Bob Barker Upset Over Price Is Right Rodeo Prize

Filed under: TV NewsHorsesAnimal CrueltyFurBob Barker

During Bob Barker's run as host of Price Is Right there were never any cruel products offered as prizes.

He made sure they kept fur coats and cars with leather interiors off the show.

And now he is outright furious over the show's recent promotion of cowhide boots and the Calgary Stampede, a deadly rodeo.

Bob said:

"I am appalled and disgusted. First, tickets to SeaWorld and now the Calgary Stampede, which is notorious for horses falling to their deaths.

This never would have happened on my watch. I'm thankful to Drew Carey for keeping up my plea to spay and neuter your pets, but where is the show going in the quest for prizes?

You have to wonder what's next—a trip to Alaska to shoot wolves?"

We hope that Price Is Right will listen to Bob after all his years of service.

He of all people should still have some pull at that show.

Three Of Bob Barker's Lions Have Been Released From Rehab

Congrats!

Three of the 29 lions rescued by the former Price Is Right host, Bob Barker, won the show case of a lifetime!

Bolivia became the first country in South America to outlaw the use of animals in circuses last year, and the 87-year-old TV icon paid for the seized animals to be airlifted to Denver, where they have spent months getting checked out by veterinarians and having their teeth fixed at the Wild Animal Sanctuary.

Today, three of the rehabilitated lions will be released into a savannah-like habitat on the plains of eastern Colorado, with water and underground dens.

No word yet if the big cats have been spayed or neutered.

Oh No! Bob Barker Collapsed At Shooting Range!

Filed under: Super SeniorsSad Sad

Thankfully, he is okay!

Yesterday, the former Price Is Right host, Bob Barker, gave us all a scare after he collapsed at an El Lay shooting range. Sources at the scene say that Bob fainted in the middle of shooting, but regained consciousness when the ambulance arrived.

Bob's rep informed sources that Bob was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and doctors concluded that it was a mixture of dehydration and a reaction to his blood thinner medication. But all is well, as Bob should be released from Cedars soon and he'll just have to take it easy for awhile.

Well, yeah! The man is 86-years-old. If ever there was a time to calm it down…

Feel better, Bob! While you're in Cedars, make sure you influence your nurses to have their pets spayed or neutered.

Bob Barker Doesn't Like Pregnant Women

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSuper Seniors

Bob Barker may be kind to animals, but he doesn't seem to treat the opposite sex very well!

Another Barker Beauty has come out and accused the former Price is Right host of firing her as soon as he found she got knocked up!

Shane Stirling claims that in December 2006, she was "forced into an early pregnancy leave, was not allowed to return to work for almost a year after her child's birth, and was fired abruptly."

She says, "The host of the game show had always been very kind and generous to Stirling until he learned that she was pregnant."

When she tried to stay on the show while preggers, Barker told her that it was "dangerous" and a "liability," and he advised her to "go home and take care of your baby."

Whe she returned after giving birth, Stirling claims that she was given the heave-ho so now she's suing for more than $25,000.

Yikes!

This is the 2nd former Barker Beauty to sue the show this year after being fired for getting pregnant.

Hopefully nice guy Drew Carey doesn't follow in Bob's woman-hating ways.

Drew Carey Reveals How He Lost A Shitload Of Weight!

Filed under: Inspiration

drewcarey.jpg

Wow, Drew Carey is looking skinny!

The Price is Right host has lost 80 lbs. by going on a strict diet, eliminating carbs, and hitting the gym non-stop. For him, that means at least 45 minutes of cardio a day - six days a week!

The comedian said he was diabetic with Type-2 diabetes, adding, "It sucks being fat, you know."

But since losing all those LBs since January, he says, "I'm not diabetic anymore. No medication needed."

Good for him! We're proud of you, Drew!

Bob Barker Backpedals!

Filed under: TV News

bobwenn5279745__opt1.jpg

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!
