The Story Of 'Rock Of Love,' As Told Through Alcohol, True Crime, & Chunky Belts

Since we premiered our TV origins podcast TV. Watch. Repeat. in late 2020, we've covered the classics: Seinfeld, Friends, Sex and the City, and more. And, this week, we continue the trend of saluting the greats with... 2007's Rock Of Love.

Bear with us, because, watching almost 15 years later, we've made the conclusion that Vh1 did, indeed, give us nothin' but a good time by delivering the Bret Michaels-starring Bachelor knock-off, following in the footsteps of the network's iconic and ever-so-watchable Flavor Of Love. But how did Rock Of Love get off the ground? My co-host Allison Piwowarski and I explore the origins of the reality series, plus the alcohol-fueled ridiculousness and chunky belts.

Listen below to learn the story of Rock Of Love, how Michaels got involved, and just how real the series actually was. Plus, details about the murder that ended Vh1's Celeb-reality reign.

So grab some Jameson, kick back, and listen to our new episode of TV. Watch. Repeat. on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts. Also, be sure to check out our daily pop culture podcast, Pop Chaser, as well as Christian Gray Snow's The Slut Pig Podcast and Samantha Bush's Hot Off The Mess.

Oh yes, we're threatening you with a good time.
