Bret Michaels was watching 'Skin-e-max' when hemorrhage struck

So what was it that sent Bret Michaels', um, heart racing?

A naughty “Skin-e-max” flick.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the Poison frontman and current Celebrity Apprentice finalist ’fessed up to what he was watching on television when his near-fatal brain hemorrhage happened last month.

“I was going back and forth from SportsCenter to ‘Busty Cops 3,’ ” the rocker admits. “Maybe that’s what did it!"

    Patients with intraparenchymal bleeds have symptoms that correspond to the functions controlled by the area of the brain that is damaged by the bleed."^',

  2. let's be real

    Apparently Rusty Shackleford didn't get the joke Bret was making.

    His attempt at a legitimate insult towards Bret is as misplaced as someone who starts clapping at a funeral. Grow up and wish the man well. Learn to respect others and say nothing if you have nothing better to say.

    Get well, Bret.

    My mother had a cerebral hemorrage that gave her a stroke and she died when I was twelve. Stay healthy for the children, because they will miss having you in their life...

    now that he is back in the hospital, he'll make sure to keep that doo-rag on his bald head, lest anyone snap a photo of that chrome-dome

    Bret-stop trying to divert attention from that big ugly bald head!

    See...had he used a Picture in Picture TV then he wouldn't have had to choose–and just have both and then the crisis would have been adverted.
