    I actually wouldnt be suprised. I was actually just thinking that yesterday. The chances of surviving a brain hemerage are very very slim. Also to be out of the hospital soo quickly and rocking on stage. It seems odd. Also he looked just fine yesterday. It could just be one big publicity stunt

  2. 2

    Well, the thought did cross my mind. Soooo convenient, 'Reality Tv-ish', to almost drop dead, but then, not drop dead. Oh, but then it almost happens again, give some interviews, before, during and after almost dropping dead, throw in 'Oh, my daughter's borderline diabetic now, WAH, wah, waaaa, boo hoo…', come on, sometimes you can't make this stuff up, but sometimes you can.

  3. 3

    Um, thats a local fox affiliate, not foxnews genius.

  4. 4

    I am a moderate to conservative and I think that Fox News is a bunch of bullshit. Anyone who believes that garbage is stupid, delusional or both.

  5. 5

    um, thats a fox affiliate, not foxnews.

  6. 6

    That is terrible. Who says that? FOX never ceases to amaze me in their ignorance. That anchor needs to be fired. That is HORRIBLE. I hope they are ashamed of themselves, especially that guy that keeps insisting it's a hoax. And Bret, if you read this, you're truly an inspiration. Making appearances after such a courageous recovery is inspiring. You're awesome!!

  7. JCPR says – reply to this


    hey i'm thinking the same thing! if he almost died why is he going to all this events lately? instead of resting and be healthy? money is a big part i know but come on!!!

  8. 8

    Who watches that channel let alone give them any credence?

  9. 9

    At the end of the clip, the guy said "obviously…."….and you cut the clip off. If you had played the entire clip for us, we would have hear him say, "Obviously, I'm not serious". Shame on you. We all know you hate Fox but shame on you for purposely being deceitful.

  10. 10

    What's your evidence it was not a publicity stunt? Or have you researched the question?

  11. 11

    Fox News is nothing but a bunch of intolerant, hateful Nazis.

  12. 12

    We've been thinking the SAME thing. I can't even count on my fingers and toes how many appearances he's done since he miraculously recovered. And I'm a Huge Poison and Bret fan. But I'm also not stupid.

  13. 13

    R u really surprised this is a news station who is a puppet with strings in the background. Ever seen being outfoxed. The news there is a hoax!

  14. 14

    It's Fox. They don't have a sensitive, truthy, selfless bone in their bodies. It's all about accusations, slander and fear mongering over there.

  15. 15


  16. 16

    Perez, be honest … you'd do a little jig of GLEE if Bret were to drop dead tomorrow … because that would mean that he'd be out of the picture for AI, and you'd still be able to cling to any glimmer of hope that you might be considered. Every less person to be considered means you've got a shot !!! Right ?!?

  17. 17


  18. 18

    Man people are so cynical and jaded. Stuff like this does actually happen in real life. I should know since I use to work in neurology. Get a grip people. Miracles happen. And bret just seems to be a very active and ambitious person.

  19. 19

    I agree!! This guy is a total douchebag, balding hasbeen!! He is nobody and than all of a sudden he gets "ill" and all of a sudden he is everywhere. I mean seriously he performed on American Idol?!?!?!? Big fucken joke!!!

  20. 20


    You're disgusting.

  21. 21

    I love how you're calling them ignorant Perez, even though you said Michael Jacksons death was a hoax

  22. 22

    I wouldn't expect anything less from Fox News.

  23. 23

    Did anyone see Bret's young daughter crying because she thought her Daddy wouldn't make it? Would Bret honestly put his child through that for fake sympathy? And, is he somehow dragging these top docs from a hospital to talk about his condition? They don't have time to waste like that. Bret was a very fortunate man, but he shouldn't push it. FOX news is horrible!!

  24. 24

    i mean, i'm kind of torn. you have to admit, his timing IS impeccable. that is one huge publicity surge right when there's an AI judge opening. think about it, if this had never happened and someone suggested him for the judge spot, what would everyone have said? they'd have said, you're joking, right? well now everyone loves him and he's on every magazine cover and news channel. fishy. HOWEVER, fox should do something new for once and investigate their claims.

  25. 25

    People! Calm the hell down: it was NOT FoxNews Channel! It was a Fox local station, one of hundreds all over the country. @@

  26. 26

    I thought the same thing I was wondering why he was out of the hospital so soon, I don't think that the hospital would have released him so soon specially with all his health issues.

  27. SMack says – reply to this


    well.. he is going to have a special on VH1 now.. i wouldn't want to be seen for a while after being sick like that.. i'd want to rest… also if he had a brain hemorrhage wouldn't they have to shave his head????

  28. 28


  29. 29

    Bret has had diabetes all his life and that disease damages your blood vessels especially and other organs too. Bret needs to go home and REST. He should not be touring this summer either.

  30. 30

    Just because somone is on TV that doesn't mean the're smart

  31. 31

    Re: ValerieSara – Do you have a link to the entire clip? And does anybody know the names of these anchors?

  32. 32

    really this is a local channel which is completely different from for news so if you are going to bash fox at least spend some time making sure your bashing the right thing….which would have been 2 second if you would have actually looked at the video!

  33. 33

    NOT FOX NEWS. It is a local station!!! Bret needs to go home and REST

  34. trace says – reply to this


    i hope bret michaels sues that motherfucker! i'm sure that wasn't a hoax. i don't think he's the type to do that. but lindsey lohan is.

  35. 35

    First of all that was local news in New York….I agree that guy is a douche but so are you for trying to make it seem like it was the Fox News Channel. I thought there's no way any of them would of said that and sure enough FAT BOY your a douche again.

  36. 36

    YOU PEOPLE ARE STUPID. That is a local fox affiliate. Not the "Fox News" you are thinking of which is a cable news network. Two different things. Prez knows this also, he's just throwing shit up and hoping it will stick and that people will be stupid enough to fall for it.

  37. 37

    Um hello people bashing Fox News….this wasn't Fox News. It was a local Fox affiliate in NYC. Why am I not surprised that Perez failed to point that fact out????

  38. 38

    Not sure he faked it but I imagine that the seriousness of it all was exaggerated for maximum PR effect. Seems like he was more concerned with getting his face on the news more than he was afraid of losing his life.

  39. 39

    Not nice, Mario. Trying to cast doubt on the sympathy vote? What if we post a news article that says he is faking, but we'll just say "Bad fox news" so we don't look like an asshole. Not nice

  40. 40

    For those who think it's a hoax, realize that means you believe that the doctors and hospital spokesfolks who gave the information to the public were playing along with the hoax.

    I can be cynical, but I dont think a neurosurgeon and a major hospital would be playing that kind of games.

    Those who call it a hoax may be projecting a bit.

  41. 41

    There's no way doctors would make up lies for him. I'm in the medical field and that just wouldn't happen. I was shocked at his recovery from a brain hemorrhage, but I believe it. If you think about what he has really "done" though is that he sat on a stage on Apprentice for about 30 minutes and sang one song on Idol for 5, about a total of 40 minutes. He then just walks offstage and gets in a limo and goes home. Not really strenuous work, if you think about it.

  42. 42

    Fox news when will they learn to stop stating their opinions as facts.

  43. 43

    ANYONE who thinks that Bret pulled a hoax is a FUCKING DOUCHE BAG MORON.. And he took pics of himself laying half dead in intensive care right? And the head of Neuro went on NATIONAL TV to talk about it. FUCKING LOSERS.

  44. 44

    Greg Kelley is a frickin idiot. His dad is the NY police commisioner. He had a good stint on FOX NEWS for awhile but he did something stupid and was let go… Daddy pulled some strings and he got a job with an affliate. He needs to shut his stupid ass mouth. Oh and Mario FYI … he is a closeted gay. Go for it darling.

  45. 45

    I have wondered about that myself after the Trump thing, then him showing up all over the place. I am starting to call bullshit. I think it was a Trump deal.

  46. 6one9 says – reply to this


    If what happened to BRET was a hoax for another ““ 15 minutes ““ then that fucking sucks!!!!!! I doubt it though!!

  47. 47

    Dude, they're obviously joking. In fact, I'd say it's more of an ill-conceived compliment. They are basically saying he looks so good that his near-death experience must have been a hoax.

  48. 48

    Re: SMack – haha you are dumb, bret's hair has been a wig for a longggg time. Also you know nothing about brain hemorrhages, you can feel better very rapidly after having that kind of stroke.

  49. 49

    The funniest part is that you're bashing this guy, trying to give credibility to the story (cutting off the "I'm kidding" and the calling it fox news instead of an affiliate), and he's not even a rival. You were never in the running. Pathetic

  50. 50

    We get it, it's a local affiliate. Does that mean it's not mean or tasteless because it's a local news station and not Fox News? I don't think so. Someone said that was not the entire clip, I would like to see the whole thing. I will give them the benefit of the doubt until I see the whole clip. If in fact he meant what he said, the way he said it, I will be giving him my 2 cents on his thoughts.

  51. 51

    Side note: Not sure if he's still in the closet… just sayin. He might be out and about.

  52. 52


    I am glad Bret is ok, but I agree he should be RESTING even if he did make a miraculous recovery….

    PEREZ you said MICHAEL JACKSON was faking so shut up….and ENOUGH with the American Idol campaign. You will never get the job!

  53. 53

    Fox News Whores…that was a hoax. He pretended that he almost died.

    Maybe you should..

  54. 54

    Anyone who is associated with fox news or even watches it obviously has an IQ simular to that of forrest gump, and that is just a fact!!! Who cares what those morons have to say????

  55. 55

    It was ONE person who believed it, and I don't want Fox News, so I could be wrong, but it looked like it was a morning show, not the news.

  56. uw101 says – reply to this


    As multiple people have pointed out, this was NOT on "FoxNews"….it was on Good Day, New York, which happens to be on a Fox affiliate, so all the fox haters need to STFU

  57. 57

    I doubt a hoax here in san antonio before national news our local non fox news broke the news he was admitted here at local hospital before any premires on final of apprentice, AI, or anything….so ya'll be the judge

  58. 58

    i think this has crossed a lot of peoples minds. it feels like a mean thing to think but it would make a lot of sense. it would almost make more sense than what hes been saying happened. the guys a publicity whore and its worked out amazing for him.

  59. 59

    that's not fox news…how many of you people who "hate" fox news have even watched it, or for that matter can read? GOOD JOB PEREZ, NICE TO SEE YOU CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE, BUT WHAT DOES THE TRUTH HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING RIGHT?

  60. 60

    That's really rude in my opinion to even have a thought that this was all a hoax. Give me a break and be grateful that it wasn't you!

  61. 61

    I don't care if it was an affiliate station. I still hate Fox News. Either way, it's just cruel and disrespectful to say something like that about someone. He recovered from such a devastating condition, not once but twice!, and some asshole says that he was faking? Some people don't know how to just sit by and do nothing. I work with a guy who has had many surgeries and instead of getting the proper amount of rest, he comes in to work. He needs the money, but he can't stand to be at home, either. I think Brett is like that, not the smartest thing to do, but it's what he wants to do.

  62. 62

    We don't have bandwith enough to answer 'What's wrong with Fox News?' and I think your overly fond of them PH. There! I said it.

  63. 63

    oh did ya'll know that the ones who are affect most by health conditions are those who work the most and under stress. Duh studies have shown this..only in america do we litterally work ourselves to death!

  64. 64


  65. 65

    Can you really expect more from FIXed News? I think not….

  66. 66

    Re: racingwhorses – wait what? only in america do people work to death? youv never heard of sweatshops? forced work camps? poverty? people are worked to death in all kind of circumstances, in all countries. hes a guy who plays guitar and appears on tv sometimes, hes not an 8 year old sewing louis vuitton for 18 hours a day.

  67. 67

    It wasn't Fox News idiot, it was a Fox morning show in New York and it was said in jest…stop trying to make something out of this by trashing Fox News.

  68. 68

    I saw him on Oprah and CA finale…he definitely wasn't faking. I could tell there was something wrong when he was on Oprah, his face was drooping a bit and his eye did not look right, a few days after they said he had a mini stroke. On CA he could barely walk and looked fragile and weak. I just think he is a strong willed person and really doubt he would do this to his family and fans…he is a nice guy people quit trying to trash him.

  69. 69

    Well, not only did he almost die once in a two month period, but he had a stroke this past weekend as well and recovered from that rather quickly. I'm not saying it was a hoax, but I can understand the logic of it.

  70. 70

    of course perez's posse has to say it's fox news talking about this…i heard about this possibly being a hoax a week ago not on fox news, lol

  71. 71

    All you people correcting him on that its a local fox network and not Foxnews and saying that its sooo different well its really not. Heres a 1st grade lesson for you, they are both owned by the same parent company and I'll let you guess what the company's name is…. Fox is a retarded station in no matter what area you are, My local station is for Philadelphia and the morning show is hosted by an old creepy dude and young stupid pretty bimbos, and they said the dumbest things constantly. Its all bad!

  72. 72

    This story brought to you by Perez Hilton, the guy who mocked Michael Jackson for faking illness to cancel his shows. Remember it pudge boy, people don't forget that you made and ass out of yourself more than once!

  73. 73

    Yea I think its a hoax 2…. NOT….. What parent wants to leave their young children abandoned and without a FATHER. He is another human being if I knew i was going to die soon i would probably be working as hard as he is to make sure that my kids got everything that they need and right now these jobs are way to important to just ignore. Its all some stupid B.S that people invent to get ratings.!.!.!.!

  74. 74

    yeah perfect timing. Kind of like how Obama's grandmother happened to die the night before the vote. Hmmm???? What are the chances of that? Then his 1/2 sister and him went and dumped her ashes on the rocks????(google the pictures) there is actually laws in Hawaii about dumping human remains. Have to get permission (takes forever) and then you have to dump them in the water many feet away from shore…..You can't pour them on the rocks.

    PHOTO OP!!!!!

  75. 75

    I can't lie, I think its a total hoax!

  76. 76

    haha that's my news channel. i knew perez would post this sooner or later. it could be a hoax, you never know. you can't believe everything the media tells you.

  77. 77

    um….have you heard of millie vanillie? Has beens will do anything to get back in the limelight! Perez, seriously you're such a bias tool! You damn lib!

  78. 78

    so first all you do not just get over a brain hemmorage in two weeks. they have to actually remove brain matter to fix the hemmorage! you cant just get over that…i have a close friend who just survived from a brain hemmorage. she was in the hospital for 3 months and is undergoing extreme physical thearpy to help her overcome her physical problems not to mention her speech problems…so sorry i just dont buy this miracle crap because surviving a brain hemmorage period is a huge miracle to start with and if he is faking…that is monsterous because real people struggle with this everyday…how dare he cheapen their struggles for publicity..oh and honestly i love how politically one sided perez manages to make EVERYTHING! congrats youve managed to make yourself look like an arrogant one sided ass. please try and get your facts straight before you go and run your mouth. thanks

  79. 79

    wow, why don't you ask yourself that question perez? considering when michael jackson died your first post was about how he was "faking his death for publicity" you're such a fucking hypocritical douche.

  80. 80

    Re: dawnashella – what an ignorant and arrogant dumbass thing to say. i love when people like you try to insult others because all it shows is how stupid you truly are. and honestly your best insult isnt even factually based. nice try loser :)

  81. 81

    Ya he kind of is….i was talking to my mom whose a nurse and she said that looking at the pictures of him at the hosipital that he should have had like more lines in and one liike super important line idk what its called that is like essential for people who have had a brain hemmerage ….have a feeling he is faking it

  82. 82

    Talk about SLANDER Perez. you better retract that. this mention of Bret Michaels was from a Fox affiliate, not Fox News. the two are not under the same unbrella. Why would you want to spin something so dreadful? You should retract, or add teh location of that affiliate. i wouldn't be surprised if you weren't taken to court by Fox Cable channel for using their likeness to mislead your readers. shame on you.

  83. 83

    Re: SMack – NO they dont shave your head for a brain hemorrhage ONLY if they needed to do surgery and that was NOT necessary in Bret's case. They are controlling it with medication. Plus the show was filmed BEFORE he got sick..

  84. 84

    Buy this totebag: Samaritanmag.com WE CARE…BUT WE DON'T CARE WHAT PEREZ HILTON SAYS hahaha brilliant let's flood the market with these things and say what we really think of Mario

  85. 85

    That WASN'T Fox News you moron but a local affiliate station and it was that one jerk's opinion. But I guess shouldn't expect much from an agenda pushing blog-waste.

  86. 86

    Diabetes, a brain hemmorage, and a heart problem in a one month span of time, interspersed with appearances of several TV shows and a rock concert. Yes, it's true..this stuff happens all the time.

  87. 87

    I did find it kind of odd that he "bounced" back so quick, but I don't really know enough to make any type of judgment.

    You're really one to talk though, Perez, since you were the one saying that Michael Jackson was faking his cardiac arrest by saying "Heart attack or cold feet?"

  88. 88

    As far as whether or not the illness was a hoax or not… think about it… if it ever came out that it was a hoax, the bad publicity that would come would be epic and not worth the risk for one thing. Also, having to get a number of people to go along with it including Dr's that are well regarded in their field make it pretty unlikely. Watching the video provided of Bret on stage, anyone that has ever been to a Poison or Bret Michaels show knows that Bret is a lot more energetic on stage then what he was in that video. Slowly walking up to the mic to sing is not exactly what he's known for performance wise.

    In regards to the people bashing Fox, I hope to god your idea of a credible network isn't something like MSNBC or CNN or NBC or any other network for that matter. If it is then your even stupider then what you claim Fox viewers to be. Every station has bias… Fox included. Its simply silly to think that all the other networks are perfect and Fox is the anti-christ… get a fucking grip people.

    And lastly, Perez again shows up his extreme bias and stupidity by again posting something with a title that is a lie. If Perez was a real journalist which obviously he is not, he would of been fired long ago. Further proof that he will always be a wanna be…. and will never be a Idol judge cause they aint that fucking stupid.

  89. 89

    I thought the same thing. It's not really being ignorant. It's being curious. You don't just get sick with two life threatening things and then PERFORM and go on a tv show.. I think he might have been sick but maybe it wasn't as horrible as people are making it sound. At least now everyone feels bad for him and will go to his shows, I guess.

  90. 90

    I've thought that from the day he made such a speedy recovery…. I still think he faked it and the truth is about to come out.

  91. 91

    Don't be such a hypocrite perez, you were just whining about him getting sympathy votes to host IDOL

  92. Fia says – reply to this


    Actually, there may be some truth to this! His manager called one radio station in particular requesting them to play specific songs of Bret's the day before it all went down. Scout's honor.

  93. 93

    Gotta love that fox news for its accurate non biased info huh?

  94. 94

    I've seen performers who was in the WORST condition AMAZE ppl during performance.

  95. 95

    #1- this is a FOX Affiliate

    #2- why don't you put the whole clip up?? At the end you can hear him say "obviously" and if you see the whole clip it says "obviously I'm not serious."

    Only hearing what you want to hear….how typical of people like you

  96. 96


  97. 97

    Perez was a judge in Trump's Miss Universe, OF COURSE this was not a hoax….

  98. 98

    SERIOUSLY?? Becasue this news channel is on FOX, that makes it "FOX NEWS" you f*cking a**. just proves the agenda. ANYONE can have an opinion but apparently when it isn't yours, it means corruption.

  99. 99

    I generally like to be somewhat articulate, but FUCK THEM WITH A CHAINSAW WRAPPED IN SAND PAPER.

    Ugh, Fox News.

  100. 100

    Re: msloriga – bret michaels IS only on the national FOX channel, not the affiliates! get informed.
