Bret Michaels Hospitalized After Massive Brain Hemorrhage

Updates on Bret's condition are available on his Twitter page and also in notes on his Facebook page, where it says he's still in the ICU.

I'm sorry to report rocker Bret Michael's had a massive brain hemorrhage and is in the hospital in critical condition, reports the Huffington Post.
 >>  Joann Mignano, Michaels' New York-based publicist, confirmed a report on People magazine's website that said the former Poison frontman was rushed to intensive care late Thursday after a severe headache. The report said doctors discovered bleeding at the base of his brain stem.

Mignano said tests are being conducted but did not know where he was being treated.

Yes, I watch the Celebrity Apprentice, usually on demand cable, and until that show, I hadn't paid much attention to Michaels. He's been one of the highlights of the show for me though this season with his unfocused creative energies and great eyes behind man-liner. He can't win, but he has been entertaining.

I know reality shows are partially scripted and certainly manipulated, but I believed Bret when he was so upset about the possibility his daughter could be a Type 1 diabetic as he is and require insulin shots. My prayers are with him and his family.

Here's a video clip of Bret from the show.
