Now that Bret is fighting for his life, can you honestly say you don’t want him to win Celebrity Apprentice?

Bret Michaels‘ team, Rocksolid, got kicked around pretty hard on The Celebrity Apprentice last week — but they finally made a comeback on last night’s episode, winning Donald Trump‘s challenge and banking $40,000 for Bret’s charity of choice, the American Diabetes Association. But it was so bittersweet watching Bret celebrate his victory, knowing that he’s presently in the hospital under 24/7 doctor surveillance after suffering a debilitating brain hemorrhage. I don’t know about the rest of you, but Bret’s condition has definitely made me his #1 fan.

Now, don’t get me wrong — I think Bret is a great competitor, and I’d hope the best for him even if he was in perfect health. But the fact that doctors speculate his hemorrhage could have been connected to his own type 1 diabetes makes me even more hopeful that Bret will bring in as much money as he can to the American Diabetes Association. And the brief tribute message to Bret that aired after last week’s and last night’s episodes has really gotten to me both times.

It’s especially making me value him over Curtis Stone. I couldn’t agree more with what Sharon Osbourne and Cyndi Lauper said last night — that guy needs to go! He really does think he’s hot stuff, and he can’t see how his negativity is hurting his team. It was a big mistake sending Summer Sanders home last night over Curtis, just because she didn’t stand up for herself!
