Bret in `Celebrity Apprentice` finale

Los Angeles: Bret Michaels is expected to attend the season finale of ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ despite suffering what doctors called a warning stroke earlier this week.

His publicist, Joann Mignano, said the rocker is receiving outpatient care and will be in New York on Sunday for the season`s final episode of the NBC show.

Mignano previously confirmed Michaels had been diagnosed with a patent foramen ovale, or hole in the heart.

Doctors said the condition is operable and treatable and likely unrelated to the brain haemorrhage he suffered last month.

The 47-year-old, rocker-reality TV star was hospitalized this week after experiencing numbness on the left side of his body, particularly in his face and hands.
