Bret Michaels will make his first TV appearance since suffering a brain hemorrhage on Wednesday’s episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” People reports. He’s also planning to attend the live “Celebrity Apprentice” finale on May 23, his rep told the magazine Friday (May 13).
The rep confirmed reports that Michaels is aiming to be back on the road in time for his May 28 show at the Hard Rock in Biloxi, Mississippi.
The 47-year-old Poison rocker, who suffered a nearly fatal brain hemorrhage last month, was discharged from a Phoenix hospital on May 4.
Michaels is reportedly stepping up his physical therapy to get back in shape for the Mississippi show on his postponed Roses & Thorns Tour. That outing was first interrupted when Michaels underwent an emergency appendectomy on April 12.
At a May 4 press conference, Michaels’ doctors said he was doing well, walking and talking and expected to make a 100 percent recovery. At the time, physicians said he was still subject to painful blood clots, back pain and headaches. His doctor predicted at the time that Michaels might be able to resume regular activities within four to six weeks but said that he warned Michaels not to make any promises about when he would get back to work.
