After supposedly criticizing The Price Is Right and new host Drew Carey yesterday, Bob Barker is clarifying his statements.

He says:

“I would not criticize Drew Carey. I would not criticize this show. I would not criticize CBS. I would not criticize FremantleMedia (which produces the show for the network) because I have a sizable royalty that I am paid every year this show is on, and it’s going on for years. I would be an absolute fool. I hope this show stays on for years.

"As for Drew, he’s been charming and complimentary, and he had me on the show to plug my book Priceless Memories. He devoted half of the show to me! He’s a charming man, and kind and gracious. To think that I would say anything derogatory about him is idiocy.”

Barker also added that when he left the show he advised Carey to "do the show your way. And that's what he has done. Obviously, it's successful."

As for Bob, he's going to "keep his mouth shut" walking down the street from now on!

And there you have it!

    A black man, but alone; a white lady, but life is not that nice. Desire a mingle of black and white?

    Re: PrinceD
    Wouldn't the fact that he's been on the show for a long time and it's been successful partly to him, earn him the "RIGHT" to have an opinion? Uhhhh…

    Bob should go ride on the ship he donated to those Whale Wars crackpots while they try to police the high seas in international waters and try to stop the Japanese ships from legally whaling.
