In the past few weeks, we've told you that a few of the ladies who tried to win the heart of Poison frontman, Bret Michaels
, on VH1's Rock of Love
, are jumping straight into an all-new reality contest. Megan, Destiney, Rodeo
and Brandi C.
have all decided to return to the wacky world of reality television, this time not for the prospect of romance, but for the comfort of cold hard cash.
All four Rock of Love
alums join a host of other reality show contestants in the race to win a quarter of a million dollars. While we'd previously reported that I Love Money
, the new VH1 reality series, was scheduled to begin July 13, the network has since jacked up the premiere a week earlier to July 6.
The four Rock of Love
rejects will do battle with former contenders from two other VH1 shows namely, I Love New York
and Flavor of Love
. The ex-New York hopefuls in the race are 12 Pack
, Mr. Boston
, Midget Mac
and The Entertainer
. Finally, Heather, Hoopz
and Pumkin – some of Flavor Flav
's delectable choices on Flavor of Love
– are also in the thick of fight for the $250,000 grand prize.
All 17 contestants will hie off to Mexico and undergo a series of unbelievable challenges designed to weed out which of them has money-lust enough to rise above the competition. I Love Money
kicks off Sunday, July 6 at 9pm eastern.
In other news, perhaps you've heard about infamous Rock of Love
alum Daisy De La Hoya
's curious little entendre when she spoke to TMZ earlier this month. When TMZ caught up with her on one of her nights out on the town, de la Hoya alluded to the fact that she and Bret Michaels had hung out together not too long ago and that talking wasn't what they engaged in.
, winner of Rock of Love
2 AND, supposedly, Michaels' affections, has since posted the following message on her MySpace page to address de la Hoya's almost-revelation:
“I have been notified of the TMZ video posted today [June 3] where Daisy states her opinion about Bret and I being together. I saw this video too and listen, yes, Bret and I are definitely still dating. Daisy has no involvement with Bret and my relationship, therefore there is no validity to her statement.”
