    It surprises me what CNN will let you get away with. You can google anything, but they can't figure our how to keep someone from cussing on their blog. What a bunch of Pu55ies.

    Bret just can't seem to make a commitment. Maybe he wants to do another "Rock of Love". He cheated death a couple of times and it's a shame he can't seem to make it work with this girl - (I think that's the one he has kids with).
