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.

I was so shocked and saddened when I heard Bret was in critical condition. Wonderful news that he's awake & joking w/nurses! He seems like such a nice person on The Celeb Apprentice. I really hope he gets well soon. I am going to continue to send Bret all the positive, healing thoughts for a quick and complete recovery! Love is coming atcha, Bret, from all over the universe!!! OXOXOXO

It never ceases to amaze me how many attention-seeking, unfeeling, ignorant morons like JCThc and others here who have commented nasty things, saying stuff like they hope Bret dies, etc. Bret is a kind, compassionate human being who would never say those bitter comments if the tables were turned. Shame on JCThc and those of that ilk.

Do you realize that these reports of progress are nearly identical to what people said after Capt. Phil Harris suffered a stroke? He" was up,talking, walking around, things look good", and then he died. I will never believe anything I read online again. My prayers are with Bret and his family.

Your many millions of fans are praying and wishing/hoping the very best for you, Bret. There is a lot of love out there for you and a lot of empathy. You are one cool dude, and we miss you.

BTW, CNN is ***NOT*** reporting that Bret died, as of 4:30 a.m. (East Coast), so ignore that idiotic, immature, and pathetically cruel post.

This is to "debbie" who keeps saying that Bret couldn't possibly be talking, that he is a vegetable, etc-
So, debbie...are you at Bret's bedside? You state these things as fact, but Bret's father has said that he , himself spoke to Bret on the phone Friday!
"He sounded upbeat and positive, but they had him sedated," Sychak said. "But he's doing good."

So, debbie, unless you know more than his own father, please STFU.
