Beyond, it was because I felt it was really best for the dramatic arc of the series as a whole, and I didn't want to not do it.
Bret Michaels has lived with the diabeetus since childhood.
However, he's not gonna let the disease cramp his style!
Obviously you had hinted about this on the show before, but why kill Michael? I see the show as one whole long story, and this is always what would happen around the midpoint.
We kind of pushed and pulled with when it would happen, and we pushed till later, because Brett is just so magical and he and Gina are just so magical together.
