Rock of Love Bus
hasn't rolled out of television screens yet, but a recent interview with Bret Michaels
reveals that the show was a success – for him, at least. OK!
Magazine caught up with the musician and asked him how he managed to pick just one from the 20 single ladies he spent so much time with.
“If you want to know the true measure of a person, spend a week on the road with them,” the 45-year-old star revealed. He went on to say that he's still looking for love, since his past flames didn't quite work out.
It wasn't a lasting relationship with his ex-girlfriend Kristi Lynn Gibson, who he has two daughters with. Rock of Love 2
's Ambre Lake
wasn't much of a trooper either, as she admitted she couldn't keep up with the Poison frontman's hectic schedule. Even so, Bret Michaels didn't give up, as he figures third time's truly the charm.
For this year's Rock of Love Bus
, Bret confessed: “I find what I think is my best chance for it. She's someone who can handle being out on the road, but she can still have fun. I think I did good.”
Bret's certainly hoping he'll do better, and he's getting there. “Finding true love on TV is tough. Being long-distance was hard. When I have time off, I jump on a plane to see my kids. Ambre was very cool about the new season starting, and we left the door open between us.”
Meanwhile, Bret Michaels also has his health to worry about. Being a diabetic celebrity, he chose to become a spokesman for the American Diabetics Association. “Most diabetics don't live in a bubble. At some point you're going to have something with sugar, you'll want to get a drink and it's all about working out how to balance it in your diet.”
Despite having to confront the many facets of his life, Bret Michaels keeps his own advice in mind to get through it all. “This is the sickest thing any rock star will say, but the art of balance will let you rock forever.”
