Bret Michaels’s Appendix Escapes


After narrowly escaping death at last year's Tony Awards, Bret Michaels has cheated the Grim Reaper again. Yesterday, after "suffering all day from severe stomach pains and what was assumed to be a severe case of the flu," Michaels was rushed to the hospital — mere minutes before he was to play a show in San Antonio — and diagnosed with acute appendicitis. He underwent an appendectomy at 1 a.m. this morning and is currently "doing well," say doctors. Also, his newly emancipated appendix has hired an agent and is already pitching a show to VH1. [ via AP]
