I'm so thrilled at this news! He and his family have been in my prayers.
I also didn't know much of anything about Bret before Celebrity Apprentice. I knew he was in Poison, but the extent of my knowledge of that band is the "Every Rose..." song. Knew he was on Rock of Love on VH1, but never saw it. Yet he is hands down my favorite contestant on this show! Really hard worker, really creative, and doesn't shy away from responsibility. Seems like a total sweetheart too. Love him! Hope he wins the whole thing, and, more importantly, recovers fully.
