Canadian network announces Rock of Love 3

A Canadian TV network has announced the third season of Bret Michael’s VH1 reality show search for love, even though Bret and season two winner Ambre are apparently still together, and VH1 hasn’t yet announced a third season. Rock of Love 3 is listed as part of Citytv’s 2008-2009 season, and is framed as yet another search for a partner; the network rebroadcasts US shows, and is currently showing season two of Bret Michael’s show.

Here’s what Citytv’s press release says:

“Rock of Love III”

Bret Michaels is back and still looking for love! The rock star’s third quest for a soul mate follows a group of beautiful women facing a number challenges and eliminations. Whether it’s partying on the tour bus, jetting-off to a sun-kissed beach, or hanging out with his celebrity friends, the series follows this new batch of ladies on the rollercoaster ride of their lives. They’ll all get a taste of living the rock star life, but in the end, only one lucky lady will win an all access pass to his heart.

If such a show is happening, that would seem to confirm persistent rumors that Bret and Ambre have broken up, but as recently as last Tuesday, Ambre wrote on her MySpace blog that “Bret and I are definitely still dating.”

And last month, Bret said he wouldn’t rule out a third season, and Ambre wrote that “Bret and I talked about this and as far as we know there will not be a Rock of Love 3 and if there is, it could possibly be with another Rocker. He is looking to do another show called ‘Bret Michaels Big Rock Road Show’.”
