Celebrity Apprentice star Gary Busey knows he's come a long way since his days of drug use, and he says the secret was learning to appreciate  himself.

"I was difficult in the past because I didn't get along with myself," Busey told TV Guide Network's Hollywood 411 in an exclusive at-home interview. "I know better now." 

Busey credits his girlfriend, 36 year-old actress Stephanie Sampson, and their 1-year-old son, Luke, for also helping him achieve a second chance. The couple is currently planning a wedding that celebrates Busey's New Age beliefs.
"We are going to do the ceremony in Sedona, Ariz.  It's a very spiritual place," Busey says. "It's got three vortexes in a two-and-a-half mile distance, which is a straight connection to the spiritual realm of the supernatural."

As for his run onCelebrity Apprentice, the charity Busey's playing for on hits close to home. The actor, who suffered a brain injury after a 1998 motorcycle accident, will donate his winnings to The Center For Head Injury Services. "Wear your helmets," Busey says. "And I know what I'm talking about."
