An update on Bret Michaels and Jimmy Buffett: Both music stars were recently hospitalized for completely different reasons, and both have been released.

Michaels, who recently checked into St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix to undergo heart surgery, was released yesterday, according to Us Weekly. The reality show star, who successfully recuperated from a brain hemorrhage earlier this year, is expected to fully recover in a few weeks, according to his doctor.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Buffett -- who fell onstage earlier this week during a concert in Australia -- was discharged from a hospital in Sydney after suffering from head injuries brought about by his tumble. According to his doctors, Mr. "Come Monday" was lucky enough to walk away from the incident without any serious damage.

First it was a rash of pregnancies, now it is a rash of hospitalizations. The latest: Charlie Sheen. Reports are he was hospitalized for "intestinal distress" but some are saying it was after an all night party.

That noise you hear is thousands of people adding Sheen to their dead pool.
