Bret Michaels To Undergo Heart Surgery In The Fall

| Filed under: InspirationReality TV

We were sincerely hoping that Bret Michaels' luck would turn around with his Celebrity Apprentice win last night, and from the looks of it, it has!

The rocker revealed that in the wake of his three massive health scares, he will be letting his body relax for the summer, and once he's not relying on any medications, he'll have the latest issue - a hole in his heart - taken care of in the fall!

He says:

“What they’ll do is they’ll go in and they’ll do the heart operation in the fall. They have to let everything clear out and then they’ll go in and do the operation in my heart and then I’m gonna be great. I don’t have any other options except to think that it’s gonna be great, it’s gonna be a smooth operation and I’m gonna feel awesome.”

We can't praise him enough for maintaining such a positive attitude through this horiffic ordeal!

Congratulations again, bb! Stay healthy and keep that chin up!

    So what?



  2. 2

    why do you keep flooding us with this guy that wasn't even really famous 30 years ago? you are obviously getting paid to plug people. NO ONE CARES ABOUT THIS NON CELEBRITY.



  3. 3

    I agree with Shittin-condoms….this guy was always a loser and now he is milking his 15 minutes. As far as this new developement, i too had a stroke 6 years ago when I was 35, I am a female and had the same issue he has in his heart. this is not even consider an operation. PFO closure is very simple, an outpatient procedure, not a big deal. They will go in with a catheter in his groin, put a little umbrella to close the hole and that's it! Easy breezy! Too much ado about nothing…You suck Perez!

    I wish him the absolute best of luck! I use to be so so about him, especially during the Rock Of Love days but I have seen him in a whole new light! He should have been showing us his endearing ways years ago…He seems so sweet and nice. Get better Bret because we love you!



  5. 5

    I really did think 'who cares about him' when the whole 'Apprentice' thing started, but from what I have seen he seems like a genuinely good guy. I hope it all works out for him.

    OH EM GEE I AM SO SICK OF THIS FUCKASS

    I for one LOVE Bret Michaels. He's an amazing singer and performer. He helps raise so much awareness for diabetes and is always nice to his fans! My thoughts are with him and I hope he gets better soon. If he needs a nurse to take care of him…he can certainly call me! ;)

    he should die immediately for wearing those terrible Affliction shirts.



  9. 9

    For those who dissed Bret, apparently you did not watch CA and have no idea how kind and funny and dedicated Bret is as a person. He won over millions of viewers because of his genuinely nice personality.

    If you had watched it, you wouldn't say anything bad about this smart, hardworking and nice guy.

    Re: goddamnjesus

    You are mean and mean people are not liked by others. You will not go very far in your life.



  11. 11

    would pay 50 bucks to see his bare head



  12. 12

    I think this is all BS! He makes me ILL just to look at his old wrinkly face and his burnt straw like hair that only grows from the side and back because I KNOW FOR A FACT he's BALD on top! He is a disgusting pig! HE spent the 80's banging girls 16 yrs old thru age 30 and people think he's a good guy?? He's a JERK! He has children and he's always on these reality shows ROCK OF LOVE trying to screw more girls that are too young to even know what he was famous for, they just know he USED to be famous! I cracked up laughing when from ICU he was still wearing the bandana!!! I mean…if I just had a brain hemorage I wouldn't be wearing anything tight around my head..maybe all those tight bandanas contributed to that hemorage..JUST BUY A TOUPEE like everyone else..you look rideiculous anyway..you look like you're 60! You're not sexy or hot or ANYTHING. You don't hold a candle to the guys that are HOT right now…so just go away..YOU ONLY WON the show last night because you used the sympathy card..plain and simple.



  13. 13

    Geez Perez, a couple weeks ago you were calling him names and blaming his health on him druggin' & boozin' all those years ago, and now you're calling him "bb" and wishing him well. You are such a frickin' loser Perez! You're a two faced, back stabbing, self-abosrbed dick. You ought to pay attention to the way Mr. Michaels handles himself, he is one of the nicest, most GENUINE, caring and sincere celebs out there today….everything you are NOT.



  14. 14

    If it were true and you almost dies and all that, then you're pretty freaking selfish to push yourself to show up at the Apprentice show just so you could win..I mean, did you ever think that pushing yourself might make you DIE and your kids would be without a father??? Just a thought..I mean if you even think about the kids you have instead of milking all of this sympathy for EVERY SINGLE SECOND you can…YOU BRETT MICHAELS ARE PATHETIC so just go away! I'm so sick of seeing your "Stuck in the 80's" lame ass self!



  15. 15

    but he must have had the hole his whole life, right, and it went undetected? My son was born with a hole that closed itself up before we knew it was there. So this all seems very odd to me that a hole would just appear in his heart, I think it must have been there all along…hhmmm. Strange. Good thing they caught it. Closing it is a fairly easy operration, as far as open heart surgery goes. Maybe they will do the surgery laprascopically? Good luck to him.



  16. 16

    RIP BRET MICHAELS. DOUCHE BAG WONT MAKE IT OUT ALIVE. HE WILL DIE IN SURGERY. WATCH FOR THE HEADLINES AT THE ENQUIRER NEWS STANDS NEAREST YOU!!



  17. 17

    OMG one more chance for us to be rid of this piece of shit!



  18. 18

    Love him or hate him, have some fucking decency and quit wishing the man dead people!! I was a Poison fan (eons ago, in the 80's, and I outgrew it), and Bret is really a genuinely nice guy who always has time to say hi to his fans.



  19. 19

    But seriously dude, lose the fucking bandanna and embrace the bald already…

    GRRRRRR PEREZ!!! We're not even up to the finale of The Celebrity Apprentise in Australia yet!!!! YOU RUINED MY LIFE BY TELLING ME WHO WON!!



  23. 23

    Re: Spitfire1 – You are such a mean person, no wonder you can not understand why so many people love Bret.

    He is just a genuinely nice, honest, fun loving and hardworking person. I really feel sorry for you. I bet you have no friends!



  24. 24

    OK, that's it; this guy is corpse waiting to drop.



  25. 25

    hes one tough cookie



  26. 26

    and the sympathy tour/death watch will continue every second of the day until then. Milk it, honey, this is the best promotional material you've had in your career.

    Re: fuckmario – Why do you read Perez if you tell him to F off? It's so funny how you and some other's put other people down. I know people that do that are insecure with themselves and it's a sad thing. But no one says you have to read about Bret Michaels or whomever else you don't like. Perez is not THROWING him at you to read. Other decent human beings may want to know how he truly is doing!! Why don't you go crawl under a rock and be alone since it seems your life sucks.



  28. 28

    Re: shittin_condoms – As I said to the other person below you, DON'T READ ABOUT WHO YOU DON'T LIKE!!!!! He doesn't FLOOD you with information. And why do you read it??? All you people that make nasty comments are I am sure so sad and incontent in your lives. It's so sad. Didn't your Mom raise you right and if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all? RUDE!!!!!



  29. 29

    Get well Brett. Some decent human beings on the earth are rooting for you. Others who write negative, hurtful mean things are just unhappy with themselves and need to get a life. I am sure most of them are teenagers that don't know right from wrong but some people do have a heart and soul.



  30. 30

    Best wishes Brett!

    Re: Sunnygirl17 – That's sad that you had to make those abnoxious comments about be…so you know, I have an amazing life, I live in NYC, my life is far from sucky, girl..I did not even make a comment about Perez…he is just a bit hipocritical if you ask me, but that everybody knows… Why so pissy Sunnygirl?

    Re: zumagirl – Hey Zuma girl…you are almost right on your assumption. I too had a hole in the heart, a PFO like Bret's to be exact and I only found out after I had a stroke myself…all people are born with a hole in the heart but still when a baby the hole closes up, like your child, other that don't have the problem later on in life pretty much like we did. I had the procedure, is not really an operation, it's done in your groin area, a catheter is put all the way to the heart and they insert a little mess (like a little umbrella) to close it up. Then you have to take a medication to help the closure and that's it. I hope I could be of help. Cheers!
