The heart of Bret Michaels is a busy organ.

Last month, it was officially stolen by long-time girlfriend Kristi Gibson, who agreed to marry the reality show champion/rocker.

Now, today, possibly at this very moment, Michael is undergoing surgery at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center to repair a literal hole in his heart. This is the same facility where Bret was treated for a brain hemorrhage in April.

“Bret is looking forward to feeling 100 percent again,” his rep says.

We sure hope so! Send in your best wishes for a speedy recovery to this legend today!

UPDATE: It went well!

"Bret Michaels underwent a successful heart procedure today at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix," Bret's rep says, adding that his client "is currently recuperating at St. Joseph's where he remains for observation in ICU."

It seems like only a few months ago that Bret Michaels was a walking STD who may have slept with Tish Cyrus.

But the rocker reversed his image via his reality show finale on Monday night, proposing to the mother of his children, Kristi Gibson.

"It feels awesome," Michaels told People of the engagement. "When Kristi said, 'I don't need this ring, I don't need the piece of paper, I love you no matter what,' she took the pressure off."

Gibson turns 40 on Christmas Day and has been with Bret through the ups, downs and brain aneurysms.

"I love him for him," she told the magazine. "This is the best birthday and Christmas present ever. We'll be virgins stepping into the whole engagement and marriage thing. And with our girls growing up, we'll all have the same last name."

Gibson added that she doesn't want a big wedding and the pair may jet off to a tropical island in order to tie the knot.

After 16 years together, or at least sort of together (when he wasn't on Rock of Love or putting it to Tish Cyrus), Bret Michals and Kristi Gibson are engaged!

Bret proposed to Kristi - where else - on the finale of Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It on VH1. Gibson is the mother of his daughters Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5.

Down on one knee, the Poison frontman said, "Please say yes or the rejection will kill me right now." Fortunately for all of us, Gibson responded positively!

Bret Michaels and Kristi Gibson are engaged! Congratulations!

Gibson and their daughters stayed by Bret Michaels' side earlier this year when he suffered a terrifying brain hemorrhage and then a subsequent stroke.

"She's the one who put up with me all these years," Bret, who hinted this summer that he might finally put a ring on it, told Us Magazine of Kristi.

Immediately after Gibson accepted his proposal, he broke the happy news to the girls: "[I told them] 'I did it! We'll all be together forever! Family hug!'"

Bret Michaels has had sex with many, many, many, many, many, many women.

But he's adamant in this stance: Tish Cyrus is NOT one of them.

The rocker woke up today to allegations that he broke up Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus by having an affair with Miley's mom, a charge he denies. This is what the singer's rep had to say in response to the rumor:

"The reports of my client having an affair with Tish are completely unfounded and a complete fabrication.

"Bret has been a close friend of the family for some time and has worked with Miley. It's unfortunate that the sad breakup of Billy Ray and Tish has to be further tainted with these lies being reported."

Do you believe this story? Do you think Bret Michaels slept with Tish Cyrus?

Us Weekly drops a bombshell in its latest issue: the parents of Miley Cyrus got divorced because Tish Cyrus had an affair - with Bret Michaels!

Sources tell the tabloid that the rocker "got close to the entire family" in February, around the time he and Miley recorded their racy duet, "Nothing to Lose."

Tish, who serves as Miley's manager, was spotted at the Michaels' February 28 concert in Los Angeles, adds an insider, who says: "Billy Ray was completely unaware of what was going on."

Eventually, the country singer reportedly found out and filed for divorce from his wife of 17 years. He is seeking joint custody of their three children.

Reps for both Michaels and Tish deny this story, but Us Weekly stands by its family source, concluding: "It was a professional relationship that turned into something more."

How do we know that Bret Michaels is a changed man? Because he says in an interview that his upcoming reality show - titled Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It and premiering October 18 on VH1 - centers on his "two passions."

Neither of these includes banging groupies in the bathroom of his trailer. See, it's a whole new Bret!

"Viewers will see me interacting with my family and making music on the road," the rocker says of the series.

New Family Man

Michaels has two daughters (Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5) with Kristi Gibson, someone who has been in his life for over 16 years.

"[This] show is different because it is unprotected reality, proving how hard it is for me to balance my love for the girls and my work on the road," he says. "In the show, I learn both patience and negotiating skills from my daughters, and at the same time I talk to them about serious issues like life, death and protecting themselves from harm. It is totally fun!"

Will you tune in to this look at the unexpected family man?

A few months after overcoming a brain hemorrhage, the rocker has scheduled heart surgery for January. Says his rep: "It's for the hole his heart. I don't know any specifics."

Finally over the gang-banging-with-groupies phase of his life, Bret Michaels says he really might settle down with Kristi Gibson, the mother of his two daughters.

Asked for the odds of marrying his on-and-off girlfriend of 16 years, the rocker told People magazine at this weekend's Miss Universe pageant there's a "50/50" chance he'll propose.

"We've been talking a lot about getting engaged, and we'll see what happens," said Michaels, who co-hosted the event won by Jimena Navarrete of Mexico. "We just want to make sure we're not doing it for anyone other than ourselves." 

Bret and Family
