When ‘Celebrity Apprentice‘ and ‘Rock of Love‘ star Bret Michaels first joked about ‘Rock of Love: The Boardroom,’ we thought he was kidding.

But, now, we’re not so sure. Consider the evidence…

Read: Bret Michaels’ ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Blog

Crush No. 1: Ivanka Trump: His fascination with boardroom babes began in his exclusive blog for Fancast on March 15 when he wrote, “The toughest thing for me, I have to admit, out of the whole ‘Apprentice’ experience was sitting across from Ivanka Trump because she is smart, funny, witty, charming, and beautiful. The hardest part was to not sweat profusely sitting in front of her. I kept thinking, “Could we just have one last episode of ‘Rock of Love’ in the boardroom?”

Crush No. 2: Maria Kanellis: In his March 22 blog, Michaels got downright dirty talking about ex-WWE diva and current ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ cast mate. “I gotta say, the Maria Kanellis moment with that very large red, white, and blue Popsicle gave me so many emotions. I found it extremely erotic. I couldn’t turn away. It was a little bit of porn mixed in with business. And, I don’t think that’s a bad thing. A plethora of emotions sparked in me with that red, white, and blue Popsicle. It was patriotic, pornographic, and good business. I’ll admit it, I felt horny. It was a fantastic tease. We were all like, ‘Hurray for the red, white, and blue!’”

Crush No. 3: The Hot Graphic Designer: On March 29, he addressed his on-air flirting with the graphic designer brought in to help with a challenge. “There may have been a little of this and a little of that going on. And, the graphic designer was absolutely beautiful and very smart, but I was respecting her to get the job done. Was she attractive? Absolutely. Was I in that frame of mind? No.” Do we believe him? Hmmm…

Crush No. 4: CNBC’s Erin Burnett: On Sunday night’s episode of ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ the rocker was crushing hard on CNBC anchor Erin Burnett big-time. Even, shall we say, following her around like a puppy just for the chance to keep talking with her? We caught up with Michaels yesterday and he told us, “I have watched Erin for years. I really have. And I think that she is very, very mega-attractive and what adds to her attractiveness is that she is very together, smart, funny, and she can roll with it. She’s just cool. She’s together. At one point I was just talking to her because I liked talking to her.”

Does this mean that Michaels is trading in his love for the ‘Rock of Love’ hotties for the more mature and classier boardroom babes? Could his taste in women really be maturing? “You know what?” he tells us. “It’s a scary thought, but my taste could be maturing. I’m not sure. I don’t know what’s going on.”

He does know, though, that he has another reality TV show coming at us this fall. But he wouldn’t confirm if it is indeed what we all expect: season four of ‘Rock of Love’ on VH1. (That’s our bet!)

“Let’s just say I’ve got something in the cooker coming this fall,” he says. “Something very exciting coming this fall. I can’t say specifically. It is a reality shows.”

He also loves the idea of ‘Rock of Love: The Boardroom.’ “I think it should be a ‘Rock of Love’ business women edition,” he adds.

Do you think a leopard can change its spots? Will you tune into another season of ‘Rock of Love’ – boardroom edition or not? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
