Rock of Love: Bret Michaels is Engaged!

December 22, 2010 07:00 AM by Shayla Perry


Well, Bret Michaels finally proposed to his longtime girlfriend and baby-mama Kristi Gibson in the season finale of his VH1 reality show, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It. And all it took from Gibson was a little patience, some good ‘ole reverse psychology, and apparently, temporary memory loss to get over the whole Rock of Love thing. Get details of the proposal and watch clips of the season finale of Life As I Know it here!

“They swore I was the guy who would never,” Bret Michaels told People magazine in an interview. “And it feels awesome.”

After being together on and off for 16 years, Bret finally popped the question to girlfriend Kristi Gibson, but not at the fancy restaurant on their anniversary like he had originally planned.

“I wasn’t ready there because I felt really strange,” said Bret. “It would’ve been like, I’m in the middle of proposing and oh, by the way, there’s a Cobb salad coming.”

Bret ended up proposing to Kristi at the couple’s house. But as he recalls, it was Gibson’s use of “reverse psychology” that helped him get over his nerves.

“In my mind, it wasn’t supposed to happen like that–I wanted it to be a little more like the movies, where the white horse gallops up and all that stuff,” Bret Michaels told the magazine. “But when Kristi said, ‘I don’t need this ring, I don’t need the piece of paper, I love you no matter what,’ she took the pressure off.

“She used reverse psychology on me,” said Michaels, “and it worked!”

“I love him for him,” said bride-to-be Kristi Gibson, who’ll be celebrating her 40th birthday on December 25th. “I’ve been through everything with him. A ring and a paper wouldn’t make me love him more. I’m just happy he’s alive.

“But this is the best birthday and Christmas present ever,” said Gibson. And though the couple hasn’t yet set a date for their nuptials, Kristi does have a few ideas in mind about the big day.

“Ever since I was young, I always said I’d want to go to some tropical island and get married on the beach,” Kristi told People, adding that she’d love to wear a dress similar to the one Megan Fox wore when she married Brian Austin Green.

“I seriously would not want a big wedding,” said Gibson. “So maybe we’ll go away and then have a huge kick-ass party with family and friends.”

And for all those naysayers who think that Michaels’ proposal was just for the cameras, Brett had this to say: “It was as real and sincere as it gets, and I feel absolutely great. And hopefully it’ll work.”
