In an all new interview with VH1, Bret Michaels opens up about Taya, his career and his openess to doing another season of Rock of Love. Below are some excerpts from the interview –
What you just taped could be the very last episode of Rock of Love, but I don’t feel like it was mourned properly.
Whether it is or isn’t the last is yet to be seen, as far as what happens with me and Taya. That’s what we were in this trailer talking about [before this interview]: Where does this go? Do we date? Do we take it little by little? When you say “committed relationship,” you’re asking someone for a lot. She lives in Cleveland with her son. She travels. I travel. And another thing is that I’m getting much better at advice than I am at finding love. Bret is the rock doc of love. That’s my new thing. It seemed like I saved everyone’s relationship but mine. Everyone got married, had kids, got engaged, got back with their boyfriend.
I guess I had that impression that this was the end, because you said you weren’t going to do this again at the beginning of the season.
I meant that sincerely. After the Ambre thing, I didn’t know if I could do it all over again. I talked to Ambre about it right before the show started taping, just to basically telling her that I wasn’t trying to throw her under the bus by doing this show. And I think people can sense it. You saw what happened after the reunion taping: I talked to those girls. I talked to Maria [who was hysterical over not getting to say anything to Bret well after the lights had gone down]. It wasn’t like, “Hey, I’m done with you. Thanks. It was all TV.” I think the world gets that sincerity. I enjoy being with these girls. I enjoy hanging with them. I’ll see almost all of these girls again at my shows or just hanging out.
Any thoughts on making out with Mindy during the reunion?
I think that I absolutely made the right choice with Taya. But when Mindy walked up and gave me that kiss…My heart is broken that Mindy didn’t say to me on the island that she loved me. I really like Mindy. Me and Mindy need to get together and speak. I didn’t know she was having all those emotional love moments. I couldn’t read her. Taya, she’s good. Whether she was playing me or not, she’s good.
Did you pay attention to Rock of Love Charm School?
Oh yeah. And I plan on watching Daisy of Love, too. I just found out that Megan’s going to have a show. She’s a character, man. She should have a show. But Daisy, she was my heroin. I was sexually addicted to her. I think she’s gonna have a pretty good time on her show.
Have you seen the Eminem video?
I thought it was f***ing hilarious. He always does spoofs of people, and I think what he did was great. When you get into something like that, it’s like you’re being accepted into pop culture. Eminem is kind of like my younger, hotter, better-looking brother. That video kinda made me jealous (laughs).
If this is the end, pop culture is going to be left with a void. There is nothing like Rock of Love.
We’ll see what happens with Taya. If it works out, maybe I can become some sort of love adviser. If not, I’d love to come back and do it all again.
