Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It
Bret Michaels life is one heck of a wild ride. As the lead singer of poison he obtained Rock God status and a party king reputation that needs constant maintenance. As the front man for the Bret Michaels Band, Bret still tours voraciously playing concerts night after night and is on the road months out of the year. As a television star Bret, has won the hearts of fans both young and old, on his highly successful TV show Rock of Love and on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.
What most people don’t know is that when Bret isn’t touring, shooting, partying, rocking, or doing interviews and press, he’s just a normal father of two… well, as normal as a rock star dad can be. You see, after the lights have dimmed on stage and the music stops Bret rolls off the tour bus right into the loving arms of his daughters Rain and Jorja, who affectionately refer to him as “Poppa Rock”!
Bret’s home base is a sprawling complex in the Arizona hills where his daughters and their mother, Kristi Gibson, reside. When Bret’s not out playing Rock Star he’s home playing Princess and Dragons with Jorja. When he’s not on TV he’s home making sure Rain gets to school on time. But raising two little girls and being a rock icon don’t always go hand in hand. Now Vh1 and 51 Minds take a peek at what keeps Bret going….is it the hoards of thong throwing fans, the glitz and glamour of super stardom…or is it the unconditional love from a little place he calls home. Watch as Bret juggles life on the road, splitting his time between LA and Arizona, raising two kids, managing his relationship with Kristi and being generally awesome. I tell you, it’s enough to give a guy a heart attack… or maybe a brain hemorrhage. But if anyone can fight off the darkness and get back on his feet it’s Bret Michaels and with the love of his girls, general stubbornness, and an undeniable need to be kick ass, Bret will do just that.
Watch as Bret finds the balance between being a Rock and Roll Superstar and a Poppa who Rocks.
