Lots of dude news in the media today! Bret Michaels’ new reality show Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It starts up for real on October 18 at 10pm! VH1 ran a teaser special in May, I think it was, that was basically a sneak peek first episode, full of Bret’s adorable kids and on-again off-again baby mama. Does it make me like Bret Michaels even more? Hell yeah, it does—the man shows startling glimpses of self-awareness. It’s all that’s keeping me from making thousands of jokes about this picture:

Former (and, uh, current) The Bachelor bachelor Brad Womack is returning to the show, this time to find love! For realz! Brad first appeared on The Bachelor three years ago, in 2007, and shocked the world when he pulled a Kelly Taylor and declined to choose between DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft (no word on if he was thinking, “I choose me!” at the time) as the final rose of his heart. His rationalization for trying again? He’ll meet 25-30 women he’d never meet in regular life. Really—that’s his reasoning. Look, buster: you could drive a MILE and meet 25-30 women you’d never otherwise meet. And, as Brad told Ellen Degeneres, he’d walk away again if he doesn’t find twu wuv. He takes this very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that he’s willing to do it in front of America! Let the heartbreak begin! I bet a thousand dollars that the producers bring back (or are trying to bring back) DeAnna and Jenni, even though both ladies are engaged. Pretend you don’t know! Reality television is all real!
And finally, Michael Bolton is kind of nuts, and last night’s Dancing With the Stars goes out of its way to illustrate that fact:
