Bret makes `Celebrity Apprentice` finals
New York: Rock star Bret Michaels will get to play the final round of `The Celebrity Apprentice`.
The Poison frontman passed muster with host Donald Trump on Sunday`s edition and he`ll be back for next week`s live conclusion. Michaels will square off against actress Holly Robinson Peete to settle who wins the NBC reality competition.
Fired Sunday were wrestler-model Maria Kanellis, Australian chef Curtis Stone, and rock-star wife and TV personality Sharon Osbourne.
"I came in here as a complete underdog," Michaels crowed after hearing the good news in Trump`s boardroom. "You know what everyone`s mistake was? They so underestimated me!"
Michaels` presence in the series, which through Sunday`s episode had been taped months ago, stoked viewer interest after he suffered a brain hemorrhage in April that left him in intensive care. He has since been released from a Phoenix hospital. His doctor has said he is expected to make a full recovery.
The current season of "Celebrity Apprentice" began airing in March with 14 contestants, each competing in business-oriented tasks around Manhattan to raise money for (and publicize) their favorite charities.
Michaels, who as a child was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, chose the American Diabetes Association. Robinson Peete`s charity is her HollyRod Foundation, whose mission is to support families who have a loved one with a serious medical condition. She has a son diagnosed as autistic.
