The romance, so to speak, is dead.

After winning VH1's reality series "Rock of Love with Bret Michaels," Naperville native Jes Rickleff said Sunday that she is not dating the Poison lead singer.

Due to show rules, the two were forbidden to speak between the taping of the finale about six months ago and the filming of the reunion show, which aired Sunday night.

Still, Rickleff said the monthslong silence speaks volumes.

"If it was for real, and you really wanted to see somebody, you make it work," she said. "Our cell phones aren't tapped.

"There was quite a bit of editing during Sunday's show, and I was a lot (meaner). And that was my whole point of the reunion show: that it wasn't real," she said.

Currently, Rickleff is living in the Chicago area, dating a local man and working in Naperville.

"I have a boyfriend, and I wouldn't give him up for the world, not even a rock star," she said. "And I'm still working like a normal person."

Not all of her life is normal anymore, though. She is currently working with an agent and booking public appearances, promoting a clothing line and designing her own jewelry. Her next area appearance will be Oct. 16 at Level nightclub in Chicago.
