Bret Michaels Experiences A Meltdown After His Celebrity Apprentice Firing

When Bret Michaels sauntered out of Trump Tower after being the first celeb Donald Trump fired on Celebrity Apprentice: All-Stars Sunday night, he seemed to have taken his dismissal in rock star stride. As it turns out, the shock elimination sent Michaels into a breakdown and allegedly left him sobbing.

An insider source told RadarOnline that “Bret was crying and totally distraught after he was fired.” Aww…poor Bret! “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.”

Michaels was the only previous winner to return to the show. As he told CBS’s The Talk in his own words yesterday, “I got hired big on this show, and I got fired big.” So perhaps he was suffering from a tiny bit of an inflated ego?

RadarOnline’s source concurs. “Bret totally went into the show believing he was going to win again,” the source said. “He couldn’t believe it that he was let go so quickly. It was brutal to watch him freaking out the way he did.”

Cheer up, Bret! Maybe you didn’t win Celebrity Apprentice: All Stars, but you still rock a bandana better than anyone else – man or canine!
