Bret Michaels -- Stabilized

4/24/2010 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0423_brett_michaels_EX_TMZ_01Bret Michaels is awake, in good spirits and talking ... TMZ has learned.

Ambre Lake, the Season 2 winner of "Rock of Love," tells TMZ she's spoken with people who are close to Bret who say he's stabilized and conscious. 

Lake's tale matches another contestant who has also spoken with Bret's bandmates.

We're told the next 24 to 48 hours are critical -- Bret will be closely monitored.

To the one posing as TMZ staff:

You should be ashamed of yourself posting a link to a rape story! You are beyond repulsive and I hope one day your sick joke will come back at you ten fold.

Bret, you are one in a million and you can do this. Easy and slow...for a while and then when you are feeling better, easy and slow. This is what it is going to take to heal but no problems, take the time and write some new songs and then let someone else bring that song to life...remember easy and slow and this time next year expect to see you sitting on the opposite side of the Boardroom critiquing the contestants. Peace, love, and prayers to you and yours.

People are so gullable to believe a story on here from a skank from a tv show! His own website just posted yesterday saying that there are wrong stories out there and that he is still in critical condition. I wouldn't get my "news" from a gossip site if I were you. Please just pray for him.

little hard to believe he is awake and in good spirits....not after a brain bleed like that close to the brain stem.

All other news outlets say he is still in critical condition. WTF? Why would TMZ take some used up hookers word on Bret Michaels condition, as opposed to, oh I don't know,... a doctor, his publicist, or family member??

TMZ, I really can't believe you were naive enough to post this. If a couple of trashy pigs whose life ambitions are to leech off of whatever celebrity wallet they can shake their fake cans at are your so called "sources," then it seems I've got to find another entertainment news website. As we obviously know, and as numerous others have stated, he's not awake and is still critical. Do a little better research next time, or for God's sake, friend him on facebook, how freaking hard is it to get it right.
