Bret Michaels finally pops question to girlfriend



Bret Michaels and Kristi GibsonBret Michaels is off the market. Sorry about that, Rock of Love skanks. It seems the Poison frontman popped the question to his girlfriend of 16 years, Kristi Gibson, during Monday night's finale of his VH1 reality show, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It, and she said yes.

(Presumably after beating him halfway to death for waiting 16 years. I mean, they have two kids together and all. And, well, who am I to talk? Back to the story.)

"In traditional form, the rocker, 47, got down on bended knee and professed his love for Gibson, 39, saying: 'I want you to be my wife. Please say yes, or the rejection will kill me right now'," Radaronline reports.

(Okay, one last thing to say. He didn't die from the backdrop falling on him during the Tony Awards. Or the emergency appendectomy. Or the brain hemorrhage. Or the hole in his heart. But if the girl he's been "just dating" for 16 years says no to a proposal made on a reality show, that's the fatal dagger? He is a golden god. Really.)

"They swore I was the guy who would never," Michaels told People magazine on Tuesday. "And it feels awesome."

"I love him for him," Gibson, 40, told the magazine. "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."
