Boys don't cry, y'all. That goes double for boys in hair bands. Singer, Rock of Love star, and former Celebrity Apprentice winner Bret Michaels has had his fair share of heartache, whether its health issues, his love life, or his receding hairline (you're not fooling anyone with that bandana, buddy!). Now, he's having to fight off some pretty serious and damaging rumors.
It appears that every rose truly does have its thorn, and if you're Bret that thorn is All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. If you believe the crazy gossip surrounding the new season of Donald Trump's boardroom bonanza, Bret wants to set the record straight: he most certainly did NOT bawl like a baby when he was the first "celebrity" to hear the words, "You're fired!"
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.
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.
We told you last weekabout Rock of Love Bus’ Taya giving lap dances amongst other things when she visited the Howard Stern show last December. Well it seems, Taya continued her “classy” act while also visiting the OpieandAnothony radio show last December. Below is a video of Taya getting naked for the DJs and allowing them to feel up on her. Wonder what Bret feels about this. The link to the Video is – Taya Video (It contains nudity).
Newly crowned Rock of Love Bus winner Taya Parker made such a big fuss on the show about being a classy lady but do these pictures from her December 2008 appearance on the Howard Stern show say otherwise? You be the judge.
The show had finished taping when she made this appearance. Taya was picked as the Rock of Love bus winner by Bret Michaels over Mindy. Taya also talked about being a stripper dancer, and was very vivid about her sex life.
“Taya said she started as an exotic dancer and eventually sent some pictures into Penthouse. Both girls said they were into anal sex, which led Howard to speculate that men would be happier with uninhibited girls like them. Teagan said he was right: “[They’re] less likely to stray.”
Howard turned to Taya and asked if she gave private dances, she said she used to, but now she just usually does burlesque-type performances.”
What you do think about Taya winning Rock of Love Bus?
VH1 Charm School/Rock of Love alum Megan Hauserman is suing former Charm School host Sharon Osbourne. Megan filed suit today in L.A. County Superior Court.
This is regarding the beat down that took place during the Charm School reunion when Megan told Sharon she was famous only because she managed a brain dead rock star aka Ozzy Osbourne. This caused Sharon to run across the stage, punching and grabbing her by the hair and refusing to let go. Hauserman is suing Osbourne for battery, negligence and infliction of emotional distress according to TMZ.
