If you were like us, you watched Celebrity Apprentice wondering if, and how the hit NBC reality show would deal with the sudden and shocking illness of rocker Bret Michaels, one of the remaining contestants.
Since the show is taped months in advance, it would have been awkward, to say the least, if Michaels would be the one to hear those infamous two words, “You’re Fired!”
Fortunately, in the end, Donald Trump didn’t have the heart to fire anyone, since all of the celebs did an outstanding job in their task to come up with a creative fitness class for 24-hour fitness in New York.
The show did briefly acknowledge Michaels’ illness at the very end of the program: in the closing credits, a simple graphic wished the rocker a speedy recovery.
Celebrity Apprentice airs Sunday nights on NBC at 9/8c.
