Even though Bret Michaels suffered a “warning stroke” that put him BACK into the hospital his rep tells us Bret has been released and will be in NYC this weekend for the finale of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice!

Bret Michaels, 47, will not let his medical scares keep him down! Despite suffering a near devastating subarachnoid brain hemorrhage Apr. 21 and a warning stroke just a few days ago, the Poison frontman is determined to appear at NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice May 23 in NYC!

Just as Bret was getting back on his feet , he went back into the hospital after feeling a numbing sensation in an arm and hand. “He felt numbness and tingly in his arm and hands,” says his rep. “One side had a numb sensation and also he felt numb on the side of his face.” But the same doctor who treated him for the hemorrhage, Dr. Joseph Zabramski, examined him and said it was a “warning stroke” and that Bret has a “hole in his heart.” Dr Zabramski, has already said that Bret doesn’t have any more chance of having a second brain hemorrhage, than any other person.

But Bret is now 100% planning on competing in the season finale of Donald Trump‘s Celebrity Apprentice this Sunday. ” As far as I know he is coming to the season finale in NYC,” says his rep. “We are cautiously optimistic that he will attend. Plus, “he’s booked for all shows in NYC — Today Show, Regis and Kelly and Leno, either way- win or lose-  on Monday.”

Not only will Bret appear on the season finale he is STILL planning on kicking off his solo tour May 28 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Mississippi.

“As far as I know the tour is on,” says his rep.
