Bret Michaels's road to recovery includes more than just returning to the stage.

He's sitting down to talk with Oprah Winfrey and hoping to attend the live Celebrity Apprentice finale on May 23, his rep said Friday.

"We really hope that Bret is well and able to join us at the finale," says Apprentice host Donald Trump. "I have much respect as he is a fighter and strong competitor."

Michaels, 47, who has been undergoing physical therapy twice a day since suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage April 21, has been a strong contender in the competition.

But before the finale, Michaels plans to make his first TV appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show in an episode set to air Wednesday.

He's also getting back to performing May 28 at the Hard Rock in Biloxi, Miss., and then kicking off a tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd on June 10 in Florida.
