VH1 is giving viewers a backstage pass into the life of rock icon, Bret Michaels in the new docu-series, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It premiering on Monday, October 18th at 10PM ET. The half-hour series will give fans a never-before-seen look into Bret’s family life – the real center of his world from which he draws his unsinkable strength.
After the lights have dimmed on stage and the music stops for the night, Bret rolls off the tour bus right into the loving arms of his daughters Raine and Jorja, who affectionately refer to him as “Poppa Rocka.” But raising two little girls and being a rock god doesn’t always go hand-in-hand, and now fans can get a peek at what keeps Bret going. Is it the hordes of wild fans, the glory of super stardom, or is it the unconditional love from his family? Watch as Bret juggles life on the road, his career, raising two kids and managing his on again off again relationship with their beautiful mom, Kristi.
“Bret is like family to us and has always been a huge hit on the network, headlining several series that have garnered record breaking ratings so we are tremendously pleased to be giving viewers a backstage pass to his life in his new series, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It,” said Jeff Olde Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production. “Seeing Bret not only as a rock icon, but also in his real life with his kids, Raine and Jorja, and their mother Kristi gives real access to the life of a celeb who puts his family above all else.”
