Poison front man Bret Michaels' new dating reality show "Rock of Love" premiers July 15 on VH-1. Twenty young ladies get the chance to vie for the has-been rocker's affection and hilarity ensues.

I interviewed Michaels a couple of years ago, and he was singing a different tune concerning shows like this one. While he did make a go at reality television once before on "Nashville Star," USA Network's "American Idol"-style talent show to find the next country music star, he had this to say regarding VH-1 shows like "The Surreal Life," which matches up played-out pop culture icons such as Bronson Pinchot of “Perfect Strangers” and baseball juicer Jose Canseco in a “Real World”-style soap opera (this was before his pal C.C. DeVille went on the show):

"You will never catch me on 'Surreal Life.' I'm not broken down yet. The biggest honor is having not received a letter from 'Surreal Life.' I've never watched those shows. I would just want to shake the people and say, 'You've had a great run. It's done. Let it be done," he said. "When it's done, let me know I'm dead."

Um, Bret, you're dead.
