Bret Michaels, famed Poison rocker and star of the VH1 show “Rock Of Love”, just can’t make his engagement stick. He’s given a ring (the same ring, actually) to his longtime girlfriend–Kristi Gibson–twice now, and both times they’ve ended up calling it off.
Gibson, who is the mother of Michaels’ two children, called the ring a “friendship ring with benefits” after Michaels presented it to her two years ago during the finale of his other VH1 show, “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It”. Apparently, she was trying to send a message he wasn’t ready to receive.
“Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters,” a statement released by Michaels’ rep said.
Poor Bret can’t seem to find the right one. After an exhaustive search for love on his VH1 reality series, he came close with a girl named Jes, but that fell through when everyone realized he had feelings for party girl Heather. But given what he had to work with, it’s amazing he even found those two. Here are some of the best clips from the first episode of the show. Caution: NSFW language.
