Bret may have gotten kicked off The Celebrity Apprentice early!

Bret Michaels is the king of finding love on reality TV, but don’t expect him to win the upcoming third season of Donald Trump’s The Celebrity Apprentice on NBC! The Rock of Love star, who’s currently prepping for his solo tour, recently spoke with HollywoodLife.com exclusively and he told us not to expect to see much of him this season. “I warn people… please tune in early,” he told us.

The Donald’s hit show premieres March 14 with a very diverse group of celebrities, including Sharon Osbourne, comedian Sinbad and former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. “I was excited to meet everyone there,” Bret told us. “I literally came in the first day from a show in Mexico, so I didn’t get much of a chance to bond before. I have my ‘Spinal Tap’ moments — the person I knew would be fierce competition was Sharon Osbourne.”

Bret realizes that most people see him as a party boy, girl-obsessed rock star, but he believes the public will see a different side of him after watching him on The Celebrity Apprentice. “I give 1,000 percent effort and I totally dove into the show,” he told us. “My timing and Mr. Trump’s timing weren’t in the same time zone. … I run on rocker time and that didn’t work out to my advantage.”

But he wants you to know the main reason he agreed to do the show in the first place was to raise money for his foundation. “When they approached me to do the show, I kept thinking about the awareness I could raise, and the Bret Michaels foundation where I use my own money to send kids to camp.”

He also the rules he lives by with us: “I love to play hard but I even it out by working hard,” he said. “I own having fun. You’ve got to enjoy something, or why go to work?”
