of the Real Chance of Love girls was sent home, the rest were going to explode, because that’s what they do. It was never-ending. They were yelling the whole time, and when I say “they,” I mean Bay Bay Bay, So Hood, Ki Ki, Risky, K.O and Brittaney Starr. All that yelling was hard to deal with. I had to drink a lot to tolerate it.
Did Ricki momentarily convince you to stay after that?
I felt sorry for Ricki at that point. I know she didn’t want us to leave, but I was thinking at that point that she didn’t know what she was getting herself into. Neither did we, and I’m sure the Real Chance of Love girls felt the same way, because they didn’t want to be around us, either. Ricki didn’t know what to do, and I felt sorry for her because she’s a really sweet person.
You definitely did seem more willing than most to bridge the gap between the shows. You reached out to So Hood after Marcia called her “So Ho.”
Yeah, I tried to talk to her and she was like, “Whatever.” I talked to Ki Ki on the bus on the way there. She was nice and I was nice to her. Bay Bay Bay and I had a really good conversation one time and she was really sweet. The Real Chance girls really didn’t do anything to me besides saying, “Kiss my black ass,” and setting Brittaney Starr up to say stuff to me. But they weren’t looking to be friends, I don’t think. I really regret leaving because I know once a few people left, the group would be smaller and everyone would blend together.
