I'm late to the keg party that is Bret Michael's Rock of Love. I never saw any of last year's episodes. As enticing as the prospect of following a bloated ex-hair bander's quest for love, I just couldn't do it. My friend Audra highly suggested that I give this season a try. And so I did. I Tivo'd Sunday's premier episode and had a look at it last night. My BF, my BFF and I were all cringing, laughing, vomiting, and having a grand old time watching as a herd of 20 skanks was trotted in front of Mr Michaels. There were maybe one or two of them who weren't full blown skanks (yet) but the rest were.... were.... veterans of skankiness. They are majored in skankiness in
college high school beauty school.
Here is Bret Michael. I know I heard him say at some point in the show that he's 40. The sound certainly must have gone out or there was a glitch in the sound editing as I'm sure he went on to say he's 47 or 48. If he really is 40 then that should serve as PSA about what too much alcohol and over exposure to skanks can yield. I do like that Bret wears eyeliner.
There were 20 skanks for Bret to pick from which is too many to draw. So I'm starting with just three of them.
This is Ambre and if I were told that she was born in 1953, I'd believe it. I imagine Ambre has at least 12 restraining orders taken out against her by former boyfriends, neighbors, coworkers and baristas.
This is Daisy the "sex kitten" as Bret called her. Daisy has two stars tattooed on the front of her neck which is always a good look. I'm going out on a limb here, but I feel certain that Daisy isn't very concerned with politics.
This is Aubrey and if you told me she was born Andrew, I'd believe it. Aubrey had the den mother-ish advice for her fellow contestants when she told them, "You better step it up bitches." I'm curious if anyone else confused Audrey with that french he-she Albine?
So there you have it. I haven't decided if I'll draw this show every week but I sure had fun watching. It's guilty TV watching at its worst.
Ink on paper, red wine, and some eye bleach. Each drawing took about twenty minutes.If you enjoy looking at my drawings online, the next step would be having one or two or three in your home. Interested? Click on over to my etsy shop and take a gander. And your credit card. :) Much appreciated!
