Poison frontman Bret Michaels is blogging about his "Celebrity Apprentice" experience on Fancast.com.
"My first day there didn't go well because I ran on rocker time," Michaels writes. "Let's just say that Donald Trump time and Bret Michaels time are two different time zones."
What did I do on my summer vacation? Well, as Denise Richards would say: it's complicated. But here goes: It was supposed to be a fun-filled week's vacation on a little island in the south of Italy called Salina. One of my best friends from college and her husband own a hotel on the island, which is part of the Aeolian Islands, often frequented by stars like Sting and Bono.
Just back from a whirlwind trip to the south of France... the annual, and oh-so-sophisticated Cannes Film Festival, with the likes of Angelina and Brad (darn, I left just before they bought their new rockin' 70 mill chateau)... and, by the way, Angelina looks even more luminous up-close (if that's possible) now that she's a couple of months away from having their twins. What's she craving?? Hamburgers... in a town overwrought with crepes and baguettes.
But the moment I want to tell you about, which you could have NEVER seen on camera, was at a hotel called the Martinez on Le Croisette, and I was on my way up to the 7th floor to interview Cate Blanchett. Standing at the elevator in a very busy lobby, who should come walking right toward me, about to step into the same elevator?? Noneotherthan Sean Penn, this years Cannes Jury president, and Robin Wright Penn.
I hadn't seen Sean since the Palm Springs Film Festival, when he and I had a 'moment' off-camera at a party. It had just been announced that he and Robin were splitting, and I had a very nice conversation with him about his privacy, respect, the media, etc. Very enlightening to hear his perspective, and honestly, he's a very disarming and genuine man.
As I sit in London's Heathrow airport awaiting my flight to Nice, France, I wanted to catch you up on my latest red carpet romp: with Sarah Jessica, Kim, Kristen and, well, I'd like to say Cynthia, but she was rather missing-in-action on the carpet of her own world premiere. Oh, Ms. Nixon, if you please, was quite present (and when you spend a few days in England, you find yourself using the word 'quite' quite a bit), but for some strange reason, decided to diss most of the world press who attended.
Now, mind you, I was quite (there I go again) happy seeing the other young ladies, whom I've known for a long time, thanks to not just their HBO series which (finally) spawned this reunion movie, but because of their various movies they've made in the past.
Well, it's now 5:10 pm in the air somewhere between Portland and Los Angeles. What a whirlwind, and I mean whirlwind morning with Hillary, compounded by not only the encounter itself, but having to 'turn it around' as they say in industry-speak for today's show.
Got my 4 hours sleep, and I'm feeling it right about now, but I was running on pure adrenaline when I awoke this morning. I was going to interview the former First Lady, now Senator Hillary Clinton, and, I've got to tell you, I was a little nervous about it. I can pretty much talk to anyone, but to be sitting in front of a woman who has worked so hard to secure the Democratic nomination for President of the United States, and probably won't get it, was having an effect on me.
I was wondering if she would show any signs of depletion, of sadness, really...
