Bret Michaels has managed to remain the topic of major headlines for decades. He first made his mark on our pop culture conscious, as the frontman for the metal band, Poison. The group has sold nearly 30 million albums since they formed in the early 80s, and has seen their share of ups and downs. Mr. Michaels drug use during the late 80s and early 90s, almost derailed the group's success, as did the drug use and behavior of guitarist, C.C. Deville, but eventually both men got back on track. For the last decade, he has gone back and forth between Poison reunion tours and a solo career, and has also begun to appear on a steady string of reality shows. He served as a judge on the show, "Nashville Star", starred on three seasons of "Rock of Love with Bret Michaels", won "Celebrity Apprentice 3", and appeared in a documentary about his daily life, "Bret Michaels: Life as We Know It" in 2010. He also had a number of health-related issues in 2010, including a cerebral hemorrhage, the discovery of a hole in his heart, and an appendectomy. After a relatively calm 2011, he is back in the spotlight, as the music of Poison is featured in the musical film, "Rock of Ages". The film, which stars Alec Baldwin, Julianne Hough, and Tom Cruise, already took Broadway by storm, and anticipation is high for the screen treatment. Mr. Michaels recently gave his approval of Tom Cruise's performance of some of Poison's hit songs, while taking a break from filming yet another reality series, "Celebrity House Hunting".
Bret Michaels' house in Scottsdale, Arizona is quite palatial and sits on 10 acres of land. The compound features multiple buildings and a bike racecourse. Bret Michaels' house seems pretty awesome. However, he has decided to move into a nicer place with his family. Most recently, he has considered a massive mansion in the gated Silverleaf community of Scottsdale. The $10.5 million property features six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. It rests on 3 acres of land and is 11,000 square feet. The home also contains a theater, a wine room, a massive indoor kitchen, and another outside, a children's wing, a swimming pool, and gorgeous views of downtown Phoenix. Whether he will choose the house is still up in the air, but it seems like, in the case of Bret Michaels' house, he can afford to look at multiple options.
