How do we know that Bret Michaels is a changed man? Because he says in an interview that his upcoming reality show - titled Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It and premiering October 18 on VH1 - centers on his "two passions."
Neither of these includes banging groupies in the bathroom of his trailer. See, it's a whole new Bret!
"Viewers will see me interacting with my family and making music on the road," the rocker says of the series.
Michaels has two daughters (Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5) with Kristi Gibson, someone who has been in his life for over 16 years.
"[This] show is different because it is unprotected reality, proving how hard it is for me to balance my love for the girls and my work on the road," he says. "In the show, I learn both patience and negotiating skills from my daughters, and at the same time I talk to them about serious issues like life, death and protecting themselves from harm. It is totally fun!"
