He may still be in the hospital recovering but Bret Michaels continues to be a television force to reckon with.
A new VH1 documentary called Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It is set to air on Memorial Day. It will give viewers an insider’s perspective on the rocker’s home life, including his relationship with daughters Raine and Jorja and with their mom Kristi.
“After Bret’s recent appendectomy and life threatening brain hemorrhage, we’re so happy that he is on the road to recovery and coming back to VH1 in Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production. “Bret is family to us and has always been a huge hit on the network, headlining several series and specials that have garnered record breaking ratings and made a strong connection with our audience.”
Olde confirmed to RadarOnline.com that the network has “temporarily halted production” on the series while Michaels recovers.
“Production will resume when it is cleared by his doctors. If anyone can fight off illness and get back on his feet, it’s Bret. But in the meantime, in response to the flood of well wishes the network has received from Bret’s fans, we’d like to celebrate Bret’s recovery with this sneak peak special featuring the next chapter in Bret’s story on VH1. It’s a never-before-seen look into Bret’s family life- the real center of his world from which he draws his unsinkable strength.”
The series will air on Monday, May 31 at 10 PM ET/PT on VH1 and Michaels’ next album Custom Built comes out on June 8.
