Richie Sambora Is NOT Your Next Rock of Love

|

richie_sambora_rol1.gif

Recently, a rumor circulated that Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora will be the next rocker to search for love on VH1′s Rock of Love franchise. We can report that this is ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE. Every time Rock of Love ends, people start placing their bets on which rock star will be the next to publicly search for love. Until you hear officially from us, none of that is reality.

    i think it would be great to see RICHIE SAMBORA as the next ROCK OF LOVE!!! he is a great person. And is in a band that has been togher since 1981 & has sold over130million records!!!! I think that would make him ROCKSTAR enough for this show!!RICHIE has more than enough to offer any chic that would be LUCKY enough to have RICHIE to pick her as his ROCK OF LOVE!!!

    How would you adition if you wanted to be on Rock of Love III

  5. Sandy Powell says:

    I would like to see CC do Rock of Love III, he is awesome and funny, How would you audition.

  6. Whiskeygal says:

    I get these e mails about upcoming reality show casting. And they had a statement on their last week that said.. WAIT for more info on a new ROL.. Cant WAIT to find out who its going to be. I am going to try out for anyone OTHER then BRET.. HIS time is OVER. I hope to heck its Tommy Lee. YUMMMM

  7. Sgirl says:

    I could never see Richie Sambora doing a show like this. He is in a completely different league than Brett Michaels! Not going to happen!

  8. Jen says:

    Richie is too good for this trash, sorry.
    lol. But I would kinda like to see another Tommy Lee show, BUT I doubt that’ll happen, especially now that he is back with the Crue and they’re going to start touring. I don’t think he’ll be willing to jeopardize that.

  9. Rhianna says:

    Dear God I hope there is not a ROL 3 unless Bret Michaels is the star. Ritchie Zambora
    has been ditched by so many hollywood women it is pathetic and we don’t want to see him.

    Bring back Bret with a new show ! ! !

    Denise, how does your husband know him?

  10. Radiogirl in MI says:

    Ladies there will NOT be a ROL with BRET he refused to do yet another one as he and Ambre are DATING and hanging out. That being said. THEY ( VH1 ) are looking for another rock dude to do the next ROL the formula is hot and they know it… RUMORS are the following…. KID ROCK. TOMMY LEE,, Rob Zombie..and the list is growing as we speak. LETS hope its someone hot and someone good. ROCK life forever ladies.

  11. DeniseyFL says:

    Who gives a crap about Ritchie Sambora??? Nobody–he’s probably in alcholic rehab.

    Everybody–don’t forget. BRET MICHAELS will be appearing tonight on “Don’t Forget the Lyrics”
    at 8:00 p.m. central time–Fox channel.

    Don’t miss it ! ! ! Should be great.

  12. BarbieDoll says:

    They might as well just close down VH1 if Bret is not going to do another
    show. We know that in short while the bile will spew with what’s her name
    so bring on ROL 3 with my man BRET>

    LOVE LOVE LOVE FOREVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR BRET

  13. Lollipop says:

    OMG–thankx for reminding us about Bret tonight on Fox.

    In true Bret form I know it will be a blast.

  14. Belinda says:

    I agree—it is all hype about Bret ever being with Ambre in a committed relationship.
    The man loves sexy women
    and fraid the one doing all the talking is just talkin out the rear.

  15. Karaleigh says:

    VH1—-you have destroyed the picture on this blog—–Put Bret’s face back on
    Bret’s sexy self and slap Sambora into the garbage can—

    UGHHHHHH–Sambora is so old and ugly.

    BRET’s fans want our man BRET BACK—-BRING SEXY BACK.

  16. Dia says:

    Well, that’s very disappointing. I was extremely excited by the news; I thought he was an excellent choice.

  17. Lori Losquadro says:

    Richie is too good of a musician and to proud of a person to do a show like that. Nothing against Bret Michaels, but Richie does not need a reality show to find love.

  18. Sandisays says:

    The only man fit for ROL3 is Bret.
    If he is not the star of the show then we won’t be watchin VH1 anymore.

    THERE IS NOT A ROL WITHOUT BRET “ROCKIN” MICHAELS

  19. ALYSSA says:

    AS MUCH AS I LOVE ROCK OF LOVE, AND MISS THE SHOW I REALLY HOPE AMBRE AND BRET WORK THINGS OUT. IT REALLY WOULDNT BE THE SAME SHOW IF IT WAS ANY OTHER ROCKER. AND DENISE….. HONNY U NEED TO CHILL, BRET SEEMS LIKE HE IS READY TO SETTLE DOWN AND HAVE THAT SPECIAL SOMEONE, AMBRE SEEMS SHE CAN BE THAT GIRL. I WISH THEM BOTH THE BEST AND HOPE EVERYTHING WORKS OUT!!!!!

  20. Mine says:

    I love Bret and the show… but I’m sorry, Richie is too good for this show. He’s a freakin huge @+@ rockstar he doesn’t need to exploit himself like that. I also know that he would NEVER agree to something like this. Bon Jovi has a philosophy that they keep their private lives private. That’s partly why they’ve lasted so many years and are still cranking out awesome records. Bon Jovi forever

  21. Gia says:

    I hope it’s not Richie Sambora. He treated Heather Locklear like garbage. I thought he was better than that. Tommy Lee Would be fun.

  22. MelodyGK says:

    PLEASSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEE take that ugly Ritchie Sambora face off Bret’s body.
    Who ever thought up that idea is pathetic. Sambora is a reject of Heather, Cher, and
    Denise. The Hollywood chicks know he is now only reject shank material and only then
    will he be able to date them if he is not doing time in jail for DUI.

    If you want to keep our attention you need to bring back Bret Michaels cause
    no one else wants to watch sloppy seconds while Bret reigns as ROL GOD.

  23. Kimber says:

    MelodyGK, right out of my mouth to God’s ears…………..

    if it is not Bret then we have no interest in ROL 3.

    No other is sexier than Bret—give us another show of him.
    Be creative——– if you can’t do ROL3 with him, create another show with
    our star BRET.

  24. Karaleigh says:

    47 women in our dormitory at Arizona State shout out to VH1 :

    BRING BACK BRET

    Loud and clear so you understand !

  25. Castinglove says:

    When the new ROL starts casting for women..What they do is post a CASTING HOLD on the web site… GO TO Casting.com or reality shows.com and you can get your info from there. ITS awesome. THEY will tell you when ROL will start interviewing… ITS Awesome.

  26. WHISKEY GALKaraleigh says:

    Karaleigh Can you please tell me what you and your COLLEGE friend know about BRET who by the way is 46? Just curious…. Thank you

  27. Karaleigh says:

    Well Whiskeygirl, we have parents who raised us from tots on Poison, Skid Row, Metallica,
    Motley Crue, Warrant, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith and numerous other’s music. We are carrying on in true Rocker fashion as the new generation of Poison fans. Attend Poison shows and
    love their )~% kickin style. Does that answer your question?

  28. samborababe says:

    this pic of richie is terrible, how dare they put his face on bret micheals body and with that hair eeewwwwww!!!!!!!!
    and as if richie needs help finding a woman , come to england richie there are many a beautiful english rose who would love to be your woman and im one….
    richie is amazing and this is so degrading he isnt that desperate………….
    get some one like tommy lee or kid rock who go from bimbo to bimbo,richie is more than !!!!! that he dosnt need a sad pathetic show to find love……

  29. nancy p says:

    bring in tommy lee,,after his tour,,,can you imagine the wild times in that house,,,,, i mean ,, did you all not hear about that tape he and pammy did,,why wouldnt any girls want to line up,, just to see if it were true,,,,,the wild parties, i think vh-1 should consider,, i think personally the ratings would hit the roof,,,,brett will always be remembered as the pioneer who started it,,however,,there wont be another one with him….thats my opinion at least,,,
    maybe kid rock will do it,,ya never know,,,,,,dave navarro,,,,,cant ask gene simmons ,, he already has a show,,with his family…..billy idol comes to mind gglz,,,what about eddie van halen,, hes not with valerie bertinelli ,,they are divorced,,,,,,,,

    well just a couple of thoughts,,,take care one and all

  30. Jennifer says:

    I would love to see cc do rock of love 3 he’s cool and a rock star. Ritchie Zambora mm maybe.

  31. Jamie says:

    I am a huge Bon Jovi fan and would love to see Richie on the show. He needs to find a good woman and even if he doesn’t, it would make for great tv. It wouldn’t hurt.

  32. Denise says:

    oh is that right Alyssa last night Bret was on a show on channel 11 and was with other woman ( REALPretty AND NOT FROM ROL) as he put it ” this is my special girl I love and it wasn’t Ambre YOU GET REAL ROL IS JUST A SHOW BRET DID this speacial girl he loves is just one of many girl he going out with . I know like I said My husband is friends with Bret

  33. AW says:

    If it was Axl Rose i would find out how to audition for ROL III.

  34. claudia says:

    i dont want richie on rock of love, i want richie with me!!! i just love him

  35. Adoneca says:

    Thank goodness

  36. Lori says:

    All Richie needs to do to find the right woman is call me! I absolutely love Richie and he has way too much class to do this show.
    And after watching both seasons of ROL, Brett seems smarter than someone who would think that they will find true love on a reality show. He just doing the show do have some “fun” with a bunch of good looking girls (well, some of them!)

  37. jenn says:

    Good because he is not a hot rocker! Totally grosses me out! We want more BRET!!!!

  38. what says:

    Here’s an idea for VH1, how bout you stop giving love shows to old )** rockers and rappers(bret and flav) and how about you get a rocker or rapper in his 30′s, that way, it won’t be so disgusting watching 50 year old men who need viagra to bang these 20 year old girls

  39. Ray says:

    Richie Sambora or Tommy Lee would never do a show like ROL. They’re too famous and respected as musicians to lower themselves to doing something like that. Their bands are still successful and they have lots of money and hot women to choose from. Can you picture one of them pretending to be into a skank like Heather or some of those other chicks just for money and publicity? They don’t have to.

  40. Rori says:

    Equally disappointing and not. Disappointing since I won’t get a chance to audition ;), and not disappointing because Richie is wayyyyy too good for something like this…that show really is a trainwreck!!

  41. sambora12901 says:

    Well as a Bon Jovi and a Richie Sambora fan all i have to say is thank goodness. He is a very private person. He’s not into all of drama that a reality show can bring. If he looking for love, I would so guve him so much of that. I’m not a groupie or anything like, but sure could give that my whole heart. Has nothing to do with him being a rock start either. Just the little things that i have seen him do. Never met him but i sure would like to….

  42. sambora12901 says:

    Also for the record you only hear one side of a story. How do you know that he truely treated her like garbage? What the media.? HUH………LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. Pathic, everyone always listens to one side of the story. He’s not washed up. There are many reasons why people break up. Everyone has and ex boyfriend or ex girlfriend or in some case ex wives. So before you run your mouth about something you have clue about. I think maybe you should get more facts then just (^& ume. By doing it, makes an A@@ out you and no one else but you.. Melody are totally wrong for saying stuff as i have said before because most likely do know sh*t about him or anything he has been through. But, everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

  43. mystimorgan says:

    Karaleigh,
    Richie Old?????, You do realize that Brett Michaels is only 2 years younger than Richie, not to mention the fact that his Diabetes has him walking like a 90 year old on a cane.

  44. Karaleigh says:

    Yea, I said it and I will say it again—-Ritchie looks so old in the face—-have you been to one of Bon Jovi concerts lately???? Ritchie lin person–looks over sixty with badly dyed hair. I used to be a huge fan when he was dating Cher and then married to Heather, but just don’t care for him anymore.

    Bret Michaels looks much finer in person and had maintained his sexuality across the years. Plus Bret has such a sweet, loving personality. His fans adore him because he treats them well.
    I can’t say as much for Ritchie—he was not so friendly to us fans the last time we saw him play.
    He wouldn’t even have his photo made with us. Then that latest mess with his drunk driving charge and his kids in the car at the time really turned me off as a Ritchie fan. He needs to take some
    fan friendliness lessons from John B. Jovi who always treats us like gold.

  45. Jen says:

    If your going to do any more Rock of Loves, DON’T HAVE BRET DO IT AGAIN HE WOULD LOOK STUPID. Find a Woman Rocker this time, and bring in some decent men for her to pick from.

  46. Elle says:

    Doing another ROL with someone else would be a waste of time because it would never be able to have the same big ratings that Bret had. Bret gave the show its uniqueness.
    BRET MICHAELS is who made ROL the highest viewing ever in history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If there is a new ROL without Bret I will not watch it. But if VH1 is smart they will
    create a different type show and keep Bret as the star.

  47. Candy says:

    Maybe they can do some sort of comedy show with Bret. He has a good sense of
    humor so think VH1 could write some kind of show that matches his personality.
    I heard Bret might do some sort of road rock show for them. I hope this really works
    out because I am missing seeing Bret on Sunday nights.

  48. mik_sambora says:

    me parece una barbaridad lo ke estan haciendo
    esto es algo orrible no pueden hacer este tipo de kosas
    la verdad no me parece nada agradable esta pagina…
    son todos un par de infelices ke lo uniko ke hacen es hacer BOLUDECES xke esto no tiene nombre

  49. Marty says:

    This is not Viva Hollywood—you have the wrong blog.

    Hablamos inglesa –no espanol aque.

  50. chrissy says:

    All I know is Richie, from what I see of him is just being put out there to create more frenzie drama. These reporters have nothing better to do then slash whoever is in the public eye. A good friend of mine knows him pretty well and he seems to be nothing of the sort of how they make him out to be. I would love to be on that just to let him be known how I feel, but at the same time I like my privacy and do not like to be public in my relations as far as drama goes. Richie stay strong and all this too shall pass and remember only you can make the difference.

  51. Sarah says:

    So when will you announce who it WILL be? And when will you hold auditions?

  52. Miranda says:

    I want my own rock of love show to find me a rockstar! How great would that be to fill a house with all kinds of inked up shirtless men with an open bar nonetheless, all fightin for your affections…that’s my version of reality tv, so vh1 please feel free to contact me ASAP!

  53. Kayleigh says:

    I really hope Richie is not the next rock of love. He is amazing and not a scum bag like Bret. Heck I bet Bret will do rock of love 3 cuz his relationship probably wont last.

    If they ask you…
    DON”T DO IT RICHIE! YOU ARE TOO COOL!!! INSTED MAKE ANOTHER BON JOVI ALBUM AFTER THE LOST HIGHWAY TOUR!! I’LL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!!!

    BON JOVI FOREVER!!

  54. jessica says:

    i think it would be cool if richie was the next rock of love.. he is still very good looking for his age.. as long as it doesnt prolong another cd its cool… i would love to be his rock of love!!

  55. jessica says:

    richie is still a hottie.. i do think a lot of women will try to get on the show to try to get closer to jon!!!

  56. Erica says:

    Do a show with Nikki Sixx.

  57. noisey says:

    ROCK OF LOVE 2 your suuuuuuch a nobody brad oooops!!! i hope i didnt hurt your stinking FAKE ~_$ feelings BIIIIIIIIIAAAAAATCH I HOPE YOU CAN READ CLEARY WHAT THAT SAYS NOW READ THIS BACKWARDS: DARB RUOY A KCID DAEH HCTIB DNA EKIL YSSUP HTIW SAELF…. IF YOU READ GOOD YOU MIGHT GET A FAKE T.V SHOW OFF THAT TOO IF YOU NO WAT I MEAN YOU WHITE (%(__ OR TRASH I SHOULD SAY READ THIS BLOG OR YOU’LL DIE AND YOU’LL DIE IF YOU DONT

  58. Eileen says:

    I think it should be Nikki Sixx. I would absolutely watch AGAIN! Nikki, by far, would blow Brett out of the water.

  59. Teresa says:

    I was looking forward to seeing Richie Sambora, I would sign up to be on that one

  60. Deb L says:

    Richie is way too classy to do a crappy show like Rock of Love. He is an incredible musician and son writer and certainly doesn’t need any publicity to maintain his status in the music worl. This show is for washed up nobodies that can’t make it on their music anymore. Richie continues to grow as an artist and is still on top!

  61. Rosalinda says:

    After being married for 12 years I think Richie is fine the way he is single and hope that he can enjoy it. Don’t know why everyone wants to get him married again. I agree with Deb L that Richie is to classy to be on a show like that and besides I think he is going back to the studio and record another solo album. Stay single and enjoy it!!!!!!! Richie forever

  62. Brenda says:

    I do have to agree with Deb L Richie is to good for that and Richie is coming out with other solo album but not until the band album is done so just keep checking http://www.bonjovi.com and there u can all your bon jovi news.
    I Love Richie.

  63. mayckiss says:

    no, no, no, richie this look not please

  64. running bold says:

    I should be the next &(^__!$^&%%(`~!@ of love. lol!!!!

  65. Devils-Avocado says:

    I came across this page while researcing an article for work. Oh yeah, all these guys are real catches – one has a weave and the other is an addict who drives his kid when drunk…get a grip. Would you put up with this stuff from JoeShmo down the street….? Hell, no.

  66. Sheryl says:

    Richie Sambora is a hottie. I don’t think he needs to go on a show like this, but if he did I’d watch. I love his talent and he looks amazing for his age.
