Based on Rock of Love, we already knew that Bret Michaels possessed a sheer will to get with groupies on his tour bus.

But now we know there's one thing this rock star cares about even more: living.

As his condition continues to improve, Michaels' neurosurgeon at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix is marveling at Bret's recovery and attitude.

"There is no doubt that Mr. Michaels' condition is serious," Dr. Zabramski said this week, following the singer's subarachnoid hemorrhage on April 22. "Bret's sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable. He has an unbelievable fight in him and told me what kept him alive at the moment of the hemorrhage was that he did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor."

Michaels has two daughters, Raine and Jorja, ages nine and four.

He's also a diabetic who has suffered through numerous "roadblocks," Zabramski said, including "hyponatremia, severe cranial and back pain suffered from blood drainage." His patient in stable condition, the doctor added:

"It was a combination of Bret's fight to stay conscious during the hemorrhage and get to the emergency room, and the immediate medical attention provided by our staff at Barrow that enabled us to stabilize his condition.”

The team at Barrow will hold press conference on Tuesday, in which surgeons will update Michaels' progress even more.

It was a quality celebrity rumor: Lady Gaga had a leg amputated below the knee just 'cause she thought it'd be cool and "different." Sadly, it's not true.

Well, fortunately is more like it.

Totally Gaga

Despite reports that this is "accurate and based on facts," and she dropped the bombshell "whilst hopping around the studio," don't believe the hype.

The Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumor, however? That we leave to you to draw conclusions on. The pics are more conclusive than her "peg leg" ones.

Hilariously, the Fame singer's record-label rep was actually asked him to confirm, deny or clear up the leg amputation rumor, and finally replied Saturday:

"It's not true," the rep said.

Lady Gaga: Two legs to stand on. This rumor: Zero.

It's surprising it even made this far and a rep addressed it. No "Exclusive: Lady Gaga Amputates Leg" headlines on any reputable site was one clue.

As was the lack of any doctored Lady Gaga pictures looking even remotely real. Besides, when would the alleged operation have even happened?

Lady Gaga is a touring machine, most recently taping a performance for American Idol. The girl hops around, but only figuratively.

Not to mention the logistical and ethical impossibility of a doctor doing this: "I do not know any country or any location where this has happened, or would be considered legally or ethically correct," sums up one plastic surgeon.

Finally, a suggestion for rumor-starters: Next time, say if it's the left or right leg and throw in more medical "details." Makes it more convincing ... and funny.

As for how this got started, Lady Gaga's amputated leg is the work of Britain's Daily Squib, which posted a peg-leg photo and an article about Gaga's "new look."

The April 24 piece was meant as a satire, but peeps actually ran with it. Nice work!

So much for that pledge to shut up mercifully until May 13. Michael Lohan will be back in L.A. Monday ... and he's already telling people that he's going to start the legal ball rolling to create a conservatorship for Lindsay Lohan.

That would leave him, or a court-appointed third party, in charge of the actress' finances, career, medical decisions and pretty much her whole life.

Hey, it worked for Britney Spears.

No word if he would actually be granted such a role, but Mike says he'd gladly serve as conservator but is open to someone else in the role as well.

Lindsay is in New York City right now but refuses to see her father, who has been angling to meet with her for weeks. Michael says it's now time.

This photo of Michael Lohan has absolutely nothing to do with this article or his turbulent relationship with Lindsay Lohan. Though in a way it explains so much.

Michael Lohan also says he does not want his daughter to go to jail, and fears that she will die, as do many people close to her and on our staff.

In the immediate future, however, jail is the more imminent threat.

Lindsay Lohan is likely to be jailed because she has squarely violated the terms of her probation in her DUI case and a big court day of May 20 looms.

Michael wants Lindsay in rehab but not a traditional, group facility. He wants to go the Brooke Mueller route - a private home with lots of doctors. 

What Michael isn't factoring in, of course, is how that type of rehab is real expensive and Lindsay has no job and is saddled with credit card debt.

It's the thought that counts, though.

Has President Barack Obama been having an affair with Vera Baker? That's the shocking allegation made by the National Enquirer in this week's edition.

The publication claims Obama and Baker, a former campaign aide, holed up at Washington, D.C. hotel, and a "security video" could expose everything!

Baker, now 35, worked tirelessly to get Obama elected to the U.S. Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions, in 2004. They grew close since.

While Vera Baker insists that "nothing happened" between them, the Enquirer says anti-Obama "operatives" are digging hard into the alleged affair.

Some are reportedly offering $1 million for information confirming it.

El Presidente

Did Barack Obama and Vera Baker have an affair? That's the allegation of sources who claim the former aide is now his mistress - and claim there's evidence out there.

According to the celebrity gossip tabloid, a limo driver (anonymous of course) claims he drove Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous with the President.

He says he drove Baker "from a friend's home in the D.C. area to the Hotel George where I learned later that Obama would be spending the night."

The driver recalled that he "waited in the lobby while she went to change her outfit. But to the best of my knowledge she did not have a room at the hotel and she was not staying there so I thought that it was a bit odd."

He says he picked up Barack Obama at the airport and drove both he and Vera Baker to various locations while he was raising money.

Troubled actress Jodie Sweetin is pregnant with her second child, reports say.

The former Full House star, who has fought a well-documented fight against alcohol and crystal meth, is expecting a baby with her BF, club DJ Morty Coyle.

It's been a whirlwind courtship for Sweetin and Coyle, with the ink barely dry on the papers finalizing her divorce from Cody Herpin, her second husband.

Divorced as of April 20, the couple has a two-year-old daughter, Zoie.

Jodie Sweetin is newly divorced ... and knocked up!

The National Enquirer says Herpin is furious Sweetin is having another baby: “Raising a child takes a lot of time and patience. Jodie hasn’t put in nearly enough time with our own daughter. And now she’s having another child!”

In 2008 Sweetin was arrested on suspicion of DUI, shockingly she had her then eight-month-old daughter in the car with her. Herpin took Sweetin to court.

Now, Herpin claims he only learned of Sweetin's latest pregnancy during the finalization of their divorce. Cody laments: “I find it hard to believe Jodie will keep up her sobriety with the choices she keeps making. To have a child is no small thing.

Congratulations, Jodie and Morty, we think!

For the first time outside the comfort of his Late Show set, David Letterman addressed his recent sex scandal during a rare visit to Live with Regis & Kelly.

After Regis Philbin posed a potentially awkward question about Letterman's home life, Dave opened up with sincerity about cheating on wife Regina Lasko.

"I don't know if people know this, but I've had some trouble," he joked. "You know when something like this happens - and mostly it was reckless behavior on my part - if you behave recklessly and it hurts your family, then of course it hurts you.

"It was not a tragedy, it was just stupidity. And thank God, because we all know what tragedies are, and we all know how horrifying and scarring... and you just can't get beyond some of these. We all know what we're talking about."

If nothing else, Letterman is refreshingly candid about his own failings.

"You read about [these tragedies] every day. It's just godawful. And when you're a parent, this is your worst nightmare. So it wasn't that, thank God."

What it was, Letterman continued uninterrupted about the extortion case that blew the lid off his affair with staffer Stephanie Birkitt, was stupidity.

Pure stupidity, with no one to blame but himself.
