Once upon a time, Poison frontman Bret Michaels was looking for love in the Celebreality world. Who could forget the days of Rock Of Love and its spinoffs Rock Of Love: Charm School and I Love Money. Between the flying plates and punches being thrown – the drama made Love & Hip Hop Atlanta look like Masterpiece Theatre. In the years that have passed the ladies have all but disappeared from the pop culture landscape. From Daisy Delahoya to Rodeo, we were on a mission to find out what all our favorite Rock of Love contestants lives looked like now.
VH1 was fortunate enough to have a chat with the always memorable Heather Chadwell about her time on Rock Of Love, if she still has that tattoo and what maybe lost her, her own “Of Love” show. Check out what the blonde bombshell had to say and click through our gallery to see what the gals look like and are up to in 2014.
On Where She Is Today
“I am back in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio and I live with my boyfriend downtown and I am a realtor. I just wanted to come home and decompress – hit the restart button. I had been gone for a decade and wanted to be closer to my family and friends. I just needed a break from the fast-paced lifestyle of [Vegas and Los Angeles].”
On The Last Time She “Saw” Bret Michaels
“I’ll actually see him this Saturday, his band will be here playing. I don’t know if we’re going to chat. You know, he doesn’t seem to remember us girls that much anymore. [Laughs]”
On That Infamous Tattoo
“I literally went to get it covered up but I don’t know what to put over it. People are having a tough time coming up with what to put over it to really cover up the “Bret.” The only thing I can think of now is my wiener dog. But do I really wanna have a wiener on my neck?”
On The Girls From Rock Of Love
“I follow some of the girls on Instagram but I don’t really hang out with anybody from the shows. I really love Frenchy. She’s always been a really consistent person – she doesn’t drink, she doesn’t do drugs, she’s not dramatic. I chat with Mindy some times – she’s a Midwest girl – a real good person.”
Regrets? It Could Have Been Heather Of Love
“Yeah, I do have regrets. I know everyone says, ‘I don’t have any regrets,’ but how do you know not to act like that again or not to let someone like that in your life. Throwing plates and getting in fights – it’s all great TV but I regret the whole fight with Daisy. I had a developmental deal for my own show and I think that really…I mean, they gave it to her instead. So I regret that fight because I think it cost me my own show.”
