Rocker and reality star Bret Michaels is the winner of "The Celebrity Apprentice," besting actress Holly Robinson Peete.
Donald Trump told Michaels he was "hired" in Sunday's finale of the reality, winning $250,000 for his charity of choice, the American Diabetes Association.
But runner-up Peete was a winner as well, learning that her charity for autism would receive the same amount of money.
Michaels' appearance on the finale, which included live and taped sequences, had been in question after he suffered a brain hemorrhage in April and was hospitalized again recently after suffering what doctors called a warning stroke. He faces surgery for a hole in his heart.
