Rock star and Celebrity Apprentice competitor Bret Michaels is still in critical condition following a brain hemorrhage, and while fans around the world wait for word from his doctors, his Boardroom friends are all standing behind him.

Since Michaels was first hospitalized, Donald Trump and the other contestants on this season of The Celebrity Apprentice, currently airing Sundays at 9pm on NBC, have all shown their support for the Poison frontman.

Here's what some of them had to say in their own words:

Donald Trump on Today:
"He's really an amazingly competitive guy.  I feel a little guilty because I've been pretty rough on Bret, I've been really going after him.  Now I'm gonna be so nice to him, I'm gonna say, I hope, 'Bret, you're doing great.'"

Maria Kanellis to E!News:
"All you can do is hope and pray for him and his family. He's a strong man, so I hope he recovers very quickly."

Sharon Osbourne to Us Weekly:
"It's devastating, and it makes you feel all these different feelings.  Your heart goes out to his family, your heart goes out to him. He's the nicest guy in the world. And then you start thinking about your own mortality. You start thinking, 'Oh my God.' It just makes you appreciate how lucky you are."

Bill Goldberg to RadarOnline.com:
"I just spoke with Bret the day before he got sick, and I told him he had to slow down with his lifestyle. He was playing with his daughters in Arizona and was in really good spirits when we talked. I just hope that he can pull through from this and it acts as a wake-up call for him."

Cyndi Lauper to E!News:
"He is a strong-willed person, so I am feeling very positive that he will pull through like a champion.  My thoughts are with his family."

BuddyTV will have more on Bret Michaels' medical condition as it develops.
