Bret Michaels Rushed to Hospital with Brain Hemorrhage

Bret Michaels's health has taken a turn for the worse, PEOPLE has learned: After an excruciating headache late Thursday night, the star was rushed to an undisclosed hospital where doctors discovered he suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem), according to a source close to the situation.

Michaels, 47, is currently in critical condition. "After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation," the source says.

Reps confirm this report is accurate, and tell PEOPLE, "We will have no additional information until further testing is done."

The rocker's latest hospital visit follows his emergency appendectomy in San Antonio, Texas, on April 12. There is no word yet whether this new development is related to the rocker's recent appendectomy or to his diabetes.

After his appendectomy, Michaels remained in the hospital under his doctors' care – then transferred to a rehab facility specializing in diabetic patients.

As he was recovering, Michaels – who was still in the running to win this season of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice – seemed to be in good spirits and updated fans on his progress.

"They told me that if I had gone on stage like I wanted to, [my appendix] likely would have ruptured and I could have died," he wrote in a note to his fans. "There is just no way around the fact that getting your appendix out HURTS. I have a pretty good threshold for pain, but this one hurts."


It just makes me wonder
Why so many lose, so few win...

LAME. Just lame. Wasn't thrilled with the reunion episode.

1. Regarding the whole Megan/Sharon fiasco....was Megan drunk? Or high? She just kept babbling on and on about stupid bullshit and going "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" like she was some sorority chick on spring break, and she kept interrupting Rodeo and was being rude and obnoxious. Anyway, Megan totally had it coming.

2. Heather and her "prom night" attire. That's all I'm going to say about that.

3. I don't know if I missed it, but I really would've liked for Sharon to have had Brandi C. down, and I would've liked to have heard Sharon ask Brandi C. for her thoughts about why she got expelled and if she held Lacey responsible for any of that.

4. Speaking of Lacey....maybe it's just me, but I think she was the one who started the "Heather thinks she's an A-list celebrity" thing by flat-out calling her such. Bah, whatever. This show's over, and like I said, I was more pleased with "Flavor of Love: Charm School."



And guess what premiered an hour after this finale?



Bret: "Hmm, I think I gotta take my show on the road!"

Oh my frickin' GAWD, I watched "Rock of Love Bus." I'm going to get back to recapping this stuff, because this season....I was thoroughly amused. The shanks vying for Bret's heart this time around are even trashier than the first couple of batches.

I never got around to the recaps for the previous two episodes of "Charm School," and I don't think I'll do them either. I just haven't had the energy or time to do so. But some thoughts about the previous two episodes.

The episode when Jessica and Kristy Jo got eliminated....Read more... )

The next episode...WTF was Heather's damage, man?! Read more... )

The final episode....I can see why Sharon brought Brandi C., Heather and Megan back. Read more... )

Overall....I liked the "Flavor of Love Charm School" much better in the end.

Last week on "Rock of Love: Charm School," the Duchess of Birmingham, Alabama, Paige J.R. Ewing-ton visited, and the girls' etiquette skills were put to the test. Inna didn't cover up her lovely lady lumps because Brandi C. and Lacey didn't want to be a team with her, Brandi M. kept screwing up the Duchess' name, Jessica made lousy jokes, (spotted) dick was eaten, Brandi M. convinced Jessica to put herself up on the chopping block "to develop some backbone," and in the end Inna was eliminated....even though if Brandi M. had been up there like she originally was supposed to, she would've definitely went packing.

Okay, we're six episodes in, who's been eliminated so far? Raven (who eliminated herself), Courtney, Angelique, Rodeo, Megan, and Inna. Just keeping track, folks.

And before I even REALLY get into the commentary this week...a little off-topic. Riki Rachtman's "RikiCam" this week wasn't even about Charm School, but I definitely suggest you check it out. Especially if the potential bail-out of the automobile industry is on your mind...Riki has something he wants to get off his chest:



Keep that in mind. One in nine Americans.

Oh-kay, back to "Charm School." Read more... )I can't wait for the reunion episode.

And in the previews for next week....shit goes down, and Brandi C. pulls a Pumkin and SPITS on someone! Bret want to know..."Whassa goin' on?!"



......Okay, this was a hard one to snark on this week, because it was nothing but "Lacey sucks" left and right, which is really getting boring. I'm really waiting for next week.
hollybrooke: (Evil Homer animated!)
Last week on "Rock of Love: Charm School"...the girls recruited their own bands for a "Battle of the Bands;" hot guys took their shirts off, there was drama over Maura, her brother, and something Brandi M. DIDN'T say about it; CAMELTOE!; Megan was a a catty bitch and got physical with Brandi M.; and Sharon just got tired of Megan's shit and eliminated her, but that's okay, because Megan really wants to be a dentist. Oh wait, Brandi C. threatened to leave as well because Megan was axed, and she went batshit crazy in the process. But she's still in the competition. Because the nutso pink-blonde is good for ratings, now that the sociopathic Megan is gone.

At the beginning of this episode, we get mini-recaps from three girls who may end up on the chopping block tonight. Inna, who has been down for elimination a couple of times already, and knows she has no more room to mess things up. Brandi M., who has been down for elimination a few times herself as well, but manages to get out of it each time by pushing out a few tears. And Brandi C., who cries like a bratty little girl each and every episode. ESPECIALLY last week.

What this episode should be called?:

Last week on "Rock of Love: Charm School," the judges picked on how the girls dressed, there was drama over a frickin' stolen bracelet, there was a fashion show, Heather didn't look as skankalicious as she normally does, Megan lied to Sharon again, Sharon tore Lacey AND Megan new assholes, and Rodeo let her emotions get the better of her and got eliminated for doing so. (Yeah, I know, I thought it was a stupid reason to eliminate her, as well.)

Things to keep in mind this episode:
A--Megan can't say anything nice about anyone. EVER.
B--Lacey's a musician!
C--Heather has style with a capital S!

This episode starts with Heather and Lacey actually being...civil to each other over breakfast! (I know, right?!) But it's a very off-handed conversation that we hear the tail end of. I can't make out what Heather says, but Lacey says, "I didn't call you 'slutty.' I never call girls 'slutty,' because that's just the pot calling the kettle black." They giggle over it, and I'm giggling too, because it's cool to see Lacey actually getting along with someone like Heather, who everyone hates for no real reason other than she's "trashy." In her interview, Lacey comments that she realizes it's time for her to buckle down and to start taking this seriously. "I'm the lead singer of a rock band (Gawd, Lacey, how many times do you have to mention this?! Shameless self promotion, much?), Sharon can make anyone's career, $100,000 is at stake...it's time to get serious." Read more... )

Why do they keep calling Heather a "lost cause"? Read more... )

Zombies are already considered dead, and they aren't exactly operating under their own will anymore. They cease to be the personalities they once were as functioning humans, and now they're just entities searching for brains. So in that respect, you can argue that they aren't exactly suffering.

However....you can also argue whether the dead person's soul went to heaven after they were attacked and killed by the zombie. This could possibly account for whether they are "resting in peace" or not. In my opinion, I feel if I were killed and reanimated at the hands (teeth?) of a zombie, I sure as hell wouldn't be resting in peace.

Speaking of zombies, a little shameless plug for Shawn:

But onto another topic: "Charm School" again. And I'm putting this behind a cut because it involves some spoilers, but it's a thought that I just have to throw out there. If you want to be spoiled, go ahead and read it. Read more... )

Last week on "Rock of Love Girls: Charm School," Sgt. Jones came back and made the girls toss sandbags on a beach, Brandi C. cried and was later carried on a sled (with Megan) by the other girls, Brandi M. vandalized Brandi C.'s and Megan's pictures as revenge, the girls assembled stages, Lacey was a showoff, Dallas couldn't understand a damn word Angelique was saying, Brandi C. cried again at elimination (even though she wasn't up for elimination....WHY, I have no idea), and Angelique was sent back to Paris so she could bee a happee, seckzy streeper.

Picking up where we left off, Lacey, Brandi C. and Megan are lamenting Angelique's expulsion. Lacey claims she really liked Angelique (because she wasn't really a threat to her and she thinks, "HA, one more bitch out of my hair!") and Brandi C. says that Angelique wasn't even the weakest link. Brandi C. is just damn lucky that her team won the challenge the other day or else she definitely would've been up on the chopping block. However, I hold on to my theory that the REAL reason Angelique was eliminated was because the average TV viewer hates reading subtitles, and if Angelique were kept on a good chunk of this season, she would've scared off half of the audience weeth her craaaaazy French accent.

Meanwhile, the Terrible Three are still plotting on how to get even with that "nasty, trailer trash" Brandi M. They know Brandi M. won't be on her best behavior forever (ha ha, good luck! This IS "Charm School," and if Brandi M. is looking to seriously turn herself around, she just might surprise you), and Lacey's all, "Well, we've already got under her skin, and that seed has been planted."

I think the fact that Rodeo is older than the rest of the group and has a kid herself gives her a bit of an advantage. The majority of the girls in the house are on that adolescent-level, and if she has to treat them like a kid and manhandle them, she isn't above that. Basically, Rodeo doesn't put up with childish crap like stealing and cheating and lying.

Who else here thinks Rodeo doesn't really need Charm School?

Last week on "Rock of Love: Charm School," we got to see the skanks who want to make themselves over into...non-skanky types. We got reacquainted with Sharon Osbourne, and we met the deans. Megan wanted to be a trophy wife, Brandi M. burped and farted, Lacey started shit with Dallas and got an apple thrown at her head in the process, Raven felt she was above this shit and eliminated herself, and Courtney got eliminated because she's a total lush.

HERE ARE THE FEATURED WORDS OF THIS EPISODE: "Pink" and "fatties."

The next morning, Lacey and Dallas are up bright and early, primping in front of their vanity mirrors. Lacey's all, "My ear is still ringing from Dallas throwing that apple at me, WTF?" Cut to Angelique, ze French streeper, fixing her terr-ee-ble extensions (and you thought Britney Spears' extensions were bad!) and putting her makeup on her face. And hoo boy, does Angelique have some duck lips! They're like putting both Mary-Kate and Ashley's duck lips together! Whatevair, Angelique ees all about ze seckz.

Edit: I've already heard spoilers about who wins! See if you can figure it out!

The show opens with a bus transporting fourteen of the....lovely ladies.....(I'm having trouble keeping a straight face while typing this!)....to the facilities that will serve as Charm School. Sharon Osbourne, in a voice-over, explains that "millions of people watched their disgraceful behaviour" (and because this is Sharon Osbourne, after all, when I quote her, I'm going to spell it the way the British would spell it) and "in spite of what they might think, these girls desperately need to change their ways." Yeah, sure, Sharon. They're just on the show for more screen time and a chance to earn/win money. These bitches don't want to change. Yet she aims to change them from old tart groupies into "women of importance." Good luck, Sharon. You've got a lot of work ahead of you.



All of the skanks look just as skankalicious as they did when "Rock of Love" ended! ESPECIALLY Heather!

ROCK OF LOVE, BITCHES!!

We can officially announce that Bret and Ambre are over! And what’s more, there’s a new installment of "Rock of Love" on the way! This time, Bret’s taking his show on the road…literally! Per the press release of "Rock of Love Bus" with Bret Michaels (coming in early 2009):

Rock star Bret Michaels tried twice to find love by filling a mansion with gorgeous women and having them compete for his heart. But after the final pass was handed out and the cameras stopped rolling, Bret’s picks didn’t work out. He and season two winner, Ambre Lake, 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.

“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,” stated Lake.

Now Bret is taking another stab at finding his perfect match in the ultimate rock and roller’s test…life on the road! Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels is set to premiere in early 2009.

“Seasons one and two of Rock of Love shattered ratings records and VH1 is so happy to have Bret back for another outrageous season. This time we’ll reveal Bret in his most comfortable setting- the infamous rock star tour bus.” said Jeff Olde, VH1’s Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production.

“We are excited to hit the road for another season of Rock of Love,” commented Executive Producers Mark Cronin & Cris Abrego, “Nobody knows their way around a tour bus like Bret Michaels, and we are confident that the audience will enjoy the ride.”

How will Bret find a woman to ‘rock his world’ when his world is always moving? VH1 is loading up a tour bus filled with beautiful babes and taking them on tour across the country. Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels takes contestants out of the mansion and on the road in true rock star style. This season will feature all-new ladies vying 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.

This time as the bus pulls into each new city, the girls will engage in challenges specifically revolving around Bret’s life on the road. Whether it’s greeting aggressive groupies with a smile, enduring grueling schedules, dodging the advances of the warm-up band or even stepping in last-minute to fill in for delinquent roadies – these girls will be put to the test. This season, as the Rock of Love Bus heads into America’s heartland, the show will be taking the viewer to a whole new level with crazy, fun, over-the-top challenges- imagine Truck Stop Olympics or a dance contest on top of the St. Louis Arch or even a BBQ cook-off beneath the World’s Largest Thermometer. And also, back by popular demand…Mud Bowl 3. Americana at it’s finest!

Last week on "Rock of Love," there was a clipshow that I didn't bother watching, but I hear Lacey got naked and streaked around the house with "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" plastered on her body. Two weeks ago, Bret invited the parents to visit, Heather rode a mechanical bull, Lacey's dad pissed everyone off, the Lacey/Heather alliance ended after Lacey started spreading lies about Heather, and Lacey's tour FINALLY ended.

So now, it's down to Heather and Jes. Bret springs the news on them: "Pack your bags, because we're going to Cabo San Lucas!" AWESOME! (Buuuut....didn't Flava Flav take his finalists to Mexico as well? This is where I kind of started yawning because I've seen this before on "Flavor of Love." This shit is nothing new.)Read more... )

Then out of Heather's mouth comes those three small words. "I love you." Ohhhhh boy. Bret doesn't know what to say. (And didn't this happen to Flava Flav when New York was professing her love for him BOTH times? I think it's a rule on these dating shows that when you say the "L" word, it doesn't end up good in the end.) Read more... )

(Commercial break. I switch to XM Radio's 80's station. Guess what's playing? "Talk Dirty To Me" by Poison. Coincidence?)

It's kind of like the scene in Pulp Fiction when Vince has to give Mia the adrenaline shot in her heart, but on a more tender level. Read more... )one last test from Bret. He asks both Heather and Jes if they'd both consider being his girlfriend.

....Since when did Bret Michaels decide he's Hugh Hefner?! What if they both say "yes"? Will Vh1 get a "Groupies Next Door" TV show with Heather, Jes and Kristi (his babies' momma)? Oh yeah, that shit I was saying about threesomes and open relationships are paying off now.

What if they both say "no"? No one wins? Lacey's words two weeks ago about "I hope Bret chooses neither of them so he stays single!" ring true? That'd be hilarious. Now THAT'D be a twist ending!

Read more... )

....and God, I hate when men do this, because...I remember when Zero pulled this shit with me, told me the "You're awesome, smart, beautiful and I really love spending time with you...but I'd kick myself in the ass if I didn't give it another shot with Kristen" shit. I really, REALLY hate it when men do that. It makes you feel like they're just setting you up to be figuratively punched in the stomach or tearing your heart out of your chest. Don't fucking sugarcoat it by flattering me before you dump me. Read more... )

WHAT. A. FUCKING. LIAR. Read more... )

All in all....I wasn't that thrilled. And it made me feel disgusted in Bret. Ugh. How sad is that?Read more... )

Dear Holly,
Here is your AstroSlam
for Monday, October 1:

You're feeling unusually decadent today. Make it your mission to find someone to climb into bed with tonight. If that doesn't work out pick up a dozen double glazed donuts on the way home.


Well, friends, it's October. Halloween's in less than a month. (BTW, happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] sweetvirago. How was JemCon?!) It's time for me to revamp the LJ in Halloween-ish colors. Or Misfit colors, I dunno.

I haven't written a "Rock of Love" season finale recap yet. I got home about 20 minutes into it and I need to watch the repeat tomorrow to write a full recap. My thoughts? Kind of anticlimatic (especially considering I knew who was going to win)...I feel he used his diabetes as a ploy to see who wold truly stick it out with him, and it was hard because I liked both Heather and Jes. It was easy with "Flavor of Love" because New York was just obnoxious and it was easy to hate her; this is why Bret should've just rode it out with Lacey towards the end. Lacey made for good TV.

(Oh yeah. Very obvious "Jem" shout-out there. Rio rocks my socks.)

Last week on "Rock o' Love": Brandi and Lacey got shitfaced in Vegas, Brandi drunkenly confessed her love for Bret and took it back the next morning, Lacey made Brandi look bad, Heather stuffed her face with seafood, Jes tended to the drunk girls, Lacey and Bret had sex, and Brandi's tour ended.

THIS week...Okay, I just got done watching this episode, and I'm surprised at just who got eliminated this week. But I'm not saying just who's "tour ended here" this week. You're reading this, and you want details, and believe me...shit went DOWN this week!

So after the incident in Vegas last week...remember when Brandi told Heather to watch her back because not only was Lacey trying to ruin Brandi's chances with Bret, she'd ruin Heather's chances as well? What Lacey did last week during the tandem date she and Heather had with Bret was pretty low, in my opinion. Read more... )

Today, Bret has flown in Heather, Jes and Lacey's parents. The point of inviting the parents is to "dig up dirt" that maybe neither Heather nor Jes nor Lacey has disclosed of themselves as of yet. Read more... )

Now, I guess Bret has met Lacey's father before! Bret has a pretty good memory, and he remembers meeting Lacey's dad about seven years ago on a plane flight, having a good conversation with him, and her dad whipped out a picture of his precious little girl to which Bret remarked, "She's gorgeous! Can I date her?" I guess maybe Bret and Lacey were meant to be...? (Oh, hell no.) Lacey's dad is NOT amused. Lacey's all, "Oh, he just feels that no one's good enough for his little girl." Yeah, Otis (Lacey's dad) is to "Rock of Love" as Sister Patterson was to "Flavor of Love." But not so much bitchy, just really pompous.

Read more... )

Is this turning into a smear campaign against the stripper? Feels like it. Read more... )

Someone asks, "Well, what exactly does Lacey do?" Otis replies, "Lacey lives off of her investments and plays the stock market."



Funny. Lacey's been touting herself as a starving musician/artist type the whole time on the show.

...Okay, stories about Lacey are already coming out on the Internet. From what I've heard, her "music career" is financed by her daddy. (Hey, [livejournal.com profile] sweetvirago, who does THAT sound like?!) Also, she fronts a band called Nocturne, very nu-metal/goth. In her pursuit of a music career, Lacey has been turned down by a good number of music labels that have all said she lacks any real musical/vocal talent and has no style. A lot of her schtick consists of screeching and crawling around on stage like she's a crazy demon-woman. So her act on "Rock of Love" is all just promotion for her band. She is not there for Bret at all. She's there for Lacey.

SEASON FINALE IN DOS SEMANAS!!!!
hollybrooke: (Bret Michaels!)
Last week on "Rock of Love"...the superfans interrogated the girls, Brandi's hair burned, Lacey and Jes hated each other, Heather got a tattoo, and Sam got eliminated.

This week.......since VH1 has been helping MTV promote the VMAs "Live From Las Vegas!" this week, it seems fitting that this week's "Rock of Love" episode is taking place in....you guessed it. Las Vegas!

Seriously, I'm thinking this was just coincidence, the timing of this episode and the VMAs in Vegas. But the main reason Bret wants to take the girls to Vegas is to really give them a taste of the rock 'n roll lifestyle. Read more... )

Well...now that Dallas and Sam (Lacey's two previous targets) have been eliminted, Lacey's target du jour is now Brandi. She thinks Brandi is too immature and uncouth for Bret, and is also nothing but a groupie, so she needs to "be thrown under the bus."

Meanwhile, Brandi is telling Jes that her plan tonight is to get Heather "so trashed" tonight. (I absolutely love her bustier top she's wearing!)

Last week, there was mayhem on a CD cover photoshoot. Brandi dressed up as a guy. Mia tried to step up her game. Lacey got hated on some more. Lacey finally won a challenge! And Mia got eliminated.

Now there are five girls left. It's getting down to the nitty-gritty, and they're all aware of it.

At this point on "Flavor of Love," Flav would bring in his large family/all his kids to grill whoever was left in the competition...because Flavor Flav is an upstanding family man, boyyeeee. Ha, no really. Flav is somewhat involved in all of his kids' lives and really wanted their input. And you had to dig that about Flavor Flav. You'd think Bret Michaels would see how his remaining five would fare around his two little girls or how they'd put up with Kristi (their mom).

NO! This is where Bret loses points with me. Read more... )

Bret cares more about what his "SuperFans" think as opposed to his family. So today, he's called in three Poison groupies superfans to grill the remaining five. The girls don't know what to expect. Read more... )

Enter the SuperFans: Amy, Ky and Allison. They're hot! Why didn't they audition?! Probably because they're recognized GROUPIES! Read more... )

That was harsh, yo. Brandi doesn't deserve this shit. The superfans are coming off like Regina George and the Plastics in Mean Girls. She's under pressure and she's smoking. Literally. The light's so bright and hot, it's overheating her bobby pins and singeing her hair! It's like she's Richard Pryor!

You can call shit "fecal matter," but it doesn't matter because it still comes out of someone's ass...and it stinks.

This is why you have to love Jes. She's very encouraging and doesn't put up with crap and won't stand to see someone get hurt.

Read more... )

...See, on "Flavor of Love," at least New York never admitted to underhanded, deceptive shit like this. If you didn't like New York (like I didn't), tough! She wasn't going to try to make you like her, either. New York kisses no one's ass. In that respect....I like New York. A little. New York OWNS Lacey Connor. New York is in tha motha-fuckin' house!! BITCHES!

...'Kay, back to "Rock of Love."

.....Where the hell is good ol' Rodeo when you need her or want her around?! She was waaaaay more convincing with her "I had cancer! I had blood transfusions! I have a kid! I collect swords!" because you could believe it from her. Amy, Ky and Allison still don't buy it from Lacey. Neither do Jes or Brandi. (Or me.)

Read more... )

Elimination time. No goofy getup from Bret tonight. Black jacket, black bandana, blue jeans. Bret must be feeling kind of somber. He ain't lookin' forward to this.

Read more... )

Okay. Amy, Ky and Allison flat-out didn't like Lacey. However, Sam's been talking about bolting. Or staying. She doesn't know. She's had her heart put through the wringer. And Bret likes her too much to keep putting her through it.

Read more... )

Bret Michaels is an assclown who deserves to have his balls chopped off in his sleep by Lacey at this point. It's his funeral. His loss. He should've kept Sam around.

hollybrooke: (Bret Michaels!)
(Okay, I should be in downtown Chicago to finish my extra work for Rory's First Kiss, but more on that in my next post. All you need to know is that I did indeed work yesterday.)

Last week, Lacey didn't win the challenge (surprise, surprise), targeted Sam, and the Polish spy got eliminated. Everyone hates Lacey, blah blah blah. After watching the sneak peek last week, I think it's obvious that this week's episode is going to be all about how much EVERYONE HATES LACEY and just wants her the fuck out! However, I get the feeling that despite the Lacey-hatred and despite all the other girls calling her out on Bret, she won't be eliminated, and someone who probably doesn't deserve to be eliminated will get the boot. We'll see.

Read more... )

Sam says this should be a no-brainer since she's done some modeling stuff for phtographer friends of hers. If it's tattoo modeling, maybe I can believe it. I'm not saying that Sam's not attractive, but there are some people that you hear do modelling that you wouldn't believe...well, model. (I was like that when I heard Kevin did some male-modelling. He just didn't seem like that type, but there are things about people that you wouldn't expect.)

Read more... )

This is reminding me of when Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt posed as the angel vs. devil for the Captain Morgan's ad for Playboy. Lacey is the devil (shock, shock) and Sam's the angel...although you'd barely notice it because Sam's pretty much on the bottom and under a sheet, and all the album cover is Lacey trying to devour Sam. Subliminal messaging, anyone?

Read more... )It's a catch-22: be the hot skank on the cover, or be the one who has a say-so in how it's shot. You can't have your cake and eat it, too. And Lacey knows Jes is a knock-out beauty with her pink hair and pretty eyes (PIZZAZZ HATES JEM!!!), so she'd rather be the skank on the cover.

Read more... )

At this point, Brandi feels that Lacey really isn't there for Bret like she claims, and if she just sees this as a "game," and if Bret know Lacey viewed this as a "game," he'd need to think twice about her. She's getting under the other girls' skins to scare them off. (Brandi is right; this IS all a "game" to Lacey. Listen to how she talks about "offing these other bitches" in her confessionals.) Read more... )

Then SAM confronts Lacey! Little meek "emotional wreck" Sam! Read more... )

Bret comes to judge the album covers.
Read more... )

Sometimes you just don't need a theme for an album cover; sometimes all you need is hot chicks and a car. And that will be MY debut album cover--I will be slutted up, humping a sparkly purple Dodge Viper. *ha ha*

Read more... )

Poison has had problems with album covers before. The cover of Open Up And Say Ahhhhh! was modified so the demon woman's tounge wasn't showing. Plus, the cover of Flesh and Blood originally had blood dripping from the tattoo on the front, so alternate covers were made with no blood dripping. So I can understand Bret's concern over how "sexy" and "demonic" this album's cover was...even if it was hot. "Sexy" still triumphs over the possibility of not selling any albums at all.

In the end...Sam, Jes and Lacey win this challenge. Read more... )

ALL of the girls are pissed this episode. Read more... )

...Wow, whaddya know? Two Rachael Ray referrences in one "Rock of Love" recap. Who saw that coming? BRET IS YUM-O!!! Now let's make a Bret "sammie." (Ha ha, I couldn't help myself. Third time's a charm.) Read more... )

At dinner...while they're all eating...of course, Lacey has to start spouting off more of her PETA-propoganda. UGH. NOT WHILE WE'RE EATING, BITCH! Read more... )

Okay...Sam nearly left because of Lacey. And now Brandi nearly left because of Lacey. Bret...quit thinking with yer dick, and start thinking with your cranium. You feel like Lacey might kill you in your sleep? THEN GET RID OF THE BITCH!! This is Bret-logic, ladies and gents!

Elimination time. Read more... )
Then it's down to Lacey and Mia. You can practically hear Jes, Heather, Sam and Brandi going, "GET RID OF LACEY!" in their heads. Read more... )
hollybrooke: (Bret Michaels!)
Now it's getting down to the nitty gritty, and it's time for all of the girls to step up their game. One morning, Big John walks in on slumbering babes and wakes them up, proclaiming, "This is rock 'n roll, it ain't rock 'n sleep. Get up!" (Asshole. But I'm laughing anyways.) Read more... )

The girls are seriously going on the road?! SERIOUSLY?! (Shit, with all of the "seriouslys" I've written, this is turning into a damn "Grey's Anatomy" episode.) No, of course not. It's a test! Read more... )

But guess what? SAM WINS. LACEY HAS LOST YET ANOTHER COMPETITION!!Read more... )

Later on....like I said...go Bret, it's yo' birthday! We gonna party like it's your birthday! We gonna sip Bacardi like it's your birthday!...And you get the point. The girls set up some decorations and cook some pathetic-looking birthday cake for Bret. (Can he even EAT it? He IS diabetic, after all. And where the hell is the footage of showing these girls how to give insulin injections to oranges like I heard they actually made them do? Where's Big John with Bret's insulin shot?)Read more... )

At this point, Bret knows something's up with Sam, so he goes to see what's eating her. Read more... )

Back at the pad, Bret and Brandi are running late because of the game, so he sends a note home to the rest of the girls. He wants them to comprise a list of reasons why they shouldn't be there. This is just setting them up for confrontations and more drama. Way to go, Bret.Read more... )

NO one likes Lacey at this point and they all want her gone. She's the New York to Bret's Flav. Read more... )
hollybrooke: (Default)
This was an interesting week. During "Flavor of Love," Flav exhibited what I like to refer to as "Flav-logic," which is when he would make a questionable decision at elimination time. (For example, when Flav eliminated Goldie after Goldie made it clear she just wanted to be friends with Flav and he was clearly looking for action. Then at the end of "Flavor of Love 2," New York was going on and on about how they'd be together forever, and Flav told her "he was just looking for someone he could kick it with casually.") This week, the "Rock of Love" equivalent is starting to shine through.

I call it "Bret-logic." Or "thinking with your dick." Whichever. Read more... )

The girls all notice that Bret has laid out some girly-looking football uniforms for them. They change, and they are driven to a random muddy football field. It's time for Bret's First Annual Mud Bowl! I half expect to hear the "Monday Night Football" theme, but no. They've cued up "I Want Action" by Poison (of course).Read more... )



Bitch, if you're such a "badass," you'd suck it up and keep playing anyways. Nyah-nyah-nyah. My Lacey-hate increases with each episode.

Read more... )

Meanwhile, Jes is getting ready for her date. She's nervous. She's still on the fence about Bret, especially after her last serious relationship. Read more... )

Might I mention that I just don't care for Jes' sleeker, calmed-down "date hair"? I'm sorry, but it looks better when it's big and spikey-ish. Hell, when Jem's off-duty, at least Jerrica Benton's blunt-cut looks stylish.

While Jes is primping, Heather overhears Erin on the phone. Drama-time! Read more... )

Big John escorts Jes to her date with Bret. There's a table set up for two before a stage. Jes sits, and Bret comes out, ready to perform. He realizes that he hasn't gotten a chance to get to know Jes. He also hasn't had one-on-one time with Bitch-n-Whiney...err, Lacey or Mia yet. So what makes Jes so special? Who does she think she is, anyway?...



Yeah. Sorry. Couldn't help it. The lead-up was too tempting.

You know what? I'm going to start calling Lacey "Pizzazz" from now on. The parallels are too hard to miss. That, and I think it'll be down to her and pink-haired Jes in the end.

But I digress. Back to Jem and Riot--oops, Jes and Bret.

Read more... )

Let's face it...let's be brutally honest. Bret knows he's no spring chicken, and it's not 1988 anymore. He's....(oh God, I hate to say it)...going through a...mid-life crisis. At least that's what I'm gathering what it looks like. He's in his mid-forties, he's living a comfortable lifestyle and reaping the fruits of his labor, he has two daughters...and he's lonely! (Despite all of the groupies,) Bret Michaels is lonely, and he just wants someone who will love him for who he is--aging hipster/rockstar with receding hairline, insulin shots, what he looks like first thing in the morning, and all. Read more... )

I laughed thinking, "This is what those 'Rock of Love' girls have to look forward to!" And I realized that this is the probably the hell that is Bret's life. He just wants someone who will love him despite all of his baggage.

And really...don't we all relate?

God, I wish they end up doing a "Rock of Love 2."

Anyhoo.......Bret takes Maggie, M.I.A. (*hee hee* Get it?!) and Brandi for their date. Bret's pissed, and he needs to...I don't know, shoot something. Guess what, girls?! We're going to a GUN RANGE! Perfect date material!

It turns out that Magdalena is an eagle-eye. Um...how do we know she's not a Polish spy? I half expect her to say in that deep voice of hers, "Hello, Mr. Bond." Magdalena scares me.

Read more... )

"I, Bret Michaels, will not be played." HA. Then why'd you agree to do this show?Read more... )

Elimination time. NOW Bret is going to start eliminating one-by-one to stretch the show and get ratings. It comes down to Erin and Heather, and....Read more... )

More next week!
