Professional wrestler and actor Bill Goldberg has exclusively told that he warned his Celebrity Apprentice co-star Bret Michaels about the dangers of constantly living the ‘Rock and Roll’ lifestyle 24/7 just a day before he suffered a brain hemorrhage.

And, as the 47-year-old rocker remains hospitalized in critical condition, Goldberg hopes that his friend can pull through and make a radical change to his lifestyle.

Goldberg - who was voted off Celebrity Apprentice just last week - told “I just spoke with Bret the day before he got sick and I told him he had to slow down with his lifestyle.

“He was playing with his daughters in Arizona and was in really good spirits when we talked. I just hope that he can pull through from this and it acts as a wake-up call for him.

“When I say the ‘Rock and Roll lifestyle’ I don’t mean Bret is taking lots of drugs and alcohol it’s just that he is a diabetic and he really has to look after himself by eating right and resting properly too.

“When we worked on the Celebrity Apprentice the schedule was really grueling and we would work from sun up to sun down most days.

“And Bret worked just as hard as anybody on that show without considering all his other commitments either.


“My own wife told me that I had to slow down and I realized that I must learn to listen to other people because you get so wrapped-up in your work schedule way too easily.

“To be fair Bret did listen to me when I offered my advice and he did take it with open arms but I know it is tough for him to make that change.

Meanwhile Bret’s other Celebrity Apprentice co-stars are “devastated” at the news and hoping he will fully recover.  Cyndi Lauper told, "Oh my God. It's so terrible, we're all so upset. My prayers are with him. He's a great guy. He's not a partier at all. Who ever is saying that doesn't know Bret at all. He's a really hard worker and he's a diabetic, so how could he be a partier? I just pray he's going to be okay. He's so nice to everyone on set. We're all devastated and waiting on pins and needles to hear if he's going to be okay."

As previously reported, Michaels remains hospitalized in critical condition Monday under round-the-clock medical care, less than five days after the rocker-turned-reality TV star suddenly fell ill from a brain hemorrhage.
