Poison frontman Bret Michaels wants to quell the rumors about him taking the empty judging spot on “American Idol” before the rumors even gain any footing. He said that he has no plans on judging singing talent or even looking for love on television for the foreseeable future.
His rep Jo Mignano said that Bret wasn’t even thinking about doing a dating show after it was announced that Bret and long-time girlfriend Kristi Gibson called it quits. The rep said, “The truth is, anyone who knows Bret’s family and knows him as a father and a friend would truly understand that he is hurting over the separation, and the last thing he is thinking about is doing a dating show.”
As far as the “American Idol” rumors are concerned, his rep said that Bret is “honored” but “feels that position has long been filled.”
What’s left on television for the rocker to do? A “Celebrity Apprentice” all-stars show, of course. The rep added, “The only real consideration on the reality TV front at this moment is returning to do an All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. Donald Trump has asked Bret to return to do battle for charity as Trump knows Michaels’ struggle as a lifelong type 1 diabetic and his passion to win will make the competition fierce.”
Did you even consider Bret as being in the running for “American Idol”? Would you watch him come back to “Celebrity Apprentice”?
