Bret Michaels Life As I Know It Episode 8
Band Photo: Poison (?)
The show begins with a brand new look for Bret, the solid black bandana look. It’s as if we are looking at Evil Bret. The whole concept of evil quickly disappears when he gives his daughter (Raine) a guitar for her grades. The guitar has a Playboy bunny on it and the color can only be described as C.C. DeVille pink.
After paying off his daughter to love him (and supposedly for her good grades), Bret is off to L.A. to mingle with the media. Kristi stays behind and takes the girls bandana shopping. This actually happens. While in L.A. Bret shoots the video for his song “Riding against the Wind” which (as has been pointed out in other columns) is not to be confused with Poison’s “Ride the Wind”. Two very different songs, or not, I don’t even know at this point.
Bret returns and we learn that he has bought Kristi a tricked out station wagon type vehicle. It is hard to not see the disappointment in her face when she realizes Bret has bought her a four door vehicle. Coincidently (maybe) Michaels is not feeling well and suspects his blood sugar is low. He eats jelly and then works out while making various management type phone calls. The last call is with his Doctor to discuss his current health as well as his upcoming surgery to fix the hole in his heart that was left by the sweet girls of Rock of Love. Okay that last part was made up, but he is going to have surgery to fix a hole in his heart. The most shocking news is when Bret is told that the recovery time is 6 months. For a guy that can’t go a week without incorporating the words “Ride” and “Wind” in a new song, 6 months seems pretty long.
Next week’s preview show Bret possibly popping the marriage question, or shooting a video for “Riding on top of the Wind”, or maybe neither if this show ends and starts up another Bret Michaels reality show. How many episodes of this can they squeeze out anyway?…
