Most fans were ecstatic when they learned that Bret Michaels would be returning to NBC’s hit reality TV series Celebrity Apprentice, especially since he was the only former winner to be cast again. But on the premiere episode, that excitement turned to anger when Bret was the first celebrity fired by Donald Trump. Rumor has it that Michaels did not take the firing lightly, but was in tears instead!
Most of us thought that we would see a two time winner for the first time ever on Celebrity Apprentice when Poison frontman, Bret Michaels was cast this season. But in an odd turn of events, Michaels ended up being the first celebrity fired for the season. And while you may have been upset watching it all go down, no one was more upset than Michaels himself. According to Radar Online, a show insider spoke to them about Bret’s meltdown after being fired, and said: “Bret was crying and totally distraught after he was fired,” adding that it took many production people to calm him down.
While the folks behind the scenes were not expecting that reaction from Michaels, it was likely because he was not expecting to be fired so quickly. “I thought they were punking me,” Bret told the media this week, calling his firing “horrible.” Michaels also claims that his biggest mistake was choosing Omarosa for his team member, but he had a method to his madness, adding: “She is known as evil incarnate on TV. I figured, if I embraced it and unleashed her on the other team, we would win this hands down until we had to fight each other. That grenade blew up in my hand.” Yeah, leave it to good ole Omarosa.
Regardless of his meltdown at the time, Michaels had nothing but wonderful things to say about Donald Trump and his family. What a true class act Bret Michaels sure is.
