NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" tonight (Sunday May 2) sees the remaining contestants create radio promos, and Sharon and Curtis are reportedly going to have some serious words.
Osbourne lays waste anyone with her acid-tinged tongue, and Stone is a tough cookie. It should be fun.
NBC reveals Cyndi Lauper has issues on this episode of "Apprentice" and insists she is only well enough to sing back up. Bret Michaels gets his game face on as each team must create three radio spots for Clockwork Home Services.
To impress the executives, the teams must create original commercials for the company's plumbing, electrician and heating and air conditioning services, and one team may have creatively gone too far.
According to NBC, when one celebrity questions anotherís ability to perform, fireworks occur. Donald Trump sends another celebrity home as he is aided by his kids, Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.
What will make this episode all the more compelling is the real-life drama of ailing Bret Michaels, who has been fighting for his life in a hospital after suffering a brain bleed.
Michaels' doctors at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Ariz. are planning to hold a press conference on Tuesday to update the press and his fans on where Bret stands.
"There is no doubt that Mr. Michaels' condition is serious. We are treating the subarachnoid hemorrhage, which caused his severe cranial pain," says Joseph Zabramski, a top neurosurgeon at Barrow Neurological Institute since 1986 and leader of Michaels' team in the press release.
Zabramski says "Michaels will continue to undergo testing, considering we have hit a few roadblocks including hyponatremia, severe cranial and back pain suffered from blood drainage, an emergency appendectomy performed a week earlier and a lifelong history of Type 1 Diabetes."
However, "Bret's sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable," says Zabramski. "He has an unbelievable fight in him and told me what kept him alive at the moment of the hemorrhage was that he 'did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor.' It was a combination of Bret's fight to stay conscious during the hemorrhage and get to the emergency room, and the immediate medical attention provided by our staff at Barrow, that enabled us to stabilize his condition."
Who is going home tonight?
