Bret Michaels Talks The Reality Of TV



Reality TV isn’t the nail in the coffin of an entertainment career that it was once considered. Take Bret Michaels, who’s arguably bigger than ever after a stint judging Nashville Star, a string of Rock of Love seasons, a victory on the most recent Celebrity Apprentice and who’s about to add yet another reality show to his resume with Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It (premiering Monday, October 18 at 10/9c). He’s so invested in the medium that he recently sang its praises to Billboard (in a, ahem, soul-baring cover story). Says Bret:

“TV has absolutely made my sales go up, made my tour guarantees go up. TV has been a great addition to my career. But the key thing is knowing what to walk away from. I advise anyone–especially musicians–to be very careful not to just grab anything they throw your way.”

There’s nothing like good old-fashioned showbiz synergy to back up any (relatively) new medium. [Billboard/ABC News]
