Bret and Ambre break up as VH1 renews Rock of Love for a third season

More than a month after a Canadian TV station revealed that a third season was coming, VH1 has officially announced the renewal of Bret Michaels’ Rock of Love, thanks to his break-up with Ambre Lake.

The new show is called Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels and will debut next year; it will be filmed on a bus as women “[vie] for Bret’s affection while traveling across America following Bret on a month-long tour. The contestants will face new challenges to see if they can handle the rock star life on the road,” according to a VH1 press release.

The network says Bret and Ambre “really tried to make it work and although they still remain close friends, between his tour line-up and her work schedule there’s no time for a relationship.” Ambre said in a statement, “Bret has been very upfront and honest about how difficult maintaining a normal relationship may be for a touring rock star. He’s right, it’s absolutely an insane lifestyle and neither of us had the time to make it work.”

But there is time for a third season! Clearly, that takes less work, effort, and time than maintaining a relationship formed on TV.
