Bret Michaels Won’t Let Aging Groupies Suffer Alone


Even though the concept of the show sounds like a snoozefest, last night’s “Do Something Awards” on VH1 was surprisingly entertaining. The big celebrity winner of the night was Leonardo DiCaprio, for donating $1 million to the Haiti Relief Fund. The big civilian winner was 23-year-old Jessica Posner, who started a school for girls in the largest slum in Africa. She took home a $100,000 check for her cause. VH1 livened things up by getting the awesome Jane Lynch to host. (Academy Awards, are you listening?!?!) And they also created some hilarious videos for the event, like this one from Bret Michaels. “After years of hard public and private service both on the road and on bended knees, many groupies have found themselves with personal and financial problems,” he says without cracking a smile. “That’s why me and my colleagues have banded together to start Groupie Love, the first retirement community for aging groupies.” Oh wait, wasn’t the “Rock of Love” bus technically the first?

Bret Michaels And Miley Cyrus Duet On “Good Morning America”


Look, I’m a Poison fan from way back. I even have a thong somewhere that says “Poison Partied Here” on the crotch. I’m not into Bret Michaels the TV star — I prefer Bret Michaels the Rock Star. And I most certainly do not approve of the Bret Michaels who allows Miley Cyrus to duet with him on the classic hair metal ballad “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Is nothing sacred? Keep reading »

Bret Michaels Hired On “Celebrity Apprentice”

This is strange—but apparently there were others things going on in the world last night besides the series finale of “Lost“? For example … the season finale of “Celebrity Apprentice.” Bret Michaels didn’t let a silly thing like a brain hemorrhage followed by a warning stroke keep him from competing in the live finale. He limped a tad but seemed otherwise all good for the final challenge—creating a new flavor of Snapple iced tea and an ad campaign to go along with it. With his Diet Trop-A-Rocka tea, he beat out challenger Holly Robinson Peete. Not that she was mad. “I know the whole country is pulling for Bret,” she Tweeted before the taping. “In many ways I am too!” Go Bret. Glad you made it back. Though lay off “Rock of Love” for a while, OK? That show just can’t be good for your health. [People] Keep reading »

Will Bret Michaels’ Body Stop Rebelling Against Him?

Just as Bret Michaels was recovering from a brain hemorrhage, and got the okay from his doctors to make the trip to New York to appear on the live finale of “Celebrity Apprentice,” he’s back in the hospital with a slate of new medical conditions. Earlier in the week, he was feeling numbness on the left side of his body. Doctors determined that he had had a “warning stroke”—a condition that gives stroke-like symptoms but doesn’t do permanent neurological damage. As they ran MRIs and CT scans on Bret, doctors found another problem—our “Rock of Love” casanova has a hole in his heart. No, literally. And this is on top of his diabetes and the emergency appendectomy he had in late April.

Quotable: Bret Michaels Is Feeling Much, Much Better

“I’m lucky to be alive. I said in these exact words, ‘Am I dying? If I’m dying, I want to see my kids, but if I have a chance, I don’t want them to see me in this condition.’ … What I want to do is make a positive bucket list and say, ‘I’m just gonna go for it.’ [Getting married] may be one of the big things on the list. … I’m a believer it’s a combination of will and good faith. Will—and good medical attention—and faith. It just wasn’t my time yet. I really believe that.”

Bret Michaels Is Still In Intensive Care

Yes, it was a great weekend. But there was one dark cloud hanging over it—the fact that Bret Michaels, the frontman of Poison and Romeo of “Rock of Love,” had a massive brain hemorrhage and was in intensive care for the past three days. The latest news is that Bret is conscious, but he remains in the ICU, where doctors will continue testing to find the source of the bleeding. His speech is slurred, his vision is blurry, and he’s feeling intense dizziness. “[It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation,” a source told People.

Quotable: Bret Michaels Gets Googly-Eyed Over Ivanka Trump

“The toughest thing for me out of the whole ‘Apprentice’ experience was sitting across from Ivanka Trump because she is smart, funny, witty, charming and beautiful. I kept thinking, ‘Could we just have one last episode of ‘Rock of Love’ in the boardroom?’”

Cyndi Lauper, Bret Michaels, Sharon Osbourne Make For A Rockin’ “Celebrity Apprentice 3″

Donald Trump isn’t so good at keeping secrets. The cast for “Celebrity Apprentice 3″ is supposed to be under wraps, but paparazzi photographers totally caught these famous business wannabees walking down New York’s 15th Street shooting the opening credits. And, uh, I never thought I would say this, but I can’t wait for the premiere. This season’s cast is amazing—like “Dancing with the Stars” caliber. Cyndi Lauper, Rod Blagojevich, Bret Michaels, Sinbad, Sharon Osbourne, chef Curtis Stone and baseball legend Daryl Strawberry—it’s way more surreal than “The Surreal Life.” And we just heard that, until an hour ago, Cyndi and Sharon were waiting tables at the Burger Heaven on 63rd Street, where they’d created the day’s menu. Meanwhile Bret and Curtis were doing the same at the franchise on 53rd, and maybe charging $100 for a platter? Ooh. Ooh. I know what should happen. Maybe Bret and Cyndi will hook up “Rock of Love” style? That’d be really sweet. [NY Post, Midtown Lunch] Keep reading »
