Bret Michaels -- Precautions for 'Apprentice' Finale

5/23/2010 6:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Getting fired isn't the only concern for Bret Michaels on tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice" finale  -- and TMZ has learned medical precautions will be taken due to Bret's condition. 

A source close to the show tells us there will definitely be a medical staff at the live taping tonight ... “ready in case anything happens.” Michaels suffered a brain hemorrhage on April 22 and was briefly hospitalized for heart problems last week.

We're told Bret is in NY and will be at rehearsals today for tonight's show.

Reps for Bret had no comment.

@ Kaylee you're a liar! All anyone has to do is go to the SNAPPLE website and BOTH drinks are available! So stop spreading lies and rumors. Bret was destined for being the voice for Diabetes of America. God has the final word and Holly is on her own mission solely because she wants sympathy and pity. Bret shows a geniune heart toward the cause and wants to find a cure! Period and point blank!

@Kaylee and @ proud2beblack.

My thought was maybe Brett's SOLD OUT! (smile) a good thing!
Also @proud2beblack. I agree with God has a reason. And there could very well be a reason Brett is in NYC tonight? After talking about the good Doc and hospital in NYC ya never know what the Man above has planned for us. I think there is a reason for ever fork or path we take and maybe a very good one we yet not know for why Bret is going against all advise to be there tonight.
I again wish him well and Well said proud2beblack! esp about Holly and my Daughter has LD so I know the cause and support both.. But there is something about her that gets me at how she went about her tasks and the tude on her is unreal. Hello she is not the only women in the world with a child with LD's again I know all to well and I am still hoping Bret wins!

Re: #15 comment by Rob: You're a pig! If you don't have anything nice to say, DON'T say anything at all! You have no heart nor soul.

Bret, I have grown to really like you as a person, performer and celebrity. I wish you all the best for a speedy recovery, lots of good fortune in your future, and luck on tonight's show. You're quite a man! Your loved ones and friends are lucky to know you and have you in their lives. Be strong!

Want to know why?

Doctors and nonsense for someone to be sitting down during a show.


Caring for yourself or others WHILE THIS DINK IS DRIVING.

That bandana is holding his wig on to tight.

Rob, you are one sick mofo; mustn't have any reasons to live of your own with that kind of "personality."

Michaels looks awful in this pic. I think the man need to go home and take a LOOOOONNNNGGG rest out of the public eye.

I used to like Holly but got really annoyed at the way she was so condescending to Cindy and her overall superior nose up towards everyone but especially Cindy.

I am on Team Brett!
