Bret Michaels' Love Bus

Although my eyeballs were glued to VH1's Rock of Loves One and Two, I've been watching the third installment, Rock of Love Bus, halfheartedly.

Everything about the show is kind of sad and desperate, starting with its "star," Bret Michaels. He's less attractive every time I see him, and it has nothing to do with his age. The man has the emotional maturity of a 14-year-old.

I'm always more interested in the women who subject themselves to his predictability and ego and sheer boringness on these shows, anyway. I was happy, for example, to see Destiney of ROL2 develop the confidence to start a clothing line on the spin-off, Rock of Love Charm School , which starred Sharon Osbourne, who is infinitely more compelling than Bret Michaels.

I wondered what happened to Daisy, the ROL2 contestant who infuriated Bret when he discovered she shared living quarters with an ex-boyfriend (one of the more annoying things about this self-appointed rock star is that he insists his women be into him and only him, while he is allowed to be into everything and anything that wriggles).

According to VH1, Daisy's on deck to star in her own reality show, Daisy of Love. Could be entertaining.

Hi Terry!

I wondered where the Rock of Love Hepatitis Bus Tour post was! I have only watched snippets of the season online, but I find it boring. It's even more disgusting this year than last, and as you noted, Bret Michaels looks worse than ever. He looks like a full-blown alcoholic who has been propped up for most of these episodes. Again, there are no winners.
