Bret Michaels says Ambre is “is really nice and cool”; will “never say never” about third season

On last night’s finale of Rock of Love 2, Bret Michaels chose 37-year-old actress and TV show host Ambre over 25-year-old crazy Daisy, but he’s not in love with Ambre.

When asked if he found “true love,” Bret said, “I found someone who is really nice and cool and gets rock ‘n’ roll. We can see when it goes from here,” he told the AP. But he noted that he didn’t expect to find a life-long mate. “I said this from day one: I went into this to have fun and maybe find someone to like. True love is not going to be found instantly on a TV show. That is only for scripted shows. … Anyone thinking they are going into a TV show finding love, they might find someone that they like and eventually learn to like them more. I think finding true love, I never went in with that intent,” he said.

For her part, Ambre told VH1 that while she “absolutely” has the same feelings for him she did at the end of the show, she’s now “dating Bret. I’m not disillusioned. I don’t think we’re going to run off and get married. We’re dating and we’re going to see how this dating process holds, because we were in Cancun, we were on these challenges, I was fighting for love. Now it’s time to see how this works in the real world.”

If it doesn’t work out with her, Bret doesn’t rule out a third season, but also doesn’t sound enthusiastic about the possibility of Rock of Love 3. “I don’t know … We are looking to do a show called ‘Bret Michaels Big Rock Road Show’ which is just rockers gone wild on the road. I never say never. Right now I am not mentally there. I am having fun doing it and I am thankful to the fans that made the show number one. The girls made the show great,” he told the Associated Press.

He also addresses the mystery that is his hair: “My hair is combined of my hair and the finest extensions Europe has to offer. I do the show without it on all the time and they won’t film me. They are like, ‘Put your bandanna back on. It is your image.’ It is my signature thing.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
