I have a hard time believing the two incidents aren't related.

I wonder if this heart condition caused his brain hemorrhage two weeks ago---and the doctor's missed that this heart defect was the CAUSE of the brain hemorrhage.

I just read some information on Patent Foreman Ovale (PFO), and it can cause subarachnoid hemorrhage like Bret had a few weeks ago.

Poor Bret can't get a break.

While MRI and CT scan tests were being conducted, Michaels also received a Doppler Ultrasound of his legs and lower abdomen looking for blood clots and most importantly an Ultrasound Bubble Test of his heart was conducted which proved positive for a Patent Forum Ovale (PFO), a hole in the heart. Dr. Zabramski (Bretís neurosurgeon), Dr. Becker (who ordered the test), Dr. Cook (who conducted the test) and Dr. Frey (Director, Outpatient Stroke Program) all confirmed the results.

Wow you guys have all the info!! I'm really upset about the Hollyrod foundation. I care for a 10yr old boy who is autistic, non verbal, there are so many budget cuts state wide and nation wide, I suppose, I'm surprised there is any help at all. Then to hear about their contributions, WoW, makes me sick!! I hope Trump comes down hard on her charity!!

Sharon??? Just no words with all the acting, crying...talk about a big girl panty party!! I didn't buy one word of her, I can't take it from Holly because of her child!!

Yes.
I confess that I do not follow modern music, so I am probably one of the few people who did not know who Cyndi was.

I grew to like and respect her because she does not seem phoney like the others and everything she did/touched went well, so she knows what she is doing.

She's a good person and probably the only one on this presentation of the App. that I wouldn't mind knowing better. I respect her. Her voice is also versatile. It was refreshing to see her honesty against the backdrop of so many pretenders.

wonder if Bret will be able to attend the Live Finale Sunday nite???

Just last night I was finally able to catch last week's show.
Unless the show is just edited to make it seem so-there is no way Bret can beat Holly. She has it going on and Bret is too all over the place.
Of course we know how editing is on these shows.......

Maybe Holly will be proven a fraud and they will give ALL that money earned to Brett's charity.

I think Sharon wanted to be fired. That kind of outburst was not typical for her.

I agree. She was bored and or tired and the crying was an act. She's much stronger than she portrayed.

According to a tweet by Holly on the Celebrity Apprentice page, she's playing for hollyrod4kids - HollyRod4kids (HollyRod4kids) on Twitter I can't find the charity at the charity link
Office of the Attorney General - Edmund G. Brown Jr., Attorney General

Didn't she say she was playing for HOLLYROD?

This morning I saw a scroll on the news, stating that Bret had the hole in his heart patched and he has been released from the hospital
