Bret Michaels reality tv show
…Bret’s reality show on Vh1 starts on July 15, 2007, and runs for two-and-a-half months. Called “Rock of Love with Bret Michaels,” it pits 25 beautiful women against each other in a contest to win Bret’s affections. He describes the series as a genuine reality show, “as real as it gets,” and an honest attempt to find a girlfriend.
He adds, “I’ve done a lot of crazy things in my life, a lot of crazy things, but this would be the most bizarre thing I’ve ever done. I’ve never dated in this fashion before, and the show is entertaining to say the least.” He reports that prior to the show, he’d always been either in a long-term relationship or on the road. Consequently, the standard rituals of courtship were unfamiliar to him, and much of the show’s humor is associated with watching him “stumble and bumble” through dates.
Bret’s contract mandates that the reality show clearly acknowledge his diabetes. It was very important to him to convey the fact that he has survived well with it for a long time. Obviously, how much of his daily life with diabetes is portrayed will depend upon how the show is edited. During the filming, however, he explained diabetes to all the women, and he tested his blood sugar and injected his insulin in front of them. All of them were interested and genuinely concerned, Bret says.
