Now that Rock of Love 2 has wrapped up, winner Ambre Lake can finally speak out about dating Bret Michaels. Here are excerpts from a recent chat with VH1:
How has it been spending five months away from Bret? Do feelings change?
Absolutely not. We talked about that at great length. He told me, "Listen, we can't see each other. I'm not even supposed to call you. You need to know what you're up against." I told him that I knew what I signed up for. I'm a strong, confident woman. I'm not needy. Was it hard? Of course. But I feel like it was well worth it.
So you're every bit as in love with Bret as you were in Cancun?
Did you speak with him during the time between the filming and the reunion?
He got in touch with me several times, and we saw each other. We spent time together and we talked about it, but it was good. I needed to see him. It was nice.
Where are you in your relationship now?
I'm dating Bret. I'm not disillusioned. I don't think we're going to run off and get married. We're dating and we're going to see how this dating process holds, because we were in Cancun, we were on these challenges, I was fighting for love. Now it's time to see how this works in the real world.
