Bret Michaels Has Meltdown After Elimination

Bret Michaels had a meltdown after he was fired by Donald Trump on All-Stars Celebrity Apprentice.

Michaels, who is best known as the singer from the 80s hairband Poison, didn’t handle his dismissal from the reality show very well.

According to Radar Online, Michaels had an absolute meltdown after Trump said his famous words: You’re Fired.

A source said:

“Bret was crying and totally distraught after he was fired… Bret totally went into the show believing he was going to win again… He couldn’t believe it that he was let go so quickly. It was brutal to watch him freaking out the way he did.”

The Hollywood Reporter notes that Michaels initially thought that Trump was joking when he got fired.

Michaels said:

“I thought they were punking me. I looked around to see what they were talking about.”

So why was Michaels fired? Well, it depends on who you ask.

Trump said that it was a mistake for Michaels to come back as a contestant instead of a boardroom adviser like Piers Morgan did. Trump also said that he couldn’t justify keeping Michaels on the show because the rockstar’s funding efforts weren’t on par with his competitors.

Michaels, on the other hand, said that he was fired because he partnered up with Omarosa.

Michaels said:

“She is known as evil incarnate on TV… I figured, if I embraced it and unleashed her on the other team, we would win this hands down until we had to fight each other. That grenade blew up in my hand.”

Here’s the video of Donald Trump firing Bret Michaels.

Bret handled his firing well while on the TV show but a Radar Online source says that once the cameras were up Michaels had a complete meltdown.

The source adds:

“It was a mess when Bret was told the news and filming was done… He couldn’t stop crying and even the producers were trying to comfort him. No one expected him to have a meltdown like that.”

Are you surprised that Bret Michaels was so broken up about being fired from The Celebrity Apprentice?

Bret may be done on Celebrity Apprentice but he’ll soon be back on reality TV. He is currently getting ready for the premiere of a new Travel Channel show, Rock My RV.

    The media has once again bent the truth. Bret made it clear that the ONLY reason he came back was to win money for his charity. He looked at it as opportunity to give back. I think Donald was in the wrong. Project managers have always been fired because they were… the project manager. The fact that Brandi was clueless about who won what, how many meatballs were sold and made, etc., made her incompetent. I think Bret is too nice of a guy to return on this show and if Donald was so concerned about his returning, then they shouldn't have allowed him to and asked him instead to sit where Piers Morgan was sitting. Bret even said in the boardroom to Donald that he ASKED to come back as a judge and Donald declined. I was disappointed after the show. Donald is truly an idiot.

    well he may have been fired but he sure still has a head full of nice hair that trump couldn't buy with all the money in the world.

    I am in total agreement with you Barbara! Brandi should have been fired. Trump had it in for Brett from the start. Why didn't he just tell him up front I won't take you back on the show cause I can't have you win again and I will let you go right away. he had his mind set, Brett would be fired first time brought into the board room. DONE… it was wrong!!!

    It's Brett who chose Amarosa first and then couldn't resist Brandi on her knees. I was afraid the stress of the show would be too much for Brett, who had a stroke after he did the last show. Maybe he'll be back on the other side of the table. Just watch.

    Another TV ratings stunt – keep Amarosa, Miss Evil so viewers will watch and the Playboy bunny so men will watch. If this was real business – Brandi would of been gone due to her inability to manage the task. Stay tuned and watch Ms Evil get her way, cause issues and stay on for a while……I'm done with this already – have fun.

    Airhead Brandi should have been fired. Especially since Trump blamed her for not bring Omarosa into boardroom. So Brett paid the price for that mistake not Brandi. So what how much money she raised. That is what is wrong with Celebrity Apprentice. It's all about the money so people have an unfair advantage. Troy Aiken showed how unimportant the tasks were–he had no interest in going through with it and ultimately won the task! This show really screwed up. Brett did not deserve to go home. He is one of the smartest, hardest working, multitalented, creative people on the show. It is unforgiveable what happened to him on the first episode.

    LMAO,,, Trump is the worst businessman I have ever seen! This guy is such a sham, why anybody would want to be on this show is mind boggling. This is the only way Trump can make any money, and its NBC's idea. Trump is such a great businessmaan, he sold Trump plaza recently for 26 million, only problem, he paid 217 million for it..LOL…his real estate and development company is in perpetual bankruptcy. It is such a joke that he is touted as a SUCCESSFUL businessman. Why do you people watch this crap.

    You people actually believe that this is NOT all scripted, fake and even advertised here so you will watch it? No wonder the world is screwed. You are all retarded by normal standards and applications which do not apply these days anyways………
