From the producers of "Flavor of Love," this celebreality dating show will have Bret Michaels trying to be the next Flavor Flav by dating a bunch of skanky bimbos and narrowing it down to one. The 10-episode series will premiere sometime in July 2007.

Here are more details about the show from VH1:

With twenty years of continuous multi-platinum success, sold-out tours and a couple of high-profile relationships that never led to the altar, Michaels is ready to wear his heart on his sleeve. The series will focus on the never-before-revealed private side of Michaels. With that said, the casting executives have received an overwhelming response from female fans of all ages. Residing with Michaels in his Los Angeles rock palace, these women will be tested on their devotion to him and their love and understanding of all that is rock-n-roll. To help narrow the field, Michaels will put these women through various challenges. The ladies who win these challenges will join Michaels on some wild and exclusive excursions, while those who can't hang like true backstage VIPs will be escorted out in bona fide rock star fashion.

Whether it's partying on the tour bus, jetting-off to a sun-kissed beach, or hanging with Michaels' celebrity friends, this 10-part series follows these lucky ladies on the rollercoaster ride of their lives. They'll all get a taste of living the rock star life, but in the end, only one lucky lady will win an all access pass to his heart.


Once VH1 reveals the famewhores who signed up for this skank-fest, it should be fun to snark on them. I wonder if Trishelle from "The Real World: Las Vegas" auditioned for this? It sounds like her kind of show.

I don't think this show will be as funny as "Flavor of Love" because Bret Michaels seems to take himself too seriously.

My specialty is eggs Benedict with avocado & tomato in lieu of Canadian bacon) hanging out with my wonderful fiance, or playing with our 7 cats and my large dog.

I know I'll be watching! I was a Poison fan when I was a kid (even had a short-lived crush on Mr. Michaels when I was 11) and I am VH1's Celebreality bitch. They know how to keep a girl hooked on some bad TV!

This show should be entertaining. I'd rather see someone like Bret Michaels doing this show instead of someone like Vince Neil. And since Bret is better-looking and richer than Flavor Flav, I'd imagine the rivalry among the women will be more intense. Apparently, this show was advertising for contestants on places like Craigslist, so it sounds like they wanted to attract more people beyond than the usual casting agencies.

Glad at least this time they got someone desirable. Plus, I enjoy hearing his voice - whether singing or talking. He was a judge on Nashville Star two years ago and while I'm not so sure he should have tried the country music scene, it was nice to see he still looked good.

I am so excited! I can't wait to see this show. I am a huge Poison fan. Perhaps with any luck CC who has also become VH1 celeb-reality regular will drop by and or spin-off into his own show.

This show is such a breath of fresh air. I am so over Flavor Flav and I Love NY.

Although I am kind of curious as what happened between Bret and his long-time girlfriend and the mother of children, Kristi or Kristen?

Oh dear. I know women who would LOVE to do this show for a shot at Bret. I'll probably watch for the trainwreck factor. I wonder if CC will make an appearance to help him pick?

Sign me up too. I was majorly in love with Bret back in the day. I wonder if he still looks as good in a speedo as he did in that poster I had in eighth grade.

How come I never heard about the audition for this??? My life's goal when I was 13 was to be Mrs. Bret Michaels.

I don't see this as being as out and out entertaining as Flavor of Love or I Love NY (because Bret's not as skanky as either of them) but the ladies should provide enough of a skank factor. I'd love to see real women my age with long time love for him duking it out - I'd take on SlinkyKat! But I have a feeling all the contestants will be 22 and all "Poison whaaa...?"

Wasn't Bret a bit of an, um, underachiever in that video with Pamela Anderson? Surprised the gals are still lining up for him.

Iím embarrassed to admit I know this but her name was Kristi Gibson. Iím curious too; I wondered what happened to her when I saw they were making this show. I was a huge Poison fan so I'll be watching.

It kind of makes me wonder if they will give the girls stupid, horribly misspelled nicknames, a la Flavor of Love and I <3 New York. But, this being a rock star, the nicknames would probably look like "LesPaul" (as in the guitar), "Groupeee", and "New Jersey" (hey, they had New York!)

Seriously, though, he's held up well, and didn't go to bloated and re-constructed like the aforementioned Vince Neil. There actually might be decent women....nah, it's a reality show! ;)

Hmm, there are two of these bad boys.

I was on the Flavor of Love train. Now I can't wait to see the rock version.

One thing I don't like so far. The guy is 44 but the contestants have to be 25-35. Why not take ladies up to 45?

It wouldn't be a truly Flav-inspired show if there wasn't a lecherous middle-aged man going after the young'uns.

Okay, I'm a little up in the air over this show. I guess rockers need love, too. I'll watch a couple of episodes.

I think CC Deville would've been more entertaining, IMHO.

CC would have been far more entertaining, but at last check, he was still with Shannon Malone and they had just had a baby boy.

What's wrong with Bret Michaels' face in that picture? I'm glad he's cut, but his face is blurred out?

Maybe all that past living like a rock star is catching up to him and his face?

You know what is bugging me about this show- the name! Couldn't TPTB have come up with a better name than "Rock of Love"? That just sounds... retarded. How about "Poisonous Love", or "Love Poision Number 9", or "Skanky hoes come one come all." Ok, maybe not the last one, but "Rock of Love" was the best they could come up with???

VH1 has started showing promos for this show. It premieres July 15. And it looks like this show will live up to its skank quota: lots of stripper-type looking girls with tacky outfits.

They picked the title "Rock of Love" in an obvious nod to the title "Flavor of Love."

SO...if this is supposed to be a "spin-off" of Flavor of Love, will the girls be given something rock-related as a token of their approval by Bret? A backstage pass, perhaps? (If they actually use that, I called it!) Maybe an "I'm balding, but don't say anything!" do-rag? Maybe a syringe of penicillin...*snark!*

Wow, quite an amount of spandex, bleached hair and jiggling boobs in that promo. I wonder if these women normally dress like that, or think that's the way he wants women to dress.

Can't wait for July!

I think "Unskinny Bopperette" would have been a good name.

How come nobody wants Bobby Dahl? If he still had that long hair I would love to take a chunk out of that! Or Nikki Sixx. And if they get shows they better lower the age limit from 25!

So does the winner get to see what is under the bandana?

I saw the promo looked at my husband and said "I am so there!". He won't admit it, but he is too. Add two more for the VH-1 Celebreality bitch train! Next stop...Hootchietacular Goodness!

I am going to watch this show, because it seems like it might match FOL in skankiness, or at least come pretty damn close. It will be good to show that people of all races can act like complete sluts and trash on TV.

I am too young to remember when hair bands were the shit and had groupies all over them, but I've seen it on other VH1 specials. Was Brett Michaels hot in the day? That picture looks like Kid Rock's head pasted on some male model's body. Sidenote: you know what 80's band guy was insanely hot back in the day? Sebastian Bach. Dude was gorgeous, too bad he just looks sketchy now. Were I maybe 10 years older, I'd be in the right age range; sadly, I spent the late, late 80s in love with Jon Knight from New Kids On the Block.
