Girls do physical fighting, also verbal. Female Butts are seen, and girls sometimes hook out of their clothes. Words like H**ker, B*tch (BLEEPED),Wh*re (BLEEPED), F*ck (BLEEPED), Sh*t, which is unbleeped. Brandi spits on Destiny in one episode.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

If you liked the voyeuristic car crash that was The Flavor of Love, but prefer glam rock to hip hop, ROCK OF LOVE WITH BRET MICHAELS has your name written all over it. Michaels, whose one-on-one interviews intermingle with footage of time spent with the women, seems relatively down to earth. But his appreciation for a woman who's clearly drunk beyond comprehension -- he says, with a wink, that they could "find a way to communicate" -- is hardly role-model behavior.

This crass example of what people will do for time in the spotlight isn't a good pick for teens -- or, frankly, for just about anyone ... unless the guilty-pleasure aspect of it all makes the idea of watching the women (and Michaels) embarrass themselves for your viewing pleasure irresistible.
