In a recent interview with VH1, Taya opened up about her experience on Rock Of Love. Does Taya truly love Bret? How does she feel about all of his previously failed relationships? Find out what’s been happening with her and Bret since the show, and what her thoughts are for their future.
As we all know from the finale, Bret purchased an engagement ring but decided to hold on to it until they got to know each other better. When asked how she felt about this, Taya told VH1, “Disappointed isn’t the word I’d use. I thought it was the right decision, given how he felt. I don’t think anyone should expect a ring unless you’re both 100 percent sure. He left it open for the future, and the gesture at least showed me that he’s serious about a serious commitment. It told me his heart was in the right place, and that was reassuring.”
Another reality that Taya must face is the fact that several of Bret’s past relationships haven’t worked out – so does she think theirs will be any different? “I think that our lifestyles complement each other so well. I don’t see a need for a lot of strategy. Whereas with some of the other girls, they might have to finagle this or that, I’m already on the road. It’s not like I work 9 to 5. My job as it is, I can go, ‘Hey, Bret’s going to be in Vegas. Can you schedule my trip to Vegas while he’s there?’ I have a lot of freedom when it comes to scheduling. If it can work, it will,” she said.
So, is Taya in love with Bret or not? She responded, “I don’t throw that word around carelessly. I love my son. I would take a bullet for my son. If my son needed my heart, I would give it to him. That’s how I know what love is. I never say that word even if I feel like the feelings I have are bordering on love. If I ever say that I love you, you can take thatshit to the bank, because I think the worst thing you can do is tell someone you love them and then take it back. I think that’s the problem with relationships in general. Bret and I have a lot in common. We had a lot to build on after leaving the show. Our lives are amazingly compatible. I have a child, he has children. We both grew up around music. We have Catholic families. We both grew up with meager beginnings; with small town backgrounds. There were a lot of reasons why we bonded. They didn’t show our deepest moments of connection on the show. If ever two people could fall in love, I’m sure it is us.”
