Rock of Love 2
star Bret Michaels
has been in the public eye for over two decades now, and so no doubt by now has gotten quite comfortable with seeing himself in videos and other on-camera appearances.
Nevertheless, even those who might have no trouble physically exposing themselves on camera sometimes balk at the idea of watching their personal life play out on screen. Tila Tequila
has spent much of her career scantily clad in front of a camera, but when it came to watching herself bare her emotions (or, as many suspect, “emotions”) on A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila
, she said she found the act of watching it very difficult.
So what does Bret think about watching Rock of Love 2
As you might imagine, it kinda turns him on.
He recently told MTV Candada, "I was excited to see it because I had no idea what the girls were doing while I was around. I lived it, but I didn't know what the girls were saying about me or what they were doing or fighting about while I wasn't there. I was so curious, I was a fly on the wall for my own show and that's why I watch it. I don't get to edit the show so I see them when everyone else sees them on Sunday night."
And Bret's clearly not the only one who can't get enough of watching Rock of Love 2
. The premiere of the show was watched by 3.7 million people, making it one of the 10 most-watched broadcasts in VH1 history. Subsequent episodes haven't been quite the ratings dominator, but with the repeated airings of the show, folks might be waiting for a second run to catch up with new episodes.
The show just took an interesting turn by eliminating Angelique
, who thus far had been featured pretty heavily in the edited show. Kristy Joe
is looking to be the gal bringing the drama next week, but who will step up next in the edit to be a major character remains to be seen.
