  • Rock of Love makes a mockery of what real relationships between men and women should be and is, in my opinion, a very silly show

      It’s hard to believe that a gaggle of beautiful women are so desperate to attract the attentions of an aging rock-and-roller that they would put themselves through all types of humiliation. Apparently, though, it is true, as evidenced by VH-1’s reality show “Rock of Love.” In each episode, various women compete to be able to continue another week, as they battle for the affections of Bret Michaels, the 40-ish former lead singer of the band Poison.

      Each week they are given tasks, either individually or in teams, and the one Michaels deems as most

      worthy gets to spend some time doing some serious lip-locking, etc., with him. These ladies get catty, profane and downright nasty with each other as they connive to position themselves to make it to the end of the season to be the ultimate victor. Every episode, one -or in some cases two- of them gets bounced and sent on her way.

      I am certain that the reasons for these women being on “Rock of Love” have little to do with really finding true love, but more with getting seen on television and possibly boosting their own ...

      • careers. Michaels is a wealthy man, not badly put together for a guy of his years, who constantly has potential access to many eager and readily-available women wherever he goes. He certainly does not need a reality show to help him find romance. “Rock of Love” clearly serves a purpose for him as well, to extend the life of his own career.

        Shows like this bother me, in that they perpetuate negative stereotypes of women, portraying them as females who are loud, tacky and willing to compromise their dignity for the attention of a man who

        doesn’t sincerely love or care for them. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that whoever becomes the current season’s winner will be quickly thrown aside when yet another season of this show begins. As for any of these women going on to get a legitimate career because of their participation in this show, outside of offers to do centerfolds or appear in some rock video, I doubt they can expect anything long-lasting.

        “Rock of Love” makes a mockery of what real relationships between men and women should be and is, in my opinion, a very silly show.
