'Rock of Love' update: The spin-offs
She’s been linked to Pamela Anderson’s ex, Tommy Lee, and Carmen Electra’s former flame, Dave Navarro, but jilted Rock of Love 2 runner-up Daisy De La Hoya has yet to find the man of her dreams. So her search for love continues, to be documented by a new VH1 spin-off reality show, Daisy of Love, scheduled to air in Spring 2009. Casting is underway online at a special site where candidates can upload profiles for consideration and fans can vote for the guys they like best. Just remember, fellas: her cousin is former boxing champ Oscar De La Hoya.
As for Daisy’s almost boyfriend, and Rock of Love original playboy, Bret Michaels? He’s no longer dating ROL2 winner Amber Lake (though they remain good friends, natch) and just wrapped the third incarnation of his dating show, Rock of Love Bus With Bret Michaels, which will premiere on Jan. 4, 2009. The concept: take a new batch of hopefuls cross-country and show the girls what life on the road is really like. The production had its share of problems, including a deadly road accident involving one of the show’s crew members that claimed the life of a 19-year-old student, but according to a series insider who’s seen some of the footage, “it’s going to blow season 1 and 2 away.”
Both shows are produced by 51 Minds Entertainment, the company responsible for bringing Flavor of
Love, Charm School, I Love New York, The Surreal Life, and My
Fair Brady to the world. Rock of Love 2 stands as VH1’s second-highest rated reality series to date.
