Jes reportedly dumps Bret Michaels; will he now star in Rock of Love 2?

We expect even less in terms of true love from VH1’s ridiculous dating reality series than we do from, say, The Bachelor, so it’s no surprise at all that Bret Michaels’ relationship with Jes Rickleff has reportedly ended.

Page Six reports that “[s]ources tell The Post’s Melissa Jane Kronfeld that Michaels was informed by the pink-haired punk rocker over the phone that she had taken up with a Chicago clothing designer upon returning home to the windy city.”

If true, that means Bret Michaels is now available to be the rock star for Rock of Love 2. The show concludes its scheduled casting for a second season today in Las Vegas.
