We had no shortage of reasons NOT to like Bret Michaels. His arrogant self-indulgent rock star reputation, that revolting “Rock of Love” show, that hat/fake hair situation on his head, and his endless whining on “Celebrity Apprentice” about his diabetes and his daughter’s diabetes. At the same time, on “Apprentice” he showed himself to be a more likeable, hard-working decent guy. So when he suffered the brain hemorrhage, we had already started to like him a LITTLE and really felt bad for him and hope he’s all right. Was this caused by that head-bang at the Tony Awards? At this point he has slurred speech and blurred vision and it hasn’t improved. It doesn’t sound good, but hopefully, he will recover.

    Don’t know anything about Poison, but he’s really appealing on Celebrity Apprentice. Hopefully, he’ll pull through.

    janets comments were not cold i got sick of everyone (staged-ly i might add) bringing his kid up so he could wax emotional all over it…..enough is enough…they had strangers who just met the guy bring it up come on….like he NEVER knew all that was a possibility with his kids or what? please……drama bullshit tv…..
    and its not a hat janet its a damn blasted bandana….. i wonder just how bald bret is by now>> can you say VAIN. i can relate….

    He wears Hats AND bandanas and most of the time BOTH at the same time which looks doubly STUPID! For anyone curious, there IS a pic on the internet of him bald, well you can see hair areas around the side and VERY receded top. I was surprised when I saw it and couldn’t believe he let someone catch him like that, because he’s so vain with that fake doll’s hair he always wears. You can tell it’s fake too because there is no scalp showing like with a real head of hair and it all comes out of the same area in front and goes towards the back. It looks VERY fake for someone who admitted on his “Rock of Love” show that he gets very expensive weaves. He aught to sue whoever he gets them from.

    But I am enjoying his antics on Apprentice and think he IS a genuine guy except for the horrible fakeass hair. He needs to shut up about the diabetes. A lot of people have it, including my boyfriend and if you eat right and take care of your self it’s very managable. You are NOT supposed to DRINK ALCOHOL at all when you’re diabetic!!! DUH!!!

    My ex-husband has diabetes and he’s been complaining about it non-stop for the past 15 years.
    He alternates between anger and self-pity. Occasionally he even boasts about his diabetes if he thinks it will make him the center of attention!

    How is he not going to talk about it that is the charity he is playing for! You don’t like his hair so he deserves what happend to him? Doesn’t anyone have a heart anymore?

    I never knew anything about Bret Michaels prior to his appearance on Celebrity Apprentice. I knew he had Rock of Love, but I refuse to watch that kind of garbage. I never listened to his music, so I had no connection with that. On Celebrity Apprentice, I find him to be funny and creative and compassionate. It’s also clear he likes the ladies (nothing wrong with that). I wish him well and hope he makes a full and complete recovery.

    I hope he recovers. His music still sucks though. Only middle age white trash type women seem to like it.

    Janet, that was really an ignorant comment that you made about Bret’s diabetes. Sometimes you can be so pathetic. That said, I was wondering about Bret’s hair, because with this brain thing he’s going through, he would have to have his head shaved. Bummer.

    this “rockin” & dying SISSY-BOY is allowed to think he even is important to somebody living on planet earth?

    Donald Trump was on Good Morning America today and said that a few days ago Bret was hit on the head by falling set and lights. This may be what gave him his brain injury. And, I feel very sorry for anyone with diabetes. I don’t watch boring Celebrity Apprentice and I don’t listen to Bret’s music, but I hope he recovers and starts living a productive life.

    Bret has entertained troops in the mid-east and given a lot of his time to them. He has a raunchy past of course, but after learning that he entertains the men and women fighting, I pray for his recovery.

    Hi Janet
    I am really disappointed in this posting – thought more of you to be honest. I will not be on the site again. I was a REGULAR but not anymore enough with the bashing.

    Re-read your line:

    I missed this..anyone else hear that?

    @ pinkstar…Yes, the Donald was on GMA this morning and stated this about Bret’s possible brain injury due to lights falling on him. Then, lo and behold, today at 3:00 PM CST, they replayed it on Inside Edition. However, I was in error, it was last year on some award show that Bret was exiting the stage at the same time a set boom and lights were being lowered. They even had a 10 second video on the stuff falling down hard on Bret. Then, (also on Inside Edition), a doctor came on and said that a head injury suffered in the past could still manifest later in this way. Poor guy.

    I’ll never understand how people who are diabetic go on to have biological kids when diabetes is often hereditary. He is crying/worried about his daughter’s getting it/suffering but hello! He set that up for them when he chose to do such a thing. It is a selfish act and irresponsible. He could have adopted kids to insure this would not happen – so all this crying about how concerned he is and his love for them is border annoying. I like Bret but I mean – what was he expecting?

    Bret Michaels always struck me as one of the good guys–a nice guy with a beautiful smile and killer blue eyes,who was just trying to make a living just like the rest of us, albeit doing some skanky reality show stuff at times… I don’t think that he deserves the bashing he is getting here. Given the antics of the celebs in the tabloids recently, this guy is a choirboy…and seems to be a charming, approachable one at that. Ok, the hair thing I will give you–maybe that is why he and Trump are so chummy! Bret, we love you, man…get well soon! We are all praying for you.

    I think he wears the bandana to cover up a scar on his forehead from a serious car accident he caused years ago.
    I agree, it looks stupid, but maybe there’s a reason for it besides going bald.
    I also agree that Janet was more than a tad bitchy.

    I am really happy for this man..He has been to Hell and Back and Thank God he is here and I still love his music and hear his passion in his voice and He still looks wonderful and I see his his care and concern and worries that have fade away and his joy of joy with is his heart and soul fill the room. So Smart and think fast on his feet and create-ness and He really Rocks and Rolls and has a lease on life and looks at all issues fresh and new. I like the steps he is taking in his life and it is nice of Bret Michaels to share a portion of his life with the world.

  21. By Casonia Sade Logenberry Hells kitchen is so hateful this year and pressure and swearing at other people like Scott or Andy who are lead Chef and part of Chef Gordon Ramsay is a No No and sooner or later you got to go...

    He can sing and he can make you laught and when the crap hits the fan..He gets in your face and address the issues at hand and come up with solving problems and..He is not the kind of man…Who gets up from the table and never address the issues and He is handsome and strong and is Sexy.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
