Bret Michaels -- Painful, But Good

5/22/2010 4:40 AM PDT
Bret Michaels says he's at 75% these days -- which, considering all he's gone through over the past few months, is about 1,000% better than we would have expected.

Outside his home in AZ, Michaels said he'll see how he's feeling over the weekend, but for now he plans to be in NYC on Sunday for the finale of "The Celebrity Apprentice."

If you're rooting for Holly Robinson Peete to beat Bret ... you're probably not a fan of snow on Christmas morning.
