Bret’s shocking elimination from the All-Stars Celebrity Apprentice Sunday night shocked audiences, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that no-one was more stunned by the decision than Michaels himself.
“Bret was crying and totally distraught after he was fired,” a show insider tells Radar.
“Bret totally went into the show believing he was going to win again,” the source says. “He couldn’t believe it that he was let go so quickly. It was brutal to watch him freaking out the way he did.”
“It was a mess when Bret was told the news and filming was done,” the source says. “He couldn’t stop crying and even the producers were trying to comfort him. No one expected him to have a meltdown like that.”
